    So the JBL PB-12 is the one ?

    I conquer with you all. My friend just recently got the PB-12 and its pretty decent.
    Its pretty articulate for its low low price. Still has the SLAM on movies all the way!

    I haven't heard the Paradigm but have heard the others on your list. FWIW, of those three my choice would be the PB-12. I suggest that you audition each one yourself if possible, if you haven't already done so.

    Again, based on price/value, I don't think you can beat the PB12.

    I just wanted to give a "shout out" to the KSW-12, which I own. At 440 Watts, it's plenty loud and I don't think you'll get noticably better performance until you step up to the SVS arena. And, it can be had for under $300.00. Do audition it if you get the chance!

    Check out the velo ct 100 at onecall.com $299. I have one and I almost freaked out with u571 dts and ID4 DD.

    Bryan,
    I was in your same shoes about 8 months ago and I decided to save a little longer and pick up an SVS. Your sub is one of the most important pieces in your HT equipment. Don't settle for less. A SVS 20-31 should fit your needs quite nicely

    Also don't count ou the Adire Audio Rava for $399 (and it's powered unlike the SVS). Again another great bang for the buck sub.
