Sob..my sub has gone to the great boom in the sky

Oh well, time for a new one. Contenders:

HSU VTF mk3 $509
SVS SB12-NSB $549
Empire Epik Legend single driver $499
ED A5S-300 $550
Sunfire SDS-12 $550

Tidbits to narrow the field:

Small room 12x16
One spot to put it. Front corner. Very little breathing room for it, i.e. 6-7 inch from any side is either a wall, wall/curtain, end of a couch or the TV stand.

Front main speakers are Axiom M22s

Other information available on request...

Recommendation and reasoning requested please

HSU and SVS are trusted names, and I can personally vouch for the folks at ED...those guys know how to build bass. keep in mind the price of the ED includes shipping.

Why not wait and see what the new SB subs from SVS are like before deciding as they are looking pretty special

Re: Sob..my sub has gone to the great boom in the sky

Wasnt the little SVS being replaced with an updated model, or did that already happen?

I would say all of those are very good performers and you might be hard pressed to ever discern much of a difference, so I would probably go with the least expensive Epik. They are very well reviewed.

Re: Sob..my sub has gone to the great boom in the sky

Well first email back for SVS. They only sell through a company in Canada, WITH ha hefty overhead $150 Canadian.

Epik doesn't seem to ship to Canada, Unless of course you are willing to void the warranty and setup your own shipping.

Rythmik is over the budget at $799

Still waiting on HSU and ED.

No opinions on the Sunfire?
