    Hate to see unanswered posts!

    I'm really no expert, but I think it would be far better to get another Rel 100, which I think is a far better sub that the Quake is likely to be given it's so much larger. The Quake is even smaller than the Q150.

    I get the feeling that they may not integrate very well with each other.

    Hope this get's you started.

    Have you heard the Quake in action? The most obvious answer is to stick with the same make and model when running a pair of subs, but there are a few members who have tried different makes together. Until you get a demo with the new Rel it's an impossible question to answer, hence the lack of response.

    I currently have two KEF PSW1000s and setting them up was a fecking nightmare. At one stage I gave up and boxed one up to return to Richer Sounds, but I was determined to get it right:rolleyes: and finally got the clean tight base I was after.

    Now I've been struck down with upgradititus will be demoing a Rel quake & mja pro50 fairly soon. Anyone interested in a pair of Kefs???

    As the Q100E was soley made by BK Electronics and the New Quake Soley by Rel Who Knows?. Also the Quake is downward firing like the Rel ST range, and has gone away from the Q series norm of forward firing. If im not mistaken a bit like the MJA Pro 50.

    I think an audition is the best advise. Are you after the speed of the 8 Inch and the depth of the 12 inch.

    IMO - Give the Quake a miss. ITs small 8inch driver will not produce the levels that the Q100 does. Unless you want a quite sub.

    ------

    Try a couple of whoopy cushions. There about 8inches.:devil:
