You should be able to pick up a Paradigm PDR 10 fairly cheap used on ebay, very good sub for the money.

My gf's laptop seems to have resurrected itself by magic. Despite that fact, I went ahead and just won a Polk Audio DSW 600 Subwoofer from Ebay. I got it for $330 plus $40 shipping, and for some reason they charged me $19.80 in sales tax. Since when do they charge sales tax??? It was direct from the Polk Audio store as a refurb with a 2 year warranty. Altogether I got a $680 subwoofer for $390. I hope it will be here next week.

It's bad enough I have to carry this 52 lb Polk down my stairs when I move. There's no way I would want to move a 125lb subwoofer!!!

Don't bother with Polk or Paradgim. Choose a specialist subwoofer comapny instead:

SVS - http://www.svsound.com/products-sub-box.cfm

HSU - http://www.hsuresearch.com/subwoofers.html

or Elemental Designs as mentioned earlier.

Check out the AVS Forums "Subwoofer" section for analysis ad nauseum on all of the above

I don't think I could have gotten a Velodyne or SVS for the price I got this Polk. I am satisfied with it. I did a little testing and as you would imagine, it's a little soft down to 20Hz, but 25Hz and above it does well enough for my needs. 30Hz and above is about as low as most music goes, and that's probably my main use for this.
