    I have 5 x Anthony Gallo Micros powered by a Yamaha RXV450. I'm looking for a sub that will fit in nicely ...

    I have heard the Gallo subs aren't that good (but look very nice !)

    Although the new one is meant to be much better ... any suggestions please ?

    Empirix, have you bought the Micros already?

    If not, then remember that buying the Gallo package effectively means you get the TR2 subwoofer for half-price at £300. This is a bargain.

    I too had ruled out the Gallo subs, but I'm glad I demo-ed because the TR2 is a superb subwoofer and one of the best I have ever heard (better than the small subs from M&K, Velodyne and REL for instance). It integrates with the Micros like a dream and slams out deep, tight, musical bass like I didn't expect. It's relatively easy to generate deep bass to make movies sound good - its an altogether different art to cope with music where everything must be well integrated and fast.

    I think the myth that the Gallo subs are poor may have more to do with people ignoring music (you will be listening to music as well as movies I presume?), boosting their own profit and because of a couple of bad reports of the old Gallo sub (although at the very same time, there were also published reviews which said the complete opposite...).

    All I can recommend is get a demo rather than choosing on hearsay. You may not be that bowled over by the looks or sound of the Gallo Micros/Sub anyway (lets put it this way - the Gallos don't look bad, but they don't look like the photoshoots either!).
