It's been a while since I have been on these boards (been happy with my system with no upgraditis (UNTIL NOW!
)), and now I am out of the lingo. I am looking for a sealed 15" only, and the only 2 choices that will fit my application are the HSU ULS-15 MkII or PSA S1500. From what I have researched the PSA has a bit more headroom, but the HSU can play deeper?
My rough final decision is to pickup the HSU because:
1) HSU is only 20 miles from my house, so I can audition before purchasing.
2) I can pickup locally and avoid shipping costs, but I will have to pay tax. Total will be $842 out the door
3) I can pretty much get the sub instantly (no shipping).
Would it be worth to spend the extra $60 and purchase a B-stock PSA 1500?...considering that I might have to wait a while to receive the sub....and pay return shipping if I do not like it.
I'm currently using a SVS SB12-NSD, so either of these will be a huge upgrade. Room size is roughly 16.5x15x9 (~2250cf), and half of one side of the wall opens into the kitchen, and on the other side an open doorway to a stairwell. The sub will be inside the perforated tv cabinet where the SB12 is currently located.
