My and old an trusty(ish) KEF PSW 2500 isn't working properly it has no sound or an extremely loud rumble when turning it on.

So I would like to get a replacement for it but I don't want to spend much as I plan to get a complete new speaker package next year. What would be the cheapest decent sub I could get that would be a good replacement?

Thanks :)

Depends what you looking for. If movies use mostly and want some rumble with decent impact then KLH Windsor 12" could be great. I would see this as upgrade from Kef for low cost from forum advertiser:

If looking something small and more polite perhaps similar sealed box as your Kef then BK Gemini II.

Thanks and I should have said, it is used pretty much for movies.

Would the KLH Windsor 10 be OK?

I don't know much about Subs but that seems to have similar power to the KEF?

Also looking at the size of the Windsor 12 it is a bit too big, ideally wanted something similar size to my KEF so maybe the Gemini II would be my best bet if it is OK for movies?

Thanks :)

Sure the 10" model would be fine too, i just thought the price difference being so small that the 12" would be a no brainer but if you can`t fit it then 10". It gives bit different feel to sealed sub. Highly likely that you would prefer the ported sub especially if you watch lot of action/scifi stuff. Often more fun experience at least compared to BK Gemini II which i have owned. Please measure the space again, here are the dimensions:

10" dimensions: 15.5″ H x 12.8″ W x 15.4″ D

12" dimensions: 17.8″ H x 15.4″ W x 18.1″ D
