Hi all, i recently replaced my Energy ESW V10 subwoofer with the SVS PB Ultra 13.
The SVS obviously being the superior sub.
However due to room constraints im sure Ihavent got it placed in the optimum area and this cant be helped. As a result im sitting in a bit of a null area.

Question is..although the Energy sub was a "decent" sub, it is still vastly inferior to the SVS.

1. Can I pair up the Energy with the SVS to cancel out nulls ?

2. If yes... do they have to be the same distance apart ?

3. Will the Energy sub become a "bottleneck" for my SVS ?

Thanks and much appreciation for all your help guys.

BTW I have a null at 53hz and 70hz.

maybe Santa can? :-)

Honestly try it out and use ur ears! I am using PB13U and a small JBL sub in my room. I have placed the JBL in the back to counter effect a possible null... I still have it but its less now than before..

You could try placing the Energy near field and using it more as a mid bass module.

Ok, thanks guys.

Well definitely try and place the energy at the opposite side. Just didn't want it to limit the svs in any way that's all.
