Also Arin, is the 8" 300 watt deeper than the 12" 225 watt subwoofer? There is a $20 difference. I have heard the 12" is good for music but not home theater where I can't find any good reviews on the 8" that have also reviewed the same 12" and had a good comparison.
Hi, well, comparing these 2 subwoofers is like trying to compare a sports car to a luxury sedan. They are both excellent, yet very different. Here is a review on the SUBCOMPACT 6, the Subcompact 8 is it's big brother. They aclled the smaller , lower cost Subcompact 6 "ASTONISHING" in this review. The Subcompact 8 is outstanding for music. It goes down somewhat deeper in bass than the PSSUB 225. However, the PSSUB 225 will play louder and can fill a larger space better. So, it depends on what you want. If you want a great music sub in an area 350 square feet or less, I think you would prefer the Subcompact 8. If you want a louder sub or have a larger room, than the PSSUB 225 would meet be a better choice. Try and rememember what you see as only $20.00 for this spectacular WOOT special is compressing 2 products who sell normally for $100 difference. So, both are excellent, but it depends on your needs. Also, if the other speakers in the system have less than 6" drivers (woofers) the balance to the Subcompact 8 would be best. If you are working with 8", 10" or larger woofers for front speakers the 12" PSSUB 225 is a better choice. Finally, if you have the additional money, the BABY BOOMER is the best for overall volume and depth of bass, and would normally cost at least $300 more than either of these 2 subs. In this sale, it is just an extra $100 or so. To Sum up, Movies larger room higher volume, take the PSSUB 225, Music smaller room, accurate bass and depth of bass, take the Subcompact 8, have an extra $100 grab the Baby Boomer.
I hope that helps clarify. http://pinnaclespeakers.com/revu_subcompact6.html
