Hi! Folks.. Quite simply i'm after a subwoofer for my home cinema build currently my room is 20' w x 20' d x 8' h and that is feet in case anyone is wondering. I have been reading about the PARADIGM SUB 15, some folks say it is over priced and you can buy a good a subwoofer with the same output for much less money is this true or what is the story with this subwoofer I do not like reading forums but I have no way of knowing and maybe some folks on here will be better place to give good impartial advice.
The other subwoofer I have been reading a lot about is the Ken Kreisel 5000 Mark3, how would this subwoofer stack up against the Paradigm Sub 15. I want low end clout with gut wrenching thunderous base, I have also read a lot about these subwoofers not being particularally good at the low end and the SVS 13'' subwoofer can give plenty lower that the two most expensive subwoofers mentioned above only down side with the svs is the weight and @ 11 stone weight that is one heavy mother of a sub, so it is kinda ruled out as I live in an apartment block which has plenty of sound proofing so rumble wont be a problem but getting this thing up 4 flights of stairs will as I will be doing all the lifting..
I would have loved to buy the Velodyne DD18 but unfortunately that is funny money and to my mind is overpriced @ £6000 originally it was priced at a more sensible £3200 on one and a half years ago, lol so what happend to the british poiund?, but still if you have a money tree out back then this would be my subwoofer of choice x two but too rich for my blood.
What about the B&W DB1 Active Subwoofer £3200, I can buy the Paradigm for £**** and the Ken for £****
So folks come on please give me your honest opinion which or can you recommend to me a subwoofer that will literally kick me in the guts and make my day, all i'm interested in is low end for movies i'm not interested in music or anything of that nature this is purely movie orientated, ultimately I will have two of whatever subwoofer you mention but obviously these will be separate purchases as my wallet will need a breather after buying one of these bad boys.. So it will be a case of buy one now and the other sub one year down the road simply to let my wallet breathe a sigh of relief.. :cheers:
Please sensible replies please as im seriously buying one of the above Paradigm or Ken so I would appreciate a knowledgable response with experience as this is quite an expensive spend on a subwoofer the likes of which I thought I would never do so come on peeps which do you recommend or have you something else you could bring to my attention for consideration.. I'm based in the UK..
