Ask lj: just how important is 30 Watts in your subwoofer?
I'd like to get a sub woofer. I'd like to get one that fits under the couch. That restrics my choice of subwoofers significately. There is a low profile yamaha that seems to be ok (not great) and fit the bill, The question is it comes in 100 wattt and 130 watt flavors, which a corresponding price hike. So my question to people who have had experience with subwoofers. Will I notice those missing 30 watts? I'm happy to shell out the extra money (my main speakers in my sound system are ~13 years old at this point, so a little extra just isn't going to matter if I keep the woofer for as long) but only if I'd notice the differnce.
