BTW, I might steal your avatar; Sabbath is my all time favorite band!

+1

Once you find something that tics all the boxes settling for plan B lends itself to buyers remorse. If my budget were a grand that $1200 would prove awfully tempting.

With few exceptions, very inexpensive subwoofers aren't worth fixing. Assuming you could eve find a replacement amp it's likely it would cost as much, if not more, than you originally paid for the...

Often the amplifier will just give up the ghost, but not always. If you have a bad capacitor, for example, the circuit may very well continue to work, but with unexpected results. No matter how you...

I can help you thin down the choices; skip the V-80 and PSW10 for a HT application. Neither of them are really able to provide enough output or depth in that context. If you scan back over the past...

It's possible you've answered your own question with that assessment of the Onkyo. Any weak link in your signal chain will drag everything else down, so it's conceivable the AVR is causing the...

A club will have about 50 times the output potential of one tiny subwoofer like the E112, so comparing the two is never going to work. If you buy about 49 more of those subs you can probably match a...

If the noise was truly due to a mechanical issue - like the VC making contact with something - that problem would survive a 3 second shutdown, so my guess is the amp is starting to wave goodbye.

Don't do it; the F12 would be overwhelmed by that volume of space. The L22 for E15HP stand a much better chance of working in an area that large.

Don't encourage him! He posts 47 times a day when he is at work, so I can only imagine how many it will be now that he has a day off and a new sub. :p

I encourage everyone to put their assessment into a post, however elaborate or simply that might be. The more first-hand experience appears in this thread the better it becomes.

If you have freedom of placement, and can put subwoofers where they will perform the best, I'd say go with a pair of S1's. While you may not have many seats to worry about, it's always a good idea...
