I recently upgraded my speakers from Mirage OMD 5 and OMD C1 to Def Tech SM 55 and CS-8040Hd, it was a huge improvement in sound. So I am thinking, my current subwoofer is a Mirage S10, if I was to get the SVS PB12NSD sub, would that be a big improvement is sound too ? I have no stores where I live to hear the SVS sub. I think the Mirage S10 sub is pretty close in sound to the Energy S10 sub, so if someone has the Energy and the SVS they could give me an idea too.

Thanks

I've had experience with both the older PB12-NSD and with the S10.3 and the PB12 easily dug deeper, played louder and hit harder. The newer PB12 should easily outperform the Mirage.

Yeah, the SVS will give you a lot more bass depth and output. And it sounds great too (not that the Mirage subs were bad, but the SVS's sound quality will be effortless)

Well I got the SVS sub yesterday. I miss Purolator dropping it off so I had to go to the depot. Had to take the sub out of the box to get it in my car. The sub is a big improvement compared to my current sub. I watch the motorcycle chase scene in the movie The Dark Knight Rises, I could feel sound constantly hitting my legs, it was a better sound than at the movie theatre. I could hear the sub sound effects when watching tv at normal volume levels, with my older sub, it had to be loud and then the sound was muddy. I am glad I bought this sub.

Forgot to ask this question. I have the sub set to auto, when I turn the avr off, how long does it take for the green light to go out ? After I turned it off I waited for 10 minutes and it was still on, then I went to bed.

Congrats on the new sub! cool.gif

IIRC, my old PB10- and PB12-NSD subs took somewhere around 15-20 minutes to go into standby mode once they stopped getting a signal.
