I have two of the same sub as enaberif. Soundstage 10s = awsome quality and less expensive than polk subs. That would be my suggestion.

well here is what i would recommend but i am biased towards yamaha.

I personally love the yamaha recievers as they generally are great bang for the buck. Not to say that denon/hk/sony/onkyo are bad just i find yamaha's have the best bang for the bucks. However one downside to yammy's is that they are very tall.

As far as subs go. This is one area you shouldn't skimp on. Also make sure the rca cable your using can handle the sound.

For what it's worth here is what i have (and yes i need to upgrade the reciever i need more hdmi)

Yamaha HTR-6060B Reciever
JBL Fronts, centre and rears
Athena S-4100 Sub

Now i can't turn the sub up much past 4/10 or my neighbour complain :) i guess thats what i get for have 5 subs :)

That is the brand.. Soundstage .

I paid $300 iirc for mine but I got it as a floor model. It seems the model I have is no longer made so you may find a older model for cheaper.

Ah, this is their site I presume: Soundstage Audio

Looks pretty high-end but I guess $300 is reasonable.

SVS subs have one of the best bang for the bucks I've ever heard. Check them out at:

$299 for the 8 and $399 for the 10.

If the 8 is anywhere as good as the 10 it'll be plenty loud.

One really good budget subwoofer: Bic Acoustech H-100

Many available on ebay, some accept offers of $200.
