Which sub would you recommend?

Hi, I have RTI A7 towers and the CS A4 centre and now want to get a sub. I live in Australia so I pay a lot more than you guys do.
These are the ones I am looking at and there prices. My room size is about 1900 square feet. Is it really worth paying $250 more for the SVS?

SVS-PB1000 pro $1000.
SVS SB1000 pro $900.
Polk PW505 $900
Polk HTS12 $750
Klipsch R-120SW $750

Cheers
Mike

    I would not consider any of those listed as adding enough to the RTiA7s except the PB1000 Pro.

    Personally, I wouldn't go lower than a pair of SB2000s or a single or pair of PB2000s.

    Is the 1900 square feet a typo or it really cubic feet? 1900 square feet is almost like a 38 ft by 50 ft space in a barn. I like big rooms for audio systems, but wow. If it is that big you could use anything with higher bass outputs.

    Yes, the SVS is worth it. I would go for the pb1000. If you can swing a PB2000, that would be ideal.

    I see what's meant by pricing being higher. A PB2000 Pro is $2,099 Australian dollars which equates to about $1500 US dollars.

    https://avaustralia.com.au/svs-pb-2000-pro-12-550w-ported-subwoofer/

    The US price is currently $899 for a PB2000 Pro but scheduled to go up in early October to $1099 (!). I didn't check all of the models but the PB3000 is also going to go up to $1599 from $1399.

    Anyone on the fence about getting a new sub from them might want to jump before October 4.
  • Thanks for all the comments. Will order the SVS PB1000 today, unfortunately my budget does not allow the 2000. Yes, it was a typo, it should have been cubic feet.

    I think you’ll be quite pleased with it in that space!

    Shame you can't swing for a Velodyne.
