I am thinking that I am deciding between two SVS 16-46 PC+, two HSU VTF3HO with turbo, or one EP-600 for subs that seem to be in my price range and capability.

SVS: I don't know if the high end bass will be greater than what I already have. Output below 25 Hz will be ridiculous compared to what I have now but I don't know about the 60 to 80 Hz area.

HSU: Who know when it will be out. Who knows how it will perform.

EP600: I'm back to having trouble believing this sub can output more and better than 4 SVS Ultra drivers. Actually, I don't have a problem with the "Better." It's the "more" that I have trouble understanding.

As I understand it, an Ultra will put out a bit more energy than a 600 at the lowest notes and highest volumes. Where the 600 pulls ahead is "real world loud playing" -- you can run the system at a level where the Ultra would be overdriven by the lowest frequencies (as would a 600 without DSP) and the 600 sounds fine because it automatically cuts back the volume when necessary -- but 99% of the time it isn't necessary. As a result, movie and music tests seem to give the 500 and 600 a slight advantage over an Ultra despite the Ultra's better driver.
