Subs for two different rooms?
I am looking to purchase two subs for two separate rooms in my house. I have attached a floorplan schematic of the house for reference.
The first room is the living room. It is a room open to the kitchen, dining, and entry. Dimensions of just the room itself is ~15'Wx23'L. Primary use will be TV and movies with some music at a low to moderate level. I am thinking about a passive soundbar mounted with the display above the fireplace with possible surrounds up in the ceiling later down the road. I am not needing a huge impact from the bass, but I would like a little kick. I would prefer minimal size and the aesthetics of the sub should hopefully blend with the decor.
The second room is the bonus room above the garage. Dimensions of the room are ~13'Wx17"L but will have sloped ceilings typical of some bonus rooms for about 1300 cu ft. Primary use will be TV, movies, and gaming with some music at a moderate to occasional loud level. This will be more of a HT space but will also serve as a home office. This will be a 5.1 satellite system. I am leaning towards the Definitive Technology ProCinema line for the speakers. I would like a little more punch in this system, but again not over the top since it is not a dedicated space. Less restrictions on size, shape, or aesthetics but I don't want a enormous sub taking up the space.
What subs would best suit these rooms and what would be the ideal locations?
