I wish I could hear both but it's not an option.
I was dead set on the PB12 Plus after talking to SVS but then I know someone who has the Mc Cauley 18" in storage. I won't be able to listen first due to distance from me, prob meeting half way on the side of the road if I get it.
Up to now I've mostly focused on 2 channel audio caring only about quality. Then I added on theater items going to 5.1 and got a good KEF sub that sounds nice and has a fair bit of rumble but have been craving something to slam you in the chest without sounding like crap.
If SVS is the best route, I can do that but was intrigued by the Mc Cauley, the driver by itself was $800ish when new and quite a few people have done DIY's with it. I just don't know enough about what matters in a high end sub to understand if it's the route to go.
Can I ask why the Mc Cauley isn't suited to sub use in a theater?
Thanks for your help. If this is better in the DIY could a mod move it there?
