I've checked all the usual things such as wires etc and I cant find anything out of the ordinary... has anyone had a problem like this before, and can anyone suggest how i can fix it?
its a Gale sub 5 http://www.gale.co.uk/sub5.html
... not the best sub in the world, but suits my needs. Tunes just dont sound the same without it, and its too frustrating with the little bass 'parp' it keeps letting out
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated
Maybe its just time to buy a new one... can anyone recommend a home sub please? Nothing too fancy as its going in my office, I just need to get more bass!!! (and be able to hear my music when the club downstairs turns on!)
what subs do people have at home? how much do you reckon i need to be spending? Any recommendations would be marvellous :twothumbs:

a little bit out of my price range tbh, would ideally like to keep it under the £100 mark, its for my office, so not going to be powering any parties etc, it just to make playing with flyers more funconcept_ wrote:if money is but an object:
on radio haven't heard you say ya crashed it recently...whats going on? is it just the sub that makes you drive like a nutter?N-TYPE wrote:yo i melted the core on my sub in my car. Dubstep can fuck you up if your not carefull son, watch dat volume!
dunno specifically what sub to go for if you're just listening. personally i'd save some dollar and go for the krk sub like someone posted, or a mackie/tannoy/jbl/fostex sub...you get what you pay for and you'd be amazed at how good £250 worth of bass sounds compared to your argos £29.99 super-x-bass-boost-subwoofer-mk2
imo, the more you spend, the more you'll be pleased you spent...don't go cheapy cheapy if you can possibly help it. sell your cat, sell your sofa, sell your fridge etc.
on the technical side, make sure its active (meaning it doesn't require an external amp - the sub will power itself via an internal amp) and make sure it has good frequency response (down to 20hz means it will go as low as you will ever be able to hear.)
active isn't essential, but its much much easier, and one less thing to go wrong in your setup.
generally, bigger cone = deeper bass, stay away from 5 inchers, you want at least 8 but you should be aiming for 8", 10" for the serious bass reproduction you should be after.
wattage is worth taking into account. if a sub is £44.99 and it has ''500w RMS'' stay well away, it will sound rank. its better to spend £200 on a 150w sub than £100 on a 300w sub....quality of sound is more important than quantity!
if you're looking for hi-fi style subs, not mega-expensive makes i'd say are good (in no order) are:
i'm sayin pay attention to what make and specification you are paying for, don't go spending £80 on this piece of shit for example:

i've not heard it but you can tell by looking at it, it isn't going to kick out any bass...there are no specifications for it either...stay well away
personally, i'd go for something like this if i wanted a good sub on a budget:
you could go to www.richersounds.com or somewhere that specialises in hi-fi shit but i'd say spend about £150-£300 on something that is going to last, can handle it loud, and will reproduce the bass accurately.
one last thing, its possible to turn a loud speaker down, but you can't turn a quiet speaker up. buy more than you need, no need to blast it 100% all the time
wow i wrote quite a bit there.

Though if you shop around, I'm sure you can get a better price. My mate picked one up from ebay for about 40 quid. Was some dodgy as fcuk geezer selling it though in thornton heath with no wires, box etc. ha but it works fine and is perfect if its just for stereo use in a bedroom/office. Though if you are really concerned with audio fidelity (say you are using it for production purposes eg), it is worth shelling out.
