    I don't know if its upgraditis or not, but I've got a really strong urge to swap my Mission M70AS for a Rel Q200E.
    The greater power in a more compact box seems hugely apealing.
    What d'ya think?
    Would I see big improvements?

    Just lost out on a Rel Q200E on Ebay so I'm looking into the SVS 25-31 PCI now.
    I will find something me and wifey are happy with soon. Promise.:rolleyes:

    The Velodyne SPL800 is probably worth a look, that being the case. It's about £150 more than the likes of the Q200E, B&W ASW675, MJA Reference 150 etc but smaller and most likely a better performer, mainly thanks to a more powerful amp and servo-feedback tech.

    You will see improvements, but it's not wise to buy just on an impulse - go and get some demos. You might be told that any one of the subs above would be "too good" for your current setup - ignore! You can always upgrade your other gear later on and there really is no such thing as *too* good a subwoofer, IMHO. :clown:
