Recommendation for a Sub

Setting up a HT (5.1)...need recommendation on the Sub. Shortlisted the following:

SVS PB-1000
HSU VTF-2 MK4
Power Sound Audio XV15se (it does exceed my budget)
Rythmik LV12R

Other information: Room size 14x16 x 10, Dedicated Media room. Usage - 70% HT/30% Music. Remaining time used for gaming by kids.

Have you considered used? I have had great luck buying used equipment and maybe you can get a pair for close to the same price if you are patient and watch the classifieds. You may get lucky and find something local.

For 2200 cu-ft, sealed, I'd go with a sealed woof myself. The XS15se would extend down to the 5hz to 9hz range here. Corner loaded, say 6-8ft from the seating(?) you should be in the 115-124dB range over most of the operating bandwidth.

Looking at your shortlist I would go XS15se for movies no question.

I would look on the hts classifieds. Also if you wait for b stock sales from psa, Tom has some very good Deals there also. Craigslist is always an option. If you are patient you will find some very good deals

With the list you have none of the subs will be a mistake.

SVS and Hsu probably in business the longest. Both highly regarded.

Rythmik has a good reputation too. Does the sub you are looking at there have the servo control?
If yes that might be the factor to go that route.

Don't know much about the Power Sound.
