You get a SVS cylindrical sub because you (a) need a smaller footprint and/or (b) your room location needs a down-firing sub. In all other cases (the need for a horizontal-firing sub), the box versions (PBs) give you better room coupling and a smaller footprint.
That is precisely the reason that SVS makes the two different versions of their subs - so owners have the choice to correctly fit the room.
Claus, thank you for taking the time to respond. I understand your confusion with my request, so I will show you the pic of the space I am trying to occupy. This room is my main room, so if stood vertically it would be a potential eye-sore....if laid on its side, it would nicely occupy that long strip of space.
I was amazed how when I pushed that 15" wide velodyne to the end of the sectional and moved the sectional closer to that wall (as that best fits the room), I litereally lost 30% of room gain and the sub sounded so weak (as compared to corner placement). Example:
I than realized that i would be loosing 30% of a sub from moving it out of that back right corner. I called another AVS member over a few weeks ago to hear the difference and he was blown away.
My other option would be to try and squeeze 2 smaller square subs in both back corners of the room (maybe PB10s...or one PB10 and one PB12:
I am amazed at the sheer volume of the PC series....ACTUALLY, WAIT, I just had an epiphany after calculting the volumes of the various SVS power subs:
Here is a comparison of the cubic volume of the various subs:
PB-NSD 10: 5985
PB-NSD 12: 9450
PC 12: 7038
PC 12+: 8043.52
PC ultra: 9250
Wow, I thought that the PC series had more volume but I guess i was wrong. Hmmm, I guess it may be worth to find someway to sqeeze in a PB12-NSD in that corner. Thanks again.
