Pick a subwoofer!

Hi all!

I have Dynaudio BM15 (passive) monitors and I'm thinking of adding a subwoofer. I went to some local shops and found out two models that appeal to me: Hafler TRM12.1 and KRK V12 Series 2. Also offered are Dynaudio subs but they're quite more pricey so I give up on them, though I believe they are the best match (same manufacturer!).

What do you think should I pick?

I use Genelec 7070a. They´re really sweet sounding, give you a realistic picture for serious judgement and have more than enough headroom. Maybe the 7060A will do for you. Give ´em a try !

In my limited knowledge of subwoofers i would say that: Generally speaking Melodyne subs are a very good value. They sound great and are very affordable.

Genelecs are too expensive for me right now. Yes of course - 7070A kicks b*tt - but that's way above my budget!
Velodynes look cool on their website. I've never heard of them. But I'm unable to get one here in Croatia

I have a Hafler 10" sub and it's very nice. Doesn't play quite as deep as I'd like but still respectable.

Check out Bag End and M&K if you haven't already. The bigger Polk Audio subs actually sound very nice also.

The Velodyne's OK if you you won't be "leaning" heavily on your sub.

Cool the thing about subs

with subs 1/2 of the equation is how well they work with your moniters in your room! most were designed with specific hig cabs in mind! be very careful or you might find that you get lowend but major problems in the crossover region!
