Hello fellow AVS members:

Lurking member here. I found this site last year when looking for a budget sub, which lead to my upgrade from my Onkyo HTIB sub to an Energy S-10.3. Initially I was thrilled, but I made the mistake of continuing to visit this site regularly. Now I'm feeling the need to upgrade, since when I listened to the War of the worlds reference scene, I was disappointed.

I have the following setup:

Denon AVR 1912 Receiver
Pioneer Sp-fs51 5.0 Surround speaker System
PlayStation 3
LG 3d Blu-ray player
LG 47" Led 3d HDTV
Energy S10.3 Sub

The room I have my setup in is only 10' by 11' with 7' ceiling. Based on the size, I've been leaning towards a 12" sub, thinking a 15" is too much, both in terms of size and output. I'm currently considering either the SVS PB-12 NSD or the Rhythmik LV12R. Am I on the right track, or should I be considering others?

Any and all suggestions are appreciated, thanks.

Steve R.

There is no such thing is too much subwoofer...the more headroom the better. In that small room I would go sealed. A PSA XS15 for 749.00 shipped would work awsome in that room!

+1. You can never have too much sub. I too would go sealed like the PSA basshead mentions or the SVS SB12-NSD which costs less and will easily perform in that room.

Basshead81 and rnatalli,

Thanks for the input. Would either of these subs be good for music? Would one be better over another? I have found that I listen to music a lot more since I put this system together and I'm able to access my iTunes library. I know you can't have everything in a single unit, but I would like to get as close as I can for the money.

The PSA will have the advantage in output, but SVS subs are incredibly linear. Either one will handle music perfectly. I would go with the SVS in this case and save yourself $100, but if you think you'll need a bigger sub in the near future, go with the PSA. Another option is the SVS SB-1000 which is $499 shipped. Not as robust as the NSD, but still a great sub for the money.

Well, I'm not moving anytime soon, but I may do some remodeling to open up the room by a few more feet. At the most extending the overall floor space to 10' x 15'. I don't think that will change things much.

I checked out the XS-15 and I have to admit it looks tempting. Going to take some measurements when I get home in August. After I get past the wife and mother's birthdays, I'll be pulling the trigger, probably on the XS-15 or the Rythmik LV12R.

Thanks.
