Hello. I am setting up my first home theater and have been reading this forum for a few weeks now. I need a sub and am not sure what I should be looking for. I've decided on the Klipsch Quintet IIIs, and the Yamaha RX V557 receiver. I don't would like to spend around 200 on the sub, is this reasonable? My room is 15 x 12.

thanks

You have a medium size room. A $200 sub is not going to cut it in any size room. Paradigm sub PDR-10 is about $400 anything less is a waste of money. A ten inch driver and a 200 watt amp should do.

Actually I opted for the IIs. I bought a HSU 10 inch sub and was going over budget. Have not set up the system yet as I am waiting on the receiver.

Just make sure you don't end up crawling to the ground laughin with joy after you hook it up and hear its sound. You will look silly. I know I did.
