    I am getting the H/K AVR 630, along with 4 Atoms and a CC170. However, from reading multiple post, it seems like I might be disappointed with the PDR-10 (or possibly any of paradigm subs). Don't think I can afford a SVS, but maybe the HSU. How do these two compare?

    Both great sub companies, but at the moment, SVS does not have an offering in the $300-$400 range of Hsu's STF-1 and STF-2.

    I have had a chance to hear both those models now, truly outstanding values.

    I know Paradigm also makes good subs, but I am unfamiliar with the models and pricing.

    How big is the room?

    The room is 18'x 14'x 10'.

    any uncloseable openings?

    Give Hsu a call...you should be good with an STF-2.

    Well that room opens up to a dinning room, also to the kitchen (no doors). Thanks, the STF-2 is what I was looking at.

    that is about the size of my livingroom, and I have one uncloseable doorway into the kitchen. An STF-2 would be fine for me.

    Do some searches on a 15" Velodyne too.. I still think it gives about the most bang for buck out there.

    Anyone have an opinion on how much better the STF-2 would sound compared to the PDR - 10?
