subwoofer choice help please


Standard Member
hi i am near the point of buying a subwoofer for my room, i have a pair of scandyna minipods and an onkyo mini cr545 it sounds great but i would like a little more bass. i want gloss white and have settled on these units.

wharfedale dx 1 at £165 inc delivery
q acoustics 2070s at ££169 inc delivery

then possibly
monitor audio vw8 at £245 inc delivery
bk gemini 11 at £250 inc delivery

anyone have any ideas for me i am leaning toward the wharfdale as i like the look but the Q is a bargain at the momment for the old S. not sure if the other 2 are goiung to be worth the extra ££ for what i need

Why does it have to be gloss white? That will really limit your choice as the majority of subs come in Black. Gloss white is a more modern finish.

why not see if BK will build you the sub, but with a raw cab, so you could paint it yourself. the sub may cost a little less that way and you would get the best of both worlds, a great priced commercial sub with your own finish. You can build your own sub for £500 or less, but the advantage over something from the like of BK is much reduced at that price level unless you go for something with a much larger cabinet.
