I found a great deal on a 5 piece set of Energy Veritas Mini, 4 Bookshelf + 1 Center speaker. They roll off around 100hz, so ill need a sub. Right now i live in an apt style condo so having the biggest speakers arent the most important thing (i can always sell the veritas later and make my money back) but i was wondering, in terms of future proofing - can i add an SVS PB-1000 (or even 2000) and pair it with the Vertias Mini's?

I dont want to get a mediocre sub woofer if i have to replace it once i get a "Home" Home Theater later.

Thoughts?

That sub will work well, it is flat to about 200Hz, so no problems playing up to the Veritas. You may want to consider the SB-2000, it is inbetween the PB-1000 and PB-2000 in terms of cost, but beats the 1000 in output, and would work well in an apartment if space is a concern.

I think my main concern was, if the SVS is "too much subwoofer" for the Vertias Mini. I wont have the sub and overall volume too loud for courtesy reasons, but i was wondering if the SVS would just overpower the speakers and just seem off in a way.

This is for movies mostly as well, so the "bass that punches you in the chest" would be nice once i replace the minis somewhere down the line. Maybe add a 2nd SB-2000?

Your receiver will level match everything so it sounds right, but if you want that feeling, you need a capable sub.
