Some good options in your list of choices. Is it going in the same room as your 800 series B&Ws or a different room? If it were me I'd probably pick the Paradigm Sub 1. It has a good room correction built in and lots of output in a reasonably sized package. No bad choices in your list so it's win-win.

1. budget.- $150

3. Room dimensions. 15 x 18. It's a living room in a townhouse and the "theater" is in one end.

4. Primary uses - TV and Movies,

5. Listening habits.- Normal Viewing. Loud enough to get a rumble.

6. Appearance requirements. None

7. Timeframe. None

I have looked a bit and have a few in mind but would be welcome to more suggestions (Or just a recommendation of the ones I've looked at.
BIC V-80, Dayton Sub-1200, Polk PSW110.

Thanks!
I'm not sure why the 8-inch BIC is on your list since one can get the V1220 with a 12-inch driver for around your budget (a sub I do own). Out of those listed, the Dayton SUB-1200 might be your best bet. Not familiar with the 10-inch Polk.

Looking for advice on what sub to purchase.

Budget: $800-1500
Size requirement: none
Room size: 14x20x9, but since it is bonus room above garage, the ceiling is sloped on both sides. Approx cu ft is 2400.
Primary use: dedicated home theater room. Mostly movies. Some music from paladia music channel, but I am most interested in a loud tight theater.
Listening habits: reference level if it is a good action flick. Usually loud.
Appearance: none
Time: none

I use my room wide instead of long. The only place I get a decent bass response on both sides of couch (main listening area) is for the sub to be placed directly behind couch. I can close off my room completely. I feel I am missing some lower end slam with current sub (pa120) and time for upgrade. I've been considering an svs pb2000, 2x pb2000, hsu vtf15, psa15, psa30, rythmic fv15hp. I want bone shaking, chest slamming feel in my room. Any suggestions?

Here's my current gear:
Pani 65 vt30
Onkyo 818 with aud xt32 (but no sub eq)
PSB image t6 front and matching center
Surrounds are nht subzeros
15 homemade 2'x2'x2" acoustic panels in room (no bass traps)
Sub: Pa120

True. SMS-1 is probably no longer available. But I guess second hand.

Which is better SVS EQ1 or antimode? I believe the EQ1 can be configured from a computer, you can see response and corrections?
