I never want my bass to drown out everything else.

To the above poster. If it is under warranty I would be getting a replacement amp.

Now for my questions. I have a 2700 cubic foot dedicated home theater. Bass traps in all corners. Bass traps in my columns, and also in my soffits, all the way around. I have optimal dimensions so to have the least amount of standing waves I want a sub that has nice tight bass for music. But I also want great impact for movies.

I am leaning towards the sb13ultra. But thinking I might need two for impact with movies though. And don't want to splurge on the second.

So my question is has anybody compared all these sub's? And if so maybe give me some advice. I am open to all suggestions but remember I won't sacrifice music for movies.

Thank you in advance.

I had the SB13 for a while, and I can echo the comments above that it can be a, in comparison, a bit lacking for movies. That's nothing against the SB13, but its asking a lot for a relatively compact 13 inch sub to go against, for example, bigger 15 inch subs.

here's my little journey to find my current sub:Deep Sea Sounds Mariana 18 Review

I'll bump the gain closer to 12 o'clock. That probably will get my audyssey setting closer to -7 db on subwoofer. From there Should be able to safely bump the subwoofer to 0 db. I think my AVR will let me manually adjust to -12 db if I want to reduce the subwoofer. I typically like the audyssey settings for music though.
