SVS hands down


Any other thoughts on HSU, rhythmic, or Epik subwoofers?

You don't give him any reasons why. Your advice is terrible.

And you don't even give him a recommendation... Go away Troll.


And looking at the reputation of Polk audio subwoofers compared to SVS it's a no brainer. Also look at the specs the SVS I'd better. Happy troll?

crazyrob425 is always very generous with his time on helping others on AVS. If this is as helpful as you intend to be, perhaps you should be much less generous with your time.

The SVS hands down. SVS has deeper extension and will have more output across the same freq range. SVS also makes some of the best quality drivers in a commercial subwoofer offerings. Customer service is top notch and their products are almost bullet proof, they can take a beating and keep on going.

I'm a huge SVS fan but also take a lot at the HSU VTF 15H, Epik Empire, Rythmik FV15.

Troll? Suck it pal. The least you could have done is support your facts. I always read of people instantly saying to go with something but don't offer the facts or argument to back that up.

Edit: And FWIW, I would probably suggest the SVS product based on the fact that the MicroPro is a passive sealed design. Great for music! If space is an issue, definitely the MicroPro.

There is really no comparison in terms of output, extension, and distortion, the SVS will easily trounce the way smaller Polk in every conceivable benchmark. I would only use that Polk in a small-medium room with music content, whereas the SVS will provide extremely deep bass in a medium to large room

No offense but at least he recommended something unlike you at the start :/

I've had the PB12-Plus for almost 2 months and it is incredible as far as what it adds to our movie experience.

Those are rather different designs, what size room are you looking at using these in and how much space are you willing to allocate towards a sub? If you have a small room and space is at a premium, a SVS ported box may just take up too much room. If that is the case, I'd look at other small sealed designs such as the SVS SB13-Plus or the HSU ULS-15.

If, on the other hand, you have the space to give and are looking for maximum output, of the two you offered, then the SVS is going to have much more extension, output, and comes with a great warranty/service package. I'd give the nod to the SVS.

What opinion can I give for items I've not heard? I can only state based on what I read which is what I contributed.

At full blown retail, the Polk is not a good value. However, since it is discontinued, if you can get one for around $600 as some on here have, it wouldn't be a bad sub to own at that price point. It does come with a few advanced features such as room equalizer.

Do you own one or two of them?

The PB12-plus is a great all around performer with both music and movies. It does seem like the SVS and Polks subs mentioned is an odd comparison

Indeed. Wouldn't be a fair fight whatsoever.

There is a big different in size. In my room I'm very happy with the Polk. I'm also very happy with my ae av15h pr + ipr3000dsp sub. I have heard the vtf15 and it's good too. The finish on the Polk is the best and smallest but I only paid 700 new.

I've come accross an opportunity to get a pre-owned Polk DSW Micropro 4000 in the low $400's. Have not been able to find any reviews. Does anyone have experience/auditioned this subwoffer... I am also considering the HSU VTF-15. How does it compare to the latter or to the SVS...? , taking into consideration the asking price........Appreciate any feedback..
post #22 of 22
I like Polk speakers but thier subs wont hold a candle to the HSU or SVS line....not saying the Micro Pro 4000 is bad, for 400.00 it is a good buy.
