For me AVR's are the last thing I would upgrade. Some subs have on-board EQ's that could help with the problem. Subs like the new ELAC subs will become more common (Full EQ control with your phone)....

Is there a reason the SVS is much lighter? Also, does it have the best overall warranty? Do all have a built-in rumble HPF to protect the sub from over-excursion?
