Hm, try to contact them tomorrow and see if they have Sub Series 300 and try to change it. If not then I'll just maybe give it a go and save that extra 600USD and try to save more and then go for SVS from dealer in Italy and have 2 subwoofers (on their site it is 2000Eur, that's a little bit over 2600$) and have 5.2 surround. Anyway thanx for the help provided and I'll let You know what's my final decision.

but is Subseries 300 better than 308?

I would definitely say yes! The 308 dual PR’s will contribute to the drivers output at just above tune and generally take over below, thus bringing in the tune lower than one could achieve in a enclosure that size going with the traditional port or slot vent. To achieve that tune (26hz) isn’t going to require a high output long throw low distortion xmax driver. I see it only comes in at 24 lbs, so that’s a good indication right there. The PR’s need to match the driver also. Anyway without going on a rant about how I do like the PR alignment, I too would go with the 300. Brave brought the 300 up around here about 6-8 months ago and I’ve been impressed with what I see and hear so far. I think it’s bigger brother is one of the nicest looking SW I have seen, top 25% anyway. The 300 has a much beefier driver and 12” versus 8”. It can’t compete. If it were my choice to make, I would easily pay the extra $200 and go with the PSB. Klipsch does have a dual PR option that I think they did it right with, but it costs 3-4 G’s.

OK,

Haven't been here for a while but here is what I did in the end.
I returned my Klipsch SW-308 and changed it for NAD C356 BEE cos I couldn't get my money back.
Then I sent an email to SVSound in Italy and they told me that they will ship it to Croatia for free! smile.gif
You know what happend in the end? I bought my PB13-Ultra and got it a week ago. I just set it up this Friday night and I didn't have too much time to play with it and tomorrow morning I'm heading for England for next 10 days.
Now I wan't to ask You several question cos I'm not so into audiophile settings like You guys are and I need a bit of help here.
Before I start here is rest of my setup:

Onkyo TX-NR 709
Klipsch RF-63
Klipsch RC-64
Klipsch RS-52 II
SVS PB13-Ultra smile.gif

My first question is about the settings of my AVR. I know that now I have to put my fronts to small and I've been to Merlin quick start guide on SVS offical site where it states that I should put my fronts to crossover frequency to 60HZ is that correc? For now on my current setup with Audyssey Auto Calibration that I made on Friday night I left it on 40Hz, should I change it to 60Hz? When I started calibration with Audyssey on my Onkyo it stated that I should lower volume on my SVS to -75Db and on the TV it stated that it was currently -93Db. Now should I recalibrate it again and if so how can I reduce SVS level to -75Db? Is there any other options I should set in my SVS 'cos I have seen that it has a small screen with options on its backpanel. Second of all what about my volume, I've seen that Audyssey has reduced volume of all my speakers (fronts, center and surrounds), should I leave it like that? Cos I have to volume up my Onkyo up to 60% to get the system going.

Any help for my settings is very much appreciated.

Great!!! you somehow managed to snag PB13-Ultra. That btw is the best investment; you would realize long time from now. Anyway, get done with your UK trip,,,,,,,,,,there are plenty on this forum who'll walk you through the setting up process. Till then, happy ULTRA wet dreams wink.gif
