Been following the thread a lot and found lots of helpful posts from knowledgeable people!
I recently bought a KEF LS50 Wireless system. The sound is amazing but it's lacking in the bass department. I have read in a lot of posts that the LS50s have serious bass for their size but it guess it was their opinion. I like a good amount of bass with my music so a bit of background might help everyone to give me better feedback.
The speakers are in my bedroom of dimensions 18.5 ft x 15 ft x 10.5 ft (ceiling height). Concrete floors and solid walls. They are sitting on KEF Performance stands. Now the thing is I have never heard a sealed subwoofer before. All my subwoofers till now is ported and I live in a country where auditioning is not possible, atleast not the subs I want.
I like my bass loud but balanced. I want to have the chest thump but with clean bass, not sacrificing the mids and highs. Occasionally I would like to have the headroom to crank it up for action movies
. I've gone through tons of "Sealed vs Ported" posts and I think I would like to try a Sealed subwoofer since I will listen primarily to music with occasional movie viewing. I'm all in for their fast timing and no overhang. I'm just scared if the sealed subs will have too low of an output and too lean compared to the "heavy ported sound" I'm used to.
I am thinking of three subwoofer models specifically and I am planning to go dual setup (one for each LS50
). They are:
1. KEF Kube 12b
2. SVS SB2000
3. SVS SB3000
The KEF Kubes because I guess KEF with KEF will blend in better? How are the SVS SB2000 compared to the KEF Kubes? They have very similar prices. I'm considering the dual SB3000 ONLY if you guys think the other two will not give me enough bass to satisfy my inner basshead
according to my room dimensions (Pushing my budget quite a lot though).
I have tried the LS50 wireless with the subwoofer of my previous system ... DRUMROLL ..... Logitech Z5500! Yes the single 10 inch PORTED subwoofer crossed in to around 75 to 80Hz from the KEF control app and I was actually quite satisfied with that. For me any sub is better than no sub with the LS50s. So you guys can have a point of reference
. I guess any of the subs above will eat the Logitech subwoofer for breakfast right? RIGHT?
Apologies for the huge post but hopefully someone with experience with these subs would chime in.
