BTW, my puny SVS 12" sub will compete just fine with the 15" and 18" subs here in performance
I had the PC 13 Cylinder...sold it for $400.
We brought the Hsu over to my theater and WOW even at low listening levels this sub moves and shakes things around. There was a certian scene in Tron that almost busted out a window, it rattled everything in the room. I now have to get some isolators for all my bluray players!
Good thing my projector is isolated or my halogen bulb would of been toast!
The PC played a little bit louder but the Hsu lives below where satan resides! The PB Ultra never had this much feel!
I now know what the the guys in the review meant by "fun factor"! Im puzzled how Dr. Hsu is able to get this bass feel with such little power. It's like he found a way to sacrafice some spl's for more of a tactile feel. To put it one way the PB sounded like the the car subs that drive by...while the Hsu sounds like the same car going down the street but it makes your house rattle with less of the 40hz loudness...which i love! Like i said before...save your money, NO BASS SHAKERS REQUIRED!
I was not able to tweek the sub since i had it for only one night, but it seems i have a bass friendly theater it is 12x23x9 ft sealed and all solid wood walls and ceilings. I think because my theater has wood floors and solid 12x12 planked walls and solid celings(solid wood boxed room) im getting this fantastic bass!
The PC 13 is a GREAT sub but i just love the "feel" of the Hsu better.
