There really is a big difference going from the budget subs to the entry-level "good" subs. It is also down-firing so if you have pets/children it is more protected. I know it's more than you want to spend, but if you are only getting one sub, I would try and save up some more for a good one.

If your budget is firm, I would go with the NXG.
It's something to consider. I'm not sure if my budget can rise much higher than $300. At the most I *might* be able to get away with $500 but that's at the very most. At that price I would consider the SVS SB-1000. What other alternatives to this and the LFM-1 Plus at that price range?

Stand tall and shake the heavens...

The LFM-1 Plus will outperform the SB-1000. With your budget you don't want sealed in that room unless you're gonna keep the sub in your lap.

The Outlaw LFM-1 Plus is better than the PB-1000, and there isn't anything better for that money. The next closest sub is probably the Rythmik LV12R but that is over $600 with shipping.

He posted SB1000 which has overall less output than the PB1000. And they both have less output than the Plus.

Good catch, as long as space isn't an issue the LFM-1 Plus is the sub to get.
