I need help deciding on a sub for a large, 20x20 room with 12 foot vaulted ceilings.
Here are some specifics...
- 50 / 50 split for music vs movies
- $1700 budget
- Smaller is better
My wife has barely consented to getting a sub in the room, but with conditions. Specifically, it can't be huge (which I know is relative). We've been to some home theater stores and she likes the looks of the B&W PV1D. However, I'm concerned that dual 8' won't come close to being adequate for such a large room - plus I haven't been able to find many reviews on the PV1D.
As much as I would love a huge HSU or SVS ported sub, there's just no way she'll let me put in something the size of an end table. I'm looking at the SVS SB13-Ultra, and even that's going to be a tough sell at 17x17x17.
Any thoughts on PV1D vs SB13? She's already agreed on the PV1D so I can easily go that direction. Just wondering if I should really be trying for the SB13 - or something else (suggestions welcome!!). I'm guessing the SB12 would be too small for 20x20 room...
Any input is greatly appreciated!!
