    Default Sub selection for music: PSW125 vs Klipsch SW350

    Shopping for a sub for my brother, we can get a good deal on either the Polk PSW125 or the Klipsch SW350, at about the same price.

    I've heard the klipsch at Best Buy, and the thing is a beast for being an 8". However when you really crank it up w bass heavy music, it flutters a quite a bit. I've never heard the PSW125 at all..

    I know a sealed sub is generally regarded as being better for music, and with the way my bro cranks his system up, wish there were a nice sealed for the price we are getting these at... that however isnt gonna happen..

    So just looking for opinions. He'll be doing 90% music, maybe 10% movies. Broad range of genres, lotta rap, lotta metal.

    Thanks for any input.

    Some of those Elemental Design subs are good bass for the money. If you want to stay with Polk and not spend too much....buy a PSW505 (older model) on sale lots of place for 250 (like newegg.com). I'd say that it's at least 'better' than the PSW125 or the Klipsch. Not a great sub, but definitely 'good enough' for your purposes. In any case the Polk PSW125 is better than the 8" Klipsch!
