Hi,


A newbee to this subject and whole audio set up and will appreciate any suggestions you can give me.


i have a 15X15X9 family room with one side fully open to living room. Normally i watch 50/50 movies and music. but If asked to pick one over other, i will pick musical bass over movie bass.


My budget will be around $800.


any suggestions about where i should start looking?


One OPtion i have is to go with KeF sub(psw2500 or psw3500) that comes with speakers.

$800, I would look at SVS or Hsu. Find a model you like. Both of these brands generally outperform retail brands dollar for dollar and usually by a wide margin.

Then you may want to look harder at SVS than Hsu. I will probably buy the Hsu VTF-3 MK3 because of performance/price ratio, but I sure wish it was as nice looking as the SVS subs in Rosenut.

In your price range, I would check out these 2:

Rockemsockem has given you two excellent suggestions. The ACI subs have long been a favorite among Magnepan owners who are notoriously fickle when it comes to "musical" subs.


The SB12-Plus has only been out a few months but has garnered high praise from those who have listened to it thus far.


Just to add some more food for thought AV123 has B-Stock ULW-12 's in gloss piano black for $799. The primary reason for the price difference is because they are without the R-DES auto EQ that is normally included. It still has a manual PEQ that will allow you to compensate for in-room peaks.
