I'm really conflicted on this: I already own two Servo-15s, and one is really enough in my room, what with 5x3 7" woofers in my Studio 100 v3s. On the other hand, it looks like I could be using my Anthem AVM 20 largely in 5.1 (or 2.1) Analog Direct for the foreseeable future for both movies and music out of my Oppo BDP-95. Really the Anthem can only handle the tuner, Fibe TV and DVDs through its DSPs. And even if I update the pre-pro I play a lot of music that I'll want to keep in the analog domain. The Paradigm Perfect Bass Kit is $129 and I can get the Sub 15 in black ash to match my speakers for $1999 (CDN). I'm thinking that the room correction alone could make a contribution to both music playback and the newer HD Dolby and DTS sounds on Blu-ray. Thoughts?

Sorry I missed this one. As I recall the manual suggests it is effective up to about 200 Hz.
I managed to pick up a DSPeaker 8033s-ii for $400 CDN. I'm looking forward to trying it out with my old Servo-15. This looks like the perfect companion to my Outlaw Audio ICBM-1 and Anthem AVM 20 in Analog Direct: I'll keep the DSPs away from everything but the bass and still get some room correction.
I would only buy a Paradigm sub for HT and movies only.
Musically, REL, is the best sub in the marketplace.
Actually the old Servo-15 is quite musical. Anyway, I own two of them and don't want to throw them out too! But I'm struggling with calibrating the anti-mode 8033s-ii with it. DSPeaker's tech department has been very helpful and I hope to get it done this week.
I got the anti-mode working correctly this morning. The whole system sounds great.
