Hello,


I was wondering if I could get some opinions on these subwoofers.


I'm looking for a subwoofer with a compact footprint to go with my Martin Logans. I've narrowed it down currently to either a pair of SB12-NSD or a used Depth i that is available locally.


What I want to accomplish is mid-bass impact (feel it in your chest) during movies and accuracy for 2-channel music. The room is right around 3600 cu. ft and opens into a hallway. Room is 20' L, 14' W and 8' ceilings.


The dual subs would have to be located on the front wall on opposite sides of the audio rack next to each speaker. About 5 feet of separation between each one.


Any advice is appreciated

Probably not a popular opinion but I have owner a depth and dual Abyss subwoofers. The Depth is one of the best musical subwoofers I have ever heard. I have also owned a couple of SVS subwoofers and they are one of the top of the food chain sub companies for HT. 50/50 mix I would definitely lean towards the dual SVS subs. The Depth really doesn't get much respect around these parts, especially at it's MSRP price range.

How much are you paying for the Martin Logan?


From the specs of the ML it would require a second subwoofer to provide the bass impact you would like to achieve in your room size. I own the SVS SB12, one of the main reasons I bought the subwoofer was because of its small footprint, I use it in my bedroom and love everything about it, its fantastic with movies and music. Audioholics has a in dpeth review on the SB12 which really helped make my decision easy.


What is your budget?

Thank you for the reply K5.


How does your Rythmik compare to the Depth or SVS that you had? That was also another option I was considering but they are a little farther out of budget for duals.


deepat,


The ML would cost me right around $1250 which is close to what dual SB12-NSDs retail for. I really don't want to go past $1200 for dual subwoofers.


I've also been curious to see if a servo-controlled subwoofer is that much better than a similar sealed design with a powerful amp.

I can tell you that the FV15HP is entirely a different animal. I have had quite the subwoofer journey, not as long or as expensive as many of the members here but I have completely impressed with my Rythmik.
