Default choosing between the two.

alright guys, i went to best buy and saw this http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Yamaha+-...&skuId=9258625 and it looked decent and seemed to be what i was looking for. i mean its yamaha, and it seemed to be a good price. then i was looking onlin and saw this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16882120140 its the same price, and its onkyo, and i dont know which one would be better. any thoughts?

The Onkyo gives you the most bang for the buck...

Sure it is. It depends on which powered sub you get. Many powered subs will accept speaker level inputs.

If a powered sub was important to you why didn't you say that in your original post? Do you already have a powered sub you wish to use? If so, what is it? To get a good opinion all requirements are necessary.

i just cant seem to choose between these two htib. ive seen the yamaha one in the store and it seemed decent, and i liked the sub it had. ive heard that the onkyos are good though, but that comes with a passive sub. will i see a big difference between the two? and could you please give me a detailed explanation as to why you would choose the onkyo over the yamaha?
