In a few weeks I will be obtaining my sources, all but completing my audio project. Only one thing left would stand, the sub-woofer.
Until recently, I have been relatively secure with the thought of purchasing the SVS PB-2. But for 1,250, the small size of my room, and where I live, it may not be the wisest purchase to make. Im thinking more with a "wouldnt it be cool" attitude, vice the "is it really necessary" attitude.
I then return back to the original idea of the SVS PCi-25. Every review I read seem fairly enthusiastic about this piece of equipment. The majority of reviews by professionals and non-professional's seem to be uni-laterall focused on the deph and loudness of the sub, vice its ability to create bass with finese and grace. The majority of reviewer's also seem to be more focused with HT projects, vice critical listening two channel apps. Those who are seem to describe this sub as impressive, yet "boomy".
This is leaving me just a tad concerned.
I am eye-balling the Phase Tech Power 12. I had a chance to listen to this, and was very impressed with its accuracy and ability to just disappear in the room.
Has anyone had the chance to compare the two? SVS owners, I could really appreciate some feedback here. What rigs are you currently running with your svs? And if you have had a chance to compare your SVS to Phase tech...which models, and impressions please?
