No offense but the Altec Lansing VS4121s look like crap speakers. I am 90% sure that the M50W can hit harder that the Altec Lansing subwoofer.
OP: If you got the money, go for M50W and a Xonar DX/D1. No need for other kind of sound card, no Creative.
This. However, that is for companies who make "multimedia" speakers. When you start getting into the higher end of things, the frequency response is usually pretty close.
Now that I take a second look at the subwoofer in the M50W's, that looks exactly like the 6.5" driver that I have in my Quarterwave box.... Ahhhh, here it is.
If that is the case, then the F3(Where the sound really starts to drop off), is 38 Hz. In a normal ported box, the F3, would come out to about ~36 Hz. So I would say it would probably be audible in real use at a bit above 30 Hz.
So, not bad. But still, For that price I would expect a better sub.... :/
Now that I take a look at it again... it looks nothing like it.....
I just noticed that subwoofer is on sale for $38!!! >:O When I bought it I paid $61.... GG

Most prefabbed audio kits are a compromise between price and SQ......
If you DIY this stuff you would be WAY ahead in both price and SQ however...
This too^ My quarterwave subwoofer can probably hit as low and as deep as a $300+ subwoofer, but it will be tighter because of the smaller speaker size.Edited by kpopsaranghae - 4/10/11 at 3:29pm
