Hi Guys,

I have an opportunity to pickup a Paradigm PS1000 sub used for $150. All I know is the specs of the sub. Anyone have experience? Is this a good price. I am hoping it'll do alright with my VP100 and M22's.

We're "plants" for the Department of Economic Recovery.

Do it! Really. Go see what you get @ B & M's for that.

It is a good deal.

Sorry, I truely have no business telling you to buy it really, because I have never heard one in person. However, I must say that there are very few subwoofers out there that you can buy brand new for $150, and Paradigm is a very respected company. So I'd personally assume it's constructed fairly well. It retails for around $500 new, so if it's in good shape then I'd say it's a good enough deal to try out.

Alright, well I will see if it can get it then. Not just solely on what you guys said, but it's positive reinforcement.

I will post back with my impressions.

I guess the first question would be what is it to be replacing? But really a Paradigm sub for $150 and you are asking questions? ;\)

I would use it in another room, if I end up getting a better/bigger sub later on and with the 10" driver I bet this sub will be great with music.

It's replacing a terrible Kenwood 10" 50RMS sub. That "pops" all the time.
