I only have the RX line, and I am using (2)PB12-plus’s. At the time I bought my system I was 90% movies, and I selected to go with the monitor/sub combo. As of now, I am about 50/50, with music and movies. Monitor Audio has really changed me with the music side at home.
I’m using the RX2’s, which has the 8in driver, and I play them without subs for my 2channel listening using the Onkyo 5008.
I did give a good listen to the MA subs, but like I’m doing with you, people were telling me to give Internet direct companies a chance. When I was auditioning the MA sub, I did listen to an older Genesis servo sub, which embarrassed the MA sub, and made me consider the internet sub companies.
I had a hard time deciding between SVS and Sunfire subs. I have a friend who has the Sunfire and they are amazing also.
I was thinking of getting the Ultra-13, but didn’t want to spend that much on two of them. Reading multiple great reviews on the PB12 plus, I took a leap of faith and have been extremely proud ever since.
A this point, I would need an in-home trial to see what I like over my current subs.
