    Question Subwoofer recomendation

    After deciding to upgrade my ol'Pro Logic HT, and many $$$ later, I now have a decent set up, but am lacking a subwoofer, and would like some opinions.
    New speakers are RTi70s/CSi40 in front with FXi30's in the rear.
    Receiver - Denon AVR-3803.
    DVD player - Denon DVD-1600.

    HT/living room is not very large, 18'x12' with a small 6'x5' entry way behind the left front speaker. The floors are hardwood. Space for the sub is tight, so an extremely large enclosure will not work. The best locations for a sub in this room are
    1) - behind the right front speaker in the corner if the sub is very small (12" to 14" square)
    2) - along the wall in front of the left front speaker
    3) - in the left rear corner of the room
    There is a little leeway in speaker placement (but not much).

    I would like to say price is no object, but I would be lying. I can currently afford something in the $500 price range, again with a little leeway.

    The brand really doesn't matter, sorry Polk..., I want something that won't overpower my room, that sounds good with both music and movies. Not too much to ask, right?

    All opinions welcome! Thanks in advance in answering this newbie's question.

    Its a little over 500 bucks...... but recieves nothing but absolute praise for the price. A few gentlemen here own this beauty.

    edit: My apologies ------- I failed to read over that you were limited on space.

    In that case, Russ has pointed you in the right direction for some cheap, yet potent subs.

    The new series of Polk subs seem to be quite small and potent from what I have seen/read (havent heard for myself though).

    Space being an issue, and staying in your budget, give the following a look-see.

    Adire Audio Rava, very musical and hard hitting sub:

    HSU is also a giant-killer in its price range, check out the VTF-2:

    Parts Express has the Dayton Titanic kits, great subs at twice the asking price.

    10 inch version:

    I have a Yamaha YST SW320 I got from Crutchfield 250watt built in amp it's just right for my apartment. Well that's as far as I'm concerned. Don't ask my downstairs neighbor though. I think it was in the $300-400 price range. Worth looking into. Good Luck

    The SVS only takes up an 18" diameter footprint. It's actually pretty easy to place in a room, vertical space issues not withstanding. Also, the HSU cylinder subs have an even smaller footprint than the SVS.

    Nope, it's not ATCvenom, just a lost soul seaching for bass.

    I want to thank everyone who gave their recommendations. I am leaning towards an SVS 25-31 PCi. I think I will be able to make it fit.

    I think Dr. Johnson would agree with your choice.

    Well, if you do bag an SVS, you pretty much found 'the last word' in bass.

    For a few more coins and if you don't mind used, I'd search for one of the Sunfire subs, the Jr. and so forth. Very small, very powerful
