31.5 Hz.....137
40 Hz........138

Room dimensions 28 x 16 x 10

Budget $4k
My list (so far):
SVS PB13-Ultra
Seaton SubMersive HP
Rhythmic FV15HP


Any other suggestions?

At $4K, I wouldn't consider any of those except in duals. At $4k you can get an Orbit Shifter or a Funk 18.3. You might also give Danley Sound Labs a call to see what they can do for you.

A JTR Captivator (or two) should be on your list. Ditto the PSA XV30.

If you don't mind me asking----what happened to the B4?

1 of the drivers (2nd 1 in facing the ports) is rattling when pushed to moderate levels.

I have a few B4s stacked around the house, haven't used them much for a few years but I'm sure I could dismantle one for a driver if you need me too.

Just send me your address support@powersoundaudio.com and I'll have one of the woofs off in the next couple days.

Jim assembled every B4 we sold so he can help with a few tips to make the replacement easier if you decide to just keep the B4.

I'd much rather keep the B4 than start all over again.
So I will see what you can come up with.

Doesn't surprise me in the least.
SVS hands down is the best company I have dealt for CS and tech support.
I just didn't think (obviously) that SVS would be able to help me since the sub is 10 years old.
I should've known better.

Just to clarify: Mr. V. was with SVS, but is currently with PowerSoundAudio. But as PSA sub owners will tell you, he still delivers on customer service. smile.gif

I've been out of the loop the past 5 years.
I haven't post in that long. Learn something new every day.
Guess I will have to take at look at what he is working on now with PSA.

I'd also have to agree that SVS, AKA Ron and Todd, have some of the best CS I have seen in the business. I've even had the pleasure of conversing with them about hot rods on a few different occasions. smile.gif
