I have a handful of "go to" scenes I use to see where the limitations of my subs are. I'll give you five. 1. Opening scene of Edge of Tomorrow. 2. Grenade (second grenade) in WWZ. The helicopter...

The server scene in Pulse is a go to. Darla tapping on the aquarium in Finding Nemo is pretty darn cool with a good sub. The detonator "fire in the hole" explosion in Hurt Locker will make you think...

Oh man! I didn't see the latest. I thought he was set with the S1500. He opened up a can of worms now. :D I hope if he's married he informs the wife what is going on. Both of those charges will hit...

The S1500 will do great in his small room. He's already ordered it and it's on the way. No need for further debate. Case closed.:cool:

You are wrong yet again. Shipping rates vary quite a bit depending on the distance. Example being this sub shipped w/sig and $400 declared value is $54.12 to Dallas TX, which is close to my location....

Reaction Audio S-15 subwoofer. SW Missouri.

Would take $400 for this. Shipping might not be practical due to size/weight. If shipped, buyer would be responsible for paying the cost.

This was a B-stock sub bought from Reaction Audio earlier...

If you go by the preliminary CEA 2010 numbers, the Gamma 18 is nearly the same as the PSA XS30se. From 16-25Hz they are .1dB apart. From 31.5-50Hz they are also .1dB apart. XS30se is .7dB more from...

A knocking sound when the sub is being pushed hard could be from bottoming out. Odd that you would have that happen with their PB13 Ultra, since SVS subs have a limiter in the amp to prevent that. I...

With that large of a space to fill you will need multiple large, ported subs. I would invest more money in subs over speakers. If your budget is 1K for speakers and sub(s), you aren't even going to...

You can't go wrong with PSA. Great subs, warranty and 30 day free audition period. I really like their textured cabinet finish. I have their XS30 and have thoroughly enjoyed it. ;)

That sounds like a plan, but yes, lead time on the Reaction sub might be a while. PSA also makes great subs. I think the XS15se would be worth an audition, as well.

Glad to hear you are happy with the V-1220. It's a great little sub and is a little better for home theater than the similar Bic F12. I have always preferred down-firing over front-firing and...

Go big! For size comparison, the 12" SVS PB-2000 is 20.9"H x 17.3"W x 23.2"D. Gamma 18 is 23"H x 20.5"W x 22"D

No such thing as too big, dude. You sound like somebody's wife with that comment. :p It's a sealed sub, so it's not nearly as big as comparable ported 18" subs. Heck, the Gamma 18 is smaller than the...

Two subs will give you up to a 6dB gain in output and smooth out the frequency response, but that applies more so to rooms larger than yours with multiple seating locations. In a room as small as...

For a closed off 3000 ft^3 room you could probably go either ported or sealed. I have a 2700 ft^3 room that is closed off and sealed subs perform very well. Dual PB-1000's will run you $950, but if...

STF-2 is a ported sub and only rated down to 25Hz. I wouldn't go that route at all. Now I do agree that you could get away with a lesser sub than the Gamma 18, say the Gamma 15, but if you have...

Small bedroom I would go sealed sub for sure. RA Gamma 18 would be unreal in that small of a bedroom and right at your $1000 budget. Seems like a no brainer.:cool:

Two PB1000's would most likely be in order. You could order a PB1000 and a PB2000 and compare them head to head, then send the one back. All depends on your max budget. Once you get up to around $800...
