Seeking advice on a new sub for my listening enjoyment
Hey everyone! Just joined, but I've been reading for a week. Awesome and extremely helpful site. Thanks in advance for help. I've really appreciated the knowledge (and entertainment) I've gained so far.
Here's my 'sitiation'.
Decided I'd add a sub to my system.
Yamaha RX-v730 75w rms 5.1 (6.1),
a pair of 3-way JBL L110s that are in good shape, and a center spkr. I might add rear spkrs at some point.
We watch some pretty benign MOVIES, sports, and I enjoy music. No gaming. Anyway, I thought I'd add sub for not a lot of money, and place it in the 16" corner space next to my L main spkr just to add bass clarity and LFE's, and to relieve my AVR and L110's of the bass/sub duty. So I started looking, reading/researching.
I read a Dayton was highly recommended. I saw the 10 & 12" Klipsch, and the Polk HTS10 for under $250 on sale at BB, which I'm leaning towards, and I saw others. I've read about higher end subs as well, but want to stay under $250. I feel like that would satisfy me considering my application.
My JBL's are 10" woofers, and at first I thought I'd try a 12" sub, but now I think a good quality 10" will suffice for me. I'm not looking for earth shattering or massive bass, but I do like good quality sound.
My listening/living room is carpeted over wood, not more than 20' x 20', and it has a cathedral ceiling.
Then I found the sub output jack on my AVR is limited at 90 Hz, so the manual says.
So the sub's duty will apparently be for LFE's and <90 Hz sound. BTW, my JBL's are rated down to 20 Hz.
What else can I say? Where should I go from here? I'd like to nail something down in the next week or two.
Thanks in advance, and please forgive the redundant nature of my post
