It would only be an upgrade if you plan on keeping both of them.

Get the Rhythmik LV12-r if you can afford the extra dough. It's worth it over the pb1000.

That is wise. Save your money. Get what you want.

Now we're getting off topic. There's an SVS and Rhythmik thread.
Just a note. The LV12r is now on sale for $569.

I missed the JBL Sub 550P for $199 from Amazon Prime. Right now, the Sub 550P is $599 (Less than a buck off!) in black. If you can stand cherry wood finish (I doubt that it is wood veneer...), you can still get it for $289 Prime - which is what I just did. Mine will replace a Polk PSW505 that primarily is on for disaster movies. The HT's five Infinity P363's do pretty well, bass-wise, on everything but disaster movies. The Polk works fine - it just rattles (And it's on a carpeted concrete floor!) too much - I like the thud of an acoustic suspension type bass much more than BR hangover. I may just try it in my office to supplement my pair of NHT SuperOne 2.1's first... primarily music there. I think they have ten left - fulfilled by 'Woot', although there is no mention of there being 'seconds' - probably just a discontinued finish (Cherry isn't a choice on JBL's site!). I'll find out Wednesday!

I'm probably one of the few who have owned both of these subs. In my experience, they were both very close in output and extension. I did feel the Klipsch was just a bit tighter sounding, especially for music. 3 factors decided in favor for the Klipsch for me. 1. When pushed, the NXG would exhibit some port chuffing. 2. The NXG sub auto on/off performed poorly. It would go to sleep too quickly and needed a much stronger signal than most other subs to wake it up. 3. The NXG was more expensive. The Klipsch sub-12 cost me $200 and the BAS-500 cost me $270. Winner, Klipsch sub-12

I got the Cherry version for $199 and have it near field with a NXG that is corner loaded.
Sounds pretty good to me.
