    I am thinking of adding discrete L/R subwoofers to my surround channels for multichannel full range DVD-A. I high pass all channels for movie material.
    I am using 2 pairs of Def Tech BPVX's for surrounds and am looking to extend the lower end a bit.
    I am tring to stay below $1000 for the pair locally.
    How does the PS-1000 perform with music.
    I can also pick up the Mirage FRX-S12 for roughly the same price.
    Are these 2 models good canidates for the job?

    I have had the PS-1000 for several years now and I am very satisfied with the quality of bass I get for music and HT. It is fine for a regular size room or bedroom. It blends fine with my other Paradigm speakers. The sound is clean and smooth.

    first of all i must say i don´t have a PS-1000...i have a PS-1200, but however they are quite similar except that the 10" model is a little better for music.
    i really don´t like my 1200 while listening to music. it´s too slow, but for movies it´s excellent. it shakes the room when it´s in action [​IMG]
    i would consider something 'faster' if i where you, since you were interested in DVD-Audio..
    good luck!

    Avoid the PS-1000 for Music..
    Not accurate at all,,actually a very slopy sub.
    Lots of Boom and distortion.

    quote: John,why not throw the subs you have up front and get a set of svs's to put in the front?[/quote]
    Chad,
    I have a pair of Velodyne HGS-18's due any day now for front replacement.
    I wanted something with a little smaller cabinet due to space restrictions to use on my surrounds.
    Trevor,
    I see you are using a PS-1000 on your surrounds. Do you run your rear stage full range? How does it perform on movie material?
    Would I be better off spending the extra for a pair of PW-2200's or just save some money and squeeze in my PF18's like Chad suggests?

    John..
    I am no longer using the PS-1000 in the rear.
    My webpage will need to be updated.
    I now have an array of 4 ADP's across the back for my rear surrounds and have them set to small. The Denon drives all four of the rears.
    Invest in a set of 5 matching direct speakers and you will be set for DVD-Audio.
