Thinking about adding an SVS SB-3000 sub to my 2 channel system for music only. Using Klipsch Cornwall IVs that go down to 34hz. Not really impressed with REL or other subs. Any recs?

i mean if your going to spend the money why no go full send? :dunno:
if you can tell the difference and its worth it to you go for it... most people can't tell the difference between a $300 home theater set up and a $1500 home theater set up let alone music played with a sub from said home theater vs one designed for music....the list gets even smaller of people who can tell the difference between a $1500 home theater set up and a $10k set up

I’m not interested in home theater.

Have you looked at JL Audio?


I have a JL Fathom, and about 100hz it'll start to rattle your brain. Obviously I don't listen to it like this constantly, but it's fun to demo for friends.

I’ve yet to meet a sealed subwoofer that made me feel like it was better than it’s ported equivalent.

but I’m likely wrong
It depends on ones taste, and the music they're listening to. Sealed boxes get a more responsive, punchier bass. Whereas ported will offer more bass with less response. I'm certain you know this.
Either way, the difference is very noticeable.

For home theater, I'd imagine most go with a ported enclosure.
