Replacement Subwoofer - Assistance Requested
English

Hi, the subwoofer with my Boston Acoustics Soundware XS 5.1 set-up seems to have developed a serious fault (not uncommon I gather). Buying a completely new speaker system is, of course, an option, however I'd like to consider just replacing the sub-woofer in the first instance. Any recommendations gratefully received ! (for info, my room measures 6m by 6m, and my surround amp is a Sony DA1200ES). Thanks.

Your room is quite big which is great. I would look at Rel. Not just cause I have one but they are amongst, if not the best in the world. 

Hi-Fi: Campridge audio D500 SE, DACMagic 1, C500, P500.. Monitor Audio BR1 speakers.

H-T: Pioneer; Kuro LX5090, BDP LX71, SC LX73. CA P500. SKY+HD. Rel Q50. Mordaunt Short Avant.

An SVS SB1000 would be a very good starting point . To my mind one of the first subs that really performs.

Thanks all. Budget will be what it needs to be, but replacement sub needs to be compatible with the Boston XS satellites. I can't see spending more than £300-400 is justified. Beyond that, the only sensible option is a complete new speaker system.

Look at BK subs. They outperform competition for the price.

XXL 400 should do it I would have thought
