Also: "Elysium" and "Gravity" among others, feature extended scenes with loud-ish sub 30Hz content. Not just explosions, which makes it easier to tell the more subtle effects the sub add to your system.

The opening titles from "Day after tomorrow" contains a couple of nice sub bass transients with a large dynamic range (the big drum). This will be clearly audible with capable full-range speakers. But with a good sub added, it will shake your windows and make you jump you from your seat.

Will call SVS when they're open tomorrow, but I'm freaking out--and maybe I'll get a response tonight?

So I lost all sound out of my PB-2000. I run an Onkyo 805, and a miniDSP 2x4 unbalanced. Removed the miniDSP for testing--still no sound. However, very briefly I could get "fits" of sound by not rotating, but "jiggling" the gain knob on the sub. Does that makes sense? Tried the whole range from 7 o'clock to 5o'clock.

Same for what appeared to be a fully seated RCA cable to the LFE input. Swapped the cable (was it bad?), still no improvement.

Took a resistance reading of both cables on a multimeter--they're good. Checked the AVR output--it measured 0.9V playing a -3dBFS 60Hz tone directly to the sub with AVR main volume at 0.

I have a dog-**** hand-me-down sub that functions just fine off the same output. I know this really seems like my PB-2000 died/went defective, but the "comes back with jiggling" confuses me. At least it did--the jiggling does nothing now... The sub was purchased 11 months ago.

Does this happen? Is this a thing?

Did you get a reply from SVS? Any updates on your situation? Sounds like something failed or is failing in the amp. It happens. I am sure SVS will take care of you.

Yes, spoke with SVS and they are sending me out a new amp section. Will report back on the result...

Heads up i do not have a question.

I ordered my SB-2000 last Thursday on sale for Memorial Weekend from the outlet. The package arrived two days ago. Of course i was so excited and compared to my ported Paradigm PDR10 i turned the gain way up and played some loud music and scenes to finally listen to this sub i had wanted for 6 months. After my initially session i am adjusting to the lack of boom and I keep turning down the gain of this sub. This sub is solid, while my previous sub would have boom, now i have a good LFE sound and i feel it much more. It is definitely cleaner and tighter and while my Paradigm was solid it was an entry level sub that i should have never have settled for because i knew i wanted something more.

My setup is currently in my open concept main floor which is a kitchen and living room. I bet the sound will get better when we carpet the basement where the home theater will go which is not open concept and has sound dampening in the ceiling.

So I got the amp section, and after borrowing a suction tile-lifter from work (later learned a nail would have sufficed) I got the defective plate out and the new one in. Only 3 connections to make-quite simple really.

Sub again works like a charm. Great service.

Hi guys, a quick question...

I received my SB-2000 a couple days ago to replace a Mirage BPS-150. It is connected between my pre amp and a power amp on my centre channel to give a full range centre. The levels all work out fine, volume on about 1 o'clock and LPF set to ~90 - 100. It is set to auto and is plugged into a switched outlet on a Panamax 5400.

The performance is great, but I have noticed that there tends to be a hissing noise coming from the sub after it is on for a while. When it turns on first, it is dead quiet. I was wondering if this hissing (ocean roar, low frequency) noise is normal for this model. It does not seem to change level when altering any of the controls. My Mirage OM-6 L / R speakers, with powered dual 8" subs also have a little of this noise, but at a lower level. I do not remember the noise with the BPS-150 and there is no noise from my Mirage BPS-400 LFE sub. I just wanted to see from you guys if this behavior is normal before getting in touch with SVS.

Thanks for any assistance you owners can supply.......

Cheers,
phannon

Why would you connect a subwoofer on center pre-out between pre and power? Just set your center to small, and let the AV pre do bass management and route it to the dedicated subwoofer RCA jack.

I have full range speakers all around and a dedicated LFE sub.

Originally when I replaced the BPS-150 LFE sub with the BPS-400 sub, I had the extra sub and decided to give it a try. Up to that point, I had the centre set to small (all other positions full range). With the BPS-150 sub "in line" with the centre channel, making it now full range, it sounded much more balanced and I prefer it that way. Having full range speakers all around also works better (for me anyway) for 5.1 music. So, I have the equivalent of 5 subs plus the LFE to distribute the low frequency information throughout the room. Just wondering about the hissing noise from the sub......it is not heard through the "centre speaker", only the sub

I don't have the SB2000.

Do you use a 6 channel PEQ to sort out the subs?
