Hi, I'm looking for a sub recommendation to replace my dead Energy XLS-10. I previously had a Take 5 system with the XLS-10 and have slowly replaced everything. I had replaced most of my equipment with DefTech Mythos stuff, except for the sub. My house was struck by lightening and damaged numerous things including the receiver, subwoofer and one of the STSs. Below is what I'm replacing everything with.
My new-ish setup is as follows:
- Mythos Eight (center)
- Mythos STS (fronts)
- Mythos Gem XL (surround)
- Onkyo TX-NR818 (Receiver)
- ?? (sub)
I was never truly able to test the DefTech setup with the Energy sub as it got struck before I had all my pieces in, so I can't comment on that sound quality. Living room has vaulted ceiling, up to around 17ft at one section. It's primarily 80% TV/movie watching and maybe 20% music.
Any thoughts? As far as cost, I'd like to keep it around $600 or less if possible, but would be willing to go a bit higher if the price is right.
