Attached is an old pic (Christmas time, forgive the decorations) of our TV room. The only real place I can put the sub at this time is to the left of the left speaker in the corner. Thus, I'm limited to about 15" in the width dimension of the sub. I could MAYBE fudge out another inch if I had to.
While I hope we're moving in the next year or two and I'll be able to get something like the Captivator or the Submersive, I'm looking for something to fill the gap for the time being.
I've found the Outlaw LFM-1 Plus (15" wide), HSU VTF-2 (15" wide), Epik Legend (15" wide), SVS SB12-NSD (14" wide), and some others, I'm unsure of what might work best in my situation. Usage is primary movies, TV, and games. I'm worried that the ported subs (outlaw, HSU) might be a little too boomy in the corner from what I've read. But seeing at how this will be using this for home theater, the ported design would seem to make sense. If this is the case, would I want the bottom ported Outlaw or the rear ported HSU? Or would you recommend a sealed sub in my situation?
I'd normally give room dimensions in a thread like this, but in this case, I'm not too sure it matters, as I just need the best sub for the job that will fit within this space. The smaller the better, of course, for WAF, since this is in the main room of the house.
I'd say that I'd even consider the Energy S10.3, which is a little cheaper, just cause I don't know how long I'll have these room/size constraints and I guess I'd like to spend the least amount as possible, if I'm just going to be buying something better later on.
