In a Quandry: Get another Sub or get Bass Shakers?
I have in the last 6 months moved all my bigger gear to my basement and started building a cinema room. I have noticed that my bass seems to be lacking compared to the living room, likely due to being on a concrete foundation as well as now having about 4000ft3 to fill with bass.
Currently I am running a PC20/39 that I upgraded to the 12.3+ driver and the Sledge 400 amp and paired up with my old Klipsch Sub-10 to help even the room out.
The Klipsch is up front next to one of my towers under the screen and the SVS is in the back of the room on the other side of my chairs hiding under the stair case.
I can still get a decent amount of bass down there, but feeling I should do something else for just a little more to get back to the pressurized feeling I had on the upstairs level.
So my options are to get another sub similar in looks and performance to my current sub to make it look nicer and perform a little closer to the SVS or, use bass shakers on each one of my theater seats.
I was thinking if I went new, the closest I would find is a PC12NSD from SVS outlet for $679. If I went used, I found a local person that has a few year old PC2039+ for $450. This has the 12.3 driver, but the amp may be over what I have now.
Any suggestions from the gurus?
