On the off chance that you can add $38 to your budget max, I'll mention that the HSU VTF-15H MK2 is currently selling for $1,038, shipped. :)

I did that with my OmniMic: One sub at/on the MLP, the mic at roughly "half-subwoofer height" off the floor. It seemed to work just fine. :)

A pair of PB-1000s will have plenty of output for a room that size, and cabin gain will help deliver solid sub-20Hz extension. With a pair of PB-2000s, you'd have more of each (output and...

It depends on what constitutes "strong enough". IMO, a pair of PB-1000s will work well in that space - delivering good output and solid extension to 20Hz - but if you're looking for seat-shaking,...

The 10S looks like a good option, and I recall reading some very positive comments about it. The sub - which presumably has a built-in wireless receiver - costs $399. The wirelesss transmitter that...

I would say that music can sound different with Audyssey vs. without it. I wouldn't say that Audyssey "ruins" music.

IMO and YMMV. :)

If the F-12s are very "peaky" subs, you may find mid-bass a bit lacking with a single PB-2000 due to its flatter FR curve. That said, the PB-2000 will have more overall output and significantly...

I agree. That's why I think you'll benefit from saving up and getting something better that will dig deeper and hit harder than your current sub (or a comparable replacement). :cool:

I'd start with reading the manual, which will probably tell you to max out the LPF (low-pass filter, or "crossover") on the sub and set the gain to about 1/2 (or "noon"). Then you run YPAO, then you...
