Just Picked up a pair of Powered JBL 15" cabs.
Was wondering if when later adding a sub, do I have to go with the JBL? Would another brand of powered sub be better?
[$300-$500 range, if possible, used is fine in case ya got one ;)] I'm open to all suggestions as we want stuff that can grow with us and be integrated into future setups.
would Imagine that all the powered subs work the same but might not get the best quality, any advice is appreciated.
I would think they all have a built in cross over, dual xlr in and outs, correct?
I'm not really sold on the idea of buying a lower quality sub than the matching JBL. I'm actually more interested in a better sub, if I could. I realize my budget is low, but I'll take a gander at something twice that price if I thought it would be a good long term investment
anyway if you're bored at work, and got two cents to spare lets have it. Links, dream rig of that size, kitten pictures with captions related to EDM, what you'd add to two jbl powered cabs, etc
Thanks in advance for your help!

Hey there. I'd recommend building your own sub. It's easy and very cost effective.
A mate and I did it with our sound system. Put together a 1000W sub for less than $500. Of course the amp and xover cost extra ;)

@skab, shile that is very interesting and I may want to do that one day I was really more interested in finding out info on using different brands of powered subs with my JBL EON 15's. I wasnt sure if the crossovers in most powered subs are the same, if they are adjustable or what. I'm sure some systems are designed to be used as a matching set. But something tells me I have more options than strictly buying an eon sub.
