Hey guys got DT 8060 towers,8080hd,and 8080 surrounds and am looking to fill the low end now. Am really looking to spend no more than 1500 and it will be for 90% ht and the other 10% music. I really am liking what I hear about the svs ultra 13 and that is a contender in my book but what else out their would give me a kick in my chest feeling? Also if I were to purchase outlaws wireless kit for sub would it work on the svs or any other non outlaw model?

At $1500 you can get a lot more kick than a sealed 13" sub. I would be looking at the Rythmik and Power Sound Audio subs, you could get something that would destroy a SB13 Ultra. Also, yes, Outlaw's kit will work with other subs.

I would get 2 PSA XV15's. With shipping it will be just over $1,500.

For one sub, max of $1,500:

PowerSoundAudio.com:
- XS30 ($1,149, shipped)
- XV30 ($1,399, shipped)

RythmikAudio.com
- FV15HP ($1,274 + shipping)

My recommendation would be two Power Sound Audio XV-15's.......http://www.powersoundaudio.com/ . Relatively a new company owned by Tom Vodhanel and Jim Farina.
You can get dual XV-15's for $1520 (5% discount on duals) and that includes shipping. 15" driver, 500 watt bash amp w/4" port in rear of sub. Down firing driver. Black with a little grayish look.
Color with a very durable textured finish that looks very nice.

5 yr guarantee on everything. Best customer service you could ask for.

Tom Vanhanel is the "V" in SVS....without him I seriously don't think SVS would have ever existed. I've had many subs,
5 HSU's including the HSU VTF3 MK3 with turbo option, Velodyne, top end Mirage, and 3 PSA subs that
trumps them all. Just my opinion.

Now I want the ability to feel this bass and hurt the foundation of the house lol. But really I appreciate the feedback and will look into all of those. And I assume it would be better to have 2 other than 1 sub due to displacement so those xv15s do sound tempting.

Honestly? Based on what you want, your room size and your budget I would be looking at DIY. You can buy pre-made enclosures, drivers, and a power amp and easily build dual 18" subs that will give you far more output and extension than anything listed in this thread. I started out with an Hsu VTF 15H and ended up going DIY. For $1K I built 4 passive 15" subs and was able to power them.

Then I am going to need separate amps as well pushing my budget further and I am no carpenter so ad the money for the enclosure and finding someone with the software needed to ensure it is matched properly to the sub and room acoustics. I really just want a turn key ready to go option maybe later down the road but for now just something I can buy and be done with.

You don't need seperate amps. One amp will power both and is included in the $1500 price point.

With the flat packs they are already the right size for the $249 Dayton 18" drivers. You just need wood glue, clamps, and paint+primer.


But hey, DIY is not for everyone. No worries. Based on your room size I would go with duals XV15's if you can squeeze it in. Dual subs in a large room are pretty much a must to smooth out response.

That would be true except for the frequencies between 12.5hz and 20hz. 1 Rythmik FV15HP would have more output than two Dayton 18in HO's co-located in that frequency range.

 

Pretty impressive for a single 15in ported sub...

 

I'm just pointing that out for clarification...between the two choices, I'd go with the DIY 18's. smile.gif

Where can you get flat packs for the 18" drivers?

I knew about them. I wanted to know of a place that actually sometimes has something in stock.

So what did you end up doing here to bring closure to this thread?
