i need a sub for my HT
i already have
RTI6 as front, M10 as rear, CSIa4 as mid, Denon AVR789 and receiver now i need a sub.
i currently own Klipsch iFi 2.1 for my PC (RSX-3 + some random alluminum woofer, but the woofer sounds ok to me)
im not a huge bass fan but cannot tolerant no bass. I specifically prefer tight, articulated bass and hate boomy ones. I went to futureshop and bestbuy in Toronto to audited several different onez,
Polk PSW125, Klipsch Synergy 10'', some random JBL 12' (listed $399 CDN), PSW111 and Velodyne 15'.
heres r my short experience (cannt say its a review): Klipsch Synergy 10'' was in my least favor, its so boomy i cant hear anything. Polk PSW125 was slightly better but kinda disappointing to me for the money, not very tight. i like the JBL i think its somehow well balanced, tight and deep. Velodyne 15' was too lound, no way im gonna put in my apartment, when i turned the volume down, it sounds better than polk PSW125, deeper than JBL but not as tight as JBL.
then comes my personal winner PSW111, im really surprised on how well they perfome in music, very musical, blends in perfectly better than all ive listed, the closest was the JBL one.
i think it just me i think maybe i just like smaller subs. im sure DSW series will be better but i cannot afford untill i get another summer job next summer.
the only reason i didnt buy it is, i haven't heard PSW10, i would like someone heard both PSW10 & PSW111 to give me some opinion because i really like the PSW111 and its on sale ($259 CDN, but not extremely hot) but its a little overbudge for me. If PSW10 is as good it usually went on sale during boxing day for something like $99 CDN, which would be akiller deal for me. IF if its not as good ill probably just goona grab the PSW11 even its gonna hurt a bit.
they dont have PSW10 as demo wand not willing to do so ive no idea wut PSW10 sounds like.
oh by the way my living room is mid sized and i think ill never like huge bass. althought im brand new to D-I-Y HT but I bought my first sub back when I was 13 years old (Creative Cambridge soundworks 2.1).
can anyone explains why i like cheap subs better? :D
