Onkyo has been making these forever. I've got one upstairs hooked to an RC360 (Sweet Reciever!) and some Klipsch Energy 5 speakers. It really puts out some nice sound. We use it for movies mostly in a 15x16 living room that has hardwood floors. But when the wife isn't home I shake the place with old rock and it works great. It isn't a 12" 500W $225 BIC F12 or Polk PSW505. But for the living room it is more than enough. In my basement I have another RC360, 4 Polk Monitor 40's, and a Polk PSW505 subwoofer. But that room is carpeted 37 x 12 and needed a bit more power. When subwoofer shopping Onkyo, Polk (Not their PSW110 though), and BIC make some very good budget subwoofers. This might not impress a super audiophile like a $1000 HSU sub would, but it will impress friends that just like some good low end to movies and music. Don't buy Bose! For the money you can do WAAayyyy better!
