Adding Polk HTS 12 opinions

My current setup is listed below. I am thinking of replacing the subwoofer with Polk HTS 12. I am looking for opinions or suggestions? Is the Polk HTS 12 much better than my current subwoofer or am I putting too much emphasis on keeping everything Polk? Thanks

The Polk HTS 12 is an excellent sub for the money.

Obviously there are way better subs for more money, but this is a good value sub. This thread covers it all:

Sask is spot on. If the Polk is at the end range of your budget, it's a pretty good option, if not the best. If you have more money ($500+), there are better options. I have a Polk HTS 12, (Sask also had one), and I'm pretty satisfied with it, but I'd be the first one to tell you, if you have the budget, buy something higher in the sub echelon.

What other subs would you recommend? Our options in Canada are not many. I was looking at the polk because of the rest of my setup being polk.

Thanks for the info. I could spend more but at $348 I think this is a great price.

Seems more of a lateral move, as long as your current sub is still working fine. I'd skip it or run the two together.

Matching sub brand to speaker brand isn't important at all. Good to see you have a NX-BAS-500 that is still kicking. The amp on those proved to be unreliable. I haven't heard the Polk HTS12, but that NXG sub is a really good performing budget sub. I had two at one time and was very impressed with them compared to some of the usual suspects from Polk, Bic and Klipsch. If anything, adding the Polk to the NXG might be an option, but I really see no real upgrade in replacing the NXG with the Polk. Or you could sell the NXG and get the Polk. It's likely that the amp will die on the NXG and they went belly up as a company.

Like others have implied, you may want your next upgrade to be more significant. We could be talking about in the PB2000 price range, which is possible to get in Canada, Sask can tell you more about it. A Polk HTS12, PB 1000, and particularly the Monolith THX10 would be nice upgrades, but, if possible, saving a little more for a better sub would be advisable.

If you're not interested in spending that much money or care much a about deeper extension and you'd rather stay on a smaller budget, it's either between the Polk or a SVS PB 1000, whichever fits better your budget. That is just my opinion. Here's a thread from a guy that's also in Canada, and is also evaluating his options. He has a slightly bigger budget, but you can see other options: https://www.avsforum.com/forum/113-s...monoprice.html

Sticking +/- to the OP's budget, I'd take a look at the open-box (w/ full warranty) Polk Audio DSW PRO 660wi at Gibby's for $350. Double the power, greater overall output, better extension.

SVS PB-2000 or SB-2000 would be a good choice, or an HSU perhaps, if you are willing to spend a bit more. I upgraded from an older 12inch Polk sub to the SB-2000 and have not looked back.

I am not sure it is still kicking? I only get minimal bass out of it. It has been minimal since the day I purchased it. I always thought it sure perform better than it has. Returning it was a problem because I purchased it in US & live in Canada. I am hoping to get better results from the Polk if not I will return it. I have ordered it from Visions & is on back order so will be a while until I find out

I am not sure my current sub is working well or ever has. I am a little concerned that if I upgrade to a better sub then my next step will be changing out my entire system to some thing higher end. My current setup is only about a year old. Thanks for the info

Which polk 12 inch sub did you upgrade from? What does the rest of your setup consist of? Did the sub upgrade make a huge difference? Do you play much music with your setup? If so did sub improve the music listening much? I am considering biting the bullet for a higher end sub but am wondering if almost 3 times the price is worth the cost. All opinions appreciated
Thanks

I don't recall the model. Thinking about it, it may have been a 10 inch Polk. It was a few years ago. But yes, the SVS-PB2000 was a dramatic upgrade. I don't play much music with it, mostly use it for movies, but I do have some FLAC audio files and occasionally will put on some music. In particular, the kids love Infected Mushroom, which has lots of bass, so in that case, it does make quite a difference, but as far as I am concerned, I use it mostly for movies. I have the sub close to my seating position and it feels like I have one of those bass shakers in my couch. The impact is insane compared to my older sub. I had a friend over and his wife was startled several times by the impact from the bass, so it makes quite a difference. It's like saying (with the old sub) I hear bass and acknowledge that there is bass to (with the SVS sub) man, did you feel that?!?!

You might make sure you have it set up properly. If the NXG is putting out "minimal bass", then that sounds like a set up issue. That sub has quite a bit of output in it's wheel-house frequency range. One thing that jumps out at me with you stating this is to make sure you have your speakers set to small and a crossover in the 70-100Hz range, depending on your speakers. Having the speakers set to large will REALLY decrease the output to the sub.

How much sub you need is dependent on:
1) How big is the room? including open areas and adjacent rooms.
2) Listening habits? moderate, loud, very loud.
3) Desired output? Do you want that kick in chest thump or smooth even bass?
4) Is the system used more for TV/HT or music?

Kef LS50,Q200C, Q100, SVS SB-2000, Denon AVR-X3400H, NAD 216, Panasonic 50" Plasma, Xbox One.
Bedroom: JBL Loft 50 , Loft 20, Bic F-12, Denon AVR-S710W, PS3, 32" Insigna LED.

The room is an enclosed 12 x 24 feet. I would say my listening is moderate to loud. I would say a smooth even bass. I mainly listen to tv & music. Music more so at loud.

KEF Kube 12b. Great in smaller rooms as the unit's DSP (digital sound processor) can do wonders for situations of constrained placement. Very smooth, very responsive.

A PC2000 for that price is going to be hard to beat in Canada. Just remember if you are purchasing from anyone other than SVS directly I don't believe you are eligible for the upgrade program

Your room is on the larger side. Since you mostly listen to TV/movies, dual SVS PB-1000's would be the way to go. Dual subs would minimize nulls and give you even smooth bass throughout the room. If you can only do a single sub, the SVS PB-3000 would be a good choice or at a minimum the PB-2000 if you can't go over budget. Anything smaller would struggle to fill that space, especially at higher volume. Unfortunately good sub options are limited in Canada.

IMO the best value right now is the open-box (w/ full warranty) Polk DSW PRO 660wi for $349.99 at Gibby's:
- 12" driver
- 400W (RMS/continuous) amp
- 25-125Hz +/-3dB

SVS Subs

What is the differences other than size between the SVS SB-2000 & PB-2000? The SB model I can order for a minimal amount cheaper(only about $100) What is the performance differences? My room is 12 x 24. I am about 50/50 listening between music & movies.
Thanks

You can look at the details on the SVS website but main difference is that SB is sealed and PB is ported. In your room size I would lean towards a ported sub as it will more output around port tune and will fill the room better than a sealed.

Subwoofers: Dual Rythmik FV18s Rev2 with Paper cone, BOSS Platform mini riser, 2 BK LFE
Speakers: PSA MTM-210 L/C/R - Klipsch 250S Surrounds, PSA MT 110sr Rear Surrounds, 4 x SVS Prime Elevation for Atmos
Video: Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 6500 UB; Room: 2100 cuft sealed on suspended floor
Receiver & Players: Denon X4400H, Oppo UDP-203, Roku Ultra. Apple TV, Minidsp 2X4 HD
