MODERATOR PLEASE DELETE THIS THREAD...I'm going to re-post in the SVS owner's thread

Could you please detail the output differences between the SB12-NSD and PB12-NSD. If you have them, graphs would be great. Or if not, output (or output differences) at various points, 25Hz, 30Hz, etc.; also indicating the methodology please.

Would also be very interested in any data/description concerning differences in the distortion realm, between the two.

Thanks in advance for any help.

He has commented on dual sb12 to single pb12. Co-located duals +6db.

http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1407855

"Dual SB12-NSD will have more mid/upper bass slam/impact than a single PB12-NSD.

A single PB12-NSD will extend deeper and will have more clean output at the very deepest frequencies (18-25 Hz).

Which option is best for you really depends on your particular application (room size, listening preferences, and overall playback level)."

http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1407172

"Dual SB12-NSD is a potent little package - considerably stronger than a single PB12-NSD down to ~32 Hz, within 3 dB @ 25 Hz, and only about 5-6 dB down @ 20 Hz.

And you get the benefit of overlapping room modes and a smoother FR at more listening positions. It's a really nice option for smaller room where low visual impact is desired."

Graphs for both are under the tech specs on each sub's webpage. Both have limiters so low distortion as seen by the pb on data-bass.

Can always e-mail or call SVS if don't get reply on SVS owners thread or here.

Another answer by Ed:
"That is correct - a single SB12-NSD can hit ~92 dB @ 20 Hz @ 2M GP per CEA-2010 measurement protocol."
