Let me start out by saying that I hate to be the one always asking questions and never giving answers. But here I am, again, in search of help. Home theater is new to me, however, if any of you need help with your computers, I would be more than happy to offer advice :)
Again, I feel terribly stupid to have to ask, but after looking at many other forums, I figured that maybe someone here on the polk forum would have a similar setup and could offer some advice.
I need a subwoofer, and I have done some looking. There are a few brands that I have been watching for, including: SVS, HSU, and M&K. I don't want to spend more than $800, and I don't mind buying used.
The room is 20 x 18 x 9.
Speakers: LSi25,LSiC, LSiFX, LSiFX
Preamp: Emotiva DMC-1
Amplifier: B&K 7270 Series II
I am in for a clarity, not just loud noise, which is why M&K's THX certification attracted me (i'm probably stupid for even caring about the badge). My primary use for this setup will be movies. I, of course, will listen to music from time to time, likely classic rock and movie soundtracks.
I guess what I really need to know is what size sub is enough, and what is too much for a room of this size.
My only problem is there is only one place I can put the sub, because I have run the wire through the walls, and the sub cannot be in any walkway, or in front of any doors. The placement will be on the left 20 foot about 5 feet away from the main speakers. Also, have I gone wrong with the LSi25's?
And thanks in advance for *all* advice/comments
