If rumble and effect is what you are looking for then Polk too has an option in about the same range as the little Wharfedale SW 150.

6k for passive is reasonable ( actaully quite good for the finish i can see over the internet

but asking 20k for the outboard amp!
thats crazy.

someone should see if they can find a hald decent mono amp for the sub for another 6k and i thin it should be fair

I think car sub amps can be used in this situation - specially for home theater if distortion is there, and if it is a concern.

hmmm
yep a car sub amp
a mono can probably be bought in 5-6k
but ive never done this before

maybe someone more experienced can throw light if this is possible and feasible for even listening to stereo music.
Edit : i think one of our members has already done soemthing like this

I am sure the passive sub they are talking about is the bandpass design (passive) that comes with the Noa1 setup.
