I have been searching for a new subwoofer for quite a long time. After reading through a couple of forums I narrowed it down to these two subs. I also considered Rhytmik subs, but I wasn't able to find a distributor in Europe. My room is quite small - 10.4×9.8×13.4 (w×h×d) feet. It doesn't open to other rooms.
The sub will be placed near the corner of my room. I have no problems with a ported ultra size. My mains are JBL 580 . The sub will be used for about 80% music and 20% movies. I don't listen to music and movies at high volumes. About -20 db on receiver. Of course, there will be moments, when I turn it up:).
In regards to music, I listen mainly to hip hop & rap (Jay Z, Nas, Biggie, etc.). I occasionally listen to rock, electronic or classical. I would be very grateful, If somebody who listened to both can help me decide, which one would work better in my listening environment. Thanks a lot.
