Help deciding...again LOL
Hey guys! Thanks for all the great info last time I posted - I'm about 90% certain I'll make the switch over to Rythmik. After bugging several members on here (and Enrico) I had decided on the G25HP. I am primarily a movie watcher, but We are getting a turntable soon and I do stream from Spotify, so this system will still be used for music.
However, my room isn't ideal. I have 2,200 (approx). cubit foot room, with connecting neighbors in a duplex. When I play my PB-4000, even at moderate levels, they can feel it. So, its just not a house I can really blow the doors off in. I have wood floors w/ a crawl space underneath. I have always leaned towards sealed subs before I got the SVS, but decided to try ported for my movie watching. But now, it all just sounds a bit bloated to me, and obviously not as defined.
I was going to order a G25 next week, as I'm pretty sure they'll sound pretty amazing w/ movies. But tonight, I Have been reading alot about the FV18. It seems like another great fit, and I've been told that Rythmik ported will for sure sound better than what I have. I just want the bass notes to sound a little bit cleaner/tighter, and not as boomy. I have realized that output is NOT my main priority now - I never listen to the PB-4000 above -20 on gain setting or the Marantz master volume. I really care about overall SQ. So....after this long winded post - my question is: which do you guys think is a better fit? G25HP or FV18? I love the idea of the dual opposed in the G25, and many people have said its the best sub they've ever heard. But, every person talk w/ re: Rythmik always says ported first for me. Hope all this rambling makes sense, I'm an excited new customer (soon)
