    Hi,

    I have recently entered the world of Home cinema and have the following equipment

    DVD: Currently PlayStation2, soon to be Pioneer DV-350
    Amp: Pioneer VSX-859RDS
    Spk: Eltax Jupiter

    I am very impressed with the setup so far (considering it cost less than £400 all in), but would like to add a sub for that extra punch.

    What would be a good new or second hand buy for £200 or less?

    Or is it worth saving for something like the Rel Quake at £350 ish.

    Thanks,
    Paul James

    Very little new at £200 or less is any good. Some of the Paradigm subs available at Richer Sounds are OK.

    £200 can get you a decent second hand REL sub but you have to be fairly quick off the mark.

    What about the REL Quake. Is that any good?

    Apparently those who have heard it say it is REL's worst sub for years. :(

    If space isn't too much of an issue then £200 will almost get you a secondhand Q100E which would be much better than the Quake, I am quite sure. Having not heard the latter I couldn't say so definitively.

    Plus... if you are looking at the Quake there's the MJ Acoustics Pro 50 and the Velodyne CHT 10 powerbuy (£325) to consider also. :)

    MuFu.

    What about the Mordaunt Short 907W Subwoofer - Cherry?

    It is £220 from hifibitz.
