    I'm looking to get the best and most bass that $2,500

    can buy.

    I want bass that will blow me away when I want to be blown away. And bass that is tight and clean, as well as deeper than deep............

    My room is 22 x 18 x 9

    Any suggestions??????????

    Regards,

    Just one suggestion. SVS SS w/S1000 amp and eq. Does that about cover it? [​IMG]

    That's easy. Dual SVS CS Ultra Package, or perhaps the SVS SS package if you want the looks.

    Geo,
    I agree with going the SVS route, but you can send me the $2,500 and just enter the SVS giveaway contest[​IMG]
    I'm positive you'll win. [​IMG]
    Hey, I had to try.

    Thanks for the suggestions......

    One question, Wouldn't a sub like the Velodyne

    HGS-18 with it's 18" woofer go deeper than even a pair of the SVS CS Ultras?

    Regards,

    Hi Geo,

    I doubt you'd be sorry with a HGS18,very few people seem to feel the need for more output than the big Velodyne flagship can offer.

    There's currently a big subwoofer comparison being done that includes the new Klipsch rsw15,the HGS18,and a dual CS_U/S1000 package.(among others).

    I don't think we'll see the review for several weeks(or even a month or two)...but I'm very confident the overall review will clearly indicate the $2295 SVS package outguns the HGS18.(handily I believe)

    How large is your room?

    One word, Vandersteen.

    For that sum, you can buy two subs from "The Best Value in Highend" [Stereophile quote and they talking about everything, not just speakers!]. But don't trust Big Ed, check out the subwoofer special edtion Widescreen Review put out. Trust Dr. Boom. You will want to look into the "video" version for your .1.

    You'd get two three hundred watt discrete of USA amps. Not rated to push a test needle at 40% distortion, do I have too name names? That's six hundred watts and two power supplies.

    Six active slot loaded 6 1/2" driver's. Very fast, very musical and the equal of two 15" drivers. And two passive 12" for extra extention.

    Try and listen to the Energy MicroStar MS12.1 - hair raising but not tiresome. Deep and loud but tiny box.

    You could almost buy two of them in that budget range too.

    Hey!,
    check out earthquake subs...I never heard of them but used
    them in an installation. Man, these units can put out SPL at very low frequencies(18HZ). Check out the following review...
