PL-200 Now or Wait?

I have a fairly large room, 24x19x10 (4560 CF), that I am piecing together a new sound system for. This will not be my primary HT room but I would like it to have a respectable system. Additionally, I am not in a huge hurry to complete the system and I am willing to wait to get the best deals.

I am aware a room of this size may require multiple "Budget" subs. I also know the PA-150 is probably a better sub for this room. However the PL-200 is on sale right now for $259, while the PA-150 is selling for $499. My question is from a value perspective is the current deal on PL-200 likely to be the best value I am going to see in the next 6 months or so, or in your experience do you expect I can get a better value waiting it out.

I know you can't predict the future but I am new to this market and would really appreciate any insights you all could provide.

For that size room you will want to wait and get the PA-150.

You should definitely wait. How can a room that size not be your primary HT room?

It is my "Formal" living room, has a section with a fire place and the entry way, all one room though. The "entertainment" section only uses about 12x15 of that space. Sadly, since its all open I will still need to fill the room. My main HT room is in my basement.

So about what price would you expect I could see the PA-150 at during a Black Friday type sale?

Thanks for the help, really appreciate the insight.

type in search tempest and look for some used subs like the PA 150 and others. You may have to drive a little bit but, this is how I got my SVS sub and PA 150.
