So which Rythmik do I need? I am looking for accuracy and a visceral home theatre experience. Not looking for a boomy rap experience; the room is about 18 x 24, open to the dining room on one side along with the staircase upstairs.
I've decided it's definitely one of the 15" subs; hoping I don't have to spend the $1500 on the top end dual sealed, but if that's what I've gotta do... I will also be listening to music (AC/DC and the like).
Please offer suggestions!

for the room, you don't have a 18x24 space. I have a similar layout and found two FV15hp work pretty good to pressurize my 1700 sq house. I bought rythmic to match with my polk 705 as well. The sub has great sound quality to match the speakers, just be prepared to need two subs do to your rooms layout.

I just purchased this exact sub today hopefully it gets here this week. Now i need to read up on how to set this bad boy up with my yamaha rxa2040. Seems like ypao and subs don't work well together .

Not necessarily. Theres a lot of bias and ignorance in these threads.

Yeah I was going to say that although I have a pioneer, I just went down the road of buying a mini DSP 2x4 HD and a UMIK-1 microphone and spent a good 2 months learning, calibrating, learning more, re-calibrating, learning more, re- well you get the point. I just got it how I like it and will be leaving it how it is for a while. If your into learning about frequency response, parametric equalization, LFE reproduction, and fine tuning the sub, I highly recommend this route. Yeah it was about $275 for the equipment, but it's so worth it. And I love that I'm very confident in my ability to use these tools and understand the results.

Wait a minute..hold the bus..
How come at the Rythmik site, in DIY amp selection, the only amp that isn't 'featured' is HX400? Why?
The 15 kit for vented has this as an amp option, and it's $150 cheaper PER kit

Can anyone here enlighten me why this amp would't be as feature-rich (besides XLR connects) as the XLR2-3 etc., if I already have a full rack PEQ, with low and hpf at my disposal?

Sorry for the oddball question.. maybe I should post in DIY, but I wanted to post it in a high traffic area like this thread too..

So, can anyone show me where I'm wrong about the features?

Cheers
-Steve

Actually, I love tube amps..
I play guitars through them.

Side note: this came today - paid $11 on eBay. Excited to watch the whole thing with the FV15HP! The demo clip from one of the bass demos was amazing.

Well, Rythmic got my F12 back today. Had a small blemish on one of the corners due to trying to place between the wall and couch it scraped on the wall. Ascend got the center cabinet back today but have not heard from them. Either way, my FV15HP should be shipping very soon.
