    sorry I can't help any further mate :(

    Only thing I can say is this:

    XLS200-DFandFF

    Probably the best sub i've heard for under the £350 mark :thumbsup:

    the XLS200 seems to get a lot of good comments on here so it it has to be.

    Thanks for your comments

    :thumbsup:

    Thanks Chris

    It was Bristol that informed me that they can no longer get hold of the SW250.

    They had some of the other colours but unfortunately I needed black or a light oak which thay dont make.

    Maybe I should have tried some "paint and grain"

    Opted for a BK sub instead

    Like I said, the only stocks you'll find will be those HELD BY STORES. Wharfedale have none, and haven't done since my earlier post. Any retailers with those still left must be extremely quiet ones!

    I would love to hear how you get on with the XLS200. I've got a similar budget to you to upgrade my SW150 which is dying.

    I was thinking about the XLS200, although i saw some comment eariler from a guy who said he could hardly tell it was on during films.

    I just spoke to Jim at avbristol and he has told me that they stock the SW250 / SW300 & SW380 and CAN order more from Wharfedale as they have taken these as an 'UK Exculusive Deal' so if you want any they are there :D

    You shouldn't be able to hear a sub working - It should integrate with the speakers so big sounds just sound big. If you can distinguish it's presence from the rest of the system, it's set up badly or a fartbox contributing a lot of distorted waffle.

    Good subs don't do this, so there is an initial period of getting used to the lack of quacks and farts you may have been suffering from from crap subs or typical speaker bass over the years. That tends to lead users to intially think something is missing which it is - distortion.
