It would help if we knew what your room size (volume), and if it is closed off or open to other rooms. I haven’t auditioned any of the 3 subs you mentioned (I do own a BIC V1220 and use to own the...

I’m in a bit of a quandary concerning my PSA sub. I was thinking about auditioning the S3000i, but I don’t think it will integrate well with my XS30. If I update my XS30 with “se” drivers and the...

A much fairer comparison indeed, for movies. I still think the SB13-Ultra will give either PSA sub a run for its money with music :). For movies, the S1500 is a much better value than the $1600...

That's a mammoth room (equal to two extreme rooms). I suggest getting two subs. Is that possible on your budget? Yes. Look at the Premier Acoustics PA-150. It has surprisingly high output above...

I think starting with a 3.1 system first is wise. Look for the best subwoofer you can afford.

I only heard the Hsu in a 3.1 and 5.1 configuration, so I couldn’t tell you if the Hsu has a small sweet spot via its phantom center. A lot of speakers do, but once you add the center channel, it...

First, I do not understand why you think you need a different subwoofer depending upon the speakers you choose. Any of those subs would be a great asset to any speaker system.

The SB13-Ultra is a strange little beast and never quite gets the accolades it deserves. All one has to do is go to data-bass and you’ll see a slew of subs outperforming the Ultra in output tests. ...

Did you by any chance change a couple of speakers for this room. It was a year or so ago that I noticed your wonderful room filled with MLs. I just didn't remember seeing those big ML models.
