    I just found a PSB 6i subwoofer at a local dept store in the home theatre section. It is marked down from $1600 (australian) to $850 because it has a broken front cover peg. I have read a couple of reviews and this sounds like a good deal. Anyone have any comments to make about PSB speakers or subwoofers? This SUB is huge!! it dwarfs every other sub in the shop, I want to go back and listen to it, it is tempting me badly!!
    Please comment....
    Cheers

    Regarding PSB speakers: My ~4-5 year-old setup includes all PSB speakers, the Image line for the surrounds, mains, centre, plus a Subsonic (if I recall the name correctly; been a while since I last looked at the back) for the subwoofer and I'm still happy with them. I'm happy with the imaging and even the cosmetics including design; they've got far greater depth than my previous speakers.

    When I last visited their Web site this year, it appears that they've updated them all.

    If I were to shop for new speakers, I'd consider PSB again.

    I've never heard their subwoofers, but I'd own PSB stuff in a heartbeat. Very good quality....amazing sound.

    PSB subsonic 6i is the best among ten subwoofers reviewed by Tom Nousaine in Sept 2004 Sound&Vision subwoofer shout out. With an output of 93.8 db at 20Hz, it beats Outlaw LFM-1(83db), Energy S12.3(86.9db), Velodyne DPS-12(80.4db), RBH MS-10.1(76.8db), Infinity SW-12 (84.5db), JBL S120PII (76.4db), Canton AS50SC(67.3 db), while Phase Tech HV-100 and Earthquake Super Nova MK-IV 10 can not reach 20Hz.

    I started the above thread, which pretty soon got a lot of responses... I'd say go for it- the entire PSB sub line sounds good. They may not go as low as some, or as loud as some others, but they sure sound great.

    Good choice Mark. It's an excellent sounding sub. We use them in a lot of our installations, and they always have a natural, non-boomy quality about them.

    Hey Mark!

    I own a Paradigm Servo 15 but I did have a Sub-Sonic 6 before the Servo 15 and I must say it is, without a doubt, one of the most musical subs I've ever encountered. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase it if the only thing wrong is a cosmetic blemish. Just my thoughts......Lee
