    Maybe someone can help me. I am looking at these 2 subwoofer systems (Used) The first one is about 8 months old and the second one is about 18 months old.

    Also, there is a bit of a price difference. The second system being about $125 more.

    Which system would be the better system?

    Which Subwoofer would be the better Sub?

    Which amp would be the better amp?

    If anyone has any thoughts, I would appreciate hearing from you.

    I should mention that it will be used both for Home Theater and for many types of music.

    Thanks

    Amps are very close to the same so its a dollars difference.
    As for the subs same drivers just enlosers and tunning is different so the 16-46CS+ wins in my book. May play alittle lower in FS

    Either way really from what u will notice is the 125 buck difference before sound quality. Check out the Nady amp might be cheaper and or a QSC. The sub u buying only needs 500 wattts max those amps r possibley way too much power

    I would go with the 20-39CS+ subs as they will have very good output in room to about 17hz. They will cover about 99% of the frequency's that are being used in most DVD's. They will also give you more punch in the upper hz as well as a couple more db's in total output. Good luck with your decision! [​IMG]

    Imo ditto to what BobAlbano states. (A little more punch) I think the 20-39+ would serve you best.

    Thanks to everyone for the reply.

    I think I will save the bucks and go with the svs 20-39 with the crown amp. It was my first choice, but I wasn't sure.

    Again, thanks for the assistance.
