I am planning to buy 4 cm8 S2 and The small Cm centre S2.
The only thing which i am not sure about is to go with one of the above subs..
I know there are probably better and cheaper solutions.. but becausse i am buying a B&W set i want a sub from the same brand.
I use it for 70 procent movies and 30 procent Music.
I think i prefer the Pv1D over the ASW10CM S2.. i love the design and i love the fact it has DSP and preset that you can choose from..movie..music..late at night etc.
what hifi rates this sub with 5 stars..  but i also read alot that it is better for music then movies.. except for the whats hifi review.. they say it is also great with movies.
As movies is the most important thing.. iy=t is a hard choice for me..
anyone experience with this subs..and maybe can help me to decide which is best for this CM set..
I have a small room 4 by 4 meters..
Thx in advance..

What Country are you in?
I've owned many B&W speakers but never a B&W sub as there are far better less expensive subs here in the US.
No need to have B&W sub with B&W speakers.
Here in the US you can buy a sub for 1/3 the price that is a better sub in every way than either of those.

BK Electronics ships their excellent UK made subs to Holland.
You might want to consider them as they are at least as good as the ASW10CM for a lot less.

The good news about B&W speakers is that all seven that I bought in the early 1990s are still in use every day and sound great.

See if you can get XTZ there. They have some very good subs. Subs that would do much better for HT than the B&W subs.
SVS has a distributor in Denmark.
