Ok, first let me say that I am a total audio/video newb. This is my first true HT. I have never had a dedicated receiver, speakers, or subs - ever. So I am looking for a bit of an education as well as recommendations. I like my Def-Techs. Each tower has a 300 watt amp with a 10 inch sub and a pair of 10 inch bass radiators. The center speaker has a 150 watt amp and an 8 inch sub. I know these subs are ridiculously small for my room. But I wanted to mention them in case there are concerns with matching up to a dedicated sub or subs.
Ok, I have been reading all of your great posts, and have learned quite a bit, especially from Jim Wilson. And I like what I have read on the most popular subs recommended on this site (Rythmik LV12R, PSA XV15, SVS PB 1000 and Outlaw LFM-1 EX). But I am looking for advice on what to buy for my particular set-up. My concerns are to match up with my listening material, size properly for my room, accounting for the 10' opening to the rest of the basement, and match up with my equipment, including the subs included in my speakers.
I am very easily impressed. I know any of the subs on this forum will blow me away. But I don't want to overspend on subs that produce sounds I will not appreciate. What I want is to "feel" the rumble of movies and be more fully immersed in my music.
If I failed to provide any pertinent information, please ask. Thanks for your input.
