I personally didn't consider the SVS because for my price range I would rather have a 15 inch sub verses 12 inch one.
I received my FV15 Friday, and Eldiablos, it matches the black oak PERFECTLY! The grain on my Paradigm PS1200 was going opposite of my Paradigm Monitor 9's! The grain on the FV15 goes in the same direction. Haven't really pushed the sub, yet...but today I will!
Mantaraydesign, is that your total space or is your listening area a smaller space. Read and watch the Shootout, I did many, many times before I decided on the FV15. Call and talk to Brian or e-mail them with any questions.
