I'm looking at possibly buying my younger brother a sub as a birthday present and am considering some different options. He's currently running Paradigm Mini-Monitors v6 and an old entry level Klipsch sub. I was hoping to only spend up to $200, so I'm thinking that used is going to be the best route to maximize value.
His listening habits are about 50% HT/Gaming and 50% music. The listening area is about 14x20x7. It is a carpeted room in a basement with dry wall ceilings and walls. There have been some room treatments to include Auralex foam panels and a couple Auralex bass traps.
I've done quite a bit of searching and reading and the SVS PB 10 seems like a solid value at this price point, but I would like to get some more specific input to aid my decision making. I found a listing of one for $250 OBO. I'm still waiting to hear from the seller which version the sub is. I will update the thread once I hear back. I have a couple questions:
-How good of a match would it be with the Mini Monitors?
-Does it have the tightness and articulateness for music to pair well with the Paradigms?
-Would it likely have enough output to fill the space of the listening area?
Thanks for reading and any and all feedback is much appreciated!
