    Default Did tons of searching!!!

    What I have found I think is great and am wondering what others think as well... I have already bought the RTi8's from Fry's and I have the DSW Pro 500. But then really got hot and heavy with the searching today and found the following items:

    CSi5 Brand new in Cherry for $268
    FXi3's Brand new in Black for $98 each
    PSW 505 Brand new for $268 to replace the DSW Pro 500 that I paid $500 for!

    Well what does everyone think if I run this set-up with my RTi8's and an Onkyo 805?

    Default Is it worth $500

    The DSW Pro 500 is rated at 200 watts RMS where the PSW 505 is rated at 300, also the 500 is a 10 inch sub vs. the 505's 12 inch. So in the end is all the extra stuff the new 500 gives you worth that much more or is the 12 inch with 300 watts better then the 10 inch with 200 watts? Especially with the set-up I am considering!

    The range of the DSW Pro 500 and PSW 505 are almost identical, so unless you currently have the volume on your subwoofer jacked up I don't think you'll get anything more out of the PSW 505 (as mentioned before the DSW Pro 500 has some extra features the PSW 505 doesn't since it's a newer line). I believe they are phasing out the PSW line and putting the DSW line in it's place, which is why you can get good deals on the PSW line if you can find them. Is the extra money for the DSW Pro 500 over the 505 worth it? Probably not. But if you already have the DSW Pro 500 why bother. I just got a DSW Pro 500 recently and don't even have the volume up half way. If you want to upgrade, go for the DSW Pro 600.

    DSW Pro 500
    Overall Frequency Response 23Hz - 160Hz
    Lower -3dB Limit 30Hz
    Upper -3dB Limit 125Hz

    PSW 505
    Overall Frequency Response 23Hz - 160Hz
    Lower -3dB Limit 28Hz
    Upper -3dB Limit 125Hz
