  1. Hi all, Seeking some advice on the state of the subwoofer market in Australia. I've been reading various threads on overseas forums such as AVS Forum and the options in the USA seem plentiful compared to Australia. I don't see a whole lot of commentary in this forum for best sub options available locally so keen to hear from members. I've currently got an SVS PB 2000 sub and thinking about upgrading. My dedicated theatre/media room is 35-40m2 and I use my subs for maybe 70% movies and 30% music. I'm currently running a single sub but am investigating moving to dual subs and adding some room treatment to further optimise my setup. Further details on my room are in my Build Thread in my signature block. I'm looking for tight, musical bass with big "mid-bass" chest slam and the ability to rumble into the teens (sub-20Hz). I like ported subs for movies but I know there are some very highly regarded sealed options that can still pressurise a room well. I tend to listen to movies around -20dB at present (given my neighbours and family) so definately won't be pushing the setup anywhere near reference levels. I have a fair amount of space in my room so I'm not afraid of heavy, larger ported enclosures (within reason). Here are some options I've been looking at in the market. I note prices range from $2k - 5k depending on the model. I'm not opposed to one very good sub if performance for the $ stacks up, but cheaper dual subs may be a better option. I could always start with one and then save for another down the track. Rythmik: 3 year warranty on electronics, 5 years on drivers AU distributor Audio Salon; Red Spade Audio also do custom subs with Rythmik servo kits FVX15 - 15" ported, 400WRMS, 12 - 200 Hz (-2 dB @ 17 Hz, -6db@12hz) with LFE input, roughly $2,500) FV15HP - 15" ported, 600WRMS, 12 - 200 Hz (-2 dB @ 17 Hz, -6db@12hz) with LFE input, roughly $2,800) F18 - 18" sealed, 900WRMS, 10 - 250Hz (+/-3db) with LFE inputs, roughly $3,080) SVS: The safe option, excellent local support and warranty, newest gen have app-controlled adjustments 5 year warranty PB 2000 Pro - 12" ported, 550WRMS, 16Hz to 290Hz +/-3dB (standard mode), roughly $1,980 - A pair of these is a very compelling economical option PB 3000 - 13" ported, 800WRMS, 16-260 Hz +/- 3 dB (standard mode), roughly $2,970 - One of these and a PB 2000 Pro is another option Power Sound Audio (PSA): Deep Hertz Audio are no longer stocking these so it seems PSA is no longer an option for Australia. I have read some very good things about some of their recent offerings though which is a shame. Very well priced and 5 year warranty too. TV1512 - 15" ported, 960WRMS, tuned to 12Hz (can't find exact specs), US$1,525 V1812 - 18" ported, 960WRMS, US$1,725 JTR Speakers: Captivator 1400 - 18" ported, 1400WRMS, 16-200Hz +/-1dB, Now an obsolete model but may have fit the bill well for my room and not as big as the current models Captivator 2400 - 18" ported, 2400WRMS, 12-165hz +/-3dB, (in room response below 10hz), US$3,000 - Too big and expensive with extensive multi-month delays reported. Shipping also very high. Seaton Sound: F18+ (primary woofer with the option of a slave enclosure) - 18" sealed, 4000WRMS, anechoic response: +/-3dB from 12Hz to 200Hz outdoor response (LF Adjust @ full clockwise), typical in-room extension to 7-12Hz, US$2,700 - Expensive with extensive multi-month delays reported, shipping also very high SubMersive HP+ (primary woofer with the option of a slave enclosure) - 15" sealed dual opposing woofers, 4000WRMS, anechoic response: +/-3dB from 12Hz to 200Hz outdoor response (LF Adjust @ full clockwise), typical in-room extension to 7-12Hz, US$2,700 - Expensive with extensive multi-month delays reported, shipping also very high Krix: Specs wise these don't seem like much of an upgrade from my current SVS? Hard to tell with limited data and reviews out there to my knowledge. Volcanix - 12" ported, 450WRMS, 15Hz-200Hz in room response, 5 year warranty, roughly $2,200 Cyclonix Active Series SX - 18" ported, 450WRMS, 20Hz - 250Hz (-10dB), 5 year warranty, $4,100 VAF: Big $ and the specs don't seem to stand up to the USA offerings? Hard to tell with limited data and reviews out there to my knowledge. Gravitas - 13" ported dual woofers, 750WRMS, 19Hz – 250Hz - 3dB, roughly $5,000 Am I missing some other local options that would compare against some of the above? I am leaning towards the Rythmik subs at this point. The SVS subs by far offer the best bang for the buck but I think the Rythmik may offer better sound quality, output and low Hz tuning. Some key questions: - How important is to to go two identical subs if going duals? Will it be difficult to integrate one ported and one sealed model of different sizes, brands etc? E.g. one Rythmik F18 and one FVX15; or one Rythmik FV15HP and F12; or one SVS PB 3000 and a PB 2000 Pro. - What do you think there is a best time of year to order a sub? - Black Friday sales are coming up in November but I don’t think they’ll have an impact on some models e.g. Rythmik due to their distribution arrangement; SVS could have some good bargains though. I'm no doubt opening a can of worms but keen to hear opinions. Discuss.
  2. Hi Guys, Recently my Rythmik E15HP stopped working and i'm looking for some help, professional or otherwise, to get it back up and running (my technical skills are very limited..!) I've been in touch with the guys at Rythmik and with their help i've managed to test the driver - which seems to be working. They've suggested it's most likely a bad power amp module - which they said they can send. Apparently it will require some soldering though which is beyond me. I don't have a huge budget for the repair at the moment - in fact i'm not sure how much it will cost - so if anyone recommend someone or even just what I should expect to pay i'd be very grateful. Thanks in advance!
  3. Hi, I recently got myself a pair of B&W 685 S2's for the living room. They're sounding great, but as they're on stands they lack a little punch in the bass department. I had a couple of subs shortlisted already but was hoping someone more experienced would be able to offer some advice (this is my first setup). I'm mainly interested in using them for music. So far I have been looking at: - Rythmik f12 (for $1200AUD) - two SVS SB-1000's (for ~$1200AUD) - Rythmik e15hp (haven't been able to get a price for here yet) my budget is about $1200 - 1500, so at the moment the Rythmik is my no. 1 preference (have read a lot of great things about how tightly and accurately it reproduces bass), but i'm not sure it'll have the oompf to fill the room. I had also read you can get a smoother sound with two subs (and i'm guessing obviously more power)? It's a bit of an awkward area with an adjoining kitchen and hall, so probably not the best acoustically. I've attached a rough diagram for reference. Might be worth mentioning the floating wall has an opening to the kitchen which is a little above the height of the speakers. All suggestions and general advice more than welcome! Thanks
  4. Item: Rythmik F12 or F12SE sub Price Range: 600ish Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: Located in Melbourne. Can buy straight away.
  5. Item: Rythmik Subwoofers - F15HP's, F18's or/and F25's Price Range: Negotiable Item Condition: Used Extra Info: Require L and R subwoofers to get to that bottom octave as well as high SPL bass. Quantity is dependant on model available and how many you have. If you're looking to get out of HiFi or for some out of this world reason you don't want your Rythmik subs anymorw give me a buzz.
