Looking to replace a couple of these Mirage Prestige S8 8" subs with a rear port - http://www.miragespeakers.com/subwoo...ku=PRESTIGE-S8
We are 95% TV/Movies/Sports
Room is Family/Dining with an open dining room. 18 deep and 24 wide with 10 ft ceilings. Listening area is set up to one side 18 x 16 x 10 high with the obvious opening into the dining area
I have the mirage subs set up on the left and right of the entertainment center about 7' apart.
Simple 5.2 set up. I am running a Yamaha V675 that is about to be replaced by a Yamaha A3000. Aperion 5T towers and 5C center. Triad In wall Omni plus in the rear.
The two little Mirage" just don't seem to be cutting it anymore. The Aperion 5T towers may produce almost as much bass as the Mirage Subs.
Ideally, I would like to replace with one larger sub and maybe add a second later.
WAF is a big deal here. Everything we have in the front is piano black. Preferably the same would be great might get away with satin. The black oak look will not work.
Small form factor is important as well. The two small Mirage look nice on the floor between the 2 towers. I would like to do the same down the road.
I have been searching the used market for a SVS - SB12 NSD but am I going to be happy with it as a single versus the two I have? Am I going to wish for a ported sub since I am mostly Sports and movies?
What about the HSU VTF-1 MK2? I am worried it is a tad big though? 15" cubed or smaller would be great. Used Martin Logan MK1000? Aperion Bravus 10D II?
$500 for one sub is really the most I want to spend.
Anything else I should be looking at?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
