Looked at the Seatons. Wow, I fainted. It's way out of my league. My max reach would be the SVS PB-1000. But thanks for suggestion.

Thing is, with Submersives they will be the last subs you ever buy. So while they are expensive up front, over time and money saved on upgraditis, they might actually work out cheaper in the long run. Well, that's how I justified it to myself anyway LOL.

May be I was pushing the sub way too hard??
Thanks everyone for the help.

Good news that your sub appears to be undamaged and that the tweak you made helps. It does sound as if you were simply pushing it too hard, and you may be in good shape again, at least for a while. You mentioned SVS. They make very good subs; not in the Submersive class, but I believe still an excellent value overall. I think as a longer term strategy, it might be worthwhile looking at an upgrade to get lower/louder bass. If you do, also take a look at some of the SVS cylinders: the PC12-NSD or the Plus. You can sometimes find very good deals on used ones as people either trade up or move to smaller places where they can't use them anymore.

I believe I remember seeing you over on the Atmos thread. If so, you probably really enjoy the movie experience, and getting more/better bass might be an important aspect of that. Going from your current 300 watt sub to even a single Submersive (much less a pair) would be like going from a Pinto to a Ferrari. But the advice to consider an upgrade may still be perfectly valid. You may just need to approach it a little more gradually. I hope you don't mind me weighing in on this.

Regards,
Mike
