I have a pair of ML Aeons in the living room at the moment. They belong to a friend of mine, so these will not be around in my rig forever. He and I have been thinking it might be nice to add a bit more bottom end. We are not looking for HT slam. We are interested in a musical and fast sub that will integrate well with the panels. The Aeons have 8 inch cones that supposedly go down to 40hz but I am skeptical. It will need to be self powered.
So far, the JL subs look interesting but neither of us have any experience with subs for a music only application. Budget is around $1k.
