Subwoofer choice due to limited space/placement

Looking for help deciding on a sub for my new system. Usage 95% movies. Living room is 25'x20'x8' and it opens up to the kitchen/dining room, so it is a large space. I've got a Goldenear 3D Array coming to run as my LCR and a pair of Supersat 3's to use as my surrounds. Will add height speakers later. As you can tell by the photo, due to the 12" high brick, I've only got so much room for placement. Note: The TV will be moved up 3-4 inches higher than current position when I install the 3D Array, and the Array will be 5" shorter on width on each side of my TV.

The tape marks are for visualization as I was debating between an SVS PB-1000 or a PB-12NSD placed 3" from walls. I would prefer to keep price around $500 for now, although I could stretch the budget a little if needed. Adding a second sub at the back of the room would be an option down the road. There's plenty of room for it there. But 1st sub would have to be on the brick as I've got hardwood floors, kids and dogs, so away from the wall on the main floor is a no-go.

I'm open to suggestions. Would love something smaller/sealed (SB-12NSD or maybe SB-2000 pro?) so it doesn't take up so much space on the brick. But the room volume is so large that I'm not sure how that would sound, even if adding a second match later.

Thoughts or ideas?

I dont like looking at subs...all my subs to my side or behind me. in your case I would recommend a larger sub behind you.

........and with the size of your room probably 2 large ported subs.

As I'll be using this with the 3D Array which is fairly small, I would think that not having a sub in the front would not blend well.

crossover that high I will agree...that soundbar says it goes down to 80...if using a xover at 80/90/100 you can usually not localize the bass....my soundbars go down to 50...oh well...when you get your soundbar, measure it and see if 80hz xover works. if it does, get a big sub and put behind ya.

and 2 subs would be optimal for that size of open space for sure. I would for sure plan on budgeting for a 2nd one. Prob do dual ported with your room. You could always look in classifieds here as well to see if someone is selling 1 or 2 subs that could be local to you.....

I'm OK planning for 2nd sub. Just wondering if I step up to, say, the new SVS SB-2000 Pro model, and eventually get a second one of those, how it would compare to dual PB-1000 or PB12-NSD. I can't fit any larger than the PB12 on the brick (and that may be too large). Not much for sale near me used, unfortunately.

You space is ideal for making a 10 inch deep by 36 high subwoofer box for a couple 15 inch subs in the enclosure. (behind the couch). Also the coffee table double 15 downfiring subwoofer. This if course is work and an investment, but it will just become part of the original space.

A Good amplifier requires a adequate power supply, It does not matter what the amplifier is capable of if the power supply will not provide the power required. Most amplifiers have under rated power supplies. It is up to you to make sure you get the ones that are least under rated if at all.

With 95% movies a ported sub (or 2) will be the way to go. Some ported subs are just taller and not really wider or deeper than the sealed versions, which should work well on the front.

I'm not Bob Villa nor do I have the time for this. And I already said that anything away from wall placement is not an option. Thanks though.

I think you may have to up the initial budget if you want a really good HT experience. An SVS SB2000pro will work and provide usable bass in your room from around the upper 20hz range. For frequencies above the low 20hz range distance to the listening position is more of a factor than room size.



I think you should seriously take a look at going with at least this- http://www.hsuresearch.com/products/uls-15mk2.html as it will fit and has really good output above 20hz. Above 30hz it will have more than double the output of the PB12NSD. Most HT content is above 30hz anyway.


The SVS SB3000 is also a good option that is very small for its amount of output. Not as powerful under 40hz as the larger HSU it comes close to matching it from around 50hz and above, and it's really small.

Thanks for the input. That HSU might work since it's a few inches shorter than the PB12NSD (but wider). But after discussing with the wife, seems like she would prefer going smaller, even if that means I spend a little more. So I need to weigh all my options.

Don't assume that the spot you have picked out is going to produce good bass. You might get lucky, but odds are that you will need to move it somewhere else to get it right. Whatever you choose for a sub, flexibility in placement should be high on the list of wanted characteristics.

The problem is that I'm limited in placement in this room. It's either somewhere along that brick shown in the photo (can be either side of the fireplace), or one spot in the back of the room on the back wall. Or I can use both if I go dual. That's it. There are no other choices for me in the situation so I will have to make do with whatever works best from those. We are not rearranging this room to improve sound characteristics. Its primary function is as our living area, secondary will be as our home theater.

We had a house like that, and then we bought another house pretty much just like it—no good place for subwoofer response in the living room without drastically rearranging the furniture. And that just wasn’t practical.

It doesn’t sound like you have any flexibility for placing subs in the room. You might get lucky, but it’s not very likely.

I spent a lot of time today—measuring, moving 125 pound subs, more measuring, more moving subs, getting EQ curves on the output side, adding a little more EQ on the input side—trying to see if there are better spots for the dual subs in our basement theater room...a room with its own unique challenges but certainly more flexible than your space.

Your best bet is to purchase from someone who has a decent trial period and return policy so you’re not spending a few hundred dollars for an audition.

Best of luck.

@Shepx13 , can you download REW? It has a room simulator that you can input your room dimensions, and the your subwoofer data. You can move the subwoofers around in the simulator, to see how they would work in your room. REW is a free download, and I think worth the effort.

Not a bad idea. It might provide a glimpse into any challenges you could face.

I downloaded it and played around. Not sure how helpful/accurate it can be since there's so many variables that can't be input with my set up. That said, if it's close to accurate, rear wall placement (in the spot I could put it) is much worse than in the front.

@Shepx13 , did you try adding another subwoofer as well? This will let you see options for dual placement as well. If you are limited with just one spot, then should get a UMIK mic and try to use the full power of REW.

Yes, I did. I'll share photos from the results later this evening.

OK, here's what I've come up with. Since the adjoining room isn't rectangle, not sure how accurate this will be. Maybe someone can help me decipher what I'm looking at (have somewhat of an idea).

While your location might not be flexible, I think you will get better result by placing-it on the right side of the TV monitor. Since been having the sub on the hardwood floor, should give better TR than on those bricks. And for your simulations, using "REW room sim results". The last one look like the best one, that said those simulator are design with the perfect rectangle room. And may differ a lot, when the room has some angles built into-it.

A Mini DSP might resolve, some of the problems but not all;
https://www.minidsp.com/
And/or also using REW, and cannot help on those since I do not use them at all. Are they good? Yes people who use those programs swear by-it.

Unfortunately, I can't place the sub to the right of the TV as that's the walkway to the laundry room and beyond that is the kitchen.

I know your not bob villa, but you could try bolting a subwoofer to the ceiling. Its seems you have no space anywhere to place a sub without causing a divorce, tripping over it, or placing it in a space that would have poor results.

One subwoofer setups usually need to be placed in one of the corners, and seeing as your not a computer wizard either, I would stick to the standard recommendations for placing one or two subs. This is a subject that can go on forever. The only way your going to really find where to put a subwoofer, is from buying one, and then using your ears as you try to place it somewhere. Not much point in getting all technical.

A Good amplifier requires a adequate power supply, It does not matter what the amplifier is capable of if the power supply will not provide the power required. Most amplifiers have under rated power supplies. It is up to you to make sure you get the ones that are least under rated if at all.

I didn't realize this was an option in REW. I received my UMIK-1 yesterday and downloaded REW. Now, I just need to buy a sub and find the best placement.
