  • ED A2-300 or A3-250?

    I am planning to buy 5.1 system from ED. the price for A2-300 and A3-250 is the same. Which subwoofer should I choose?
    My room size is 19X12. I use it mainly for HT 90% and only 10 % for music.
    Any suggestions

    If you have the space for it, I'd go with the a2-300. The bigger box should let it dig a bit deeper with more authority. That's not to say the a3-250 can't do so--I've got one in my living room and feel like I could blow out the windows if I really cranked it. But the bigger box should typically win out. The slightly less powerful amp shouldn't really be a problem unless your room has 18' ceilings... My room is bigger than yours, with a vaulted ceiling running from 9' to ~14'. I usually only run it at about 30% gain with the sub level set at 0 on the receiver. You probably wouldn't ever need to use the extra power the a3 brings to the table compared to the a2.

    The only reason I picked the a3-250 when I bought mine was because I needed to fit it under my bed. I've sinced moved, and have a bigger bedroom, so I moved the eD to the living room and picked up an X-Sub for the bedroom. If the X-Sub was 2" shorter, I would have just bought it in the first place, actually.

    Also, the a2-300 is currently on sale for significantly less than the a3-250, unless I'm reading their website wrong...

    (edited for typo. Gah. Stupid numbers.)

      thanks for ur input.
      im trying to buy ed 5.1 package but im unable to add a2 300 to the package bcoz its on sale for 315$ where as im able to add a3-250 to the package and after 15% package discount it comes to 318$ which is same price as a2-300.
      I was just wondering if a3-250 is better than a2-300.

        Jamdoc, I never tried out the A3-250, so I cannot give you an opinion between the 2 subs. Since I only have experience with the A2-300, I would say go with it. Of course, I could be wrong ... :)

        As soon as I get word on when we will have product, I will definitely be posting it.

        We have all the components for WAF-1 and Scamp-10 picked out - and are getting OEM orders in ASAP. :thumbsup:
