Hi, is the STF-2 a better choice for a 16.5L x 13W x 10H theater room of a PB10? I am assuming both of these will be better than a BIC H100? Thank you.

I looked at these two subs(New Hsu STF-2 and Used SVS PB-10) when I was purchasing mine. They both are excellent subs for the money. I think the SVS goes a little deeper but it costs more unless you buy it used.


In the end I got the SVS because I got a decent deal on it used and it was front firing(That ended up being a requirement for me). I am completely happy with the SVS PB-10 and their customer support is top notch. However, I am sure I would have been happy with the Hsu if the requirement had been that I needed a down firing sub.

thanks. What were the considerations into down-firing vs. front-firing? I see this requirement a lot but not sure what all the factors to consider are.

It wasn't a good requirement! It was due to WAF. I had to place the sub in an enclosure in my entertainment center. A front firing sub was the only sub that would work in the enclosure. Here are some pictures of what I had before(Yamaha) to what I have now(SVS PB-10). I don't think it really matters whether it is front firing or down firing if you have the ability to place the sub in the ideal spot in a room(Usually a corner near the listening position).

IC...got it. Thanks for the clarification. I will try to get a PB-10. Hopefully a B-Stock becomes available. Thank you again.
