    Default Recommended Subs for LSiM 7.2 setup

    Just wondering what dual subs you would recommend using with the LSiM speakers. Not sure yet if I'm getting the bookshelf or towers yet. This would be a 7.2 channel config in a 15x21 room with 8' ceiling
    Thanks!

    Budget? We can spend about as much as you can afford - and more!

    Use: movies or music? If both what gets more usage?

    H9: If you don't trust what you are hearing, then maybe you need to be less invested in a hobby which all the pleasure comes from listening to music.

    JL Audio F113 is my recommendation (although budget is unknown).

    A nice pair of used Velodyne SPL-1200's would do the job nicely for both HT/2 channel. I'm speaking from experience here!

    You can get dsw micropro 3000's for 849 on weekends at newegg... I can't imagine you would ever play them at greater than 50% of their gain..They do great on ht applications and are ok for music... They look great

    Go with the 703's if you're going to get you some nice subs. You'll have the low end covered, and the 703's add a lot more punch to the midbass to liven it up.

    As far as budget, i was thinking along the lines of $800-1000 per subwoofer but it doesn't have to be that much, just something decent quality to evenly fill the bass of the theater room. Was going to put them both up front on near the front right and left speakers. Probably 70% movies, 30% music for now.

    Yeah, the 703's are what i would use unless there would be a good reason for me to justify getting the towers. Pretty big price difference.

    Hsu, SVS, was going to also recommend Epik but heard there are some issues there.

    REL is another good one as well as JL.

    These looked pretty nice but wasn't sure if two of them would be overkill:

    Nice.

    Overkill? Pfffft.

    That would be the definition of 'killer'

    I use a pair of Polk Micro-pro subs (8") in my HT system and am satisfied. I also just replaced an older Klipsch 10" sub with a new Polk 505 and like the lower range of the 12" unit. The Polk 505 has had a few bad reviews however for a well powered 12" unit with a warranty it is delivered for only $180. via Amazon. I like a lot of base with my movies so I run 4 smaller subs and now the new 12" Polk 505...when the Navy guys in Battle Ship blow up the Aliens it really rocks the house. As far as the "expensive" subs go I have shied away from them as I am not totally convince that 1 $1,500 sub sitting in one location can out perform my 4 or 5 sub configuration...just my way of doing things.

    I'm guessing you haven't heard a $1500-$2000 ID sub? Quality>Quantity.
