I'm seriously considering upgrading my sub from Paradigm ps1000 to something more musical but still decent for ht. Onecall is clearing out the Velodyne FSX12 MKII for 523.86. I know someone is going to suggest the SVS 25-31 PCi for roughly the same amount. I've never heard of SVS until I started reading this board maybe a month ago. I do like what I've read so far about them, but I'm worried that a 31" tall sub will fail the spousal approval factor. My home theater is in my family room. If I happen to win the SVS contest tho, then she won't have a choice. Maybe she'll put a nice vase on it or something. The PS1000 already doubles as a sidetable. BTW, the wife is always complaining about the sub. She actually prefers movies with it turned off. I figure a less boomy more musical sub might please her. Anyway, I have a $550 limit for this upgrade. This sub will be mated to B&W CDM7 Se's main, cdmc se center and Rock Solids(pre B&W LM1's) for surrounds. I'm using a Denon 2801 as a preamp(I'm on the list for the Outlaw 950)and a Sherbourn 5/1500a amp. So, I guess my question is this, does anybody have experience with the Velodyne fsx12? Is the SVS that much better? I was also considering the HSU VTF2, and the lower end Velodyne CHT series. I kind of feel getting the CHT sub will be more of a sideways move then an upgrade. Any other suggestions? I would love to hear the SVS sub in action. Does anybody in Monmouth county NJ currently use one?
