Great, that's exactly the sort of answer I'm looking for. I hear good things about the BK and if they're anywhere near as good as people say then 3-400 is probably a bargain. Thanks, I didn't know about the new PR so will definitely look into it!
Thank you, appreciate the reply
The T0 is an extremely elegant looking REL sub. Which means that it is overpriced. The BK Gemini II like most BK subs is an attractive box. So on looks the REL wins hands down. On performance just about any BK sub will be better. If you are not a bass-head then for music in a moderately sized bedroom either will do the job. Personally I would have to be earning a lot more money to consider buying any REL sub when most of their competitors make subs at least at good for less money. But REL has a following because their subs are said to be musical. I doubt very much they are 100s of pounds more musical than a BK.
Is the Gemini II a good sub? I’m considering it over the REL T-zero, appreciate it is larger but is available in a similar price range on eBay. Mostly need for music and using in a moderate size bedroom. Thanks in advance!
It depends what you mean by cheap. The best "cheap" subs out there, and I mean the best by far are the BK P12-S300 series, made in Essex I think. These start at around 320 quid on eBay. That's why I put cheap in quotation marks. But here's the thing, these subs sound as good as subs twice their price. Read the reviews. Tight bass, sub 20Hz LFE with 300w amplifiers. The new PR range has a passive radiator just like Tannoy TS2.8 which increases the surface area for (apparently) even deeper bass. I would love someone to compare the original and the PR but if I was buying a sub now, I would be seriously looking at the PR. Unfortunately they start at around 400 quid. If you don't want to spend 300 quid then the TS2.8 is a great sub for the price. .......and yes I've been through a few cheaper setups ;)
