    I have been meaning to upgrade my sub for a long time now. I only had a lowly £150 Pioneer before. Well unlike the Rel 200 I tried a while back the B&W integrates perfectly with the sound stage. I only have a small room so I was worried that a 700W sub might be way to powerful but I'm happy to say that with the volume on the sub set quite low in manages perfect impact without shaking the house down. Most importantly I am never aware of the sub (truely directionless), it just sits there doing it's job. The overall improvement in sound is huge.

    PS Many thanks to Gordon and Retro

    Jeff,

    A matter of interest what are you integrating the ASW2500 into?

    Does it go as low as claimed, 23Hz +/- 3db?

    I've only got a small room also, 16 x 9, and much as I'd like a Paradigm Servo 15 the room (and the wife:( ) wont take it, my current sub, a M&K V7 Mark 2 I think is a little weedy so looking for a quality sub that does not take up too much real estate.

    I've looked at everything and the beauty of the B&W is its size and also its controled power, incidentally what did you think of the Rel?

    Steve
