Not only did Jim Wilson have a difficult time getting info from these guys, I can't find any "real" specs from them either. I even took a look at their owner's manual and the specs reminded me of...

Hi Basshead: As I stated, I don't know that much about the Polk or the Klipsch, just going on the data. And if the O.P. can get it for $400 instead of the $444 not including shipping (the cheapest...

The two subs you noted are too similar to give a preference to. And not hearing either of these subs, I don't have an opinion. All I know is your loft area is very large and requires a subwoofer...

My mistake. Sounds like a great deal and is certainly worth the audition. If it doesn't please you, then you can always send it back. I think both subs are very good choices, and many times the...

Are you saying you tried out a PSA sub and it failed like the SVS PB-1000? If so, you have the worst luck I've ever seen. Perhaps I should stop reading and responding to your posts for fear your...

Now that explains quite a bit, and why you are unhappy with the PB-1000. A faulty driver will indeed sound like rubbish.

Since you've done everything you could with the PB-1000 … and you sure...

From those mentioned, the SVS. For the NXG and BICs you'd use a "Y" splitter from the receiver (one line going to each sub).

^^ Running a cable from receiver's sub output port(s) to sub 1 input port(s). Daisy-chaining is when you then run a cable from sub 1 output port(s) to sub 2 input port(s).

^^ LOL! Ain't that the way it goes around here? I bet it was the best tripling (or close to tripling) of your budget that you could imagine. Congratulations on a terrific sub!

The FV15HP is a great sub. No one would ever say otherwise. I don't think Rythmik makes anything but great subs. However, at a price of around $1340 (black matt or black oak) and $1560 (piano...

The only overkill I see is your room volume of 4,000 cu. ft. (16x25x10) not including the kitchen. Actually, I suggest waiting until you get to the new house. While that particular sub is only...
