    Even though this is a HT forum and not a music forum, I thought a subwoofer question would be appropriate to this forum and audiogon/audioasylum.

    I'm upgrading my fronts to mid-sized towers with a center. My final purchase is pending the sale of my old system, but I was wondering about a matching sub (sorry I can't be mor specific with my speaker selection--they range anywhere from Swan 6.1's, Monitor Audio silver 5i & 10i, to Linn 5140s & 5120... I'm leaning in the favor of the Linns). My budget is somewhere between $4-600 (I REALLY need to stick closer to $500).

    My music/HT duties are an eschewed 90%/10%. I would like to integrate a lower bass system to my fronts and surrounds (I'm a big fan of four channel stereo mode).

    Here are my current candidates:
    Aperion Audio Intimus 10"
    SVS PCi 25-31
    Hsu VTF-2

    I live in the NYC area and would REALLY APPRECIATE IT if someone who has one of these subs would let me come over for an audition...otherwise can my fellow HTF's give some advice. I am favoring the Aperion Audio sub right now due to its size and aesthetics (I just want something musical that can do HT reasonably well).

    If size is not a factor the SVS 25-31 PCi is a wonderful sub that produces bass that most subs in its price range don't.
    I have had my PCi for about 3/4 weeks now and love it. I watched Road to Perdition yesterday and there is a scene with machine guns and it just shook the whole room...:b

    I tried to sign up on Audio Envy as an owner of dual SVS CS+ subs, we also have a working pair od CBM's from Ascend and an Aidre Rava ...

    However there is no provision in the sign up for anyone in the Caribbean??? Who shoul I talk too? Or does no one care?

    Not to mention I had to deal with almost 40% in duties and taxes ... However, it was still worth it! [​IMG]

    I have the Aperion sub and it is great. It is very musical, high quality, and looks great. The 12" is competitive with the SVS box sub. The 10" sub is hands down the best 10" sub on the market. Read the review at www.cheaphometheater.com. Still, I would spend the extra 100$ to get the 12" if you think you'll benefit from the low bass extension.
