    Default Need help with Sub choice

    Thanks in advance for all your advice. I have $2000.00 in the budget to start replacing my HT that got a little wet. So far I've decided on TX-SR703 reciever,a pair of RTi-8's and either a Velodyne DPS-10 or SVS PB10-NSD. It's going in a 20 x 20 room with a cathedral ceiling that opens on one side to a 16 x 18 dining/foyer area with 9' ceiling. I'm not expecting to rock the house with this, but I need something better than the $40. boom box I'm using now. As money allows I'll upgrade. I can't audition the SVS sub locally so I'm looking for opinions on which sub to get.

    Thanks again

    The SVS PB10 can go much lower that the Velo DPS10.

    However, you may need a bigger sub for that room. Check around on prices for the Onk (ie onecall.com) and see if you can free up more cash for the biggest SVS you can afford.

    +1 on the SVS sub. I own a SVS PB12-PLUS and could not be happier. Good Luck.

    I would also vote the way of the SVS. If you don't mind used you might be able to pick up a larger sub for that size room. Keep your eyes open in the FS section, ebay, and mostly www.audiogon.com.

    Oh and welcome to the forums.

    -1 for the SVS. I used to have one and it just didn't blend into my room very well. I could always tell where it was when it hit in a movie, and it sounded boomy for music. I would demo the Velodyne DPS-10 and see if you like it. I ended up with a velodyne and am going to keep it. I am just not a big fan or ported subs.

    Thanks for the quick replys. I went to the SVS website and did some reading and I'm back with more questions. Is there a big difference between the ISD and NSD drivers? Would a 25-31 PCi or 20-39 PCi work better at filling the room. My use will be 80% music.

    Thanks Again

    The "+" models are definitely worth the extra coin. I ran a 25-31 PC+ in a large listening room, no problems at all.

    I have the SVS pb10-isd in my theater, which is 13'x24' and am pleased with the sound. For the money it is a great sub. It has good extension and a good overall frequency response. My room did require some acoustical treatments and bass traps to tame the response, but that is a property of the room and not the sub.

    According to the guys at SVSound, there is no markable performance difference between the 10 isd and nsd, just a few changes to the mounting baffle and they now make the drivers in house. However, there is supposed to be a performance difference between the 12 isd and nsd, thats why they were offering the 12 nsd to those who had purchased the 12 isd drivers.
