I am currently upgrading my speakers, which I bought 2 ProMonitor 1000's for the right and left. I have the Procenter 1000 for the center of course. I am using small ProCinema 600 satellites as the rears for now. I have a Martantz SR-5008 on the way this week or next. Which subwoofer would you recommend for this particular set up. I live in a small apartment, but will be moving within the next year.

I would recommend not a DefTech sub. smile.gif There are plenty of better-value subs to buy.

What is your budget? How large (l x w x h) do you think your future HT space will be?

You do not need to match sub with speakers.

I really don't know for future space thats the problem. I don't know where I will be or moving then. And my audio supplier gives me close to 50 percent off with there Def Tech products...

Okay, so, what's the max amount you're prepared to spend today on a sub?

$499 will get you a well-rated SVS PB-1000. The price includes shipping, and SVS offers free return-shipping within 45 days.

If nothing else, it's worth a no-cost demo. And if you end up liking it, you're set. smile.gif

If you can or want to spend a bit more, options include:
- the HSU VTF-2 MK4 (currently on sale for $529 + $67 shipping); and
- the very highly-rated Rythmik LV12R ($589, not sure if that includes shipping).

Going by the Def Tech subs listed in poll on top of this page and looking at their prices on Amazon without shipping, the suggested ID subs will murder the corresponding def tech entry within the same price ballpark;

ProSub 800: $400 (SVS PB-1000)
Prosub1000: $500 (Rythmik LV12R)
SubperCube 2000: $600 (HSU VTF-2 MK4)
SubperCube 4000: $800 (PSA XV-15)
SubperCube 6000: $1000 (HSU VTF15H)


I wouldn't be wrong in saying Def Tech doesn't qualify as a sub if pitched against ID big boys. Choice is yours.

Anyone have any thoughts on the Super cube III? small 12'x12' room using a Marantz sr4002 with a pair of sm450's and clr2000 and was using a bic pl-200 sub but ran out of room? 8' wall and may update the fronts to bp10's at some point. I like the size of the super cube III less than 11"x11" but are the numbers they are listing correct? and would this be an upgrade?

I would take the SVS SB-1000 or SB12-NSD over the Supercube III. Def Tech is known to exaggerate their specs.

Thanks for the information, the only problem with the 2 that you mentioned is the size? I think I read that the svs is as large as the pl-200 that I am more than satisfied with, but was just trying to get everything on that same wall as far as mains and sub

I ended up going with the SuperCube 2000. I'm very impressed with the bass along with how small it is. I like the smaller foot print.

I am in a similar position as OP except I'd like a subwoofer recommendation under $400 (actually preferably under $300). I have the Definitive Tech 1000 as the Center, and the 800s for the other 4 speakers. My living room is also smaller.

Do you guys have any subwoofer recommendations?

Reaction Audio BPS 212 might be a good option. Check it out here: http://reaction-audio.myshopify.com/products/bps-212-powered-subwoofer

I like some of the Def Tech speakers, but I agree their subs are overrated.
