I decided to call SVS, PSA, HSU, and Rhythmik today, in hopes of getting some insight directly from the manufacturers.
A little background, I am using the Ambeo in a NYC bedroom, so space is somewhat of an issue. The room is 14.5' L x 13.5' W x 8' H with hardwood floor. As the Ambeo is sitting on top of my dresser, I do not want a sub that is going to protrude too far out into the room, which left me with a roughly 20" depth limitation.
After reaching out to all four manufacturers, the suggestion across the board was to go with a sealed sub. SVS recommended the SB-2000, PSA recommended the S1510 or S1510DF, HSU recommended the ULS-15 MK2, and Rhythmik recommended the L22.
Needless to say, I can't make up my mind whatsoever and was hoping someone who has experience with some/all of these subs could help me make up my mind.
Thanks in advance!
I can wholeheartedly recommend PSA: great products, and equally important, (at least to me) outstanding customer service. Also, if you ever need to upgrade, you can turn used gear for credit toward new (important when you’re dealing with subs which can be tough to sell). These are very high performance and high value.
My second choice would be Rythmik, also great products and customer service, though I found the PSA subs to be more durable.
HSU offers great bang for the buck, but I’ve never actually owned any of their products, so can’t comment further.
SVS would be 4th, due to reliability concerns. Also, I believe much of what you’re paying for is in their extensive marketing budget, unlike the other vendors you referenced. Best of luck whatever you decide, and please post impressions when you get it all dialed in.
