    Do you have a sub woofer on your home audio or PC setup?

    I got a decent Sony one last year and it's been pretty solid. I belieev it's an 16 inch but I'd have to check. It sound pretty awesome when I turn it up and it doesn't vibrate like some of the cheaper brands to.

    I got for around $150 at the time.

    Yes I have one for my home surround sound system in the living room as well as one for my office. I think they enhance the sound and make you feel part of the action.

    Both of mine are Sony's.

    I agree. I didn't have one for the longest time because I thought music and movies sounded just fine but once I added the sub-woofer to the mix I realized just how wrong I was.

    I don't even turn it up that loud. I've found that it sounds the best right around 1/3rd so it doesn't drown out the higher sounds. Not to mention I like to optimize the sub to not vibrate furniture when I have the volume at my usual preferred level.

    I have 2 computers in my room, one of them has these old speakers from 1995 which I can't believe still work. The other computer however has some pretty nice Boston Acoustics, it's a 2.1 channel setup and I think that the sub is a rather nice feature.

    fixed

    it's a Yamaha not a Sony ;)

    10" 300 watt Yamaha for my home surround. I almost never have it on anymore. It drives the woman crazy. How I don't know. :lol:

    But when a great movie comes on, I turn it up. :lol:

    I have a 3-piece system from Creative.

    After I heard the difference, I couldn't live without the subwoofer.

    pro2A Hell, It's about time!

    Yup. I'm not sure of the configs... I know its a Logitech system I picked up at Wal-Mart. It can thump the ground a bit. Coupled with my 5 piece surround sound speakers... my computer is my ultimate jukebox.

    Cait Oh, poppycock.

    Since this topic is about sub woofers, can I ask what one is?
