Advice on subwoofer for my living room
Hi, years ago I bought a 5.1 Onkyo pack (AVX-390) with all the equipment in pack (with passive SW), worked ok but wanted to improve quality, so I started to change it.
First I bought Polk Audio S35 as central, later Polk Audio S15 for L/R, keeping old Onkyo satellites for surround, finally I bought a new AVR (Sony STR-DN1080) and started without SW as the old one was passive.
Problem is that I have a limitation in space, have a place for the SW on the TV fitment. I found a cheap second hand Elac Debut S10 that I can send back if I don't like it, and seems I'm not liking it much.
Sony calibration puts the subwoofer very very low on level, making me almost feel nothing from it looking on some movies like War of the Worlds, the famous Jurassic Park scene, Star Trek 2009 when the ships go hyperspace... If I up level a lot, like 15 dB then I start feeling the SW, but dunno if it's the good thing to do cause bad calibrated from AVR or it's something else.
The Elac Debut S10 says it can go 35-150, the old passive Onkyo SW was 30-150.
Should I just keep the S10 puting level up myself? Or should I return it and go for another one like the SVS SB-1000 that can go down till 24 Hz? The place I have for the SW in the furniture is just 44 cm x 35 cm x 36 cm (HxWxD) or 17.32" x 13.77" x 14.1". I really wish I had more space to go for the PB-1000 but I can't. I can on movie watching take the SW out from the furniture and place on floor, but can't keep there all time.
I attach a two photos from the TV zona with speakers, the SW placement and the room distances (sorry it's in meters).
Thanks in advance, and sorry for my english, it's not my own language.
