    i was fixing to order a new 20-39 plus but then i ran accross a guy selling a Klipsch RSW-15 for the same price.
    I never heard the 20-39 plus but i have heard the Klipsch and know that thing can seiously pound.

    what should i do??

    At first, if you put those subs side-by-side you would think the Klipsch is better. More intense, more thud.

    But after listening to the SVS for a while (and hearing things fall off the shelves in the other room) you will realize that the SVS is a lot smoother, less 'thud' and more 'Honey, why is the cat's fur all falling out?' from all the low-frequency.

    People who have gotten the SVS to replace some other sub have initially not been impressed. The boom/thud/thunk they were used to is missing. But after a week they hooked up their old sub in place of the SVS and were kind of shocked at how rough the sound was.

    Dont get me wrong. An enhanced-boom is part of the ride of a good adventure movie. But once you get used to the more linear response of the SVS subs, other subs remind you of the boom-cars you sometimes hear at a stop-light.

    I had a KSW-12 sub, later replaced by powered DefTech towers. These still exist, but the subs are turned off in favor of my 20-39 in the corner.

    I agree with Bob. A friend of mine has a RSW-15 and a original SVS 20-39 PC, not the PCi or PC+. If either of us had one choice, we'd both take the SVS over the Klipsch, it's much tighter. Personally, I opted for the PB-2+. [​IMG]

    I think you're going in the right direction for size. My room is ~6000 cubic feet and open to other areas. There have been a few instances when the 2+ has had me worried.[​IMG]
