I know I know, questions like this are asked all the time, but here is my version; I'm building a new home and will have a dedicated room in the basement. So far I have amassed an Arcam AVR850, Emotiva A-150 2-channel amp for one set of Atmos speakers, Polk LSiM707s, 706c, 703s and four 700-LS ceiling speakers. I need subs, two of them. The room as it stands today is 16x31x9. The back of the room is a 6' deep bar with an open hallway beside it leading to a bathroom.\n\nI am trying to change the configuration to a wall bar and a door to the hall sealing the room and making it 25-26' deep.\n\n70\/30 music to movies, tonality is paramount, all sorts of music but nothing that goes super deep. I do like being impressed when I crank up Bladerunner 2049 and I also listen critically to music down to resonance of drums and fingering on stand up bass. I listen loud but not at reference, I’m 48 and have raced cars and played drums for years so I probably can’t hear as well as I think.\n\nLastly, both SVS and HSU talked me out of sealed subs. Subs will be located at opposite front and rear corners or 1\/4 way from both front side walls in the front of the room (seating could end up being a room mid-point). Mid-point of room is not an option for sub placement.\n\nCrazy thing is there are s ton of options: PB-3000s, VTF-15H Mk2 (current front runner), PSA V15s, FV15HP, Monolith 15s...... No way I will order all these things, set them up, calibrate and return what I choose against.\n\nThey don't need to be pretty and size doesn't matter. If you have a preference for or against one or a few of the options please specify. I'm not interested in sweeping remarks about something sucking or being the best; back up your comments with personal experience or at least reference a review or measurements.\n\nThanks.
