    Hi,
    I recently got my MS thx select Package, Every thing is fine about it but since I have been using earlier B&W 675 with my old package, I am not realy Happy with the subs that comes with MS package they seems to be slower and not tight, Can some one help me out which should I go for i.e quake, q150e or other similar subs. I want to use 2 small subs because my room is only 4.5mx4.5mx3m and using 2 will give better result.

    Above this thread is an advert for BK Electronics and their XlS200 would be ideal for the job. Similar in size and performance as the REL Q150 but considerably less money as BK are the manufacturers and they sell directly to the public.

    Check out the many threads and posts on this sub, the overriding majority of which have been positive.

    I agree with Ian on this, two BK XLS200 subs would be perfect considering your room size.

    Without stating the obvious, why not use the 675? If for whatever reason you cannot, the BK is a nice small sub so should be worth a look.

    Thanks Guys,
    I just checked the pictures of the rears and front of that sub and I have to say it looks wicked, I am a bit surprised that how come I don't know about this make, never heard about it, The reason for not using 675 is it is been sold, few weeks ago I decided to down size my system only speakers and sub, I was looking for genie and I got brand spanking new thx package at a price which will not buy genie. I am realy happy with my new speakers. Does any one know what other makes uses bk subs, it realy looks similar to Q150E.

    Guys,
    how about using 2 Quakes, right now one is on sale for 225£ and I believe I can save like 150£ by going on Quake route. But are these be as good as BK subs.

    BK Electronics are OEM manufacturers and actually make the subs for quite a few speaker companies who then badge them with their own name.

    The xls200 is comparable to the 909 in a smaller room but with a bigger space the 909 can breathe better and push more power out.
    You should also look at the Ruark Vita 100's. would cost you £400 + postage for 2 saving £600:eek:

    If you have only had the system for a liuttle bit the subs and speakers might still need some more running in to get the best out of them as I think they use ally cones and they need running in to loosen them up.

    I havent but I have heard the xls200 and read from Dan Glebles (sorry if I get your handle wrong) who works for bl elec that they are very similar in performance (vita 100 and xls200) so they should be very good. There are a few vita 100 owners on here. If you start a thread asking opinions you might get some owner feedback.
