Need help deciding on RW-12 or SVS


Recommended Posts

I have come down to 2 subs so far based on specifications alone. They are the Klipsch RW-12 and the SVS PCi 20-39.

I want to know if it is worth it to spend an extra 125 for the SVS? I have found the RW-12 for about $500 w/ shipping, and the SVS goes for $625 w/ shipping.

The amps are about the same, "around 300 watts RMS"

The drivers are the same, "12 inches"

The frequency is about the same, "20-hz"

My system components are in my sig. below, and my room is small, "12x9", but I want a very loud and very low sub for $600 or less.

Has anybody had a chance to compare the two subs?

I recently listened to the RW-12, just because it is the latest offering from Klipsch. Not bad. I would still stand by my 20-39PCi in any comparison between the two.
