I am looking for a sub under $400 to replace my current Sony SA-WM40. Basically I am sick of how boomy and sloppy the sub gets at high volumes when watching movies and listening to music. And after watching The Matrix Revolutions, I pretty much decided that I need a new sub, as the Sony could not handle anything in that movie without sounding too boomy and loose! And after reading about how good it sounds when the machine god speaks on higher end subs, I got very jealous! Because the Sony just sounded sloppy as hell during that scene. I want a sub that can produce tight, clean, loud bass that does not get boomy or sloppy, the type that you can feel in your chest. And sounds good with both movies and music. I first considered the Velodyne CHT-12, but after listening to it at Circuit City I was not all THAT impressed. Anyway I would like some comments and opinions on it, esp. from owners of the sub. And would also like to know how it compares to the Velodyne CHT-12. BTW my room is 19x11, Thanks.
