     So was about to pull the trigger on a SVS PB2000 when the tax man cometh.  I relocated to MI and will be charged tax for an SVS Sub.  So now the cost of my list of subs goes something like this:   PSA XV15:  799 + Free Shipping + no tax = 799.00 SVS PB2000:  799 + Free Shipping + 35ish Tax...

    HSU subs the VTF-3.4 and 3.3 I have been instructed to use the rat-shack spl meter to set the subs at 80 dB prior to using Audyssey calibration with my receiver Onkyo-809 . However when I run Audyssey it tells me to set the sub or subs to 75 dB. If I mess with the subs volume dial to get to...

    I'll start out by stating, I'd rate myself a super novice on this stuff. I have a living room that opens pretty much to rest of the house on one side. Blue are windows, Grey is fireplace, Black is TV, Red is sofas, Green are Hsu speakers. Orange is just measurements. Ceiling is 9' Here...

    Let me start by saying I know this is commonly asked question, but with new products out and on the very near horizon I felt it to be fair game to ask... I am presently running 3 subs (2 boston rally 12s in custom boxes for home use and a boston cps12wi) that I got free from my old boss. I...

    My main speakers are PSB speakers. I have the T5 series. They sound great, but my current Klipsch sub has been really weak and I don't even know why I bought it in the first place. I want to accommodate what I have now with a Subwoofer that isn't too much, but not too little either...

     I have read a few sub reviews and being a newbie to the whole audiophile thing I am having difficulty determining the best budget sub for my room.  Perhaps budget and audiophile is a oxymoron.  It is a basement room 18x25x7 about 3,200 cu ft. and the flooring is carbonized stranded bamboo..  I...

    I had initially looked at budget subs to fill my large, unfinished basement approx 10000 cubic ft. Started out with the Dayton sub 1200/1500. With the current svs sale I'm considering the pb12nsb. How does this sub compare to Hsu vtf4, rhythmic lvr12? Also, any other subs I should be looking...

     I will be purchasing a ported 10" sub for my HT.  I use it for movies 75% of the time.  I've narrowed my options to the SVS PB1000 and HSU's VFT-1 MK2 or the STF-2.  I'm leaning toward HSU because my friend's experience with the VTF-2 has been so good.  I would just get the VTF-2 but I really...
