Is it just me, or does that sub bear a striking resemblance to the Lava LSP12? One things for sure, I hope the frequency response is a typo; 30 ~ 150 Hz, -10dB. That's awful for a $250 bass reflex...

The RSL 5.1 system would have no problems filling that space with wonderful sound. When I reviewed that system it was in a 13x17x8 room, and it didn't struggle in the least.

I'm afraid you can't go by driver size either, at least not taken in isolation like that. The SVS SB-1000 and PC12-Plus both have a 12" driver, yet the differences between them will be vast.

It almost sounds like you were over-driving the F12, which could account for the difference you're hearing. If Audessey set the sub output to -12dB it means the gain was too high and that it was...

While the SB-2000 is probably a very nice subwoofer, 3000 ft^3 is an awful lot of space for it to fill. My guess is it may not be up to the task. You should either consider getting a pair of them...

If you're looking to upgrade you should consider going a less budget route. More than likely the NXG will be similar rather than dissimilar to the Klipsch, so if you want something better I don't...

IIRC the midranges in the RC Micro speakers are about 3". If so you'll need a subwoofer that can play cleanly (key word) up to at least 150Hz, which few budget subs are capable of. It might be...

Amen to that. I actually prefer 60Hz myself - for some reason it just sounds better to my ears - so whenever possible I try to get speakers capable of playing that low.

+1

80% of the soundtrack comes from the LCR cumulatively, not from the center by itself.

If you're going to place a sub in an enclosed space getting one with a rear port is not advisable. You stand to lose some of the ports output due to the physical constraints, which ultimately...

Given your circumstances the Dayton SUB-1200 might be a better option. It's relatively small, fits your price target with room to spare and can hold its own when it comes to HT.

What size is your room (HxWxD)? A 10" sub might be desirable from a visual perspective but maybe not so good from an aural one.

Wait until you have some time to spend with the e112, you'll find it gets even better. And my review consisted of just a single unit, so I can only imagine how much fun you'll have with duals.
