I want to buy a subwoofer for my system and I need some help here. My budget is around $1000. My system is CJ MV50 power amp, Sonic Frontiers SFL1 signature tube preamp, Rotel RCD991E cd player and Tyler Tylo Reference Monitors.
My room is small and I use the speakers along the largest wall. My bass now is missing the lowest octave but is tight.
Any help will be great.
Hey Y'all,

"I just posted this response on a different thread and I thought it fit here as well so I just copied and pasted".

You might want to take a look at MJ Acoustic. For your needs I would recommend either the Reference 100 or the 150 Mk II. The sub I have is the Ref 150 Mk II. They have a small footprint, 12" x 12", have wonderful looking finishes at no extra cost and sound great. The best part of all is they hook up just like the Rel line of subs, meaning they use both a low and high level input that you can hook up simultaneously. They use a nutrik connector cable, also like the Rel line, for the high level input that hooks directly to your amp for seamless integration in a music system. It also packs incredible impact in HT for such a small box. I've only had mine in my system for less then a week but, so far, they sound great straight out of the box. Oh, I almost forgot all three of these subs also go down to 13 Hz. Yes, I said 13 Hz. I would not have believed it but I've heard it in my system. I have my HT/music system in a 15' x 18' room with my system set on the short wall with 8' ceilings but the back of the room is open to the rest of the house. Good luck with you search and keep us posted........John
i would suggest that what-ever sub you decide to purchase that you put a ASC-sub trap under it... it will make "any" sub sound the way it was meant to. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED... good luck...
Do yourself a favor and check out a KLIPSCH RSW-10, you won't be sorry you did. You can find them N.I.B. for under $1000.00
