Thinking about buying this sub. Right now I have a 7-year old Acoustic Research HTIB speaker/sub set I picked up on clearance for $200. The sub only works about half the time. I realize I should probably replace all my speakers but having a non-working sub half the time isn't cutting it, so it's my top priority.
It'll be used only for TV/movies/gaming, I very rarely listen to music in my home theater. It's paired with an Onkyo 606 receiver and the aforementioned speakers.
I've read through this entire thread and like what I've read about the PA-120. The biggest worries I have is the quality of the electronics. I mean the thing is *cheap* for a decent 12" sub, is the thing going to burn my house down!? Now that I'm starting to step up the quality of my components a bit, just wondering if I should step the budget up from $300 or so to $500 and try to get something nicer from a more established company like HSU, SVS, Velodyne, eD, or Klipsch.
Like I said, it'll be used solely for home theater use, not music. From everything I read, I should just throw the $229 at this sub and if it doesn't work for more than a year or two, I'm not really out that much.
