    So i'm debating some subwoofers and need some input on which would be best. They are both less than 150$ so keep in mind when making suggestions and comments. The sub would be use mainly for music listening.

    Dayton ES8 Elite(100 watt)
    • Adjustable crossover—40 to 140 Hz
    • High output, bass-reflex design
    • Flared port for low port chuffing
    • Solid 3/4" MDF cabinet construction
    • Front-firing 8" subwoofer
    [FONT=Verdana,Arial] Specifications: • 8" high-excursion woofer • 100 watt RMS amplifier • Frequency response: 30-180 Hz (-3 dB) • Dimensions: 18-1/2" H x 13" W x 17" D

    Energy ESW-8 (200 watt)

    • Single bass-reflex design subwoofer with front-firing port
    • 8" MMP Cone with patented Ribbed Elliptical Surround technology
    • Power output: 200 Watts
    • Frequency Response: 33Hz-150Hz +/- 3dB
    • Inputs: Line In/Sub In and Speaker Level In
    Or any suggestions? I'd like it to have RCA line outs so i can run the signal to my speakers via RCA cables. Thanks

    In a home theater setup you usually have your sub hooked up to the subwoofer output, and the rest of your speakers will have their own outputs. So I am curious why you need the RCA output from the sub?

    I'm guessing you would then have an external amp for the rest of your speakers or what?

    Edit: for your price range I would look into somthing like this Has your RCA inputs and outputs as well. a 12" woofer is going to perform a bit better for music than an 8" IMO depending on what you listen to.
