The title speaks for itself. I was also considering the Epik castle but the SVS looks better, WAF. Help me decide?

From pure performance perspective, the Epik Castle is better than the PB12 plus. I recommend the Castle because you have a large room.


BTW, change your mistake in your title.

Ask your wife if the box look with wood side panels, (versus the 35 inch black cylinder), is worth putting out another $231. She's the one you have to please.


Show her pics on the net so she can see how different they look.


Performance wise it doesn't make very much difference.


This is really between you and your wife. No one else can tell you which one she thinks is better for the two of you.

Is Epik taking any new orders at this time?

no sorry i wasn't clear, the castle is a great sub but not great looking. I like the svs subs, a little smaller and the PB looks great in rosenut. I want to know the diff b/t the PC and PB. I expect the PB to have more output b/cthe bigger box, right. If they sound the same/similar it may be for saving the $$. similat = cannot tell diff unless side by side.

The difference in performance between the box vs. the cylinder is not significant. It may be barely measurable in favor of the box, but probably not audible.

that may solve it, the box looks nice but i wanted to spend $1000.00. The PC puts me right there. Still like the look of the box though. I may wait to catch a b-stock

Well, being a long time HSU customer, I personally can say that their customer service leaves a lot to be desired. And, SVS is regularly rated as good, many times better, given the same price points. Great customer service, too. But, there's lots of competition at or around the same price point.


Epik is good....if you can get one. AV123 MFW15 is another good below your price point. Ascend Acoustics sells the Rhythmic....again a little below your price point. Many here like those. If you're going that far, look at what Elemental Design offers. I've yet to hear a complaint about their subs (but it takes a while to get them as they're made to order).

Nope. All except the Conquest are out of stock.

He stated in his post no eD subs because they're too ugly.
