Had a JBL sub and the amp has blown out after 7 years..looking to replace been doing some research over the past day or so and seeing we don't have many good options in canada compared to the states for the price range.
This is mainly for Movies/TV, Gaming with some music.
Can get a BIC F-12 on ebay shipped to me here for around $310 after duties. Other option was the Klipsch RW-12D on newegg right now for $279 + duties + tax something like $380 but I have to go across the border to pick it up (another like 50 bucks in gas).
Question was is there anything in Toronto that I can go into a store and pick up within the $300-$400 after taxes that's comparable?
Would second the SVS. I have looked at retail subs, I have had the SB-1000 in my house, and if you can, save the money.
Compared it with a more expensive Martin Logan from Future Shop, no comparison. Tighter bass, better extension. No one regrets a good audio purchase. Get the PB-1000 for movies and games.
The sub 12 will probably be your next best choice, seen a number of people recommend it in your price bracket. Good luck.
