OP, if you live near tezster - and assuming that he's asking a reasonable price ;) - you should grab that S10.3. IMO and IME it's a truly impressive little sub!

A PB-1000 would do a decent job in there, IMO. Unfortunately, while it's $499 in the U.S., the current exchange rate (the CDN is ~79ยข to the USD) means it's quite a bit more expensive up here. And...

Yes, a sub will have better output and extension below 80Hz than will the 10" woofers in your speakers.


No, not a $300 sub (unless that's a well-discounted sale price).


It's a...

+1. I listen at -18dB to -14dB and DEQ adds a nice amount of boost to the bottom end.

A subwoofer cable - that is, a cable with RCA connections at either end. Something like this (http://www.monoprice.com/Product?c_id=102&cp_id=10236&cs_id=1023603&p_id=6305&seq=1&format=2).

If the room were a bit smaller, I'd go with the SB13-Ultra. In your case, I'd go with Rythmik's FV15HP: Extremely well-rated, servo control, high output, excellent extension. It should give you...

Well, this explains the disappearance of HT gear from the Chane website. I wonder what happened to cause the "match made in heaven" Chase-Lane relationship to sour.

+1 to shadyJ's comments and recommendations. The PW-2200 was a pretty solid sub in its day, but if you're going to buy a $2K sub (or two $1K subs), you're probably better off running it / them on...

IMO, start at ~100Hz, try a few settings a bit higher (120/130/140/150) and go with the one that sounds best overall to you.


(I don't think you'd need to go higher than ~120Hz.)

Is it possible that YPAO defaults all speakers to "large" and you need to set them back to "small" with a crossover setting (or crossover settings) appropriate to the speakers you're using?

That's not a large space, but it's not all that small either. IMO, you'd want at least one SVS PB-1000 in there. (Certainly no less than a pair of SUB-1200.)

No, nothing new. On their own, they're good, but not as great as I'd hoped. Together with my SS-18s, I'm in a "happy place" for now. At some point, I may try DIY-ing (or AIY-ing) a couple of...

I would go with a sub other than the DSP-3200 and add a miniDSP - with either an OmniMic or REW + a UMIK-1 - to deal with any additional EQ-ing that may be required.
