I have a couple days left to return my PB2000's. Not sure what I'm going to do they sounded good, then I ran MCACC and they sound like crap. I'm running Pioneer VSX-1123 and have set the trim to +3, speaker level to 0 and I'm running the subs at 3 o'clock. The bass that I do get sounds muddled, was never able to get that chest pounding people were talking about

So the PC2000 ship date got pushed back from early December to mid December. Had to cancel my order since ill be out of town and decided that the SB2000 has to go back. It is not a right fit for my space, i'll likely order the PC2000 in January - maybe they'll be some reviews by then too.

Why do you want them a foot shorter, SVS must have wanted them that tall for a reason. And does it really matter what your wife says? She has her loves you have yours. She should just be thankful your love is still in the house, and not another woman. lol

I have a question for you guys. Does SVS ever have sales? I'd like to get the SB-2000 (I especially love the metal grill feature) but $699 is a tad above my price range. I'd prefer to cap out at $499 shipped. I didn't see anything for black friday and I'm starting to lose hope.

If getting it on sale is out of the question, what else is comparable or what would you recommend as the best I could get for $499?

I went ahead and ordered the pc2000 today. I'll be sending the sb2000 back. It should ship out tomorrow. Can't wait- I hope it blends in - I can't really picture how it's going to look in my living room. Seeing as my room dimension are 10x15x12 I'm hoping the pc2000 gives me the impact the sb2000 lacked. I will say the sb2000 was a very nice sub though- the gloss piano black was very sexy- I got the pc2000 in gloss as well

Hey all,

Just got my PB-2000, like it so far but I'm confident its not optimized.

For a corner placement, should it literally be as close to the wall as possible? Mine is probably a foot or so out on both sides.

Also, and ideas where I should set hte cross over? I have Martin Logan ESL fronts which have 8" drivers. Audessy puts them at "full band" and it sounds like SVS is recommending 60ish hz.

Thanks!

60hz sounds right but set the speakers to small anyway, you might like that better. Try running REW to see if you placed it right.

I have Polk Audio and it set my speakers at 40HZ and it sounded harsh. 80HZ was the sweet spot for me.
