First, define what you consider to be useful output, and then show me the objective data regarding the Nht ss10 at 25hz. This is Audio Video Science forum, not a place where your guesstimates are going to receive much credit.
The link YOU provided showed a price within $30 or so of the Polk I linked to.
Swing and a miss, go back and read it again, there are 2 links, one is far cheaper than the polk you linked.
Frequencies that bother the neighbors the most are the lowest ones. The wavelengths are such that they penetrate walls much easier, so maybe the NHT sub that won't play below 30hz is the best choice. Anything at high enough volumes will piss off the neighbors.
The lowest frequencies penetrate further yes, but they are also less audible, I'd much rather hear 25hz rumbles coming from a neighbors apartment rather than 60-80 hz boomy bass. Even if 25hz does piss off the neighbors, at least they won't be able to localize it back to me
As for overkill, your AVR and the sub both have ways to adjust the output.
Yeah that's what I was referring to when I said overkill, why didn't I think of that, let me just go out back and pick a few more bills off the money tree. Hell I might as well just grab an Svs SB16 right, I can always just turn it down if it's overkill, and I've always wanted a 3000$ paperweight. Why is "budget" always such a difficult concept for a few folks around here?
