I'm looking to purchase the Definitive Technology Prosub 800 to compliment my Def Tech Mythos SSA-50 soundbar.

There are many other subs out there, but it's exhausting to research them all. I like the idea of a sealed box w/ 8" woofer and passive bass radiator instead of a ported box to keep the size down. Having the matching brand may not be necessary, but is a plus for me.

Is this sub any good, or just not worth it?

Have you heard Definitive's subs compared to SVS to make the claim?

If the Prosub80 is no good, how about the HSU STF-2 vs. SVS SB1000?

I didn't make a claim or a comparison.

But FWIW my first sub was a DefTech ProSub 200TL that had over-rated specs (confirmed by the company) and that was easily outperformed by a smaller, less-powerful Energy S10.3.

IIRC, the STF-2 is a good sub and that should have more bottom-end output than the SB-1000. But you appear to be looking for a compact, sealed sub ("I like the idea of a sealed box ... instead of a ported box to keep the size down") and the STF-2 is not that.

If this is for the townhouse with the room being 18x22x9, I wouldn't even bother with any 8" "subwoofer". That's roughly 3500cuft, and it won't give much meaningful output. I've also seen def tech specs not hold up under testing. Not good value.

I pulled the trigger on a Martin Logan Dynamo 300 subwoofer. The reviews are all good. The price is perfect to compliment my soundbar. It should be here on Fri 2/26. If I upgrade I'll replace the soundbar with mini monitors and a better sub.
