Hi everybody,


I have a pair of Penta´s in my living room.

I would like to add a subwoofer.

Is my only option the Beoab 2, or will a Beolab 11 add some extra punch to my setup?


My dealer is offering me a demo-used Beolab 11 for my Beogram 9500 and My Beogram 6500 with a MMC2.

Is this a good or bad offer?

I use Penta3s/ BL4000s with a Beolab 2 - wonderful with the TV (Avant CRT DVD) but not so good with music. So I use my other system in the room to play music - Beogram 4000, Beomaster 4401 and M100s.

Ok, so do I even really need a subwoofer when using 4 Beolab Pentas for surround music? Are they “full range” enough for a room that’s 15’x17’x10’? Geoff had previously mentioned subwoofers are not desirable for music listening, so maybe I should hold off on a purchase for now.
