Jay, the "ultra" he is talking about is Emo, not SVS.

I don't know that the A3-250 is "comparable" to the others; it is a 10" woofer.

Can you get a Hsu STF-2 instead?

I think you would like any one of them, but being a PB13 Ultra owner, I vote for the Ultra 12 knowing SVS quality first hand. but I have never heard anything bad about Hsu subs nor eD, I think for the price the eD is best bang for the buck.


The Ultra 12 is from Emotiva not from SVS, thank you!

Yes I could get the STF-2 too but isn't the VTF-2 a lot better?
Thanks.

Depends how much fiddling you do. Actually, isn't the STF-3 now the downrated VTF-2?

What a cool room! I love the built-in shelves for the video library!

At the risk of not paying adequate attention to your stated current wants, I want to suggest - very strongly - that your entire system could benefit tremendously from experimentation with speaker placement.

The pictures are VERY helpful!

I would try to get the mains symmetrically placed next to the TV. Having the right speaker up so high and in a corner has got to be doing very bad things to your imaging.

I would try to move the coffee table back a bit to give the center speaker a bit more clearance.

And I can't imagine that you are getting very good use from the rear speakers since they are firing directly into the headrest of the couch. If you can position them higher somehow, that would probably make a world of difference.

I think getting QS8's for the surround (side) speakers would also make a big difference.

But really - before spending a lot of extra money on speakers (height, wide or replacement) I would spend quite a bit of time positioning what you already have. I'll bet that you can achieve the spacious soundstage you are seeking just be rearranging some things.


Thank you! Yes, that's what I want is to improve the sound by moving the current speakers, I don't think I'll be buying anything but the sub that I actually need! Pretty soon I'll have to build another shelve for videos, it's getting full! Thanks again.

I had to do a bouble take to see who posted this. I thought it was Micah again....

D'oh! too many Ultra subs out there to keep track of. I would then go with the eD, far too many happy owners out there to not give them a try, especially for that price.

I'm going to start a sub line, and call them Infras. Who wants an ultra-sonic sub anyway?
