    how much is your budget?

    I have a paradigm PDR10 from richer sounds (cost about £150 I think). Good for the money IMO.

    Several people here will actually recommend no sub is better than a cheap one, but if you have a cheap system and just want a bit more kick, then I see no problem with a cheap sub.

    I've got a REL Quake (cost around £290) which suits me perfectly as positioning was a bit of a problem. If space is tight this is the answer as it's *very* small. Sounds excellent in a smallish room (mines about 14ft x 13 ft).
