Here is CEA-2010 measurement of STF-2 (from Hsu website) and NX-BAS-500 (from Sound and Vision review)

 

         STF-2        NX-BAS-500

Hz     Max SPL    Max SPL

20     94.2           96.2

25     107.1         105.5

31.5  112.7          114

40     114            116.1

50     116.9          116.8

63      118.6         116.5

 

U-low Ave 20-31.5  

STF-2 104.7db NX-BAS-500 108db

 

Low Ave 40-63

STF-2 116.5db NX-BAS-500 116.5db

 

Based on measurement above, do you think that they are similar performance-wise?

Did you check to see if the measurements are taken at the same distance? If not, the SPL figures would have to be adjusted.

Hsu website says 1m ground plane measurement. Brent in S&V says he peformed CEA-2010A output measurement at 3m and added +9.5db to scale the measurement to 1m reporting standard mandated by CEA-2010.

Once you drop below $500, I don't think you will find a better quality sub than Hsu's lower offerings.  They would be my pick if I had to limit my budget to under $500.


AVR:       Yamaha RXV-375

Display:  Panasonic  TH-50PC77U

LCR:       Hsu HB1.2  HC1.2

Sub:       (2) PSA XV15se

Blu Ray:  Sony BDP-S5100

Apple TV

Harmony 650

miniDSP

I feel the same way; I've tried some other sub $500 subs, and HSU makes a better sub IMO. If the OP can push his budget to $499, the SVS PB-1000 is definitely an upgrade.
