I was hoping to buy something now that will 'improve' the bass in this big space, but be excellent for the next place. We currently watch bluray material at a MV of -10 or so, and it is mostly 2 people watching (so all listening positions probably don't have to be perfect).
I am not in the US so I don't have free trials, and I will list the prices that we pay in Australia just for reference in making decisions. My thinking is to sell the PB2000 and buy all new-although, I could keep it I suppose if it was worth doing.
1- Dual V1800s ($6198 pair)
2- Dual V1500s ($4900 pair)
3- Single V3600 and keep PB2000 nearfield ($4250)
4- Single V3600 and sell PB2000
5- Something else? Eg, 1 x V1800 or V1500 and keep the PB-2000? Sealed? Other?
Appreciate your thoughts.
I can not speak to your specific situation, but I can say I love my dual V1800s. I have only 2400 cu. ft. And they just boom it out of the park. Real deep lows, right and plenty of headroom. I am still giggly with these things. I have had single subs for years and duals just add a new dimension by really filling the space. Honestly all the PSA subs are good products, Tom and team have extensive experience and delive the best bang for the buck of almost any sub around.
