Budget subs

i'm not a fanatic when it comes to sound quality. i do enjoy a good thump when it comes to movies, though, but i don't want to spend that much on a powered sub. i am not loyal to any particular brand, i have pioneer speakers, pioneer reciever and sony tv with a panasonic dvd changer. i had a jbl psw d110, but it bit the dust, so i was looking into the velodyne vx10 and the jbl e150p. my last sub lasted 6 years, and i enjoyed the feeling the rumble of the skulls falling in lotr, and the helicopter blades in black hawk down. so i don't mind getting another jbl. however, i also read that velodyne makes only subs, so they should be good at what they are doing, and maybe it's time for me to give someone else a try? anyone familiar with those 2 models and can vouch for them or of another brand that is similar to the under 200usd price? 150w, 10in powered is good enough for me.

thanks in advance

Someone here (Esdter?) had a JBL e150 and noticed a huge difference going to something else, SVS or Hsu.

Sorry, I'm not much help here. But don't buy the JBL just yet anyway!

See if you can swing a Hsu STF1 it would be worth the difference.

Im suprised Eddie hasnt been pushing the 10" Dayton sub as of yet in this thread. He subscribes to the 2:1(TV/Sub) ratio.

yeah, i've been perusing the sub forums and looked into the daytons. but it's only a 100w as opposed to the 2 that i listed as 150w. i mean, 50w does make a diff, right?

and this hsu and svs...is this the ecoustics forums or the svs/hsu forums? just kidding, everyone, i'm gonna check the pricing on it after i finish posting this.

thanks everyone

The Hsu STF1 is far less than the price you have stated. And trust me this ain't an SVS, Hsu forum as I just sent an SVS back to manufacturer a couple of weeks ago. As you said bud It was like parking the SUV(oh you said Daewoo) in the living room.
