I have the Onkyo 604 with the Fluance AV-SC Center and a pair of the Fluance AV-F3 Towers. (I will add the Fluance AV-BP2 Sattilites once I get the extra $100 Posted Image ). I want to add an inexpensive but decent quality sub. I have been suggested the Velo VX-10 , Velo VRP1000 , AV123 X-Sub , HSU STF-1 , BIC V80 , or Either Fluance Sub

So just give me your vote and reason... Thanks!



P.S. I estimate the room is 15x 10 but isn't closed off... Here's the plan...

I don't want to shake the walls but I would like as good quality as I can get.

You should add the Acoustech H-100 into your list.

I would vote for either the H-100 or the X-Sub.

Well, because the room isn't closed off, it's more like 15X30. Regardless of which sub you choose, you won't have enough oomph to fill that space.

If this will be the place where your HT will reside for the forseeable future, I'd choose none of the above and save your pennies for at least a PB12.

So the OP comes in here and lists several subs in the <$400 range and you suggest $2600 worth of subwoofers and a $500 equalizer?

Of course he does - he's a shill for SVS Posted Image

To be honest - this kind of posting IMO really hurts the SVS brand. If the sub is "so freaking good" then why do people always suggest "Dual" subs? No matter your answer Sherrard - I read a response like that as "a single sub is not good enough to give you impactful bass for your room size - go with dual". Sorry, for that price - I'd go with a Sig Servo.
