Subwoofer recommendations

stewart kiritz -- Fri, 08/13/2010 - 23:08

 Guess what?  I just blew my Carver subwoofer while calibrating my dspeaker 8033 antimode equalizer.  Too much tweaking.  I was fine, and then calibrated a second time at a new location for the sub.  Now...no output from it.
So I am going to be looking for a new subwoofer, I guess.  Anyone have recommendations in the under $1000 range?  My speakers are Thiel 1.6.
Thanks in advance.

I have a Velodyne CHT-8Q. This is not their top series and may not be the best for your speakers. I dont use a sub at all in my main system. I am not a big sub fan but I can recommend this series for ease of set up and overall performance.

HI Stewart,
 
I have some particulary good experience with mostof the rel subwoofers, evedently stadium III wouled be best but blows your budget completely. T series is verry good 2. DIY subs from the likes of peerless can be verry good if you know what you'r doing. herse's how:

i've heard them in combination with b&w 801 series 1 and this sounded great.
 
if you can strech to 1000 dollars maybe you can buy 2 of these witch schouled help stereo sound improve a lot.
 
good luck
