Looking to upgrade from my dual SVS 16-46CS+ subs
I have had my current subs since 2002, and at some point I upgraded the woofers to the 12.3 models if I remember the designation correctly. I've also had to replace the amp when the original Samson amp SVS sold me lost a channel. Overall they have served me well, but lately I've been noticing some noises that don't sound right with really loud, low sounds and I think it's time to upgrade.
So my question is, what is a good upgrade from these? A lot has changed in the subwoofer market in the past 17 years. I see that Tom is now at Power Sound Audio, and Ron has moved to a new industry. I'm not even sure how to draw a comparison to what I have since they've been off the market so long. So far I've been looking at specs at SVS, Power Sound Audio, and JTR.
I'm dealing with an enclosed room, approximately 12' x 19' x 10' (WxLxH), on a slab, with the second row of seating on a raised platform. I have 7 channels of Klipsch KL-7800-THX in-wall speakers along with 4 ceiling speakers for Atmos, Marantz 7704. I'm mainly concerned about movies. I want to feel the bass as well as hear it.
So I'm curious if folks think a single SVS PB-4000 or PSA V1811 or S3611 would provide more oomph than my current subs. Do I need to step up to a PB16-Ultra or do I need to work with dual subs again?
My budget is 2 grandish, but I have wiggle room.
