Since you have a PB 1000 I'd step up to a PB Plus or PB Ultra. No point in just going up one level

Krell Evolution 900e x 7

Bose Jewel speakers.

 

Jealous of my speakers?

I thought the same thing until I dialed in a pair of Rythmik FV15HPs.

As you were asked, how serious (money) are you in achieving your goal?

If that's the case and I'm not being disrespectful, my recommendation would be to check out the "budget" thread as one really does need a copy of REW and two subwoofers (one placed nearfield) to get the best out of the acoustics in their room.

The above thread is where I would expect you will find the best bang for your buck.

A freeware copy of REW and two SVS PB2000s ($1,598.00) or a freeware copy of REW and a pair of PSA XV15s; $1.518.10, delivered.

(a few dollars more. that's the fault of the manufactures as they're the ones setting the prices)

...redface.gif

Once dialed in, you'll understand, they're worth the extra hundred bucks. If fiscally constrained, one can always purchase a single subwoofer unit, download a freeware copy of REW, get REW up, dial in the single sub purchase and in a month or three, when a few more dollars are available, add the second subwoofer.

The point, there's nothing wrong with half-stepping-and-hee-hawing a subwoofer purchase.

How big is your room?  Need L x W x H.  Also, what are your placement options?  Making a blind recommendation for dual subs or a single sub does not make sense without knowing your room layout.  My room is restricted to a single sub.  Some rooms are more optimal for two.  This will affect which route to go, such as dual PB2000's or a single Rythmik FV15HP.

These?

And you can either keep the 1000 or sell it (I just got mine from the outlet for $450).

Depending on how old it is, you may be able to "trade up" directly with SVS. Might be worth calling them.

Don't be silly. He'll sell the Rythmiks and get two OSs.

You could just add another PB-1000. Some single sub options include the HSU VTF-15H around the $1K mark shipped and Rythmik FV15HP for a bit more, but has loads of output.

Another subwoofer thread where we go 'round and 'round?

Please check any of the many other threads where this same topic has been beaten to death.

The problem is that you have many choices, most of them similar, all of them good.

Unless you want to try each one IN YOUR ROOM, you'll have to take a small leap of faith. At least you can usually buy something with a return policy in case you really don't like it.

Welcome to AVS, BTW. ;)

For a single sub, go for a Rythmik FV15HP.
For dual subs, get a pair of Hsu VTF3 mk4s.

What are your expectations out of the final choice?

(we have FV15HPs)

Not being flip, they both have these two features.

What size is your room? How many cubit feet? This will help.

I like the FV15HP for output, the Direct Servo Technology and the PEQ that helps considerably when dialing the subwoofer in to work with the acoustics in the room.

According to tests done by Josh on Data-Bass, the FV15HP has more output at 12.5Hz and has a bit more/less (depending on the Hz) output than a SVS PB13-Ultra in the upper octaves. Without equivocation, the FV15HP is a price/performance/output monster. I'm only sharing the facts as I know them to be true and accurate. I'm also a huge fan of the SVS PC12-Plus. Spec wise, in my opinion, there's something special about this unit.

I'm a fanboy of a couple of other subwoofers.

PSA XS30

and the

Rythmik F25

My final purchase was swayed by a forum member who has moved to another forum and content found in the first couple of posts in the ULF thread. Like most, our finances were limited and like most, I wanted the deepest, highest output subwoofer I could afford a pair of, and the FV15HP met this specification.

At this level, there are many choices that are equally good. One needs to search their soul to find the one that best fits their needs. Of the ones that I listed, there are no losers as they're all winners and no matter which one you purchase, you'll be happy. Sorry, in the end, the buyer has to be the final arbiter.

If 2324^3, then overall, you'd be best served (depth of extension and amount of output) by the FV15HP.

If willing to give up some output for more depth of extension, than a F25; advantage, depth of extension..

If overall price is a consideration, than a PSA XS30; advantage, depth of extension.

In my opinion the PB12-Plus hits the middle ground of the above.

Check out the first couple of posts in the ULF thread.
