If I'm dissatisfied with the SB-1000 (and I don't plan to be...I'm not much of a bass-head and I listen at low-moderate volumes generally) I'll trade-up to the 2000 later this year.
Edit: and not two hours later an outlet SB-12 NSD pops up for $480. Just switched my order over to that instead!
The SB12-NSD is basically the same sound signature as the SB-1000 but just "better," correct? I guess something about the fact that it's an older, now discontinued model makes me feel like maybe the SB-1000 is "better" and favored at this point. Did I make the right call going with the SB12 over the 1000?
The SB12-NSD was replaced by the SB2000. The SB12-NSD has 100w more power than the SB1000, a little larger cabinet and will go slightly lower in frequency. I think you made a good choice with the SB12-NSD.
