I have the Klipsch Reference Series 7 speakers (RF-7, RC-7, and RS-7) hooked up to a Harman Kardon AVR 8500 A/V receiver. My room is about 11 x 14. My budget is sort of low for a subwoofer for now so I was looking at the SVS PB10-NSD. Any opinions/comments on the subwoofer? Would it blend in well with the rest of my system? Some people are saying my speakers are too much for the PB10-NSD to handle. Any other subwoofers I should consider that are around $500? Thanks

That doesn't really make sense. It is possible for your room to be too big, or too much, for your subwoofer. But as long as your subwoofer is big enough for your room and your speakers are big enough for your room you should be able to calibrate them to blend very well. Is your room sealed? If so, I think the PB10 would be sufficient for your room and would make a very good choice for you.

The room is sealed off expect for a small passage way on one of the walls which leads to the bathroom. Other than that, it's completely sealed off.

If you can stretch your budget to $550 you could get a PB12-NSD B-Stock. The PB10 will likely be enough for moderate to somewhat high levels but might strain at reference levels (levels easily reachable by your extremely efficient Klipsch speakers). The PB12-NSD would likely reach reference levels in your room without straining.

I know this is the unofficial SVS hangout but...

If you can stretch your budget to $599++ consider the soon to be released MFW-15 (no official product listing yet, you'd need to call the guys at AV123.com). Here's some info - http://av123forum.co...ead.php?t=15788

That Elemental sub looks very similar in output and FR to the PB12-NSD in a slightly different configuration (down-firing driver, front-firing port) and is likely a great value.

The SVS PB-10 can be had used for $320 + shipping(As much as $80. It is a beast). I was trying to choose between the ED and the SVS also. At $395 shipped for the SVS I just could not resist. I don’t think the ED subs are as easy to find used are they?

The ED subs are pretty new and I doubt you're going to find any/many used ones out there. I was speaking in terms of new vs new price.

The A2-300 is $350 new and I believe ranked equal to the PB10 in the Craigsub ranking on AVS forum. http://www.avsforum.....&page=55&pp=30
