Subwoofer to Pair with RP-8000F


Recommended Posts



I have  a set of RP-8000F speakers and I am looking for a sub to pair with them.   I only listen to music, and the RP-8000F are authoritative and very dynamic but I feel they are missing a bit of bass.  The type of music I  listen to varies from classic country to Indie to punk rock.   The RP-8000F speakers are being driven by an Emotiva PT100 preamp and A-300 amplifier.  The A300 is 150W RMS at 8 ohms per channel.   The room is 12 feet wide ,18 feet deep, has 9 foot ceilings and is enclosed with carpet for flooring. The RP-8000F speakers are in the front of the room on the 12 foot wall about  9 or 10 feet apart and about a foot away from the wall. I have been considering the  Klipsch R10-swi, BIC F12, SVS pb 1000, and  a Definitive Technology   Supercube 2000 or 4000.   I would like to stay under 500 if possible.   Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated, and i am not set on any of these subs listed above, they are just the ones I have been looking at.. Unfortunately I don't have anyway here close by to audition these in person.

hi mitch, 

  you have some very nice klipsch speakers, congrats on your purchase. If you mainly listen to music on them. you may want to consider going with a sealed sub. my rp-280f’s sound much better with a svs-sb2000, for music & ht, compared to the ported klipsch sub i started with. If your close to a best buy magnolia, they usually have both sealed & ported subs for you to audition in person.

good luck
