I'm putting together a media room that is about to be drywalled and is approx 18'x20' with 8' ceilings. I currently
have a PSB T6's for L & R, PSB Imagine center speaker, and 2 PSB B5 for surrounds (may add 2 more B5's for 7.1).

I've read a lot about these 2 along with the HSU 15" (forget model#) and narrowed it down to these 2. I currently have a lower end Velodyne 10" that sounds ok, but really wanted to go up to a 15" to get that super low bass that you feel and blows you away with movies along with music. Does the Rhythmik 15" get lower than the SVS? Or is it negligible? Probably about 60% movies, 40% music use. All of this driven by a Denon AVR-4311CI.

Thoughts?? Opinins??

Thanks in advance,

Rob

Yeah, since price is close I've read their close in performance. Maybe not??

The FV15HP's output compares favorably with the PB13U, meaning it will deliver more output than the PB12+. There are still reasons to go with SVS (better warranty, better base finish options, etc), but in terms of raw performance, the Rythmik is difficult to beat for the $$$.
