I do not want to start a flame war. I realize that the dharman and the svs 20-39 are both great speakers from very good companies. Although, prices are very different. I would need to buy an amp for the svs. What i want to know is what to go with? If the svs is that much better then maybe I should go with it. Someone told me that the it would be a waste because really for either because both of these subs will over power my speakers too much. I am unclear about that. Here is what I have: 20'x18' room with 12' ceilings 2 Polk rt-5 2 Polk rt-25i 1 Polk cs245 center Onkyo 595 I must say I have corresponded with the Tom at SVS and he is a very nice and helpful person. He has only had good things to say about the competition. I contacted the people that sell the Dharman, but I have not heard back yet. Of course it is late at night so they really have not had much of a chance to do so. I just want some oppions and maybe some from someone that has heard both. As a new home theater user I just do not know what to buy. It is very confusing. I am sure either would be a good product just having a hard time deciding what would be the best for me. Thanks for your time!!!
