The Bottom Line Polk's baby subwoofer belts out tight home-theater bass and sounds sweet with music, too. The Klipsch Synergy Sub-12, the company's most affordable 12-inch subwoofer, sounds great on music and movies. The Energy Take Classic 5.1 is the best budget speaker system we've reviewed, earning our Editors' Choice Award with its outstanding sound quality and exquisite looks.
