Guys,
One of my colleagues has asked me to recommend a subwoofer for $650 or less. I did find the above subwoofers in this range. He wants to buy it today. so not much time to do research myself. He wants a smaller foot print (WAF). I am not following subwoofer market in last 3years since i bought my eD subwoofer.

His speakers are PSB Imagine series. Room is large 13 x 23 with opening to kitchen. They have a high ceiling.

Please advice.

What is he after in terms of sound quality and output? The SVS would be excellent for a mostly music system. If geared more towards ht I would pick the HSU or look at the Outlaw models.

These three subs are quite different from each other. Will this sub be used more for music or home theater? How large of a sub will be accepeted by his wife? Does he care about pressurizing the room with bass or just adding a some low end to his system?

The SB12nsd is the only sub here that truly has a small footprint.

I think he is looking at 60% music and rest as TV/movies. He has no idea about quality and output. He wants an overall subwoofer for his 2 speakers. He doesn't have a 5 speaker setup. Just stereo!

In that case he will be very happy with the SB12nsd for a 2.1 channel setup.
