Subwoofers: LTC SW100 vs Wharfedale SW150

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi

 

I have the £80 LTC SW100 subwoofer, and I am wondering if the £170 Wharfedale SW150 would be worth the upgrade for me.

 

The only music genre I will use it for is loud and bass-heavy club music. Most of the people who hear it won't be audiophiles so I don't  want to pay over the odds for amazing sound quality, I just want the most bass volume and tightness I can get, I'm looking for good value for money. Is this upgrade massive or too small to justify the price difference?

I'm now considering the BK XLS200 as well, of course this is a fair bit more expensive at £315.

If you have the cash I would definately go for the BK XLS200 just because it has a sealed enclosure instead of those bass reflex system, bass might not be as loud as the bass reflex but it would have alot more feelings and details.

The BK XLS200 is a really good performer. It can not challenge the big dogs when it comes to maximum output, but for its size, its capabilities are very respectable. Also the sound quality should be very high, assuming one keeps the output level reasonable. It is geared towards music use or small scale HT, and performs best in small rooms with good amount of low frequency room gain.

 

 

If you want that club thump, I would buy some bigger 10" or 12" bass reflex subwoofer.

The cerwin doesn't go that low, for around the same money the behringer b1800d http://www.google.co.uk/products/catalog?hl=en&q=behringer+b1800d&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_qf.,cf.osb&biw=1600&bih=805&wrapid=tlif133277652777510&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=shop&cid=12882489810023300707&sa=X&ei=U45wT5a5GOjE0QXH8_GMAg&ved=0CFQQ8wIwAA# , It can reach 126db @ 1metre if you need more you could buy 2 of them 2 would reach around 129db @ 1metre.
