Alright gang so battle of $300 for a sub set up. My dad finally decided on getting a sub, but has a limit on 300. Hes old school, believes the speakers should do everything, and has rooms full of old huge Genesis, Epicure, and JBL towers. Dude likes his vintage setup, cant blame him though. Those things can get pretty low. And those inverted "fried egg" tweeters sound pretty cool. Anyway- So he has an extra 300 after doing some home repairs and figured he would see what a subwoofer would do to his main setup.
So the question -Two JBL Studio 1 Series SUB150P (they are onsale at NewEgg for 150 a pop). Or wait for the famous RW12D to hit 299? It seems more people like the RW12D because the upgrade path, just throw another in later and bam, you now have a serious sub set up. But he's probably not caring too much about that. Either it sounds good or hes just gonna say oh well and not upgrade, he just wants the best 300 can grab and that be it. So if i were to "quantify" it, haha, am I correct to assume one RW is like a 7, and the JBL is a 6, and two JBLs are like a 7.5-8? Yeah its horrible to do I know, but you get what I'm saying. With the JBL getting some good press lately I'm sorta leaning with 2 of those.
I own an RW12D and its pretty nice, but I don't think I'm gonna lug it all the way to his place so he can test!
