Subs are easy to match. Not much of a big deal. Remember subs only handle low freq. your AVR will/should be able to mix the subs in no prob. I have denon with auto calibration. Im using a pair of the energy bookcase as my rears. I have klipsch 12d sub and polk RTI main which is overkill compare to these. Still deciding what to use as final pair for my rears.
Can someone reply, please: Can I add any sub (polk, Bic, etc) or should it be Energy (timbre matched)? TIA.
It doesn't have to be any branded sub, that doesn't matter.
You want a sub that can handle frequency up to 120hz and probably a little higher. This likely necessitates a smaller driver, something like the 8" driver that is usually paired with it. You could go higher (10", 12" probably too big) but you should go with a musical sub. Something fast that can handle those higher frequencies well. To match well with these speakers the focus should be on the higher end rather than on how low the sub can go. If you have a receiver with two sub outputs, you could have the musical upper level sub and the booming lower level sub.
The energy S10.3 would be one that I would recommend but unfortunately it seems to be discontinued...I've had good experiences with smaller jamo subs but like energy their lower end models are being discontinued.
how is the subwoofer on the 5.1 set of these compared to other subs?
I bought the 5.1 set on black friday for $300. In comparison to this deal, the sub is essentially $170. Could I get a different sub for much cheaper of similar performance?
I'm debating if I should return my set and get this one with a different sub so I can save a chunk of money.
