    New to this forum (first post) and have been researching subs. Heres the layout. Room is roughly 17x20 with standard 8' ceilings. Upgrading to Rotel next month. Using Klipsch RF-7 front and RC-7 center. Boston CR-7 suround. I am currently using an old Klipsch SW-8 sub. I will use my system 60-75% HT and music the rest. Budget is 1000-1300. Subs in finals:
    SVS,
    Paradigm Servo 15, (best looking sub with the wood finish)
    Mirage BPS 400, (Monster, weighs 110 lbs very cool)

    Others considered:
    M&K MX125 Mark 2 (these are my least favorites)
    Velodyn HGS series (a little pricy)
    Velodyne SPL 1200
    Sunfire True Mark iv
    2 B&W ASW 650's

    Bottom line is, I want a sub to kick me in the chest..too knock my wife off the coach. I also would also prefer only one sub and Although I like the SVS, I lean more to the traditional cube/box design. According to SVS a cube/box design is do out but is a way down the road. The sub I am leaning towards would be the Mirage with dual 12" drivers and a 400Watt RMS amp. ANY thoughts. I would love to hear from someone who owns a BPS 400 also.

    They are suppose to have a cube box out with the same amp/sub as the 25-31pci mid january if you can wait.
    From what people say they can't be beat for the price.

    if the size of the sub is not an issue, take a look at the VMPS Larger sub. It's 23x32x19 and 140 Lbs., and that doesn't even include the amplifier as it's a passive sub. It uses a 15" and a 12" driver and a 15" downfiring PR.

    VMPS....Hm never heard of that one, I will check that out. I bought a Paradigm PW2200 off Audiogon cheap to tide me over until I can get a sub that will do all I want of it. That Paradigm just came yesterday and fofr the money its a nice piece, but still not quite what I want long term. It may afford me to wait on the box SVS and try it out though.
