Ok, I am finally in the position to upgrade my sub. I have been using a 20-39 pci for the past year and a half in a basement room that is 18x23x8 with no openings. For movies I like the sub. What I want now is more headroom down low so it won't sound strained or stay at the same volume regardless if I bump up the gain or master volume. I am getting 107 to 108 peaks on the loudest bass scenes on a radio shack meter uncorrected, sub corner loaded about 14 feet away. I would like to get that up to over 115 (uncorrected) if possible, not that I would use that all the time I just want to know the power is there. For music I am becoming more and more dissatisfied with my sub. It sounds good and it has a very full sound but I would like something with more "punch" to it. I can honestly say that I have never felt the bass in my chest from either movies or music from the svs. I listen to music more often that I watch movies, but I think they are both equally important to me if that makes sense. I would say that I am about 75/25 music. I am not saying that I want to go back to the sound of my old sub which was a 15" cerwin vega, it was boomy and loose sounding. I think I just want something that has more upper bass and that sounds tight and clear. So, to sum it up I have 1000 dollars to spend and I want more of what I already have for movies, and punchier bass for music. I don't want to sell the pci, I would like to keep it and use it with whatever I decide to buy.
