Hi all, im adding the almost final piece to my sound setup (rears and potentially poweramp will come) and im looking to upgrade my subwoofer
Current subwoofer : Yamaha YST-SW-315
Current Amplifier : Yamaha RX-V1900
Front Speakers : Paradigm Studio 60
Centre : Paradigm Signature c3 v1
Rears : none yet, will add before the end of the year.
prefer 12" as my room is only 15ft x 15ft (5m x 5m)
prefer sealed - i understand these sound better musically
price range $2000-3000 NZD
Ive had a few people on here tell me i should look at upgrading my subwoofer, and as i am a lover of quality bass i would love to see what i am missing out on !
I have been reccomended to look at the SVS brand of subwoofers .. so the one that comes to my mind is
SVS SB13-Ultra http://www.rapalloav.co.nz/svs-speakers-subs/subwoofers/sealed/svs-subwoofer-sb13-ultra.html
Also having heard great things about velodyne there is this
Velodyne SPL-1200 Ultra 12 - http://www.paulmoney.co.nz/shop/subwoofers/velodyne-spl1200ultra12/
This fits what i am looking for .. 12-15", D class amp powered, lots of power.
It is also sealed, which i understand sounds better musically. My main listening purpose is music (drum'n'bass and other electronic music), then PC / PS3 gaming, and lastly movies .. maybe 1-5% movie use .. so music really is the focus here.
I live in New Zealand, so our choices are somewhat limited as to what we can purchase, but i have tracked down these 3 retailers.
Im leaning towards the SVS SB13 Ultra at this stage, any input would be appreciated :-) I do enjoy heavy bass !!!!!
