    Hello all, I'm new to the board and have a few questions for everyone about a few sub options...
    For starters I have a 12" Klipsch sw 112 that works fine, but leaves me asking for more!..
    I was pretty much set on getting an SVS PB12 plus or PC12 plus. It really looked to me that they had the upper hand on the Internet direct sub companies on build quality, longevity, warranty, power output and features. These are some of the things that are important to me, I don't want to pay a little less for something and be disappointed with it in a year or 2. Another concern of mine is sound quality, I know this is less of a concern with subs rather than speakers, but I want to be sure I get a really clean Bass output with alot a punch to it.
    Bottom line is am i getting more from SVS with the 1300$ price tag for a PB12 plus? Or would I be better off with the HSU VTF-3 MK5 HP or even the VTF-15H-MK2 for just over 1000$ shipped. I do tend to lean toward the crisp sound of a 12" vs the 15" driver as well, however the more I read about the new 15" drivers I'm beginning to think this should be less of a concern. My listening area is on the larger side.. about 15x22 with 8 foot ceilings, and from there it does open up into the open concept main floor. I'm really looking for best bang for my buck, but like i said earlier I don't want to sacrifice quality to save a few dollars.
    Thanks for the input, I look forward to reading it!

    The question that has to be considered here is, do the room or the Sub degrade the sound quality. Often in the domestic situation it's more the room than the Sub.

    So consider the room first, then bass management and then choose a sub. That gives you the best SQ.
