I currently have 2 of these mated with the gear in my sig (which also includes a set of klipsch RB 61). My theatre won't be built for another 6 months so for now i have to contend with a family room completely open to one side leading into the kitchen.
I'm fairly certain once the theatre is built the acoustics will be significantly better, but for now I want to be sure that the 1 SVS PB12 NSD can make up for the two klipsch subs.
As always thank you for reading and thank you for your feedback.
I had the same as you, got rid of both for a Rythmik FV15HP......my reaction is wow, just wow. It's crazy the difference in bass, those SW-110's are almost a distraction from the good sound of the mains and surround. I'm extremely happy with my one Rythmik, but after I run out of other upgrades I'm sure I could fit a second!
The PB12-NSD will dig substantially deeper than the Klipsch subs, and I suspect it will have greater overall output as well.
If you think that you may go duals down the road in your HT but that you won't have the budget for a second PB12 - and assuming your HT space isn't going to be massive - you may want to consider going with the PB-1000 instead:
- 10" driver
- 300W RMS amp
- 19-270Hz +/-3dB
- $499, shipped, for one (or $949 shipped for duals)
It will give you most of the PB12's performance (according to Ed Mullen of SVS), and with duals you'll get better FR across the main listening position.
