I currently have a velodyne SPL-800r and it just not cutting it. I really like the looks of the klipsch RT-10D but some say its not as impressive as others similar in size. I have a large living room approximately 25' x 50' but half is the kitchen. Where should I be leaning, I want to stay below $2000?

You'll never fully pressurize that size room for $2k unless you DIY a sub system. Commercially you can improve on the Velo (easily) with multiple ported subs. If your intent is to keep the Velo, a pair of these would help to gain quite a bit of output and some low end extension as well as smooth out the response in such a large room. You'll even have enough left over for a DCX to set up the subs which with multiples is important.

If you have an adjacent room and a sawz-all and some basic carpentry skills, a $2k IB system would best $5k worth of commercial gear....and scare the hell out of you!

Im not looking to turn this into a full on HT. I just want some good sounding bass for movies mainly. The little velo is ok for TV but i need more for movies. I have an identical velodyne in my bedroom which sounds decent so I hooked them together in my living room but I still need some more. I did buy a supercube III for my bedroom two days ago and tried it out in my living room first which sounded much better but now it barely even makes a sound for some reason, never even put it to the test yet.
I have been looking at the supercube reference and a svs pb-13 ultra. Thanks for the quick replies. Pretty new to this, I had a professional installer do everything the first time but I want more of everything so Im upgrading and doing it myself.


My upgraded setup:

Pioneer Elite VSX-01TXH

Klipsch WF-35 fronts and center

Klipsch in ceiling surrounds

Fujistu 63" Plasma

The sub doesn't care that the kitchen is not part of your HT room, it is all just open space. You may want to look into near field placement like I did when I had a very large space to fill. You just need a space for the sub/s near where you sit. If you only have 8' ceilings, you still are at 10k cf. That is a big area to fill.

Is there a way to wirelessly send out signal to a sub 20' away from the receiver or is a cable the only way? I dont really feel like routing cable through the ceiling and down walls near an outlet.

There are wireless xmitters and recievers, but not much talk about how well they work. HSU has built in wireless receivers in the ULS-15 and a 4 channel xmitter and they seem to be working well.

Since you're not likely to get much room gain down low, probably. Depends on how the sub rolls off at the bottom.
