It's for a relatively small living room (11-12' x 16'). Right now I have an Onkyo 608 receiver, Linn Ninka fronts, Linn Majik centre and a pair of older PSB rears. The sub is the last piece of the puzzle and I'm trying to get a sense of what's best in this range.


Suggestions?



Thanks!

There are many.


Do you care how it looks? Do you want Dual Subs?


HSU, Epik, eD, Emotiva, Lava, SVS to start.

Epik Legend has my vote, but HSU, SVS, and eD all have great subs.

I would go for the Outlaw Audio LFM-1 Plus, Hsu Research VTF2 mk3, or Elemental Designs A3-300. Those guys are the output kings of under 600 shipped, and they have terrific sound quality too.

Looking for a single sub as space is a concern. Looks don't really matter.

What's your usage? Size requirements? Specific color or finish?

Usage: 30% music, 70% Movies. As I mentioned above, looking for a single sub and size, color and finish aren't a huge concern. Though if picking from a group of relative equals I'd probably go for the most compact in size.

And one other criteria that is starting to turn into a concern - they have to be able to ship to Canada.


So Epik is out and HSU mentions they do in their FAQ, but no option to in their order form...

You have to contact HSU for a quote. It seems they have been shipping quite a few of the new subs to Canada.

Thanks. I will certainly check that out.

SVS makes great subs and they ship to Canada. They have a couple of different subs just within your price range that are good.

So it seems to be shaping up to be a choice between the HSU VTF 2.3 or the SVS SB12-NSD.


Thoughts as to how they compare?

Also CHT will ship to Canada as well. You could get the 10.2 or the newly announced 12.1. Not sure when the 12.1 will be out but maybe within the next month or so...
