From here on out this is simply conversation.
went with 2 XV30f from PSA.
I will eat some of my words from my other subwoofer post about PSA not being established etc. However after reading for 3 days and exchanging emails with Tom V I'm convinced this is the best choice.

Distortion is the only thing I'm concerned about. It seems compared to the other options that the distortion might be a bit high in the lower and upper frequencies.
I also want to point out that I talked with Jeff at JTR, RE: the cap 1000s. He was helpful and accommodating but in the end that setup was just over what I wanted to spend.
Really, I'm starting new here so this isn't an upgrade or anything. I have a budget of 10k total with a 2-k buffer. I could have afforded dual cap 1000s or dual SVS pb ultras (at the discounted price) but I just couldn't find a reason to spend money here and not in other places..... like room acoustic treatments, theater chairs, etc. And as I grow older I find that trying to get more for less can sometime be fun.
I never really felt good about Rythmik. I can't put my finger on it so I won't try to pretend like I can. Full disclosure I have no facts, just a feeling.
So my audio is delivered via JBL Pro 3677 L/C/R , JBL Pro 8320 side and rear surround, PSA XV30f x2 for subs.
Feeling pretty good about that setup. .......
