Just a fun thread to see what everyone would choose if money were not an object.  Choose something that would be realistic as far as size goes for your space that you would actually want to have, and what you have now.

 

I currently have(enroute), a PSA XS30.

 

Cost no object, with what I know now, I would possibly opt for a pair of Seaton Submersives in a dark espresso finish.

^^ With the space / home I have now? The XS30 (which is what I bought). Sure, I would love the SubM (it was at the top of my list), but it was complete overkill for my needs and too big for my space (I think the XS30 is too big, but I'm getting use to it). I was also thinking about the Sub2, the Gotham G213 and the Triax, but they are even bigger and a lot heavier.

Submersive. I have never read where anybody said anything negative, just smiles and giggles.

Funk 18.0 (I've got an SE on order) x4 (some day biggrin.gif). Hard hitting, attractive, and practical (the SE is <100lbs and a 20" cube).

Price no object, I would go for a bunch of Funk 18.0 subs, or something using LMS Ultras. About 16 of them should do, four stacks of four. Something like Bossobass's system would be tremendous as well.

Whats fun is to see who is actually happy with what they currently have with cost no object, who would resort to relatively minor, but substantial upgrades, and who would just go completely over the top with four orbit shiftrs, etc.  I don't have a dedicated theater room so the dual Submersives would be waaaaaaay more than I could ever actually fully use.

For me that list is a bit of subs I would like to hear before I die list. And probably what I would pick from if I had no constraints. But honestly a Triax or two would likely be all I ever needed.... that would be my reference.

But I still love audio so hearing others options would still be a treat.

2 - DIY Sound Group V-8 Coaxials (game room)

It does actually bother me that I have an odd number of Triax's smile.gif

Not sure it bothers me enough to pay $3k for another though. They play flat to just below 5hz - but, it looks odd to only see one up front. smile.gif
