Re: Rythmik LV12R Subwoofer Discussion Thread

vertigo_2_20 - What you have been hearing is correct. There is little to no chance of you being able to pressurize 8,000+ cubic feet with a single or even dual 12" subwoofers.

I would suggest dual Rythmik FV15HP or dual PSA XV15 at minimum, with an eye to adding one or two more in the future. Or as Jman suggested, dual 18" subs.

Feel free to start a thread here in the Home Audio Subwoofers forum to get some more ideas and recommendations.

My final question is since I watch most of my content from Netflix, Hulu, and mp4 rips of my movies/tv shows, and therefore the audio is compressed and likely lacking much of the LFE content of a blu-ray, would I be wasting my money on a high-end sub setup?
Subs greatly enhance my Netflix experience, I would miss them if they were gone!

Re: Rythmik LV12R Subwoofer Discussion Thread

I started a new thread which I was about to do anyway since I felt like I was hijacking Jman's review thread. I've updated it based on the info I've gathered from you guys and a more in-depth comparison of the options so far.

Re: Rythmik LV12R Subwoofer Discussion Thread

I feel the pain of a large room. I'm trying to figure out what to do with ~6500 Cu Ft. (glad I don't have 8,000...no offense ).

So based on another excellent JMAN review, I was sold on the RV12R, so I contacted Rythmic today and one of their techs said 2 RV12Rs would work in my space. So I look at JMAN's review again this evening and...oh, those are BIG subs. WAF is going to be an issue! I don't know what to do now...

Unfortunately big rooms mandate big subs, or a lot of smaller subs. There's really nothing that can be done about that I'm afraid - it's the nature of the beast. You could get a pair of smaller sealed subwoofers, but they would need to be powerful (which means expensive). For example, a pair of Rythmik E15HP's might work, but they cost more. And the size isn't really all that different. Given how large your room is I think ported is still the better option.

Re: Rythmik LV12R Subwoofer Discussion Thread

Yeah that is the downside for sure, but worth it if you like the open floor plan. I should have measured my old VA-1020x prior to posting and compared the measurements. Your are right, it's really not that much bigger...it sure looked a lot bigger due to its' shape. The VA is more square (~19x19x17). The LV12R is narrower, taller, and a bit deeper...and yeah it does look a bit generic, which may another WAF issue. I guess I need to make a decision and run with it, then take the verbal abuse :-)

Yup, Always easier to ask for forgiveness then to get permission.

I'm going to be ordering an LV-R12 in the next couple of weeks. I'm getting so excited about having a sub that will extend into the 20Hz region.

So that's the one you ultimately decided on? I think you'll be pleasantly surprised by what it's capable of. For the $$ it's certainly hard to beat.

For about $70 more than the SVS PB-1000 shipped to my address, it was difficult not to go for it. The hardest part is the "the waiting"....sounds like a Tom Petty song.

After you have it broken in and tuned be sure to come back and post your thoughts. I'm certain others will find it beneficial for an owner to comment on his experience as well.
