+1 this. However, as good as your subwoofers are, speakers like the Reactions will far exceed them in terms of dynamic range. I would go for the Reaction and JBL surround setup with plans of...

I would be looking at the Reaction Audio pS15x, it only costs 100 more than the SB2000 but is far more powerful. It's a bit larger but not a huge sub like these ported monsters.

Basshead, none of the people whose CEA data that PSA is using for their charts would agree with the way PSA is using their data. Beside PSA, the only data used in those charts were created by Hsu...

I thought the matter is worth mentioning since it does involve both of the subwoofers discussed in this thread. As for nobody but me caring, don't you think you should care enough to at least mention...

Joe, there is a level of dishonesty in the way PSA sells their subs. Their comparison charts are rubbish and always have been. It's bad enough that the charts misuse CEA data, but now they will not...

I noticed that Power Sound Audio still has their comparison charts up on their product pages which (inappropriately and erroneously) use the VTF15h and VTF3 CEA numbers for output comparison, but...

The top $1k sub at the moment (in my opinion) is the Hsu VTF15h mk2 (http://www.hsuresearch.com/products/vtf-15hmk2.html). I don't think I would even bother running a PB12 NSD with it. The PB12 NSD...

If you want to do movies justice, just get a sub that can do 20 Hz and above. There is content below 20 Hz, but it becomes very expensive to go after. If you want you sub to mimic a drum, like a live...

Infinity Primus is great for the price, crazy good when on sale. Right now Amazon has the p363 for $99, that is the best bang for the buck at the moment. I would also be looking at Hsu's speakers,...

With respect to performance, they are mostly the same above 20 Hz, with a tiny edge going to the VTF15h mk2. At 16 to 20 Hz, the VTF15h mk2 does have a somewhat more substantial advantage, mostly at...

I have yet to hear a system that equals the force of real life experiences. I wouldn't be surprised if a good audio system can replicate light weapons SPL, like 9 mm and .22s, but a shotgun blast, no...

Of course, but what I am talking about is the character of the sound, and also its relative loudness. Most games pump up the bass too much in trying to recreate the sound of existing guns, and they...

Hsu's own measurements tell a somewhat different story. Their differences show a 2.7 dB increase at 20 hz in one port mode from the mk1 to the mk2, although only a .7 dB increase in 2 ports open...

That is roughly correct, but I think a closer comparison is by using Hsu's own numbers. The number at the end of the review only compares 40 Hz scores. Hsu's own measurements has numbers for 16 to 80...

3 Klipsch RB-81s
4 JBL 8320 for surrounds

The Reaction sub is essentially a $1k, so I am not saying the VTF3 mk5 is better, I am saying it will dominate subs priced under $1k. I think the Reaction sub could potentially meet its match in the...
