Alternately, in my second system, I have 2 HSU's, which I still think are the best bang-for-buck subs out there, and if you call them, many times Dr. Hsu will deal with your problem directly over the phone. Note that Outlaw subs mentioned below are, in fact, rebranded HSU's.
Check out the HSU's, and try audiogon.com for good prices on used stuff.
I have been looking at the HSU website and as many articles I can find. If all is true that would be the way to go. HSU says it matches up well with Onkyo receivers because of the crossover network and I own an Onkyo TXSR 605. From what I gather Outlaw is a pricier clone of HSU. HSU's loudspeakers are horn loaded like JBL's higher end models,which I also own(JBL). All of this sounds like a good fit for what I already have in place and reasonably priced. I am a carpenter and substitute mailman, so I don't make a great deal of money. What do you guys think?
