From the recent article by Brent Butterworth " the best of today’s inexpensive subwoofers can outperform many of the top models from 15 or 20 years ago. " This quote has pushed me to post this question, discounting the heavy hitters, Seaton, JTR, ect., where does my Paradigm Servo 15 stack up against the PSA, Rythmiks, ect. of todays AV world? I have enjoyed the S-15 since 1998 and it is still great for music but in my current room (sealed,dedicated, 2700 cu ft) it falls short in the movie dept. The gist of my question is, where in the food chain and what models in the PSA-Rythmik line ups will best my old friend? I like my movies but listen to some music most everyday. Music is important. Looking forward to hearing some thoughts and opinions.
