    Default Sub Help 350-450 dollar range

    I am thinking SVS, Polk, Paradigm, or Velodyne.



    Any help would be great.

    For what it's worth, I really like my HSU VTF-2 - the STF-2 would be in that range new.

    yeah, I can vouch on the stf-2 from experience as well. not the deepest digging sub on the planet, it it gets the job done well for moveis and music very well.

    also, I heard great things about the SVS pb-10 (a little higher than your range, but probably worth it.

    do some research on DIY subs if your a handy type of guy with decent woodworking skills, DIY dont right can really stretch the buck out.

    I highly recommend looking for a used Martin Logan Dynamo, which can be had for under $450. I used to own this very accurate and surprisingly powerful sub. It can also be converted to either front-firing or down-firing.

    Just my $.02

    Yes. But it depends. For the $$$ Hsu or SVS have the most oomph IMO.
