Well my trusty 12 yr old Velodyne HGS-18 has recently died on me and I am looking for a replacement. My newer dedicated media room is only a 1400 CU FT (14'x11'x9') room so I am thinking that I just do not need a new sub as large as the HGS-18 I had prior. My primary listening is for movies and I do not listen to music at all in this room. I love heavy bass soundtracks and watch alot of action movies.
Budget is $2,000 max but I would like to stay well under this if possible. So far the SVS SB13-Ultra has caught my attention and am wondering what else I should consider given my budget and room specs. Would the SB13-Ultra feel like a downgrade from my older 18" Velodyne?
For reference the rest of my HT gear is as follows:
Velodyne HGS-18 (dead subwoofer)
Frequency Response: 15Hz - 120Hz
Amp: Class D, 1250 watts RMS, 3000 watts peak
AV RECEIVER: Denon 3808 CI
Power output: 130 WPC / 7-channel
