    what should I pair with these speakers as i got a cheap sub woofer but it sounded so bad it made stuff sound so bad. something similar sound quality to the speakers would be great.

    You don't need to match the brand. If you buy second hand could get a better one.

    What do you mean by cheap because to me cheap is bk xls400. And to others svs SB ultra 16 is cheap.

    If buying new, cheapest you should be considering for a decent subwoofer is the SW150. BK Gemini II is a step up, but a bit over £200.

    If you're looking to spend less than what a new SW150 costs, then best to look at used.

    The sw-150 gets good reviews and I'm sure you can get a used one for under £100

    I have several pairs of 9.1s and have 2xSW150. They are phenomenal for the cost.

    Shame you already have the 9.1's, as SuperFi has the 9.1's with the SW150 for £220. A real bargain package.

    They do have the SW150 by itself, but it's £180. Gone up since I saw it last for £150. Actually, I've seen that if you get it from SuperFi fulfilled by Amazon, it's £160.

    I don't think there is anywhere else that sell the 9.1's or SW150. I think SuperFi have exclusivity to keep selling these, just as Richer Sounds do with the 9.0's.

    Depends what you're looking to spend, if a fair bit less than £160, then best bet to is to wait for one to pop up on eBay.
