    my room is 20x25 and my couch is 12 feet away from the tv. Im not really sure how much im willing to pay. I want to cover the whole room with really..explosive bass. I'll tell yah i'll pay way more then $3,000 but if its a really good famous sub i'd be willing to pay a whole lot more, im obsessed with bass. I would try looking some up but i have a annoyingly slow freezy computer and i dont know the names of any good brands etc.

    I have a B&K Ref 50 and 200.7

    Im gonna get new speakers soon to, gonna make a thread on that to.

    In that budget, with a desire for that much bass, I would think the SVS B4+ would fit the bill. Other than that there is the Velodyne DD18. Two SVS PB2+ subs would ring up at about 2500 I think.

    Can you do an infinite baffle in your space? You could have lotsa bass for alot less money.

    Go to klone-audio.com and follow the link to th Infinite Baffle Forum to see if you can do one in your home. A lot of good info, start with the FAQ and go from there.

    Did you read the FAQ and look at the gallery. That should give you and idea. Basically it is a subwoofer mounted to a small box or manifold which is then placed in the basement or attic and one end of the box is open into the listening room. Very easy to make if you have the space and can cut a hole in the floor or wall or ceiling. I used a floor vent that wasn't being used anymore and but the box in the basement. Check out the pics on the site and it will help visualize it.

    why do they call them infinite baffle instead of just inwall subwoofers or such, basically the samething as subs at a theater right?

    Because it can be a large box with a Vb about 10 times the driver's Vas and I dont think that theaters use IBs. I think they use multiple 18s or horn loaded subs. And IBs do shake the whole house but there are things you cant do to limit this.

    If you mount the subwoofers across from each other on the manifold it cancels alot of the vibration. Once I mounted it to the rafters under the floor I don't have anymore vibration than my sonotube sub produced. The space you are mounting the sub in is becoming your box, ie. your basement or attic. So in reality you have a very large sealed box. I'm not an expert on how this all works, but do some searches and you can find alot of helpful info.
