You can buy an SVS PB2000 from their Outlet Store for $649.99, no tax and free shipping. That's what I did.

This is a fascinating discussion between ported and sealed. I'm wondering if I'm a candidate for sealed or would I still be better off ported? My room is 13x10x8 (high) and I can keep the door closed. 80 movies/tv/games, 20 music.

I've had a few people say I would be better off with sealed but I'm wondering if I would get more out of ported anyways?

I'm deciding between these, and as you can see, a lot of it is simply ported v sealed

If those room measurements are accurate then you are only talking about 1049 cubic feet and I can tell you either of the SVS subs are going to fill that room with ease. Can't comment on the others as I haven't heard them but I own a sb2000(among a few others) and it handles a larger room just fine. If you have a Best Buy with a Magnolia nearby you might see if they would let you audition the SVS subs, that's how I got my SB2000 for $500. It would at least add some context for you.

You might get enough room gain in your room with a sealed sub to justify sealed, but you generally get more usable sub output for the same money with a ported sub.
