    Most people will recommend that you don't buy a cheap sub as they are worse than no sub at all but Richer Sounds do a range of Paradigm subs that start at £150 and forum members say that offer good value for money.

    Sound & Vision in Bolton are selling the Acoustic Energy AE1 set of two floorstanders, two bookshelf and a centre speaker for £299.

    Mission also do a home cinema speaker setup at a competitive price if you look around.

    Another alternative is to buy second hand and there are a few bargains to be had in the classified section of this forum. Buying second hand normally means that you can buy equipment of higher quality for your budget than buying new.

    I've just bought a REL 150. Apart from the humming and buzzing (which you dont hear in action films), its not that bad. I highly recomend it...
    Cheers
