I need to replace my Paradigm PDR-10 sub - it is broken and non-functional (10 year old system: Yamaha rxv800, Paradigm Mini Monitor fronts and Paradigm cinema v1 rears). Never felt that I was getting reasonable bass effects from the PDR, so now I'm looking for a replacement. However, before I go further, let me say that although I can be particular, I'm not an audiophile, nor do I need to shake the cabinets of my entertainment center (I won't be looking to blast it), nor anything else. All I want are reasonable bass effects that will enhance the listening experience (movies, TV, CDs). I'm willing to spend upwards to $250 and obviously I'm not looking for anything that is super good as I'll settle for "reasonable" performance. For the sub I have a few main requirements:
1. There is a size constraint so that the sub will fit into a cabinet (when not in use). The sub should not be wider than 13.5", nor longer than 16.5"
2. Because of size constraints, I would think that a 10" sub would do, but if there was a 12" sub that would fit, I'd take a look at it
3. I would like the sub to have automatic sensing for on/off, volume, LFE in, and crossover controls
BTW, I've looked at wireless speakers in my price range and am fearful getting one as I've seen too many complaints about interference from other wireless components that would be near the transmitter. This would be my situation and I just don't want to hassle about whether or not the sound will be compromised.
