So here is the deal I'm building my first home theater setup and I'm trying to narrow down the sub choices to go along with the speakers.
-The HT will be used for 40% TV (Digital Cable via HDMI), 30% Movies (PS3 as my DVD/Blueray player via HDMI), 20% music, 10% games (PS3).
-The room all open and a split between a living room and a dining room approximately 22' long x 17' wide with 9 foot ceilings & hardwood floors (mostly covered by two 10' x 12' rugs).
-The entertainment center takes up the majority of the living room 17' wall and the optimum position to place the sub is in the corner to the right of the entertainment center (a little over 2' available in width, I'd prefer not to go much deeper than 17" and height isn't really a problem). The one thing that concerns me a little about this position is there is a large double sliding glass door that runs along the wall about 2' away from where the sub would be.
-My budget is $500-600 or less.
-The speakers that I will be using will be one of the following (on shelfs in the entertainment center with 7-9 inches of space behind them):
1. Cambridge Audio S30 & S50 (leader right now)
2. Boston Acoustics A25 & A225
3. Polk TSi 200 & CS10
4. Infiniti Primus P153 & PC251
5* There is a very outside chance I might go with NHT Absolute Zero or Classic 2 or KEF Q series if I get a chance to hear them and they blow me away in comparison to the others on my list
I've had the BIC F12 & PL200, Rhythmic FV12 and the Polk PSW505 suggested to me, but have read that the Outlaw LFM1-EX might be the best I can get in my budget. Which of these have good tight and controlled bass and would work best in my room?
Thanks for the help.
