I think a pair of small sealed subs would be great, a pair of SB12-NSD are compact and would give an even articulate bass response in the room.

The point of dual non-colocated subs is not to increase the bass response, but rather to even it out spatially. Unless your friend sits in the same exact spot with the same exact body posture, dual subs will have a significant additional value.

I bought the 4520, but I would have certainly have thought about the x4000, if it were available when I bought mine. I also have been reading about the Onkyo TX-NR 5010 and what a beast it is.

I understand the potential enhancement to audio quality using two subs, but in a 10x12 room? You're talking about 8% of total floor space taken up by subs. Not everyone is a basshead, one decent and relatively compact subwoofer will work fine, especially for the non-audiophile who originally only wanted a 2.1 system. Just sayin', not challengin' smile.gif
Understood 'hawk. No worries at all.

Yeah, I struggled a bit with the idea of dual subs in that room, but thought your friend had a good healthy budget for a 5.(1) system and at $1900 shipped the duals are ~30% of the total $6500. I thought that was a reasonable split of budget.

Also, as others have pointed out, dual subs aren't necessarily about increased output. A second sub won't take the bass from satisfying to bonecrushing... just to more satisfying for more seats.

Again, is your friends room fully enclosed (sealed) or does it have openings to other areas of the house?

No, it's pretty much closed room with a window and a door. He is planning to cover that window with sound proof covering.

^ Thanks. You are well and truly covered for subwooferage then. wink.gif

If you're still uncomfortable with dual subs, you could go for a single Rythmik F12SE initially and see how well it sets up in the room. If you detect you're getting a hit and miss room response, then look to a second identical Rythmik. (You will likely miss out on the "10% off for duals" discount though.)
