Default What sub for Klipsch quintets

Just purchased a set of Klipsch quinters series III unopened from a guy that used to work at best buy. Looking for suggestions on a subwoofer to add to these. Looking to spend $200 or less. Will wait to find good deal on ebay or craigslist if I need to.

at 200 or less you are probably looking at a 100-200 watt polk or infinity sub. Look at craigslist and get a used one for 200 that'll put out 300-400.

Save your pennies and look here. A friend of mine went all quintet, then I sold him a Klipsch Sub-12 last year (cost me $600 at retail and way overpriced). I replaced it with a VTF2 MK4 12" from Hsu and that is a much better sub. After I upgraded to a 15", he bought the VTF2 from me, and we set it up last night. Blows the Sub-12 away in his home, as it did mine.

Moral of the story, save your pennies, and buy a sub for a good deal from an internet direct company like Hsu, and you will be much happier. With the quintets, you will really want to cross them at 90/100hz in a receiver, so you want a good sub.
