Subwoofer upgrade, useful?
I am in the never ending cycle of upgrading equipment and currently ordering new speakers(Revel M126be bookshelves) in a dedicated 2.1 system. I am running a SB2000 subwoofer that from my REW measurements is plenty for the space(21x14x8).
With this upgrade I thought about getting the Revel B112(v2) to get a nice matching look in the system and better performance. But, I got to thinking "does a subwoofer upgrade matter?"
Ive seen enough people here, more or less, of the opinion that a subwoofer that does the job is the same as the next and wont sound/blend/or otherwise integrate any different. Is this true or to what extent is it "true"?
System: Cambridge 851A, Cambridge DACMAGIC 100, JVC XL-Z1050TN, Rega RP6, Vincent PHO-8, Revel M16(modified crossover), SVS SB2000. A bunch of monster power conditioning junk
