    has anyone try running a car subwoofer with a home reciever? A car subwoofer is the cheapest route to get clean deep hitting bass.

    Yes. How do you figure that a car subwoofer would be better suited for clean deep hitting bass in a home? Many car driver's have a high FS, low Qts and low VAS in order for good small enclosure performance, that takes advantage of the large cabin gain in a car.

    A woofer like that wouldnt be best suited if you want a woofer that extends low without high electrical power input.

    i've heard two setups and it sounded good. it's only going to be used for music not movies.

    i had two crappy sony 10" subs that a friend gave to me (free) and I hooked em up to a spare avionixx amp I had in my room, and it made gamming much more enjoyable.
