    The ASW610 by B&W is cheap (~600 bucks) and will blow your face off with its lows and compact size. Rubberized paint is cool too.
    B&W CM series subs are great too, but now we're talking big bucks.
    Polks psw505 12" sub isnt all that bad too. lows could be cleaner though.
    Sunfire makes a mean sub too. not sure about price.

    Agreed, if you've got good amp power to the A9's you need a good strong sub to match. Two PSW505's kept up ok in my 17x34 basemetn, but left me wanting a bit, especially because turning them up louder killed sound quality, it just got louder.

    To their credit, they would put out some awesome bass, just not clean or musical...and often was too boomy for movies. A smaller room with smaller speakers or less amp power to the A9's they would work much better.

    Well i looked around and found a DSWpro660wi on sale. So I picked up one for now. But have the budget to get another if this does not cut it.

    I looked up just about every sub mentioned in this thread. It is pretty hard to tell the hype from the fact on researching them. I do not have the luxury of being able to audition subs where I live (hawaii), There are a few subs that really stood out for sure, and I really would have liked a chance to hear them. Shipping is a one way trip heres so I did the next best thing I could do, I went with a manufacture I know.

    The A9's dig pretty darn deep and work really well for my music tastes. The sub i have works pretty well as well and its old and out of date. So mostly getting the sub for HT, and will be happy if I can use it for music as well.

    Nice sub purchase...you'll be quite happy for sure. But don't sell yourself short on the benefits of what a sub brings to the table as far as your music enjoyment goes. Everyone seems to be fixated on a sub "digging deep" as it's only contribution. That couldn't be further from the truth. The "digging deep" part is only the tip of the iceberg as far as the benefits go. Play around and have fun.

    well most of the time i currently turn off the sub i have when playing music. It slightly muddies out some of the really nice lower tons my A9's have but does extend nicely. Which is one of the reasons for replacing it; i like the extended range. I am expecting the sub I choose to provide a bonus to the lower registers that is more complimentary. In any case a 12 inch sub should make for some real fun in HT compared to what I have. :)

    So now that I have a new sub coming I was thinking about my rears which will be the only speakers in my rig that are not timber matched. Do rears contribute that much to justify swaping them out. I was thinking about either getting a pair of F/XiA6 or RTiA1 or RTiA3. Any thoughts on those for rears?

    The FX or the A3 would do nicely. I'm in a new space and currently using my 2nd set of A9's as my rears, but only the mid/tweeter section. They blend quite nicely with my FXiA6 surrounds.

    DSWpro660wi, but i have to say there are few professional reviews to be found on it, and customer reviews are sorta mixed. Sound is fine from what i read. Most of the complaints were about the remote. I figure i can program my remote for the codes. I got a decent price, i think i will be just fine.

    I was trying to find a price point where i could justify buying two if i felt the need. This meet my target.
