dprice18af -> I have never heard a BIC.

However, I can not see the BIC coming close to the same in performance as the SVS.

The SVS will DEF destroy the BIC below 30hz. But you stated for music... The SVS WILL be tighter with less distortion... By how much... I don't think a whole lot... The main benefit will be the additional extension, less distortion, higher reliability, and will sound a bit better (maybe a lot, but I think your subwoofer is somewhat decent)

The SB2000, will prob not go as loud as your BIC, but will DEF sound a fair bit better.... I think it may be better since you do not care for SPL nor ultra low extension. I feel for your purposes the SB2000 will walk the BIC.

Remember I have not listened to the BIC, just going by experience.

Is anyone using the SB1000 through the speaker level inputs. Curious to know how the sound would be seeing that you can't set the xover level below 50 Hz when used with fullrange speakers

dprice18af -> This may help, though i'd throw it in.

I prefer the SVS PB1000 over the paradigm reference PW 2200 v1 and V3.... Also over ALL the velodyne subwoofers i have own and the Energy s12.3 or w.e it was that was highly regarded at the time. It was good but not great.
