Since room volume is crucial in determining the size and type of subwoofer that would be needed, I cannot help you. I do wish you well on your search.

In order to recommend a subwoofer, I'd need to know the size of your room (volume) and if it is open to other rooms. If so, what are those room volumes? It would also be nice if I knew what you are...

The more I look at the VTF-3 Mk5 HP the more I like it. The VTF-15H Mk2 is Hsu's flagship subwoofer at a great price. Yet, the VTF-3 Mk5 is virtually identical in Hsu 2-meter test spec from 25 Hz...

I've owned the 901s and would never attempt a surround application. It might be that the best chance at surround sound would be a 4.1 system. Since the 901s give you a whole wall of sound, adding...

Congratulations on your choice! I know it is never an easy choice to make, since both give high quality sound. I hope the R55Ti is everything you're looking for.

As fatbottom said, and I fully agree, go with one sub first. It could very well be that you'd be happy with one sub and that will save you a lot of money. You must find the best spot in the room...

You have a 12 foot screen in your bedroom :eek:? Since you didn't mention your room size, I will assume that it is small enough so you are thrilled with the SVS PB-2000 and you are only looking to...

Not familiar with BeNeLux.

It looks like LSound is all SVS. The only other sub I saw was the Kreisel DXD-12012 (a fine subwoofer, but ridiculously priced). REL is also ridiculously priced. Not...

No problem, and I agree with your statement 100 percent of crossing these @ 80 Hz. Since the R5Bi's are ported, they will have a steep rolloff, and perhaps that is why I liked the bass as much as I...

Congratulations! I hope this provides you with what you are looking for. As fatbottom indicated, the SB-1000 (a fine sub) is for rooms under 1,500 cu. ft., and the smaller the room, the better the...

Don't worry about meters. We can easily transfer them to feet. From your description, your room is on the borderline of large and extreme (4,856 cu. ft. or 137.5 cu. meters). This means a large,...

Before deciding that all is lost and this sub just doesn't do it for you, walk around the room and find where you hear the best bass and listen to it there. Yeah, it sounds weird to listen to a sub...

I couldn't find a review on the JBL and not that much on the Velodyne. Neither company appears too forthright with their frequency specifications. Neither of these ported subs give a +/-3 dB rating...
