Hello All

Am looking out for a active subwoofer.
My budget is around 10k.

It's for home theater with yamaha AV receiver I do use it for music and movies.

Preferably bangalore based to avoid shipping hassles, and ease auditioning as well.

Do let me know.

BUYING, SELLING or TRADING indicates your automatic and mandatory acceptance of HiFiVISION.COM Trading Rules and Guidelines!

Do not blindly trust every seller or buyer! Protect yourself by following the below safe trading tips.

Safety Tips

For Buyers

  1. Always meet the seller at a safe location and inspect the item before purchasing. Following this one rule will help you avoid most scams.
  2. Watch out for unrealistic offers. If it appears too good to be true, it probably is. Unrealistic offers are used to motivate purchasers to make hasty decisions.
  3. Always verify the seller's credentials. Ask the seller to provide a photo ID and proof of address.
  4. Ensure that the product you are buying is not stolen or fake. Always ask for a purchase invoice.
  5. The best way to transact is to collect the item and pay at the same time. Never transfer funds or use a debit/credit/atm card to pay someone you do not know before collecting an item.
  6. Ask for clear information on condition of the item, price, payment and delivery method.
  7. Use only those payment methods that you trust and are familiar with. Never give out your financial information.
  8. It is recommended to purchase items directly from the seller.
  9. Always test the functioning of the item before purchase.
  10. Do your research on comparative prices for the product.

For Sellers

  1. Try to take the full payment at the time of the delivery. Remember to use a safe location to meet.
  2. Watch out for fake currency and money orders. Be aware that banks will not honour fake currency/money order and will hold you responsible for it.
  3. Verify the buyer’s credentials if necessary.
  4. Ensure that your product meets the features you list in your ad to avoid any misunderstanding with the buyer.
  5. It is your responsibility to prove that the product you are selling is genuine and not stolen by providing the necessary proof of purchase.
  6. Do not share your financial information except the one required for payment.

Dear Srikanta,
Firstly, welcome to HFV. :)

the bad news first.
Its indeed a tall order to get a reasonably good branded 8 or 10 inch subwoofer for less than 10K, unless you DIY or buy pre-owned.

Now, the good news

You live in Bangalore, which IMO, is the best city in India for an audio-video enthusiast/afficionado to live in or hail from. (Note that I decidedly refrained from using the term audiophile as I do believe I am not one)There is a wealth of DIY experience-based advice available from eager-to-help FMs available from your city.

In addition, I would like to say that Bangalore is also THE place to buy pre-owned AV stuff from. Just hang around this forum for a while longer, do some searches, read a lot, especially, the 'for sale by members' section and then you can commence a thread in the 'wanted' and/or 'DIY' section.

I also do recall a FM from here offering to build subs for fellow FMs at a reasonable cost. IIRC, it was FM Flash but don't take my word for it yet. Apologies to Flash if it wasn't him. My memory fails me at this point in time.

Whatever you do, be a little patient and for that amount, don't go in for new/branded subwoofer. At best and AFAIK, you can give the offerings from brands like DNM (Mumbai- Mr Dilip N Bajaj), Craftel (Chennai - Mr Mark Murugesan) and Telome (Mumbai). I do not know of any equivalent brands from Bangalore but I know for sure that Mr Arasu Kumar (Mob 09845131413) of Laya Acoustics
in Bangalore and Mr Vikram Joshi (Mob 09819197726) of Raaga Prosound in Mumbai do some great custom-built stuff. There is also another Gent, Mr Doshi or Desai, can't recall the name off-hand. My dear friend FM Denom here knows of him in detail. He has a website too, IIRC.

I once again, strongly recommend going in for DIY/custom-built or pre-owned.

Hope this helps
