A used REL.

Note that the REL uses a slightly different technology than most other subs with their recommended "high level" input that takes a very high impedence signal from the speaker lugs of the amp itself (a tiny, irrelevant load is seen by the amp). This works by "summing" both channels for the low end and preserves the overall tone of the main speakers and amp by not having to mess with them by filtering the signal in any way. An added plus is you can use one long wire run to the sub with less loss than a pair of single ended cables run from the preamp, allowing more flexibility in placing the sub where it sounds best to you (and in my case away from the TT and rack). I use an older REL Q150E bought for a fraction of its original cost and it works very well...sort of amazing actually.
