PSA XV15se and currently have the Outlaw LFM-1 Plus. I placed the sub in my best corner, driver facing the wall at about 11" away. This thing performs like an angry pit bull backed into a corner. It was easy to get dialed in for everything, movies, games and music. It is easily better than my Outlaw LFM-1 Plus, which does a darn good job when in the same corner. I've been playing Tomb Raider on PS4 tonight and the gunfire, explosions, heartbeats, everything are insane. The extension, clarity and output from this sub is excellent. Highly recommended.
Hey - how is the PB-2000 for music? Does it ever get boomy or overwhelming ? Or does it disappear into performance just like they say ? And how is the low end extension when playing just relaxed - more quietly ? Could you give me that info ?
Due to this thread I'm more and more wanting the PB-2000 although my room is smaller - 1550 cubic feet. The thing is I believe in "no such thing as too much power", I'm just scared that it might sound boomy in my room.
Now another question to everyone :
I soo much want to be able to enjoy my 20-something Hz music while playing modest enough to not disturb the people under me but still fell it a bit .. would the ported model do better than the sealed in this case? Every salesman I met is telling me about how loud sealed subs can get without distortion. My purpose is to feel the deep humm while listening to music at pleasant volume levels and to have that power reserve for, say, movies like Pacific Rim
Correct me if I'm wrong - if one sets the crossover to, say, 50 Hz - shouldn't this significantly remove boominess possibility? I've read somewhere that this irritating boomy bass notes start a little higher than 50 Hz, am I right ?
