I'm looking for the best powered subwoofer out there. Please help me out. All the reviews I see are old AND I don't want to waste the money. What's the best on the market guys?

It really depends on a lot of factors. A bit like asking what’s the best vehicle.

For me, the best sub is light and portable first, then deep and loud second. For many people its the other way around. All the major brands make excellent but slightly different subs. In the US I’d go EV or Yamaha or the better JBL’s and Mackies. In Europe I’d say RCF, DB or HK.

Subwoofers by SVS. They're getting rave reviews.
I'm assuming this is for home stereo, home theater. home studio?

The very best? Check out recommended components listings by "Stereophile
