Pretty funny that I posted pretty much this same exact thing earlier today!

I like HSU, Elemental Designs, and Aperion subs. I know that ED is known for its subs, so if you're not piecing together a whole system, that might be the place to start. My roommate is an ED fanboy (refuses to like anything else) so I've heard their stuff before. I think it tends to try to be "loud" and "manly" instead of necessarily accurate, but that's just me. Like I said, he loves it.

I have the Aperion Bravus 8D right now, which is 2 8" drivers and is rated at 200 watts. It cost me $400, but was well worth it. It's in a 24x17 room, and trust me, it's plenty of sub. I have it at 40% power right now, and at that level it can rattle a drink off the end table at the right volume. It's also extremely clean and tight. The new Apeiron is the Bravus II 8D, which gives you a 3rd 8 inch, down-firing woofer in addition to the 2 side-firing woofers that I have. It also bumps power to 300 watts. It's $500.

A couple quick notes about Aperion - you get a 3 year warranty on the amp and a 10 year warranty on the sub, and if you don't like it you can return it in 30 days, with them paying for shipping both ways. Also, I've never seen better cabinetry in a speaker or sub. I got the cherry finish and it's stunning, but it also comes in black. Just do a search on them, and every review will mention how well-built and beautiful these speakers are. I love mine, but I know there plenty other excellent speaker and subwoofer companies!

LOL I have no doubt that subwoofer destroys everything in it's path. It damn well should for $1800! They only make 1 sub in his price range, and it's 125 watt single 8 inch. Probably adequate, but I doubt he will like it.

Hell of a sub you have though. Geeze. Do you have that thing in an ampitheater?

If you're looking for something unique or custom to fit the bill I can certainly help you out. I operate StereoClarity.com and do custom designs.

You really need to define a few things first though. Were you satisfied with your old sub before it blew up; was it adequate? Second, will this be mainly for music or home theater?

I really enjoy doing custom subwoofer designs because it's an area where you can get really creative. Build it into an end table for a couch or go stealth with it behind or under something.

Here are a few that I've built over the years just for fun

A 13Ov2 subwoofer in a ported box on 550watts.



Take a look in the corner....yep, that's a cylindrical subwoofer. Single 12 ported with a 500watt amp.


For a little more elegant sound, a single 12" woofer in a sealed enclosure with solid copper speaker leads and a window.

I mean if you could do a 12 inch with a simple but nice setting that would be nice for $300-$400 that would be awesome, maybe if u showed me a sketch of something, or osme other subs that u have built that would be like I asked.......

Why don't you have it repaired, unless you just are looking to buy something else.

You beat me to post, someone can fix it. On another note, I'm rocking a new J&M Labs/Focal system tied to a Harman Kardon amp that I'm very pleased with.

I see your in Brentwood, right outside of Nashville right? I know a guy in Huntsville Alabama that does stuff like this, so, there has GOT to be a place in Music City. My guy runs a custom install home theatre business, so start looking there, or just a electronics repair place, it's there somewhere.

Sure man, for $400 we could build a sub that would kick your old one in the face. A single ported 10" on a 300watt plate amp would do very well for home theater as long as it's in the right box.
