why is that? A sweep from 10hz to 200hz through the lfe channel over 2.5 secs wont hurt a subwoofer just know the limits of your system and dont run a 20hz sine for more than 2 secs to be safe to protect the VC. But as far as a sweep at 100 db or more on subs that can output 115 db is almost a joke unless doing it continuously over and over.
How else does one check out how their systems for compression and output?

There are movies that are more dangerous to subs then a frequency sweep test and SVS subs are very well protected from high level output spikes so its more about keeping heat from destroying the voice coils which takes time to occur in this case.

Hey guys. I ordered the PB-1000 but unfortunately they sent me the SB-1000. Now I don't really know wheter I should send it back for a change or just keep it. My room size is around 150 square feet. So a small room. I have the Audioengine A5+ speakers. I listen to music, watch movies and play games.


Which one is better in my room. I don't mean which one will be enough for my room but which one will be BETTER for my room? Better quality and so son. Ah and is the SB's bigger driver better than the PB's driver? So can the SB-1000 go lower in my room because of room gain and the bigger driver?


PS.: I don't set the volume to crazy high numbers. I don't have to shake my house

In a small room, sealed box sounds better IMO. SB1000 and PB1000 driver and amp are the same, just one is sealed, one is ported. Watch movies and if you find it incapable with the loudest action soundtracks, change it.

I use a SBUltra 13 in a 900 cu foot room, which is smaller than yours hehehe

Were you charged for PB or SB? As PB is more expensive

I paid for the PB-1000 but they cost the same 499. Am I right? And no the woofer is not the same. The SB-1000 has a 12'' woofer and the PB a 10'' woofer.

You're right I didn't know that, I thought both 1000's are 10", and PB is more expensive.

So do you think the SB-1000 is the better one in my room? And maybe its bigger 12'' woofer is better than the PB's 10''. In a small room with very nice room gain the SB-1000 should be better don't you think so? Does anyone had both of the 1000's? I would really love to hear a comparison.

Ported vs Sealed is always a big question. The first thing I would ask is do you listen to music or movies more? IE witch one do you listen to the most.
IMHO out of the 2 the pb is going to be better for movies. It goes a little lower. The sb is going to be better if you listen to music more. Both are great subs and are real close to the way they perform.
I dont think room size matters in the sealed vs ported thing. Now thats just my 2 cents

Here is a good read from SVS maybe this will help you decide.

I think room size matters since the sealed benefits much more from small rooms than the ported does if I didn't missunderstand it. But I think the music and movie thing is correct. I will use the sub more with music than movies.

Well what it comes down to is if you like the way it sounds and are happy well then that's all that really matters.
Try it out for a week or two watch everything you can and listen to all the albums you enjoy. If your unhappy then SVS will swap it for you and free shipping both ways!

I'd send the SB1000 and get dual SB Ultra 13's. It's only another $2500.

I'm about to buy an SVS PB1000!

I haven't got much space left for the sub.. i was thinking either here:



Would the couch be a problem? Or is it good to absorb the sound?

the other solution would be here next to the right tower but I'm afraid of the stairwell, i mean, im afraid it will bomb downstairs through that and also make vibrate the handrails (they vibrate only if u scream or clap ur hands basically...ahahhaha)



what should I do?

The thing with subs is, there is no right place to put them just by looking at photos. You have to try a few positions and see what sounds best, because every room is different. You can also look up the "sub crawl" method, which is an easy way to figure out the best place for your sub. However you also have to balance practicality, so try the sub in either area and leave it where it sounds best.

The couch won't be a problem. Having the sub fire into the couch will actually help shake the couch more. I have my PB-1000 facing one of my couches and that's the best seat to "feel" the bass.

thanks guys...
ultimately: i can't decide between jamo sub 660 and svs pb1000, 150€ difference, but is there a REAL audible difference? will the svs pb1000 give me more emotions???


EDIT: just ordered the pb1000, seller accepted my offer of 499€ including shipping i made yesterday and raised up the money for everyone else to 549€. I had to take it. Will I be satisfied?

Any well shielded cable will do for a sub cable.

Some even use RG 6 Video cable with RCA ends.

Just a heads up for anybody considering the SB1000, SVS is closing out the SB12-NSD for $469.99. Slightly larger cabinet and 100w more powerful amp than the SB1000. It's a very nice sub for the money.

Just got the SVS PB 1000 last week and I am loving it. I have read it required a break in period (is it 50 hours???) to perform to its full capacity. Awaiting for that sweet period as well!

Has anyone placed the subwoofer along with the cardboard that came with the packing on top & bottom of the woofer like I have placed. Not sure If i can post the image again as I just did in the show your woofer pic thread...

Thanks
