That SVS PB12 NSD (12" driver, 400 watts, rolls off at 22 Hz) model is no longer available, bummer. I like the SVS brand. The replacement model is either the PB-1000 (10" driver, 300 watts, rolls off at about 27 Hz,) $499, or the SVS PB-2000 (12" driver, 550 watts, rolls off at 20 Hz, has app for your phone) $799.
I don't think the PB-1000 is going to light my fire. The PB-2000, at $800 is kind of pricey. I will research some more. That Hsu looks interesting.
I've pretty much decided I want towers because they will move more air and also for aesthetic reasons. What are some competitors to the Polk Signature S55?
I've never heard anyone on AVS claim Yamaha YPAO is better than Audyssey for EQ.
The HSU VTF2 has more EQ options than any SVS or Monoprice.
As you must have towers I'd just replace the receiver and sub with your budget.
Are you located near any of these guys?
