looking for a sub $1000 sub
Ok here's the situation guys. I have a bedroom setup that I use to watch movies when I'm not on my main system, and while I don't mind turning the volume down, I'm a bass head to the core. My main system in the front room are dual 18 inch martys and there is almost nothing those things can't do (insane). But for the bedroom I have a single SVS PB-10 ISD (at least 14 or 15 years old). Now this bedroom is 12 wide, 14 deep and 8 foot tall (about 1350 sq feet) and a PB-10 does decently well. HOWEVER, I do get some strain cuz a 10 incher can only go so far since I like to listen at wall shaking levels. I've got it calibrated well enough and level matched, but on super low frequency things like End of Tomorrow and A Quiet Place (that thing has a frighteningly low sonic dip) and I get port chuffing on it, meaning I'm straining it just a bit more than it should be (the SVS-PB 10 drops like a rock past 25 hz, so anything low will strain it a tad). NOW, here's the conundrum. I have VERY limited areas to put the subs, but the front left of the room is pretty much my only spots. LUCKILY it's also one of the better spots in the room to put the sub when doing the sub crawl so I lucked out. But what that means is I only have that front left of the room to put subs so multiple subs to smooth nodes is out of the question, so I need to upgrade my old PB-10 to something beefier. Now I'm not going to afford a PB-13 or something, but I was looking around saw the PB-2000 and PC-2000 (I like the PC-2000 due to the footprint) which should be a substantial increase, but I've been out of the ID sub world for so long I have NO IDEA what the competitors offer.
my question is, besides the PB/PC 2000, are there any other subs in the $700-$900 range I should be looking at that would exclipse their performance? Also would the PC-2000/PB-2000 be enough of an upgrade over the old PB-10? I'm wanting to play lower without straining my PB-10 so much, and while it does great in that small of a room, I want to give it more breathing room and go lower
