    Default Musical Subwoofer for CBM-170s

    Hi all,

    I have the original CBM-170s and just purchased a new Denon AVR-X2400H receiver. That - and Tidal have renewed my interest in listening to HiFi stereo music. However, my subwoofer is a pretty inexpensive Polk (PSW10?). I am wondering how much better music will sound with a more expensive musical subwoofer? (I really don't want to break the bank, so my budget is less than $500 though) Would it be worth it? If yes, what subwoofer would go well with my CBM-170s for HiFi music?

    A bit over your budget, but I would suggest the Rythmik L12.

    If you need to step down, then have a look at the Hsu VTF-1.

    +1 for the L12. I have one paired with a couple of CMT-340 as mains (think of them as CBM-170 on steroids ). It is a heavenly match for music and more than satisfactory with movies.
