A Newbie needing help choosing a budget Sub for music only.
The room is about 1500 cubic feet (maybe less) and the sub will be used for mixing music I've recorded on my DAW. Currently I have 3 pair of near field monitors all costing between $70 -$200 (Alesis Passive 6, Hosa Cue 5, and JBL Control 5. The Amp is a crown XLS1000 if that matters.
The Sub will under my desk in an area of about 24"H x 24" D x 20" W.
I don't need (or want) wall shaking floor pounding bass. I need the bass to be clean, tight, and accurate as recorded so when I mix it I'm getting an accurate representation to start with. This way when I play the music on various systems, it sounds good.
I might be able to fit a Dayton Sub-1200 I've read so much about but not sure it's the right one and might cramp how I sit at the PC.
The SVS PB-1000 has been recommended but I can't see spending $500 on a sub when the speakers are cheapies.
Between this forum and looking at reviews on the Internet, I've come across probably 25+ different Subs (8"--12") and at this point am totally confused.
Is there something out there under $300 that would fit my needs? Just found the Klipsch SW-450 for $188. Space is tight but maybe I can turn it sideways? What do you think?
