As i mentioned in another thread i am all over the place trying to decide on a sub. I really would like a SVS SB1000 for a number of reasons but my budget may only allow something like the Bic F12.
I am using the sub in a 12x11x8 bedroom and the only placement would be against a wall partially obstructed by a desk. I use it 50/50 music(classic rock) and movies but consider the music to be my primary choice for quality. I read all the threads here and realize subs in the price range are not usually considered musical.
I have a Denon 1712 which has Audyssey MultEQ XT. Assuming I buy the F12 I would be keeping the sub at the lower end of its volume mainly because of the room size.
Will these factors help make the sub more musical . Maybe I should be looking for a smaller 10" sub instead of a 12"
I am afraid my budget will be stuck around the $200 mark but if I somehow miraculously can go higher I would look at the Hsu STF-2 ($375 shipped) or the SVS SB1000 ($535 shipped- includes tax for NJ) I realize a lot of people recommend the Klipsch RW-12D from Newegg for this budget range but tax in NJ puts this at $320 and I believe Newegg charges a restocking fee so I will stick with Amazon or an ID company.
Thanks for any input
