Aquaman on Atmos is too much for my old sub -- Upgrade Time!
I've had a $1,000 HSU sub (I think it was a VTF3 MK 4?) for about 12 years and it has served me very well. However, I just upgraded my preamp to an Atmos model (Marantz 7705) and, after watching the Aquaman UHD for about an hour, I feel like my sub is crying and limping. It seems to be bottoming out (loud sound of something banging against wood) every five minutes in that movie. So, while I hate to part with the old girl, I am forced to wonder if I need to step up to today's tech.
I have a pretty big theater (13 wide by almost 30 feet long), but I can only use one sub (as I have space for only one box to house it outside the room and one hole for it to blast through). For $1,000 to no more than $1,500, can I get a new sub that is not going to bottom out when I watch the Atmos track of Aquaman at reference levels (0 DB)? The sub it not visible from anywhere in the room, so I don't want to pay any extra for a pretty one.
What do you think hivemind of AV geniuses? Should I upgrade? Will it solve my problem? SVS SB-3000? JL Audio Dominion d110 Subwoofer? What would be the best choice at this proice point?
Thanks in advance for the help!
