    Can you seal it in an enclosure? If it's open to your attic, the performance will be horrible.

    David, regarding size restrictions, if I do put it under that cocktail table I only have about 15" of height available, although we can put the table legs on some kind of risers and take it up a couple of inches but no more than that. Having said that, there are a few subs out there that are too tall to currently fit, but would work if placed on their side. For performance, I'm not really looking to rattle walls, but figured that for movies it would probably be nice to have that extra bass punch. My front speakers do a good job with bass, so I may not be looking to use the sub for music, but I would also try that and see what I think. You are definitely right about treating the room a bit. I have plans to add an area rug and some kind of window treatment. And maybe even some kind of absorbing artwork on the wall. Ever since we changed out to hardwood floors and removed the old ugly blinds that were originally on the window, the sound has been way too bright/reflective. Budget-wise, I'm hoping to stay at or under $500. At the top of that range is the SVS SB-1000 which is also small enough to easily fit under the table. There are a couple of BIC subs that are really affordable and get some praise (at 17" high I'd have to put them on their sides).


    Lefisc, check out this thread for several pictures of the room, including the front:

    Mrhookup, thank you for the additional information. I'm hoping the corner under the table won't be too stifling for the sub. It's a very convenient spot for me!


    Thanks,
    Greg

    I'm reviewing a sub right now that isn't released yet from RSL that's a bargain of a deal price wise ($399) and its performance is extremely good for a 10" woofer. I'm not sure when it's going to be released though, but I'll check with the company on timing. Also, it has built-in wireless for $449 that I'll be testing out today to see how it works.

    As for the SVS...you really can't go wrong with their subs...they work extremely well.
