Technicaly a different model but the PSW110 has been floating around $70-80 lately. The 108 has a lightly better range.

That totally depends on the subwoofer. The only Klipsch I would want is the R-115SW, not because Polk subs are better, but because all cheap subs pretty much suck for real home theater applications, doing NOTHING in actual SUB or infrasound frequencies, i.e below 20HZ. That R-115 is a monster though, really big.

Or, keep your eye on Amazon. I got the SVS PC-2000 in Piano Black for $649, normally $849. Hsu subs are great, but I needed serious depth and air displacement for a large room but in a smallish dedicated spot. Couldn't have found a better option for my needs.

Unless it's a fairly high end AVR those 2 sub outs are actually 1 sub out with an internal splitter and the AVR won't be able to independently tune them

As to the 3 subs mentioned so far:

The $80 newegg one shouldn't even be called a sub- Frequency Response only goes down to 40Hz. It's crap.

The Polk from Best Buy is marginally better (35hz) but unless this is only for music it'll suck compared to any sort of real sub.

The Klipsch from BB is the best of the 3 (32hz) but still pretty crap, especially for that price unless you MUST have wireless


You'd be better off with one of these:

https://www.parts-express.com/day...r--300-629

Actually offers useful output into the mid-high 20hz range, has a longer and better warranty, and it's on sale until the 12th for $130 (and you can usually find a $5 off coupon to get it to $125)

It's a ton better performing than any of the other 3... if you're in a fairly large space two wouldn't be a bad idea and still wouldn't cost much more than the single inferior Klipsch unit.

Thank you both for the feedback. I'm sure anything will be an upgrade from my current sub, it's the sub from a Klipsch promedia 2.1 setup with an rca to 3.5mm adapter connected to the sub output. It works decent for the cost... $110, 15 years ago. The room is only 9x11 so, I don't need anything too large. But I do like to feel the movie. I'll probably go for the Dayton that was suggested.

Regarding the internal splitter and not being able to tune for it, how much does that impact the bass? Are we talking possible variations that would put the sound waves at odds with each other causing a muttled bass frequency or am I just looking at having an unbalanced(too much) bass output compared to the other speakers.

Well, the biggest concern would be trying to run 2 different model subs off of it (since the amp can't send different signals to them)- meaning 2 subs with different capabilities would be trying to play a signal that's not ideally tuned for either... (since your AVR can't understand there's 2 different subs it will hear whatever they produce together and think that's a single sub it's trying to tune...)

Room your size a single Dayton is plenty though (unless it's open to other rooms in which case their size counts too).

But if you ever do want to run 2 best thing would be 2 identical ones, placed equal distance from the main listening position- that'll be the best tune you'll get short of buying pro calibration equipment to deal with room size/shape/etc

That's what I thought. I would definitely pair then up if I was going to run two. Thank you again for the feedback.
