How do the JBL S120P II and Klipsch KSW 15 compare with an SVS Pci?
In that price range, I like the Hsu VTF-2.
Adire Rava, $430 delivered. Pretty hard to beat.
Have you thought about DIY?
I really dont want a DIY, since I have no experience in this area. I just want the best sub hand down in this price range..off the shelf. Any others to consider?
You don't really have to do anywork with a DIY speaker. Just e-mail Brian at www.rutledgeaudiodesign.com he will let you know what he can do. I just picked mine up yesterday. I am more than happy with it.
The best subs at 500 are the hsu vtf-2 and the aperion audion 10". I had the 10" aperion and it was great. If you care about looks, it is definitly the way to go. The Klipsh and JBL subs are way inferior. The cheapest SVS solution will best everything mentioned so far but cost at least 700 when it's all said and done. For 600, I think the aperion 12" is the way to go. That's what I have now.
I would go with the Adire Rava as well.
I agree with those who have said that at $400 the Rava is worth considering.
Thanks guys! Keep em coming. I would like to make a decision in the next couple of days.
At $600, I’d go with the Rocket UFW-10. Listened to this in Dallas and it is very fine at the price. And the cabinet work in unmatched in this price range.
I am about 9/10 sold on the Adire Rava...any other last minute contestants?!?
I like Rocket UFW-10's spec.
Another candidate is Outlaws's LFM-1, 12"/350W/115dB 20~100hz/under $600.
Me too. My SVS Plus model will play louder(and should, since it is nearly double the price), but the VTF-2 sounds every bit as good in my smallish 12x13 room.
If you do not want to go the DIY route, the Adire Rava would be my suggestion.
That price range. Hands down, get the Adire Rava.
So you are all saying the Adire Rava is hands down better than an Hsu VTF-2?
I would disagree if you care more about home theater performance than music.
I'm just getting a feel for my new RAVA. From what I can see, it is INCREDIBLY tight and tuneful. A very well designed sub indeed, especially for music. For movies, it probably will have less slam than than the VTF2, but that wasn't too much of an issue with me. A small problem is that in auto-mode when watching DirecTV, for instance, the sub does not sense the signal and turn on. Doesn't happen if there is sufficient bass information being fed in. However, you can turn the sub to the on position and leave it there as many on the forum have done. It draws about the same power as a lightbulb while idling. Get it! You won't be sorry!
