Check out the HSU's, and try audiogon.com for good prices on used stuff.
I too have heard that HSU and Outlaw are good bargains. Though I've not heard the JBL model mentioned, I've never been impressed with (more horrified with) JBL's performance with subs. Def Tech, M&K, REL (if you can afford it), are all good names (JL Audio seems to be making good inroads into the home audio arena).

The Paradign Servo 15v2 might be the best Sub Woofer ever made.

waldo100,

Welcome to the forum!

I too have a Paradigm Servo 15v2, great sub but it is way out of his price range. That thing really moves some air!

That's what I am talking about. Thanks, but my major setback is where I live there are not any HI-FI stores. We have Circuit City and Best Buy, so I will not be able to test drive any equipment. I will have to take your word for it as far as what to buy.

I have had JBL speakers in my sound systems since 1974 and have always liked them. I like the studio series and the pro line of there speakers. I do agree that some are mediocre at best(venue,stadium and balboa to name a few off the top of my head) I still use the first 2 JBL's I bought 33 years ago. As far as subwoofer's go, I have never owned one and I am lost. It would mostly be used for NFL,NHL,Movies,blues and 60's and 70's Rock. Does Def Tech mean Definitive Technology?

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?
