A friend of mine wants to get a sub and the sales guy at the A/V store wants him to get the Monitor audio RXW12 and I think he would be better getting the SVS PB12 plus My personal opinion is the PB12 will outperform the RXW but what are your opinions?
I suspect that the above mentioned subs would preform better than the SVS PB12 NSD?

Thats what I thought, Thanks.
The issue here is the PB12 NSD and the SB12Plus are almost the same price but the 12plus had a more powerful amp but is in a sealed box where as the NSD is ported, I'm confused as to what would be a better fit for his situation.
His theater room is fairly small 12' wide, 15' long but is fully open to another larger space at the back with lots of angles and odd layout so I want to make sure he has enough oomph in the area he wants it to be.

But that still leaves the main question unanswered as to what sub he should go with? The PB12 NSD or the SB12Plus. Suggestions?

You can never have enough bass :whistling: the better the sub the more headroom he will have so my choice would most certainly be the PB12+ :T
Sadly the PB12 Plus is out of his price range.

About $600, Both the PB12NSD and the SB12 are under $1000

George, For SVS products you can get them from Sonic Boom audio in Ontario. This saves you some of the extra charges you incur if you were to buy directly from SVS in the US.
