SB1000/PB1000/SB12/LV12R

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
In the market for a new sub. The ones in the title are the ones I've narrowed it down to (all under $600). I'd say I'm looking for a more precise sub than one with more oomph to it. Running Polk RTIs if that makes a difference.

A little more info would be useful. cool.gif Off the top of my head I would go for the LVR though.

I'd go with the SB12-NSD myself with the LV12R a very close 2nd.

SB12 for me, I bought my mother an lv12r and was not impressed {almost returned it but she wouldn't let me since she said it was fine, I a b compared it to a vtf2 and the vtf2 was all around better}, I prefer the vtf2 over the rythmik for a couple dollars more...  I own a pair of sb12's and love them, very tight, accurate and FAST...

 

 

the sb12's by themselves arent huge on output, the vtf2 will be a good balance between output and sq, IMO, you can run it sealed too...

I would go with the VTF2 or LV12. The sealed SVS subs don't have a lot of output, and there is no point in getting a PB12 when the VTF2 and LV12 would likely be flat out better.

I'm thinking neither would be "flat out" better. The PB is going to have a flatter response, is certainly built better than the VTF and likely built better than the LV too. Output will be similar, but I'd take a flat, good sounding response over a few dbs of output.

I meant to say PB1000, not PB12, my mistake. Yeah, I think a PB12 would be a lot more competitive with regards to performance.

I have to disagree, I heard the pb1000 and while its a decent sub, the vtf2 gets my vote the pb is a 10" driver and I noticed port noise, still a very nice $500 sub but for an additional $100 the vtf2 is much better.

You should read Jim Wilsons review on the PB1000 and LV12.
