SVS, HSU or Rythmik ?
I've the following setup:
Martin Logan Motion 40 (main)
Motion 8 (Center Channel)
B&W CCM362/6 1/2 inch ceiling speaker (for Surround)
Recently, we moved to our own house so I need (or I can now) add sub woofer to the system. The area is 350 sq ft with 9ft ceiling so around 3500 Cubic ft space and has a open layout because of stairs, and open kitchen. My budget is $1000-1200 USD, and sub has to look good (preferably piano black finish similar to our Motion 40). We do 50/50 movies and songs and listen to around -20db in our Yamaha AVR and I do not have space for dual sub.
Based on other forum feedback these are the good subs which fits my budget but aesthetically they do not please my wife.
1. Rythmik LVX12
2. VTF-3 MK5 /VTF-2
3. SVS PB-2000
4. PSA 15V
She does approve these two: 1. SVS SB-2000 -Piano black 2. Rythmik - FV15HP - Piano black
Rythmic FV15HP is great but is costing $1550+Shipping, and based on feedback SVS SB-2000 doesn't do a good job compared to PB-2000. Do you think I do have other choices based on the criteria ?
If not, I am thinking to try SVS SB-2000 as it is free shipping and 45 days trial period and if not happy then either need to consider Rythmik LVX12/HSU VTG-3 MK5 if I do not want to spent $1600 on Rythmik FV15HP.
Please let me know your recommendation, as not all suppliers provide free shipping and these subs are not available is nearby store to try.
