Good sub to go with Dynaudio BM6As?

Does anyone have any recommendations? I make bass heavy beats (breakbeat, electro-funk, tech...) and am in the market for new monitors. I have some ns10s and am looking to finally replace my old Events. I am looking at the blue sky pro desk but know that the dynaudio BM6As have a great rep. It just seems that they could probably use a sub. I see that Dynaduio makes their own subs (Dynaudio BM 9S Subwoofer) and was wondering if anyone has used them. Is it a smart choice to go with this or are their cheaper alternaives that work well?

The BM9S works perfectly with the BM6As.

Take some time setting the crossover and sub level.

I ended up setting my to about 65hz.

The sub level i have set is pretty low, don't over do it.

Turn up the sub level just to the point where you start hearing it.

Use a reference track you KNOW. For me it was P-Funk's Flashlight.

Tweak from there.

Smart idea!

A fantastic sounding and amazing value monitoring system built from the ground up with a bespoke sub; very smooth, precise and well-balanced bass even in an untreated room.

The ProDesks make the BM6A's (which I do like BTW) look rather expensive, especially if you plan to factor in the cost of an additional sub!
