    Default Looking for recommendations

    So right now I have a Polk rt3000p. Problem is I think it's starting to have some issues and it seems like I will need to send it in for service. I'm not sure whether or not the problem can be fixed, but let's assume it can and it's somewhere around $100 to fix it.

    I've been considering just buying a new sub for the past week or two, and my budget is generally somewhere around $400 for what I would spend max on a new sub. The 2 that have caught my eye are the Klipsch rw-12d and the Polk dswpro 660wi. I've seen the Klipsch on sale at newegg for $350, and the Polk for $400.

    Which route would you recommend I take? Repair the rt3000p or just pick up one of the newer subs? If the rt3000p is definitely a better sub than the other 2, I would probably send it off for service. But if the newer subs are better, I would rather just sink that ~$100 into the budget for a new one.

    $100? Fix them. The RT3000p sub module is a great piece. You MIGHT find something in that range that digs a little deeper, but it isn't going to sound as good as the 3000 otherwise.

    I have had a few recommendations for the Klipsch from some audio friends in the business.

    I'd say if it is really around $100 fix them if you are happy with the sound. If not, I would continuously search craigslist or local classifieds for a used SVS, HSU, etc. You can sometimes find GREAT deals on lightly used higher end gear on CL. I would personally rather spend $300-400 on a used SVS than any new klipsch or polk. IMO
