SVS PB-1000 or 2 subs

I have 2 spots where bass hits the hardest. Right next where our seating area is in our basement rec room and on the corner next to our projector screen.

Would it better to get 2 Dynamo 300's and place them in these pots or 1 SVS PB-1000?

ML Dynamo 300
- 8" driver
- 75W (RMS/continuous) amp
- 32–150Hz +/-3dB

SVS PB-1000
- 10" driver
- 300W (RMS/continuous) amp
- 19-270Hz +/-3dB

I'd get an SVS for significantly more overall output and much greater extension.

And if/when additional funds become available, I'd add a second one.

-- Edit --
Another option - something in-between the MLs and the SVS - is dual Klipsch Sub-12 subs, when on sale for ~$200-$230/ea. (at, say, Amazon.com).

Klipsch Sub-12
- 12" driver

How large is the room? Not knowing your basement size, I'll assume it's larger rather than smaller. I wouldn't mess with the Dynamo 300's, especially for home theater. Get one good sub and place it in the best location. Then get another one later on and put it in the other hot spot. Is $500 your max budget?

Subs>RBH I-12e, I-12. HSU VTF-15H mk2. Monolith THX 12(x2), THX 10(x2). XTZ 1X12. SVS PB-1000(x2). Speakers>JBL Studio 270/235c/230/225c. Sony CS3/CS8/CS5. QA 3020i/3090Ci, 2020i/2000c. Monolith Cinema 5bs. Polk RTiA1/CSiA4. Other Audio>Sony MDR-Z7m2,V6, XB900n,700,XB32,XB31. Sennheiser HD58X,HD4.50,PC37X. HiFiMAN HE4XX. Philips SHP9500. SIVGA SV004. SA HDTwo. HyperX CloudPS4.

Why not the pb2000?
It's not much more money but much more bass.

Recently got a sb2000 and totally in love. It's more than I need, but will be there when I do.

Would it work well with the Yamaha RX-V379BL AV.

My setup is: BenQ W1070, 110" screen, Yamaha AV, Elac B6 bookshelves.

I agree. While two $150 subs may not outperform a $500 sub, Two $250 subs will probably give you a better experience by eliminating the nulls in your room. There was a huge improvement when I added my second sub.

Looks like you have a fairly large space. I would be saving up for something more capable of filling that space. I wouldn't be looking at the PB-1000 unless $500 is your absolute max budget. If that's the case, the RBH I-12 would be more capable for the same money,

Would you get a couple of 8 inch subs and place them where you know the bass hits the strongest?

Other than that sub what are some options that I can get now because that particular model costs more at the moment.

I used to have a Yamaha soundbar with an 8" sub and believe it not when I placed it in the corner area it had great punch and deep bass. That's what made me think 2 of them would be great.

What is your budget that you need to stay under for a new subwoofer or 2? It helps to understand what kind of money you plan on spending.
Nobody wants to advise you on more than you could afford and at the same time if you are willing to spend X amount of dollars no need to offer suggestions for cheap subwoofers.

Ive got some stuff

With the AV, Elac B6, (no center yet, may not even need one) and the sub around $750. Based on the picture would you stay with the B6's or go with tower speakers like the SP-FS52-LR?

call svs up and talk to them to advise...or rythmik....or psa. you might be surprised by the responses you get and offers. They are the true experts on their products.

I did and SVS told me to get 2 subs at $950. It's over my budget.

bass waves travel at long lengths (maybe 45-50 feet). you might be surprised how well 1 decent sub fills your space.

Cant really advise you on switching your bookshelf speakers for the towers since I have never heard those bookshelf speakers before. I can say this, I have a pair of the Pioneer SF-51 towers and the matching center C-21, that was my 1st H/T setup. For the price they did a good job. They have been sitting in their original boxes though for a few years now. I feel its important to have a center channel, preferably a matching or as close as possible for timbre match. If you live in Colorado and are somewhat close I could let you hear the Pioneers. There is not much difference between the 51 and 52 models, just a little different look. You can go to Best Buy to hear the Pioneer 52 towers.

As far as a subwoofer with a $750 budget I would look for a SVS PC-2000 or a PB-2000. You could also go the Klipsch route with 2 RSW-12 subs on sale. Me personally I would rather have just one SVS PB-2000 or PC-2000 than 2 Klipsch subwoofers.

Edit: Just looked at your post again, are you saying you have a combined budget of $750 for the AVR, speakers and the sub?

Ive got some stuff

call tom at psa or enrique at rythmik and see what they say. i have 30x50ft with 15" ceilings and ran it for a while with 1 12 in sub...your ? to us is whether 1 sub is better than 2 lower priced subs and it really depends. I would get the best sub I could afford and add another as I saved if I felt I really needed a second sub.
