I have two pb1000s in my 15x20 x10 media room and the bass is great. Does it go as low or as loud as some of the other companies 15 inch ported subs - of course not. But I have a family as well and they don’t always appreciate the bass that the pb1000s put out when they are not watching a movie with me.
For music I don’t love what they do but I am almost entirely using them for movies. If you care about music I would suggest looking at some other options. Maybe you could get the pb1000s dialed in there but I think the mid bass punch would be lacking compared to other options.
I often wonder what some hsu 15s would be like or psa 15s. But still haven’t tried it.
I've been thinking about this a lot over the past 2 days as I've come to grips with the fact that I'm unhappy with my current bass. I kept telling myself I was happy, but I wasn't. I keep thinking back to when I demo'ed some atmos speakers, one thing I immediately noticed (not from atmos, of course) was that I "felt" the bass and how much of a difference it made. So much so that I was distracted from the demo of the atmos speakers because of it.
Then, my aha moment came when describing to my wife the difference between my 10" JL Audio speakers I had in my car (back before we ever met), and the difference when I upgraded to 12" JL Audios. I distinctly remember the different in some of the low ends bottoming out w/ the 10", but after upgrade, how it made a huge difference in bringing those to life, and I demonstrated the difference (with my voice, lol).
Now, that was clearly related to listening to music
in my car, but the theory is the same in terms of what I personally feel like I'm missing right now in movies--I want the crashes, explosions, airplanes, the lower end of soundtracks, etc to really come alive. And while it's not as long/pronounced as a 4-beat low note in a song, the feeling of "wanting" more is consistently dissatisfying (whereas, during the demo in store I mentioned above, it was incredibly satisfying).
, I'm not suggesting any particular choice/decision (I've made my choice, but haven't ordered it yet), just pointing out to consider what you're really wanting most out of your system and seek a solution accordingly. I can't say what two 10" subs would sound like in my setup, but knowing what I really want to hear, I doubt they could deliver the satisfaction for what I want, but thankfully, my wife is open to me having a larger sub.
