You are looking for a subwoofer to hear what's going on with your audio mix on the low and super low frequencies, right? Any audio engineer who takes himself seriously needs to hear what he's doing in the mix with as much accuracy as possible.
To achieve a great monitoring experience you have to have a well-balanced room, expensive speakers with subwoofer and understanding of the Fletcher-Munson curves.
BSE pillow can help with the room and subwoofer issues. For the understanding of Fletcher-Munson curves visit this blog post.
How can BSE pillow be an alternative to the subwoofer?
Your ears hear the low frequencies bad compared to frequencies above 1kHz. That's why you have to turn up the volume quite a bit to feel the bass shaking your clothes, internal organs, floor, and other things. If you don't, you can't mix the low end with any precision.
When you sit on or lean on the BSE pillow, all low-frequency sound is pushed directly into your body without traveling through air. You feel the bass in your stomach. Your brain uses these vibrations and interprets them as sound. When you have standard stereo speakers on, or you wear headphones, your brain joins the sound information from all sources. The monitoring experience is full spectrum, rich with detail in the low end, plus you can listen to the mix at low volumes. That's very important for your long term career in audio as well.

Oh yeah, how much can you save? If a standard quality subwoofer is approximately 5-7 hundred, you can buy yourself another guitar. Buy the BSE pillow, now. You'll love it.
