    Default m&k sub.???

    A good friend has offered me a sub for a new ( to me ) HT system i an building its a M&K MX150THX at at very good price. Will be using a parasound hca2003 (front and cemter) rear amp to be found ( prob a hca 1200 or the like) 4 5jt+ speakers and a klipshe kv3 for center (for starts) will be adding a good processor say b&k 50/70 or simular.so how would that sub fit??? Is it a good one bad or what? Some feedback on this sub would be a big help. Thanks

    I did a little reading on that sub, and would probably pass on it.

    It looks like you're putting together your first HT. I've never owned this model of M&K sub, but most likely it's an older model (2000?) and more apt for a stereo set up, although it does have the thx endorsement. I would guess it's going for a price around $150 ??? If you're really wanting a sub for HT, get something newer and spend at least $400.00

    Unfortunately, the only M&K subs I've owned were some of their earlier models like the V2 ,V3. I'm sure M&K's later subs were much better. Mine sounded very nice for music and decent for HT. Realized like so many others here that I needed to throw more cash into the system to get quality bass for HT. Due to a large Cu.Ft. listening room, I ended up buying 2 new subs and retired the M&K's. With your quality of equipment soundfreak1 , you've got an excellent system going, hope you find some really nice subs to go with it.
