Subwoofer Choices..

Sunfire TS-EQS12 vs Definitive SuperCube Reference vs Velodyne Optimum 12
I hate buying things unheard, but it is hard to find a place to hear them side by side.
I have Definitive BP7002 for front 2 and want a strong low bass.
Music mostly more than Theater.
Anybody with expirience - please give me some feedback.
Thanks,

Velodyne for sure

If you have the cash the best sub for music is the Wilson Benesh Torus, take a look at this review from JV: http://www.avguide.com/product/wilson-benesch/torus-infrasonic-generator
All the Best.

Thanks for the replies. I was thinking Velodyne because of set up options
That 10,000 sub is a little out of price range.... But nice article and hope to experience one someday.
Thanks,
Scott

Good evening Sir, i have a question that i hope you would answer. I live in a decent size studio apartment. I think it's 20'x15'. I live on the ground floor so i'm not worried about someone under me. I love the SVS subwoofers especially the PC-13 Ultra. But i notice there seems to be more reviews on the PB-13 Ultra. Every review i have read gives two thumbs up for the sub. The reviews for the PC-13 Ultra gets very good reviews as well. My question is since they both have the same size woofer, and is made by the same company, is the performance of each sub the same? Or does one go lower and play louder than the other? I am familar with their size and have the room But my choice is the PC-13 Ultra. So, are their stats the same? I would love your response. Thank you and have a nice evening.

Good morning AVGuide, i posted a question about a choice of which subwoofer to purchase for my apartment. So far i have not recieved a response. I ask the question March 3, 2011. I am not angry but confuse as to how long one must wait. This information i seek is important. VeryDeep5hz.

 Regarding performance of the two SVS subs - I would humbly suggest that an email to the manufacturer with this same question would elicit the best and most useful response.

My rig is kinda old so i cant speak for the newer stuff but the Velodyne f1800rII is a good sub that  I have enjoyed for many years. The  bass is fairly tight for a 15. Klipsch's ksw12 is fair and budget priced altho underpowered imho.

Sorry, Velodyne fans.  I'd go for the Sunfire... in a heartbeat.  I've heard many Velodyne subs, and IMHO they always sound like giant rubber-bands being snapped.  I have had a Sunfire True Sub for several years, and have found it very easy to integrate with my main speakers.  (Audiophile friends often comment on how seamless the low bass is.)
 
Another suggestion.  I've found REL subs to be extremely musical.  I highly recommend them as well.
