Hi folks - the debatable mx is back and hes asking questions...
I got my eye on the 550 dollar SVS. What other subwoofers for 600 dollars or less is out there.
What im looking for -
*Powerful (wont distort at loud volumes - within reason)
*Loud, I dont care if it hits only down to 30 hz, I want it to play loud
*accurate
*small...it can be tall, but I need it to be relatively small.

if you can think of a sub, plz tell me.
Damn you all, damn you all to hell.......

    SVS = much more clean output and similar extension.

    Velo is STILL a great deal, though.

    GANZO! Hows your sub hit? does it play loud? distort? eh? Whats the condition? good? If you don't mind holding it until around July or so, I might take a swing at it.

    so Mom didn't cough up the 3 grand? :)

    Two questions:
    You need a powered one?
    What are the limits on its footprint? any height restriction?

    Guess that was three questions...
    More later,
