Recommendation for a sub

Hi All,

I recently completed gathering speakers for a full Elac Debut 7.1 system (previously, I had mixed fronts and rears). So I will be running:

2 F5 Towers for the fronts
C5 Center
4 Debut B5s as the surrounds

I'm primarily looking for a sub for movies; I'm pretty happy running my music 2.0 through the F5s. I'm trying to keep my budget at or below 400, but would stretch to 500 if no other good option exists. I have the ability to run 2 subs, but right now, for my wallet's sake, I'm just looking for one to start (I'm coming from an old Sony 10" sub, so pretty much anything is an upgrade).

Reading a few posts, I've noticed that two names seem to appear more than others: Hsu and SVS, so currently the VTF-1 MK3 and the PB-1000 are my front runners.

Finally, the room it is going to be in is roughly 20x13, with a sloped ceiling going from 12 ft to about 8 ft (sloped along the length), with a large opening towards the back left of the viewing area into the adjoining room, along with a hallway on the back. I realize a 2 sub solution would probably be better, but as I only have the funds for a single sub, lets keep the recommendations to subs that can work solo please.

The Monolith THX Select 10 is $500 and what I would go with over either of your two mentioned subs.

@MIX_MASTER_ICE And I noticed you pointed out this discovery a bit after posting here. This would keep the OP real close to preferred budget.


"Just a heads up that today from 8AM-4PM PST Ebay will have a posted code for 15% off, with a max discount of $100. You can buy the Monolith THX Select 10 from Monoprice via their ebay store, so it would be priced $424.99 after discount.

Looks interesting, will add it to the short list. I noticed Monoprice doesn't honor coupons on their own website for this sub, so these ebay coupons are probably the next best bet.

I would snatch up the Monolith THX Select 10 for $425. Heck of a deal and the last thing I need is another sub, but I ordered one.
