I am currently looking to upgrade my subwoofer to something more heart felt. My HT is
Located in the basement of my home with carpeted concrete floors. The size of the room measures out to be 18x14x8 dedicated. My speakers are a older set of paradigm 7seMk3 fronts with a paradigm center, sides and rears to complete the 7.1 setup. The subwoofer that I am dying to replace is a Dayton sub1200. I am searching for a MORE powerful, hard hitting, heart felt subwoofer that speaks for itself. My budget max $700. My receiver is a Yamaha RX-v673. My use is 50/50 between BD movies and Tv. Could someone please provide some suggestions of subwoofers in my price range that can cut the mustard or do I have champaign taste with beer money?? Will consider a DIY kit also. Thank you in advance!

At $699, the SVS PC12-NSD would fit the bill. If you can spend a little more, the PSA XV15 is worth a look. Other subs worth a look are the HSU VTF-3 MK4 and Outlaw LFM-EX.

Their a great option! small footprint, easy to move, lighter, very durable, blends in way more than one would think - way more and co$ts less.

First off, props on your 7se Mk3s! cool.gif I love older Paradigms - my first pair of speakers were Paradigm 7se's (which I had for 20 years) and I currently have a pair of 5se MkIIs in my home office. smile.gif

Re. a new sub: If you can manage another $99, the PSA XV15 ($799, shipped) should make you very happy. It's a powerful and well-rated sub, and it's from a (relatively new) company with excellent pedigree (Tom Vodhanel, one of the founders, is ex-SVS) which offers a solid warranty and top-notch customer service.

Failing that, the other recommendations made are all solid choices. Happy shopping! biggrin.gif
