Hi Everyone:

 

I currently have a Polk setup that includes a RTiA9, CSiA6, FXiA6, and RTIiA3 to complete a 7.0.  Here is where I need your expertise, which of the following would give the most improvement to my home theater experience:

 

1. SVS PB-1000 x 2 ($949)

2. SVS PB-2000 x 1 ($799)

3. Emotiva XPA-2 ($899)

4. Emotiva XPA-5 ($999)

 

My Loft (aka poor man's HT Room) is 12x24x8...the back is the stairs to downstairs.  Thank you in advance!!!

if 1000.00 is your budget i like the dual PB-1000"s or even dual Rythmik LV12's for slightly more. the nice thing about SVS is the trade in policy, so you can always upgrade if the PB1000's are not enough.
Thank you basshead.  I will look into the Ryhmik LV12's too.  Are you on the side of AMPS being beneficial or a marketing expenditure (lack of a better word)?

I would go for dual Hsu VTF2 mk4s or dual Rythmik LV12rs. You might also look into dual Reaction BPS 212 Turbos. I think those would be better performers give give your system a bigger boost than the upgrades you are looking at.

I would refrain from recomending the Reaction subs until we know more about them. It was only 10days after launch the company was revising the BPS212 with the Turbo option and shortly after discontinued the original 212.

That was my original budget but I'm slowly increasing the budget to $1500.  What about going with a dual PB-2000 or a PB12-NSD since these would be less than $1500?  Would either of these options fill my room and blend well with my RTIA system?

I meant to say PB12-Plus DSP and not PB12-NSD...

I run 3 PSA XV-15's with my RTI-A system and they blend fine. I do not believe it matters what main speakers you have in relation to the type of sub you purchase. The key is properly setting up and integrating the subs. To do it right a sub crawl is a minimum and measuring gear is even better combined with a weekend worth of free time.


That being said both of those options you mentioned would be much good choices.

Do you have these subwoofers? I've been leaning more towards these since you've mentioned it a few weeks back...since they are great values!

At the risk of sounding like everyone else on every thread of this type, can you spend just a little more?

Actually more towards the PB12-NSDs are what I am looking at.

I have a PB-1000, from the outlet after the 2000's were released. 

It replaced a RW12-d, and I just built two (thread coming).

Hard to beat the trial period and upgrade policy, whatever model you select.

At this level, it's hard to make a bad choice.
