    What subwoofer would you guys recommend for me?
    Here is my set up :-
    Pioneer 912
    mission m73i fronts
    mission m7c2 centre
    mission m7ds sides
    mission m70i rears

    My room is an odd shape sorta an L shape whiich is bout 12 feet long and 12 feet wide at the L end and 10 for the rest!

    I would prefer the sub to be beach but is not essential also the top of my budget is probably the mj acoustics pro 50!! So about £400

    Hope ya guys have some suggestions thx

    Low price Mission M3as Probably mostly for visual match
    Mission M5AS same reason, better sub, but have you got room?
    Or Rel Quake / MJ acoustics Pro50 (Been reccomended alot but i've never heard the MJ acoustics)

    I bought the M J Acoustics Reference 100 in beech for £400; one of the reasons being that it was available in a finish to match the Monitor Audio Radius speakers I also bought - and if you get it from Sevenoaks they'll thrown in £60 towards cabling. This offer may have ended by Monday, though!

    Dear BBCuk2day,

    You can give the Yamaha YST-SW1500 a look also. It has remote control, auto on/off, LFE, line in, speaker in and out, line out, music/movie select, variable high cut, volume, phase select, protection circuit for not overdrive it, servo controlled and 1000W max output. It should be within your budget.

    Check it out at www.yamaha.com.

    Regards,
    Will.

    Most of the above is meaningless specspeak. Is this a recommendation from your own experience ?

    Dear Ian,

    Yes, I have a piece of the Yamaha YST-SW1500.

    We are asked to give opinions bout the alternate choices within certain budget so I am just put forward my view to give the readers more knowledge about what's going out there.

    I think you won't deny it, right?

    Regards,
    Will.

    My velodyne cht-10 was a good match for my old set up which was similar to yours (except I only had M71's) and I hold it in so much regard that I have not felt the need to replace it since upgrading everything else. Best £325 I've ever spent. They tend to pop up in the classifieds quite often too so keep your eye out as they tend to get snapped up pretty quickly:)

    Similar setup myself.
    mission m735i fronts
    mission m73C centre
    mission m7ds rears

    I was thinking about the M5as which i think can be picked up for £425 with free delivery & £50 of QED sub interconnect cable.

    My room is 20ft by 12ft.

    Open to hear feedback.

    I went to the Bristol show last weekend and had a brief listen to the MJ Acoustics offerings but wasn't impressed. I don't know whether it was the room acoustics or just the ten minutes that I was there as there stuff has sounded good in the past.

    I did however hear an excellent subwoofer in the Mordaunt-Short room which retailed about the £500 mark. It was truly excellent for the price and finished in a nice wood veneeer but it was a fairly large box and not as compact as the MJA offerings.

    No doubt forum member Tons of Fun will be able to give you model numbers etc but it was great value for money and I would happily have one in my own system.

    Hi 69
    I owned the m5as for a weekend and found it needs plenty of space around it to work at its best it also isnt good on port noise which you do get to hear quite often.If spending around 500 notes there are more refined subs to choose from also think about second hand on these forums were you do get the odd bargain quality sub.
    Cheers Gonzo.

    Very helpful from Mission!!! ( NOT REALLY)
    Ther are three subs that you could take a look at and these are the
    ms10
    M3as
    m5as
    All three of these would suit your system.

    Regards
    Nicki



    To: sales@mission.co.uk
    Subject: subwoofer guidance


    Please would you give some guidance of a suitable Subwoofer that would be well matched to my existing mission speaker system.

    Current system is used for Music cd based and also as part of a home cinema.

    mission m735i fronts
    mission m73C centre
    mission m7ds rears


    Current system is powered by 100watt rms per channel max receiver or 100 watt rms amplifier for music purposes. Current amplification is higher than volume listened too due to allowing for minimum distortion.


    I was thinking about the M5as however I am not sure if this would be well matched or possibly too big when looking at room dimensions. My room is 20ft by 12ft.

    Many Thanks

    If you are lucky enough, I would have to suggesta sero 15. They do come up for sale sometimes, but you would have to be quick to snap one up.

    Its a steal at the price, mega low bass that you can feel.

    £400 ? Hmm, If you could put £25-£50 more to that then I'd definately go for the REL Q150e MKII

    Well received my M3AS today - Thumbs up to Discount Electrical arrived next day as promised and all I can say is GREAT SERVICE.

    Playing around with setup at the moment to fine tune to the rest of setup but initial thoughts are this is great for my size room and compliments the other speakers in my set up very well.

    More than enough low down bass to shake the room if wanted.

    Looking forward to getting into some action films tonight.
