So right now my GF and I have the entire place to ourselves and could let her rip a bit.

And if my friend does end up moving in, he would likely be more forgiving than a random new neighbor.

well in that case let the explosions begin. you'll have to tweak the gain knob now and then but that's no big deal

If you can afford it, get the Rythmik. It'll have better SQ than the Klipsch, it has a better build quality, and you will get better service from Rythmik. When you get it set up properly with your system and watch some of these four to five star movies, you won't regret it: The New Master List of BASS in Movies with Frequency Charts. Many of us think our good subs are the best investment we made in our home audio setup.
+1 I agree completely. If he can afford it. I only mention the Klipsch because he started out at a total budget of $600 and is now buying a $550 sub.

No, Mr. Bond. I expect you to die!

The deed is done.


Total Cost:
5(well 6) Cambridge s30 speakers: $657
Denon AVR-1913: $280
Rythmik LV12R: $550
Total: $1487



So much for the $600 soft cap and the $1000 hard cap biggrin.gif

But now I have a nice little setup that should last awhile. While, it cost a bit more than I intended to spend when I started out, I think I will be pretty pleased with the results. Not to mention I'll have the benefit of having a piece of mind about things (I won't have that "if only I spent a little extra to get X" feeling).

I have been wanting to replace this old Kenwood HTIB setup I have had for 10ish years now. I can barely wait.

Nice, that set up would surely blow away your old Kenwood system. Once you get everything dialed in I would love to know what you think of everything, as I'm sure we all would.

Awesome! That'll be a nice setup. smile.gif

While you wait to get everything, check out this AVS guide on Audyssey. It will help you to better understand how to setup your system. Be sure to read about Dynamic Volume in the guide as that's what you will want to try for evening listening when you don't want the sub as loud.
