I'm looking to buy either the SVS PB12-Plus or the Axiom EP500. My net cost after shipping to Canada would be the same for the two. My room is 18x14x8 feet, with one side completely open to the kitchen and dining area. There is another open doorway leading to the stairwell foyer. My listening style is 70% movies, 30% music (jazz and lite-rock), and mostly at low to mid level volumes - seldom at very loud settings. SVS clearly has a strong well accepted following, and would probably sound better for HT than the Axiom. The Axiom, on the other hand, a higher model in its line-up, has recently gotten lots of acclaim. Comments?
