MiniMe-ff8 vs. supercube 4000 vs velodyne minivee 8

like the post states. due to extreme room constraints i am looking for the best i can get. i currently have pioneer vsx-60 with monitor audio silver 8 for towers and matching center channel. ideally i would like the sub to match the gloss black of the towers. room size is about 22 x22 with 10 foot ceiling. as you guys can tell all of these woofers cost about the same so you guys know my budget, if there are ant other woofers you guys recommend please feel free. thank you






on a side note i am replacing an earthquake couch potato

Let's see, you have a 4,800 plus cu. ft. volume (hopefully sealed off from other rooms), and you want a tiny 8-inch sub to have an impact, right? All I can say is those won't do it for you. I doubt the small SB13-Ultra @ $1600 could pull that off, but it would stand a far better chance. I simply don't know what else to say that would help you. Sorry, but I do wish you the best in your search.

The following is a small list of subwoofers that have a chance of filling that room. Each company has many other subs that you can look at, but I suggest you take a look at what is realistic and what isn't for your room volume. You'll find the sizes, weights, finishes and price at each of these websites, so spend some time and explore each site.

Piano Black Finish:

SVS SB13-Ultra: http://www.svsound.com/subwoofers/se...a#.U-0wGygbR0c
SVS PB13-Ultra: http://www.svsound.com/subwoofers/po...a#.U-0waCgbR0c
Rythmik FV15HP: http://www.rythmikaudio.com/FV15HP.html

The following do not come in Piano Black Finish:

Reaction Audio PS 215X: http://reaction-audio.myshopify.com/...ered-subwoofer
PSA XS30se: http://www.powersoundaudio.com/products/xs30se

We are actually putting the finishing touches on our first Piano Black finish 215x.
It will soon be added to the website as a finish option.

We will try to get it added to the site within a week or so.
It will be an up charge from satin black.
We can also do satin white too for no up-charge.

Until it's on the site, folks can email us or give us a call for pricing.

Lead times on the custom finish options will be a week or two extra.

Why not sell your towers and get quality bookshelf and have subs as stands. Would sound better then big mains and tiny subs.

Nope. You need at least two 4cuft subs to do it. Pm me if you want more info about diy subs.

2386erick: Chalugadp is part of a rare but growing crowd here, a real extreme basshead. I'm sure his setup would put most very good theaters to shame! He is also very knowledgeable, and going the DIY route will provide you with massive bass at a much lower cost, provided you are into building your own. You can receive a lot of help from him and the others in the DIY thread.

As far as two … er … regular subwoofers are concerned, it depends. Two of any sub won't provide you with any deeper bass. What they will provide is around 3 - 6 dB of extra output or headroom. Two will also help smooth out room modes at the listening position if you find out you have a problem with one sub. But two subs are trickier to set up than one sub, so it's not like one can just get another sub and your room mode problems magically disappear.

If you are up to the challenge, it is the way to go. Plus, there is an inherent feeling of pride and accomplishment that one has when they create something that not only works, but works wonderfully and impressively. Now would I do it? Naw, I'm lazy. But if my son's sub ever goes out, he will absolutely go the DIY route.

chalugadp: LOL. Gee, only 110 dBs!!!! And I thought 90 dBs were way too loud.

Id like to recommend aperion audio for piano black and small size. I just sold mine and shipped it today matter of fact, but I have nothing but good things to say about their bravus 12d. Your wife would probably love a pair of these. If you have the cash, one or two lms 5400 sub's in a sealed is the most bass inch for inch you can get.
