I've been reading and reading and would like to get a few things straight. I'm getting two of one or the other. It's a 260.00 dollar difference in favor of the Rythmiks
SVS told me that I'd need a dedicated 15 amp circuit to run two of their ultra ported (it's a class D amp)
Rythmik told me I could throw both on with the rest of my gear. This doesn't sound right to me.
SVS has auto power off, and so does the upgraded Rythmik H600XLR2 at an extra cost of 40 dollars.
You also get the bonus of being able to control both subs with one amp however Rythmik said since I'm using LFE outputs (my AVR has 2 but they're Y'd on the inside) off my AVR that I don't need the slave control. Since my receiver will do it all for both anyways. BUT I have a Pioneer and Im not all that up on MCAAC yet. From what I understand it's lacking some sub EQ features. But, I'm not sure. Looking for some input on this.
Overall amp quality and features. Seems like this goes to SVS. SVS also seems easier, more conventional which is what I'd be more familiar with. The Rythmik has the rumble filters, and some other features that I'm not familiar with, and others have noted as being time comsuming to dial in and/or figure out. I've also read over and over that the SVS EQ is more robust.
Yet again, I've read over and over that 'for the price' the Rythmik is the better value.
I'm getting a discount and a 260.00 difference is hardly much. Plus I could get a better finish from an SVS should the subs end up in the room exposed. If I want that finish with the Rythmik it's a 35 dollar difference.
SVS has the better warranty. The upgrade program.
The customer service seems to be a tie with if anything the slight lead going to SVS.
Both woofers have similar output and I can't find overwhelming reports of one having better sound quality than the other. It seems reading posts from 2011 the favorite was the SVS. Seems lately the Rythmik is the favorite.
I need some help on these.
It looks like I'm going to be going with the original plan of JBL Pro 3677 for front stage and JBL Pro 8320 for surrounds. Need to get this sub thing figured out.
