Hi,

I have just bought an Arcam AVR400 and am really impressed with the sound out my Tannoy Eyris 2 floorstanders. However, my sub is now being shown up and it needs to go.......here is my list of criteria and all help would be greatly appreciated

Budget is < £500
I watch a lot of films but would prefer a sub which has a music bias if I need to make a choice
This has to be either white or black but the finish, if wood, should not have a grain


Thanks


Grant

I reckon this will need to be moved to the Sub Woofer thread however............

Having said that, BK XXLS 400 or Monolith is the way forward, take a read of all the threads on both, first class subs and excellent value for money

Having had both the monolith and the xxls400 i would say with your bias for music the xxls400 would be better.

I would second the xls400 or monolith. From what I have read on here the Monolith is very musical as well.

SVS SB12-NSD - slightly over budget at £549 but a worthy comparator to the BK - at least you can hear one too!

I use my monolith for music aswell as films and its more than up to the job musically, its tight and fast and integrates absolutely flawlessly with my main speakers.

I havent heard a 400 but im strugglin to see how it could be any better than the mono atleast based on my experience.
