In the market for a subwoofer and this thread was definitely an interesting read! I know the common response I may get is that once you're in this class of subwoofer there is no "loser" so to speak, but would be curious as to, subjectively, what are the differences in the sound of the SubMersive HP vs. the Captivator S and, were I to get just one, what are some criteria that I should consider that would help me decide which would be best for my situation.
Room is a living room, so while I don't need the sub to be furniture quality (I do own Vandersteen 3A Sigs as my mains, so obviously black boxes aren't THAT big a deal), it can't be obstrusive. That is where the Cap S, being the smaller sub, may be more attractive to me. Space is ~12 x 20 but opens up into the kitchen and dining room in the back and hallway/stairway foyer on the right side, so it's a decently large, non-sealed space.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
