    all subs are "powered"... it's simply a matter of whether the amp/enclosure/sub are all one unit, or not.

    you powered the sub by adding an amp, a powered sub includes an amp, like an infiniti basslink

    Are you just being a hardass, or do you really not know what someone is referring to when they say "powered subwoofer"? Or, did you actually think the thread poster believes there is such thing as a subwoofer that doesn't require power to work?

    I'm curious if the thread starter wants a powered subwoofer for home or car.

    The former of course.

    I assumed car because he says stereo instead of home theater

    But he could want one for a stereo setup at home too. I mean Ronin, isnt your setup just stereo?

    sorry guys, I meant for home audio. I want to add a subwoofer to my 150 watt sharp stereo system. For home audio there is a passive or a powered subwoofer, my home stereo needs a "powered" one.

    my budget is under 100$, pharcyde183 why would you sell that sub for so cheap, and what does bad ground mean? It shakes the whole ground?

    He probably means there is hum whenever it is turned on. Often caused by ground loop problems.

    Nevermind guys, I just bought 3 subs off of ebay, and I'm going to see which one is best. But i'm thinking this[​IMG] onkyo (150 watts for 70$) will be best.

    That's the Onkyo sub that comes in the Onkyo HTB set that everyone raves about for the price. I'm sure it will work well for whatever setup you are doing
