Room is roughly 22 wide 15 deep 8 foot ceilings. Looking for cleaner bass, and some more SPL for movies. But I'm leankng twords sealed since I'm mostly a music guy but would like some chest pounding from time to time during movies. Thoughts on what I'll notice from switching and any other options? Budget 1300 max.
I'm using PC-12 NSD's. So, this isn't quite the answer your looking for. 1.5 years ago, I bought a PC12-NSD for my media room (15'x16'x9'=2160 sq. ft.). This speaker was the first real sub that I've ever had and was very pleased with the overall quality. But, physically, I couldn't quite find the right spot for it (in my somewhat cramped room) to eliminate nulls/peaks in the response. I started reading audio theory (first to admit I'm far from an expert on the subject) and came to the conclusion that multiple subs were the answer. Referring back to my limited floor area, two subs are the most I could put in. After rationalizing the cost to myself, I put down the money for another PC12-NSD. Got it a few weeks ago. It took about three hours of work (opening cabinets, re-wiring, Audessy setup/SPL measurements) to get going. But, I am very happy with the result. Of course, no room will have a perfect response without sound treatments (and I'm not going to do that). But, my response curves are VERY good now. Plus, with two subs, I have a TON of headroom to play with, if I so desire (grin). So, I guess the message of this post is that multiple subs really do help a room. And, as other people have already noted, the folks at SVS really are helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. As earlier mentioned, the quality of their subs is superb. I highly recommend them.
