You are going to be a happy camper. I received mine about 3 weeks ago and the wife and myself have been loving it for movies and some music. We watched Thor last weekend and I was genuinely concerned about my houses stability.

Yeah. I've had my PC12-NSD for a month and the only issue is when, not if, but when, I'll get my first Angry Neighbor Visit.

Received my new SVS PB12-NSD on the 1st. The wife and I watched Drive on Tuesday and this thing is amazing. There was some serious low frequency bass in the crash scenes. Definite improvement over the Klipsch rw-12d. Happy camper here.

It was actually the 30th that I received the sub. I'm on call 24/7 and I really can't keep dates straight anymore. Anyway, regardless of what day I got it this sub rocks!

Just got my PB12 NSD two days ago to replace my Sunfire True Signature sub. So far i am very happy with it. I backed down the gain last night to around 10 O' clock.

Here it is next to my Sunfire.

Audioholics recently posted their review of the pb12nsd.

http://www.audioholics.com/reviews/s...ofers/pb12-nsd

Solid performance for a $770 sub. It may not be the loudest 12" sub available, but it posts an amazingly linear frequency response profile with low distortion even at its limits. SVS really sets the standard for matching claimed specs (unlike many other sub makers)

Oh man that thing is huge!

I'm trying to decide between the pd12nsd and the sb12nsb. The price is very similar, $650-$700 for the SB and $750 for the PB (I'm in Canada FYI). Obviously the PB is significantly bigger, which is a bit of a downfall, can someone post a picture of their PB in their room with the TV and everything so I can get a reference for it's size in a HT set up?

I'd say I'd be using this for 40% HT, 40% gaming and 20% music. Thoughts?

nunnster, what I would advise..... note the sub's dimension specs, and make a cardboard box the size of the PB12, then you can see for yourself how much room it takes

If you can fit the box, always choose the larger sub because there are very noticeable gain in performance from a larger ported box, but if you can't fit it, then the SB12NSD is no slouch either.

For an extra $100.00 more your getting twice the sub...literally and figuratively speaking....

Based on your criteria go with the pb12....

thanks guys, hopefully it won't be too long before I can actually afford one!

Additional note: I don't yet, and hopefully no time soon, have to consider the WAF, so the ported sub will probably be the way to go!

Have been debating on either the HSU or the PB12 NSD. I'm now leaning toward the PB12. For the money I can get two of the PB12 for what I will get with one HSU. I know the HSU is bigger and probably louder and will give me headroom but I hear the performance of the PB12 is amazing. My room is 11'x22 and that should be plenty for that and more. I do like the fact that the HSU gives you more options. The wattage is also 600 RMS on the HSU. That's one powerful Sub. Choices. I like having future advancements when buying things like this even if it means paying more. I spoke with Ed though and he seems like a nice guy and I like the fact that SVS will walk you through your setup and tuning of your sub. Nice... I will need it.

Keep in mind that a single PB12nsd would still have more output than two SB12nsds below 30hz. Above that dual SBs will play louder

Here is my new PB12 NSD in the corner. I just sold my Klipsch RF7's and went with the Paradigm millenia One's. The sub would not have gone in the corner with the RF7's as there would be no room.
