Try both and see which  works better for you.

Lol..I guess in order to potentially avoid the high price of a 12m sub cable, will start with option 1.

I would start with good 10" that can go down to ~20hz. What are your candidates?

mmmm..don't think those "budget" type I mention like Elac, Mission goes down that low.   

Have not really look at others as i understand those bass focus brands will probably be out of my budget unless I go preown...lol

Then probably better to have 1 proper one than 2 with less performance.

You should get a proper a sub and a used one may be within the budget. I used to have those subs like Yamaha until I bought my first SVS, The diff is day and night. Dual subs are the best upgrade, better than when I installed my front height speakers. Subs are really important for movies. I think the promo for SW12 is really value for money now.

Thanks.

Proper sub meaning SVS, Starke ?

I think those do not have 10" models here. Where can I get SVS. KEC?

There are other brands too like JL Audio, Rythmik etc.

Yes, Kec carries SVS. PB10 is using a 10” woofer.

Swop in a SW12 last week and the difference is great. Not really technical into it but certainly shiok with the bass and rumble.

Setting up the second SW2 soon, behind the couch. Eager to sense the improvements.

I cant explain this but somehow I feel with the SW12 in, the LCRs seems "inadequate". Looks like  have to hasten my picks for the speakers. Lol

What LCR are you using? Can try to adjust the crossover?

Missions LX4 and LXC
I ran AccuEq which sets the crossover at exactly the lowest ratings of the Missions. 40 & 80.

Moved it up to 60 and 100.😀

What can you hear between previous and current Xover value settings?
