The lower your subwoofer can successfully go, the better.
Yeah... I asked my dad about the 120 and he wasn't too happy
So I was looking around, and I noticed that there is also a SUB-800. It is slightly more compact than the SUB-80. Which of the two do you recommend? I would also have to add a filled item if I purchase from parts express to get free shipping.
SUB80 = SUB800. It's just the newer model, so its more expensive. It's the same exact subwoofer.
I would seriously recommend grabbing the SUB120 since its only $99. You will NOT beat that price, especially a bang for buck sub like that. I paid $200 for mine back in the day, and I would be HAPPY to pay that much for it again. At $100 its an absolute STEAL. Looks like they're pushing the old model out to fit in the new model. Same subs though it looks like.
Your call though.
The SUB80 or SUB800 are the same thing, so grab the SUB80. They'll both disappoint with low frequencies, since they start to fade out at 40Hz. That's not low enough for a sub in my opinion.
