We differ in fact and figures basshead. I don't want to derail the OP and just make the point that there are other good options and people are always wanting more performance. You can even pair the sub with an INuke 300 for $399 with DSP to lower the price. I put my package together for less than your figures. I can be contacted in private to not derail the post.

It does not matter which amp you use...everytime power is doubled, output is increased by 3db. So if the sub1 amp is 600watts a channel, you would need 4800watts a channel to increase output 9db...which the ss18.1 will not come close to handling. I talked to the owner of Chase today, so your figures differ from his. There are plenty of good options, but your post about "pounding the xv15 out of the park for less money" is bull **** at best. wink.gif

Here is a graph of the old 18.1 compared to other heavy hitting subs. It's sealed design account for what is happening around 20 Hz. It achieved the highest spl of the subs in this subwoofer shootout.

Here is a graph from a subwoofer shootout with some other great subs. The Chase sub had the highest max spl. The response around 20 Hz is due to it sealed design compared to the ported subs in the shootout.

The bottom line is in a typical home theater the PSA or Chase sub would give excellent results. The point of the post was to give options and the more choice people have the better.

Thanks basshead 81, and the PSA subs are of high quality. The Chase sub are a great value and overlooked by many people because they are not as popular due to the size of the company. So many comparable subs, that the real deciding factor is cost and cosmetics. Thanks for the Mini DSP recommendation on the other thread. Oh and changing amps only goes so far since a 15 amp outlet can do only 1800 watts, lol. I know I am not putting in any 20 watt circuits: just no need for that overkill since it will exceed reference level in my home and I do need my hearing if I want to stay in this hobby.smile.gif

How far are you from the border...I recently bought two 15`` subs and an amp from Parts Express (who gave me free shipping to Niagara Falls NY) Jumped across and picked them up. Customs was busy so they just `let me go` and I paid no duty. Total cost was around $340.00 and my house shakes as a result.

One more question, is LV12R sub overkill for Paradigm Cinema 5.1 setup ?
I'm thinking LCR Cinema 400 and Cinema 200 for back.

Nope. smile.gif Integrate it into your set-up, calibrate, tweak (if/as desired) and you're good to go.

Rythmik gets my vote, but HSU, Outlaw, and SVS all have great subs in this price range.

I was planning on the SVS to match my Paradigm Atom/Surround1/Center 1, but after some reading considering the Rythmik. I do wish I could get a look at one, their website is greatly lacking. All these independants would help themselves out HUGE by spending some $$ on a solid looking website.

I'm looking for a sub with great sound for movies and video games but I don't want to shake the house...I'm more about an immersive sound than a loud sound. Between those mentioned who wins that sound? The room is 12x18x8 and carpeted.

Thanks!

For sub I could do something around $500-600 but not sure where to even start.

I would go the LVR rout if I were in your shoes.
