    Ok I have just bought the Kef Speakers (Q7's, Q1's And Soon Q6c)

    I got the PSW2500 Sub with it but after reading a few comments i am kinda regretting it as people seem think i should be aiming for something abit better with the Q7's

    So i am thinking about getting a SVS and was wondering if the PB12 would be better than the PSW2500 On its own

    or should i just add a PB10 AS WELL As the PSW2500 then i could keep the Kef on show and hide the SVS behind the Sofas

    Room is about 6 Metres X 4 Metres

    The PB-10 is an excellent sub that punches well above it's weight and won't sound out of place with your speakers.

    My only concern is that integrating two subs is never as easy as it might seem and if you get it wrong you could end up with less bass and not more.

    Using 2 subs is definitelya good way of improving low frequency output (I'd probably add another BK XLS200 to make a stack of 2 if I had the spare cash :rolleyes: )

    My worry here is that although a better sub will provide increased extension and be better down to that level, you'll be limited by the quality of the PSW2500 at the levels where it will be active. Basically, adding another sub won't remove levels of distortion that are already present from the Kef.

    In my opinion, either the PB10 or PB12 will be better than the Kef but you may well degrade the sound by using them in conjunction.

    Agreed, if you are going to have two subs, it is always better to have the same model, let alone the same brand, otherwise it will be integration nightmare.

    I'm toying with the idea of a 2nd PC Ultra, but that won't happen until the house move.

    A PB10 would be a good choice, But I would probably go a bit further and go for a PB12 Plus.

    Thanks for the advice guys

    i am gona stick the PSW2500 on Ebay should get nearly what i paid back for it i am sure

    I been looking around the SVS website and reading a few reviews on this forum and decided to narrow my search down to the

    25-31 PC-Plus

    Or

    25-31 PCi

    I know its quite a change from my previous pick but i think one of the cylinders in the corner of the room behind my speaker and dvd rack will be a better option for me

    Just gota decide on which would be best for my room
