    Default Dual Side Firing 10" or Front 12"?

    I am looking at purchasing a new subwoofer. I am stuck between the PSW505 and the PSW650. I have a 20' x 15' living room. Any suggestions?

    DIY subs might be (retardedly) difficult for a beginner. SVS gets my vote.

    If you want to go DIY and you aren't very knowlegeabe or handy, I think PartsExpress has a $350 sub that comes in kit form. All the stuff is there, and the cabinet is allready finished.

    I first bought a PSW450 (front-firing 12") to go with my system.... it did not impress me. I noticed some distortion with this one when I tried to push it to perform at the same volume as my front speakers were capable of. I did not have a big living room and was staying in an apartment with a short ceiling so the bass was even amplified by the echoes off the wall, yet there was not enough boom for me. After reading reviews I upgraded to the PSW650... and boy do I love this one:D The larger sub will especially come in handy in that huge living room. The sound from the dual subwoofers is so much more full, and I just can't push it hard enough. Not to mention the shiny finish, the volume control on the front of the sub, and the fact that it automatically turns itself on. I love it. Look around to find a good deal on one, I bought mine off of the classifieds in audioreview for $405!

    Anyway, buy a PSW650, you won't regret it.

    p.s. If you are still interested in a 12" front firing, I still have that PSW450.
