One thing I know is that the PB-1000 with it's 10" driver outperforms many, if not all 12" subs in its price range (under $500).

 

As for the price, that's what I found...I'd love to see it that low though!

From my understanding the PB-1000 is a well regarded sub but the Rythmik LV-12 was a step above according to Jim Wilson. His reviews on both subs can be found over at hometheatreshack.com.

Op, for your room I would be looking at ported subs and 2 of them at that. However being subs above your budget have been thrown out there, what is your absolute max budget? If you can swing more then by all means by the best you can afford.

1200.00 budget---> 2 Rythmik LV12's or LFM-1's

1500.00 budget---> 2 PSA XV15's

2000.00 budget---> 2 HSU VTF-15's

2600.00 budget---> 2 Rythmik FV15HP's

You're right, I should have said under $500.

F15HP ≠ FV15HP :(

Has anybody had any experience with mid bass modules?

 

I do like the full spectrum of lower frequency, from the earth shaking feelings to the getting hit in the chest. Is there one sub that can do it all or would it be wise to plan around adding something that fills that spectrum as well?

Any sub can reproduce the mid bass. I can't imagine needing a special speaker for it.

No, but a pair of them can. Buy once, buy right. Just saying, and I am sorry to be the one to post this, you're not going get what you want within the budget you've set down.

You keep asking for that what your budget won't support. My recommendation, buy two FV15HPs, acquire decent room EQ'g capabilities and room measuring gear and be done with it.

To throw in a wild card here, you might want to look at http://www.chanemusiccinema.com/forum/showthread.php?47638-Chane-Music-and-Cinema-Garage-Sale!!. Chase Home Theater is merging into Chane Music and Cinema and a sale including their 18 inch ported sub is included. If you want power, this is it.

Bee Man i appreciate the direct honesty, thats what im after and i really like your suggestion as well. 

 

That said, I may go with one FV15HP now and save for another later. I did say building a "foundation" for my sub's :P

 

As for the extra questions thats just me trying to get an idea what i may or may not want to do later on down the road.

Well, I appreciate that you appreciate because some here don't appreciate the brevity of my pithy comments. tongue.gif

Have you stopped by and taken a look at the first couple of posts in the ULF thread? If you haven't already stopped by and taken a look, the first couple of posts will take a few minutes to make sense out of what is posted but if you don't know already, the beauty of the post, it gives one an idea how well their choices will perform in their venue. In my opinion, very nice.

Have you checked out REW? If you don't know already, it's a freeware copy of a room measuring program that has become the de facto standard of the forum. All one needs is to download a freeware copy, install and if they have a laptop, a USB measuring microphone and with a bit of time to figure out the familiarization process. And yes it's a PITA to figure out the first few days. But once up and running it's all point-n-click and you'll be able to see how your subwoofer system in interacting with the acoustics in your room. Doesn't hurt to stop by Radio Shack and purchase a digital sound meter to help setup and audit the subwoofer output and it's interaction with the acoustics in the room.

Do you have any room EQ'g capability. If not, the miniDSP is an inexpensive, interactive little box that works in tandem with REW. Again, very nice.

Sorry, I missed all the extra questions. I have a tendency to focus on the needs of the poster, not the questions the poster posts. Questions just tell me where the poster wants to go....."Where's the entrance to the northbound freeway? I want to find the easiest way to get to where ever it is I want to go." That sort of thing.

Hope the above helps.
