Hi Everyone,

I am planning to buy subwoofer for my setup .I currently have 2 Floor Standing speakers(Airmotiv T1) which sounds good but don't deliver much bass.My budget is around 50k and I have narrowed it down to SVS PB-1000.I am confused with 10 inch or 12 inch.Which driver will suit my requirement?

My requirement is for 50% music and 50% movies.Please suggest subwoofers for my setup.I am not aware of what all aspects to look for subwoofer and I am very new to HIFI world.

Also I would like to know how to match a subwoofer with Floor Standers.

Check BIC America PL200ii wrt to 50-50% requirement of yours, as I think it's only option near to budget of yours.

12 inch subwoofer should be able to reach lower than a 10 inch sub..

You don't have to match subwoofer with floorstander.. Audyssey XT32 in Denon x 3400 should take care of that..

Two subs are good in a room, than a single sub.. So in your max budget, choose any two subs as it helps for a smoother response in the room..

Right now I don't have space to put 2 subs in my living room.I will be moving to new house next year where I can have 2 subs.But till that time I need one good sub woofer which can deliver deep bass

I also want to buy 12 inch sub but SVS SB2000 is out of my budget

In that scenario, look at 12 inch subs from Taga TSW 200 (or) the earlier suggested BIC america PL 200 II, Emotiva Bas X12 should be in your budget..

I use the BIC America PL200 and i can confidently say that it does a good job for both movies and music....the 12 inch driver really produces the required lows.....excellent sub and worth what i spent for it.

Else.....make a quick trip to Mumbai and visit the dealers to audition the various subs you like, then take a call.....

I can trust you for sure but just to be double sure I want to listen them first before buying.

I will try to audition all subwoofers available in Pune first and then go to Mumbai to have audition.Thanks for the heads up

Hi Everyone,



Also I would like to know how to match a subwoofer with Floor Standers.

You have Emotiva speakers and can go for Emotiva BASX X 10 or S 12 subwoofers. My S 10 is equally good for music and movies in 12 by15 room and is more than sufficient for the room size. In htstore.in S 10 is 35000 and S 12 46000. You can try local dealers for deals..
