What are you looking to get out of the sub?
If sticking to the $650.00 price point, one of these (SVS, SB12-NSD)
should beg one's interest. Can't rightly say why but Outlaw has never grabbed my attention over offerings by SVS or Rythmik. Could be that for various reasons I'm prejudiced against down firing subs or it could be that the piano black looks so much better or it could be because at this price point, when I look at the specs and graphs, in my opinion, in this price range, for a hundred bucks more, the SVS, PB12-NSD
, always rises to the top.
In the case of the smaller SB12-NSD, cost performance wise, it's comparable to the Outlaw. But due to finer performance issues, peak output and THD distortion at 20Hz, the edge goes to SVS. Personally, I prefer the form factor of the SVS, SB12-NSD.
The point of the above ramblings, ultimately, what you want or expect to get out of a sub, I would expect to be the deciding factor as at this price point, these are all close on all fronts. Don't you just love wishy-washy responses?
