SVS SB-1000 vs ELAC Debut 2.0 Sub3030
Interested in buying a sub to add to my stereo system.
Looking at the SVS SB-1000 and the Elac Debut 2.0 Sub3030.
1 - Budget - ~$800 CAD including taxes.
The SVS is $675. The Elac is on sale right now for $699.
2 - Size requirements - the SVS would be nice because of it's small size, and would allow me to place it in 1 of 2 spots in the room. The Elac would have to go in fixed location.
3 - Room dimensions - 7.5' high ceiling, 11.5' deep, 28' wide, although my stereo setup is in an alcove on one end of the 28' wall. (The room is kind of L shaped, and my stereo is at the end of the short leg of an L, with my listening position in the corner of the L).
4 - Primary uses - 95% music, 5% TV/Movies. (It'll get used much more evenly than that, but music is my priority)
5 - Listening habits - lower volume, normal bass levels
6 - Appearance - the finish on both the subs would fit perfectly with the rest of my setup
7 - Timeframe - no rush.
Other notes / my current pro/con list.
- Small size
- Very good reputation
- Line & speaker level in (flexibility)
- The SB-1000 doesn't have the extension of the slightly more expensive but out of my budget SB-2000.
- Good price / discount right now
- Auto / built-in equalizer sounds appealing (I'm very limited on sub placement)
- Intruiged by Andrew Jones designed stuff. (Already have the Pioneer SP-FS52 speakers)
- Connectivity issues - if you can't connect to it, it becomes a brick?
- Future-proof (again, due to connectivity, etc).
Ideally available on Amazon.ca, as I have a good sized gift card I'm hoping to use for this purchase.
Let me know what you think.
