I think it's crazy that you have decided yet. All recommendations have pretty much been the same...not sure what you're debating. Sounds like you have your heart on the rythmik, despite recommendations. If that's the case, go for it. However, be sure of the reasons behind your design choices.

IMO, all things lead to the EX unless your goal is to get the very last articulate detail from a music standpoint...

Hah call me crazy. Well I'm getting PMs too that pull me both ways. I'm not a bass head. I like clean & detail sound. Who's to say I move into a new place in 6 months that's small and has lame neighbors?

I've Been told by reputable sources that the detail is mainly noticable in movies. It reveals sounds listener wouldn't hear from a non servo design.

If there's a difference in detail between the two subs, it will be very tiny, something you would never notice unless you had both subs in the same room playing the same material side by side. The added output of the Outlaw will be much more noticeable imo. Even if you move into a smaller space, it never hurts to have more headroom. (plus the Outlaw looks way cooler with it's plexiglass top lol) Anyway, it seems like you should have all the information you need to make a decision at this point. Good luck with whatever you decide.

^^^This.

Here's the way I see it anyway:
  • The EX will have noticeably more output
  • The EX will extend lower. IMO, that extension is a significant factor for movies
  • Your room is very large, and the added output will make a big difference
  • Dual EXs down the road will be noticeably better than dual LVR12s
  • As Gmash said, you'll likely not be able to tell a difference unless side by side, or doing very critical listening
  • Folks that have owned both the EX and the rythmik have recommended the EX
  • Any benefits in sound quality for the Rythmik will get trumped by the extra output and extension for movies; e.g. if you compared the two subs with movie content down to 16hz or lower, IMO you'd far and away choose the EX over any difference (albeit slight) in sound quality.

I don't have a dog in this fight at all...and I said, am a big Rythmik fan. Many have been down this path before, and have spent lots of $$$ traveling the upgradeitus path (including me). This is what we've learned along the way.

If this was a music only setup, or strongly weighted towards it, I'd recommend the LVR12 all the way. However, the output and extension difference is very real and significant when it comes to movies.

Good luck on your decision.

No worries my man. Thanks for the heads up!
After learning so much from you guys (your efforts did not go in vain)...I man upped and plan On picking up The FV15HP this weekend. Do the job right the first time and ya won't have to Do it again.

My center channel and towers are huge so why not get a sub to help even the room out?

Think I finally figured out what AVR I'm getting (think the denon x1000 or x2000 - best bang for buck with SUB EQ) for now until Atmos gets it's feet wet and Rich gets some commission!

Surround speaker shopping this week and I'll be complete... for now...

Don't you mean only the X400 has Audyssey's Sub EQ, but the others he is considering do EQ the sub.

Yes I meant multEQ XT which includes The sub in it's calibration. Not actual sub EQ software. Sorry.

I knew you knew what you were talking about. I was afraid JT78681's post might mislead you
