i want sub of 8 inch for 450$, i confused between Klipsch and Harman Kardon...
For $450! That's expensive for one subwoofer! I would go with Klipsch over H/K with their high-end stuff. Polk Audio makes some excellent stand alone subs too.
Or you could try DLS -
DSL makes nice stuff..
I agree though while HK makes fairly nice recievers and dvd players, their speakers are not really all that great, leave that to JBL.
Klipsch is pretty nice, they sound a bit heavy though, DLS generally is very smooth and linear. Polk is a bit different all together, but I do enjoy the sound.
For best results you want 3 subs, all different, one at floor level, one about a foot off the floor and another one at ear level in different parts of the room. *Not sure if you ever plan on going that far, but that's the best way to have great sounding, low distortion, room filled bass.
Maybe abit over the price you said, but These are certainly worth looking at just for their cool factor
those are really sweet looking with that wood ... but for $45K a pair ill pass haha
... It's made with real wood though
EDIT: getting back to the topic though... I think These look pretty sweet for the price, and yes i did say these so it is a pair, although second hand and from ebay... but you know, surely worth another look?
Im not trying to change your mind or anything, as the Klipsch and Harman Kardon subs are very good. BUT... I've had experiences with both and, pound for pound or dollar for dollar, these ppl and their subs rock. http://www.svsound.com/
There customer service is next to none and the quality is top-notch.
Look @ this if you can swing a few extra bucks.
wow wish I had the amount to spend on subs! g/l m8
I just got one of these and if you got the amp to drive it it's well worth it and best bit a little more cash you could use 2
Did you just blow the sub I have an mtx in a creative amp and plug assembly cant turn it up to loud. cost 130 but as far as speakers go any 8 inch car sub will do.
Are you looking for SQ or SPL?
For SQ id go with Focal or Rainbow.
SPL id go with Incriminator Audio
If you have any questions about any brand I will be happy to assist you, i've been competing in car audio competitions for years.
it's a ten inch but the acoustech H100 is what I've got and it rocks the house. Extremely responsive. Buries klipsh lower models into the ground. Has a bit of trouble kicking on in auto mode if the volume is too soft but that's not much of a worry for me unless its 2 am and I don't want to wake the roommates up
wow thats going to be a nice sub no matter what with that money. would be my dream sub there haha.
For $450, just get an SVS and be done with it. Best subwoofers on the market!!!
This guy, do what this guy says. He knows what's up!!!!
SVS = PURE WIN
Nice subs but damn expensive.
I likE REL(uk made) subs myself
acoustech H100 look like Klipsch made and Polk Audio PSW505 12 look crazy! maybe i will go for HK 10 inch
eventually i go for Klipsch 11.5 inch for 330$ from friend
