Hi. I'm looking for an active subwoofer to partner my Q90's. I'm currently using a Wharfedale Powercube PC8 which does add a little volume to the low frequency but only has the same low frequency response that the speakers themselves have ie. 40 Hz. I was hoping to get closer to 20 Hz if I could. Can anyone recommend a Kube that would work well with the Q 90's - perhaps one designed for a Kef home theatre setup?

You could try a KUBE 100 or a KUBE200. If your subwoofer has more volume displacement than your Q90s, then the KUBE should be boosting the sub not the Q90s, but this may not be possible if there is a high pass filter in the sub. In which case you couldd try boostiing the Q90s and ditching the sub.

If you are electronics savvy then I could give you the schematic of an active circuit that extends the bass from 40 to 20Hz before the power amp.
