Large room, but we typically use it for dialogue centered movies (with soundtrack). Not terribly interested in feeling subwoofer, but like rich sound. Fronts are bookshelf b/c we only have room for speakers with 11.5" total height. What would the best use of money be (Figure max $200.) New fronts, move the 30's to the back or new sub? I wouldn't want a sub with a bigger total width than 12"
Thanks so much
Save up some more money. You're not going to get any meaningful or even noticeable improvement for $200 unless you get one of the "better" $200 subs like the Bic F-12, or Polk 505 or Energy 10.3 or similar.
And if those won't fit, well, again keep saving until you can purchase something that will make a difference.
