I have a huge room but am not a fan of bass that is overpowering. I prefer a smooth, musical bass. I can get it for 1500 at best buy with 2 years no interest. Any thoughts on it?

I just got mine Sunday evening and so far I'm pleased with it's sound in a fairly large room. Definitely not overpowering. I got mine as an open box (was opened 2 weeks ago) and got it for $1020. Since I'm a premier Silver member with BestBuy and so I have 60 days to return it. I'm actually looking for someone to help tweak the settings on the back.

I actually ended up buying it, and I'm pretty happy with it. I have a huge room and still can't turn it up all the way because the bass is overpowering, and its very clean sounding and musical.

A well-integrated sub in a properly-calibrated system should not deliver overpowering bass.

Looks like a pretty solid sub. cool.gif

Alternatives include the Rythmik F15HP:
- $1,184 in matte black
- $1,224 in black oak laminate
- $1,399 in piano black (although this version is currently on back-order)
(I believe shipping is extra.)

$1,599, shipped - or ~$100 more than the B&W - gets you the powerful and very well-rated SVS SB13-Ultra.
