Although the Sub10F doesn’t feature an integrated amp like the HPS 10HO, it does offer an improved frequency range of 29Hz-160kHz (versus 35Hz-150Hz) and superior crossover frequency of 40-160Hz from the SA1 Amplifier (versus 40Hz-180Hz). In addition, the Sub10F is an omnidirectional speaker in that it can be placed facing any direction. The Boston Acoustics Sub10F is priced at $500.00, a $50 increase from the $449.99 HPS 10Ho. Keep in mind though that the Sub10F must be purchased with the $600.00 SA1 external amplifier, making the total price $1100.00. The benefit to the Sub10F, however, is easy and convenient placement in nearly any location in your home.
