Recently moved to Triad Gold LCRs for my front stage and Bronze LCRs for my side surrounds and rear surrounds. I have an SVS PC12 Plus and am planning on upgrading. I’m now wired for a second subwoofer and will be upgrading to a dual setup.
My room is 3,700 cubic feet. The room does not open up to other rooms, however, it’s not sealed. I sit approximately 9 feet from the subs and the subs will be positioned anywhere between 5-8 feet from each other. I primarily watch movies, however, will occasionally pop in a CD.
I’ve been debating between dual PSA XS30s or dual Rythmik FV15HPs for a long time and reading the board on this topic, of which these 2 subs have been written about frequently. I still can’t decide. The FV15HP has a 5.1db advantage in the 20–31.5Hz range, however, the XS30 has a 3.1db advantage in the 40-63 Hz. range (based on PSA measurement and independent measurement for the FV15HP). Not concerned about the price difference as they both fit into max $3K budget. Also, I have time and understand the black oak FV15HP is stocked out until late October/early November timeframe.
Your thoughts and feedback on these two options, and any other suggestions are welcome. Some of the bigger subs don’t work for me based on physical space (i.e. Triax, JTR S2, 36" depth of XV30). Also, no DIY due to lack of capability, time and interest.
