Ok, so I went an heard a few subs and decided so far I like the paradigm ps1000 best. I also have mini monitors, so if it really does make a difference, they should blend really well. The problem is I want to wiegh all my options, so I need to hear an equivlent svs sub. The probelm is I can't go to a dealer to hear one. I know I could get the svs sub and return it within 45 days, but I would still have to pay shipping. The paradigm dealer near me allows me to take a sub home for 7 days to try it out. I was thinking I could get both and try them in my home, then return the one I like the least. However, the paradigm is $100 cheaper (U.S.) in Canada, and since I am near the border, I would want to go there to get it. So if I bought the sub hear to try out, I would return it no matter what. I feel sort of bad buying a sub from a shop knowing I am going to return it. Since I can't make decisions for myself, what do you guys think? O, and which svs would be equivlent to the paradigm ps1000?
