Ready for a New Sub........Decisions, Decisions
Well, the rattle coming from my Energy S10.3 has reached such an annoying level that I'm ready to buy a new subwoofer. Problem is I am having a hard time making up my mind.
I have a relatively small sealed room, about 11' x 20' x 7'. It's a basement separated by a staircase, so the actual area I'm working with is more like 11' square. Floor is ceramic tile on concrete. I currently have the S10.3 in a corner next to the love seat and it sounds great there, except for the rattle of course.
After doing way too much research, I've narrowed my choices to the following:
Power Sound Audio XS-15se
Power Sound Audio XV-15se
I would like to go with one of the sealed subs but I'm concerned that I will not get the impact I have with the S10.3.
I currently have the Pioneer first generation floorstanders, center and bookshelfs powered by a Denon AVR-1912.
Right now, I am leaning towards the PB-1000, VTF2-MK4 or the XS-15se. Right now, $800 is the max and that's really stretching it.
What would my fellow forum members choose for my situation? I am thinking the PB-2000 or XV-15se would be overkill in my small space. If you think otherwise, please let me know. Any and all answers appreciated.
