    Hi

    Looking to replace the SUB from the mark1 KEF eggs. What is the best sub to go for considering that I need a small compact sub. I do not have the room for larger boxes!
    I have read all the negative comments about the REL Q150E but is it going to do a better job than the KEF??....Or should I try and get the Mark 2 KEF sub. Surely the Q150e cant be THAT bad:rolleyes:

    It isn't that bad but it isn't good value for money as it is quite expensive for what it is. Have a look at the offerings from MJ Acoustics instead which are cheaper and probably better

    The new REL Q150 Mk2 is a big improvmement on its predecessor. It's not the deepest delving sub around but build quality is exceptional and its pretty tight and punchy. Oh and yes it will wipe the floor with either of the Kef subs.

    What have they changed? There no mention of it on their site.

    I'd be very suprised if they have improved it sufficiently to make it a better buy than the XLS200 at £279. The original Q150E is an absolute rip-off in comparison (understandable when you compare the business models of BK and REL). bwstsw posted some pics of his XLS200 in another forum:
