The only problem is being so inexperienced, I don't know what I want exactly. But I have a feeling that I will be itching to try multiple subs eventually. That is why, if I go too expensive for single sub, it is gonna cost a fortune to get duals.
It doesn't end and if you go on the cheap, you'll hate what you get. There is no exit door as there are only windows with a door and on the other side of each window is a little clown, complete with red rubber nose and muti-colored hair, holding a sign that reads....."You Lose!" Honk, honk.
The only proper response, is to give into the reality of the force and for it, you'll be glad you did.
Just so you know, I've spent a $1,000.00 over the last six months, working with subs, replacement drivers, measuring programs and EQ's (exploring the issue) so as to simply buy a clue......and nothing more. What I'm sharing is based on the experience of this lab work. Here's what I found:
1. Four subs is better than three subs and don't even think of settling on two subs as the room doesn't come alive until the addition of the third subwoofer..
2. Budgets should at minimum, represent three (maybe even four) times what one considers to be a rational budget.
1. If one can budget for only one sub at a time, so be it and when budgeting, budget for one "QUALITY" sub, and nothing less. Later, when the next tax return comes in, buy a second with the eye on a third or forth sub. And in the meantime, don't forget to download a freeware copy of REW, buy a measuring microphone and see what's what with what regarding you and your subwoofer sound reproduction system.
3. If the WAF is a powerful force indeed, then in counterance, man should invoke the force of whine, sigh and moping until out of love, the WAF capitulates. It's about getting what you want, powerful subwoofer sound. She can have the purses, walk-in closet and shoes......I want the sound.
4. Always go with the best one can afford and if necessary, a bit more.Jon Bon-Jovi...."It's My Life."
In my opinion, forgive me for my pushiness, of what's been discusses, the SVS, SB-12 NSD will much better serve you and your stated budget than a F-12. Not knowing where your next listening room is going be, I can't say what direction to go in so as to buy and compliment the best sub for your next listening position.
In the end think the Eagles and "Hotel California."
and make a choice, what's your poison going be as subwoofer sound is healthy for a man's soul.
(from here, I'm repeating myself)
