You might try searching the Audiogon threads for "subwoofer". There has already been alot of good discussion about subs in general and some about specific models. My budget was very limited ($500) and I wanted a decent sub primarily for music but also for movies. I went with the Hsu Research VTF-2. My setup is such that it is "wired" using the sub output from my A/V preamp. But, it can be connected using the speaker output from your preamp; your loudspeakers are then connected to output terminals on the sub. The cross-over will "remove" the selected frequency, and below, from the signal passed to your loudspeakers. As I wanted the benefit of Dolby Digital for movies I haven't experimented with this connection method. Rather than confuse you by trying to explain things I haven't really investigated in depth I'll just encourage you again to do some research and read the excellent posts already given in other threads.
