    What would bestbuy or circuit city have for that price? Maybe bose makes subwoofers or should I say bass modules [​IMG]


    What would any HTF member recommend?



    Hmmm. maybe a SVS PB10. I had always known my next replacement sub would be an SVS. I had always wanted a 16-46PC+ but could never rationalize spending the money. This should be more than powerfull enough in my bedroom. This should also blend nicely with my JBL Studio setup (S38, S-center, and S26) and Sony DA4ES receiver.

    I was helping a friend at work setup a Hometheater setup. He wanted a 5.1 setup but was reluctant to spend alot on a subwoofer. He didn't want to upset his landlord underneath him. I told him every HT needs a subwoofer and offered to sell him my Sony sub for cheap. He agreed and I decided to step up to the baby SVS.

    I know I won't be dissapointed. [​IMG]

    I'll second the PB-10. It is right at the top of the hill in that price range. Note also that the PB-10 is approximately 2X the soize of the WM40.

    I had the good ole SAWM40. I tricked it out with all the mods...always sounded like crap. Moved up to the SVS PB10 last year I guess....and holy cow it's amazing.

    [​IMG] I didn't realize they were backordered in black. Missed the last one by a couple of days. I didn't want to settle for a different color so I decided to wait for black. It'll be a long 4 or so weeks. Bummed for now, but I know I won't be dissapointed when it arrives[​IMG]

    Yeah[​IMG] , my PB10 was shipped today and I will get it on the 8th. SVS must have overestimated when they told me on the phone that Black would be backordered until March.

    I'll finally see if the SVS hype is true or not.

    You are going to be amazed at the difference. That little PB10 is a killer sub for the money. We had one set up with several other large SV Subs in a demo room and when it was on many of the people in the room thought Ron had one of the large subs running. It was fun to see the surprised look on their faces when they realized they were actually listening to the PB10.
