I am new to the forum and have purchased off e-bay a polk surround system with RTi8 fronts, Csi5 Center, RTi4 Surrounds, and RTi6 Rears. I have never owned a real sub-woofer and would like to purchase a good one for HT mainly, but some music too. I have been reading lots of forums posts about the best sub's for around $ 500. Tops on my list are SVS, Hue, and Elemental Designs. What would be the right fit with the Polk speakers I have listed above? Room size is 13 x 17 with 8 foot ceilings and open at one end. I don't want to overspend on a sub just a good match. Any advice would be great. Thanks.
I haven't purchased good audio equipment since just after college and kids or 25 years. So I have a long way to go in setting this new system up properly.
