I am loosing my mind I think... I can't get any of the SVS subs I have tried to sound the way I like... my mains sound really good but just need that low end punch in the chest I love when I crank it.. the SB12 (sealed) was the closest in some situations and the PC12 (cylinder) comes through in other situations.. but the damn polk works in both, goes low, has punch and has a nice small footprint. I know these other subs are higher end equipment but maybe it's the room harmonics... I dunno. Maybe what I need is a ported front firing sub, but the SVS options in this arena are HUGE and I have kind of a small spot for the sub. The PC12 sounded best corner loaded but that made for some awkward placement of chairs in the room.. the polk sounds great right in the spot I have carved out for a sub... gah!
well... I need to take a break from moving subs all over and just chill for a bit... maybe try again next week or something.
