    As above I am looking for a subwoofer to match the dynamics of b&w dm601 s2 pair I already have. It will be primarily for stereo audio, not home theatre. Ideally something fast and punchy..so I am thinking 10" driver, sealed enclosure and I do not want to break the bank. £200 or less.

    It will be run of a Cyrus 3 psxr combo.

    Thanks in advance for any advice.

    Room is 5x5m.

    £200 is not a lot for a decent sub to be honest. BK Electronics do some good value for money subs and your budget would get you the bottom of the range Gemini II.

    I used to run one of the first BK XLS200's with a set of DM601 s2 - the sub integrated pretty well for the price. This was about 5 years ago though so I imagine the newer, smaller, BK subs have improved further.

    A 2nd hand XLS200 could be the best value for £200

    Save a bit more and get the BK XLS200. Had one for 2 years now for music and HC. It will be worth it I can assure you.

    Hi mate, just out of interest do you recall what you set the corssover freq at? The response of the 601's run down to 70hz.
