    Default PSW505 or Klipsch SW-450

    Thinking about swapping out my PSW110. The PSW505 is going for $250 on newegg and the SW450 is going for $200 @ BB. It will be used for 50/50 HT and the other half for music. I like to listen to a lot of Rap and Hip/Hop. Which one will be better for my use? They seem similar besides their size...here is the break down:

    PSW505
    SIZE: 12"
    Peak Output: 460W
    Continuous Output: 300W
    Range: 23-160hz

    SW450
    SIZE: 10"
    Peak Output: 450W
    Continuous Output: 200W
    Range: 28-120hz

    In this case I'd go with whatever is cheapest but you should keep in mind that lower end Klipsch subs are SLOPPY on MUSIC....they're pretty good for HT. But they're flabby and slow on tight bass. However if you listen to a lot of rap.....most of that bass is not REFINED or TIGHT bass so you may be OK there!

    +1 for the PSW505. I haven't heard the Klipsch, but I do have the 505 and it blows me away. Very tight on the bass for music (even rap ;)) and for HT it does awesome as well.

    Where are you seeing the SW-450 @ BB for $200? It's showing everywhere as $450 for me.

    It was at the store, showed it right there on the shelf. I'll have to go back and double check
