Can we start a thread for folks who run a SET amp with a subwoofer or two?


I moved down a pathway that was an offshoot from the mainstream of this hobby-a single end triode 300b amp.  So what I got with a SET was more than I gave up.  But bass lacking can be tough to live with. A brought in a couple of subs that took CONSIDERABLE tuning experiments, measurements, and ultimately following my ear.  

Who has experimented or uses a subwoofer or sub bass condiment with a low powered SET amp?

@jbhiller,

Thanks for starting this thread. I have recently acquired 40W SET mono’s to mate with Canterbury’s. While they are quite adept in driving my 96db efficiency speakers, I do miss the sub at times. 

IMO, no tube amp or speaker can come close to pressurize a room with low bass the way a subwoofer is capable of. 

Would you mind listing your speaker/sub and amp setup? I will be looking into adding a REL sub in near future. I have past experience with B1’s and regret selling my pair. 
@jbhiller, 

You have a very nice system. Thanks for sharing!

And they are powered by? Amp specs please?
