SUB Decision!!!!

Ok I need help making a decision on a sub i was going to go with a klipsch sub but i have got some poor feed back on them.

I know this gets said almost every time, but if at all possible - extend your budget and grab the HSU VTF3 mk5

13' x 24' x ~8' = ~2,500 cu.ft. Not a huge room, but not a small one, either.

If you can stretch your budget, the VTF-3 MK5 HP is the best value (bang-for-buck) option.

But a pair of Monoprice Monolith 12" for $1,500, shipped, is pretty hard to argue with, IMO.

Great suggestions! He could even start with a single Monolith 12 and buy the 2nd later to complete the setup.

Of course. That's a great AVR. I'd choose the ported Monolith subs in your price range.

Lots of good advice here. I like Grappler's take--"buy once, cry once". That's what I did for our main floor living room (VTF-3 Mk5 HP) and the basement media room (twin Power Sound Audio V1811 subs). What's most important is that your preferences, goals, and budget are your own...and your room will not be like anyone else's. But buy from any of the internet-direct manufacturers (Hsu, Monoprice Monolith, SVS, PSA, Rythmik, JTR, etc.) and you really can't go wrong.

Best of luck with your decision!

Not a great value anymore now that the BasX line of subs has been discontinued.

PORTED SUBWOOFERS $600 AND BELOW, DELIVERED

NOTE:
*THE LARGER PORTED SUBS DELIVER AT LEAST 40% MORE SOUND PRESSURE LEVEL
THAN THE SAME BRAND'S SEALED VERSION WITH SAME SIZE WOOFER AND AMP
*IF LOOKING AT LARGER/MORE EXPENSIVE SUBWOOFERS ADD PSA TO THE LIST OF BRANDS
*IF YOU ARE NOT AN ACTION MOVIE FAN A SUBWOOFER WITH 22-30HZ EXTENSION WOULD BE FINE
*FOR MUSIC A 30HZ SUB IS A FINE CHOICE
*BEFORE BUYING MAKE A CARDBOARD CUTOUT OF THE SIZE OF THE SUB TO MAKE SURE IT IS NOT TOO LARGE FOR YOU

Specs are from the manufacturer unless noted otherwise.
120watts =13w15h16d= 29 lbs 10" [29hz] $250 MARTIN LOGAN DYNAMO 500, limited time offer

Outlaw Ultra-X12. On sale, it tends to run about $650, shipped. A pair for $1,300 would be pretty sweet.

I would sit tight until the next ebay discount code to get $100 off or monoprice run another 20% off the Monolith THX Ultra 12. That would put the sub at your $700 budget or less. Best 12" sub I've ever experienced.

The Denon's have dual sub outs and Audyssee has the ability to EQ the subs as well, so you're good to go.

Note: Any AVR that has sub outs can run a powered subwoofer.


As for which sub to get...

Get the biggest, best sub you can within your allocated budget. Even if it's just a single now, as you can always add another one later. I say this merely due to the fact that at some point most people want MORE. This will help eleminate the "upgraditis" & "what ifs", and it will save you a lot more money in the grand scheme of things.

With that said, the Hsu VTF3 MK5 that was mentioned at the beginning of your thread would be worth extending your budget a little to get. You'll be much happier with the results of having the larger cone. Hence, most people eventually upgrading to the 15"-18" drivers.


Hope this helps,

Darrell

2 different price points. Overall the LVX12 is the better sub.

Iirc....you had the predecessor Rythmik unit and have owned several subs... Seen folks here often shy away from recommending the monolith....citing extenuating circumstances which for argument sake are duly noted....but from what I've seen and read the monolith are tremendous performers and now appear they're releasing "new" sealed units....they must be doing something right...I reckon.

The only Rythmik sub I've owned was the LV12R and I wasn't too impressed with it. I own or have owned several quality 12" subs, but none of them impressed me nearly as much as the Monolith THX Ultra 12. Claridy did a great job with the Monolith subs and when on sale they are really tough to beat.

If you can expand your budget some and decide you would like the Hsu VTF-3, look on the Hsu clearance page or email Kevin to see if you can snag a B-stock unit when one comes available--it typically has been enough of a discount that shipping winds up essentially free. That's how I got mine for a decent discount, so it was even more of a bargain.

I was actually looking into building a pair sonotube subs with 18' drivers (24" x 6').

This is the first time, I notice in your Signature;
Bedroom - Blose: Cinemate II GS 2.1
Love-it!!!

That did put a big smile on my face
Most folks do not understand why, I walk away from some vehicle due to the fact they use Bose.
Instead I got lots of this And reply's that they sound so good and play loud.

Sorry in advance to derail this thead a little, and now back to the subject at hand

You're up to 9.2.4 now? Is that correct? Receivers that can process 13 channels are much more expensive than those that can do 11. Example: Denon AVR-X8500H. $4k list, not a lot less on the street.

You'd do better to stay with a 7.2.4 system and spend the extra on the subs.

That line is how I live my entire life. Extend it past HT, and apply towards vehicles, appliances, anything. I tend to wait, buy, and keep what I buy. Upgrayedd thusly spelled with two D’s, for a double dose of this pimpin’, doesn’t get me much. But some people are fidgety or must have new new all the time.

I run dual HSU VTF2 MK5's in a room with similar cubic feet as yours and never have they felt inadequate. Would two 15's sound even better lower, hell yeah, but a room of that size it might just be overkill outside of some very selected movie tracks that would take advantage of lets say below 18hz. Two subs like that will outperform one 15" also without working that hard. But overall if the sub can hit a cleaner 22hz or so your covered a very large majority of the time. So with HSU VTF2 MK5's hitting 18hz your pretty much covered and it does an excellent job of being clean sounding on its way down and that is what makes a great sub and what you pay for.

I run them with with one vent plugged and they hit hard and rumble great. In that room I'm only running them at about volume level 2.5 on the back of them and I think I set my receiver is giving them a 1.5 or 2 db bump. I could crank them up so much more but they completely fill that room with all the bass 99% of people would ever want and you can feel it when it hits and rumbles.

I'd highly recommend them or the Rhythmik. Both have a great reputation and if you ever wanted to go bigger down the road in a few years you'd probably be able to recoup a good chunk of your money. But in a room of your size and what those subs are capable of I'm not sure you'd hear much benefit for big part of your listening experience with larger subs.

What's most important is that your preferences, goals, and budget are your own...and your room will not be like anyone else's. But buy from any of the internet-direct manufacturers (Hsu, Monoprice Monolith, SVS, PSA, Rythmik, JTR, etc.) and you really can't go wrong.

Best of luck with your decision!
I have two PSA 1800 also. Two SVS sealed 12s also in a Duplex. I started Home Theater in the mid 80s.
Had a subwoofer before subwoofers were cool. Power Amp too.

Same here. I sells guns and train people for a living. Everyone regrets going half way. End up losing way more than they saved upgrading/trading in, in the first place.You only live once, you could die tomorrow. Get what you want.

I suppose that no one has starved or frozen to death because they spent too much on guns or AV gear.

Maybe a mortgage foreclosure or early demise due to being unable to pay for medical care, but...
