on sale today at Fry's for $199. any opinions. i would be replacing a Polk 8", that sounds crappy. my room is about 12x15 with vaulted ceilings and is open to a downstairs foyer and stairs to the downstairs. paired with Def Tech Pro Cinema 80 system and Sony STR-DE895.

The VX10 produces enough punch for most rooms under 2000 cu ft. If your room volume is more then that, look for something with more output. How much is your budget?

If your buget is $500 I'd get a bigger sub like H100 or better yet Svs, Hsu or s12 . But if you don't want to spend to much the vx 1000 sound good to me for a small room. I have a vrp1000 pretty much the same and it will shake my windows and floor

If you can spend $500, get the SVS PB10.

The Mirage S12 is a great sub with lots of output and will work well in most rooms. If Vanns still has them, it's the best bang for the buck in that price range. The SVS PB10 at $429.00 is also a good choice but its size may be a bit overwhelming in a small room. You may also want to consider the smaller HSU STF 2 at $399.00 or for a bit more punch and tuning capability, the VTF2 MKII for $499.00.

I could be entirely wrong, but it I believe that no sub is too overwhelming for any room...unless you want it to be (by turning the gain up...).

Tis' all about headroom (IMO).
