My wife took one look at the SVS cylinder subs and said no way, not a chance, forget about it. In fact, she is really adamant about purchasing a smaller sub (no big box subs like Paradigm's Servo 15 allowed in the living room, doh!). I am looking at the following subs and am wondering if anyone can provide some input on them: REL Q150E ($1099 MSRP), REL Strata III ($1295 MSRP), Velodyne HGS 10 ($1500 MSRP), B&W 650 S3 ($700 MSRP) and HSU VTF2 ($450 MSRP). I can probably spend around a $1000, maybe $1200. I am not limiting myself to looking at just these subs. In fact, If anyone has any suggestions for other small subs, or a better value smaller sub, I would greatly appreciate it. The room size for my system is 16 x 14 x 8. My speakers are: B&W 603 S2 (fronts) B&W 601 S2 (rears) B&W LCR6 (Center) My receiver is: Yamaha RX-V1200 Once again, any ideas/suggestions are greatly appreciated.
