Thanks, Dom.

Approximately, what volume levels would I need to listen to make this (dual HSU STF-2 to dual SVS PB-2000) a good upgrade?

The same volume levels at which the distortion becomes perceptible to the listener.

Plus I can't really hear/feel any difference between the 2 subs.
Hello,
I' just received my PB 2000 and I have the same issue...
Could you update your thread to say if it was an amp issue ?

Thanks and regards

I think my amp is going out also. When I run Audassy the mic can not heard my sub at the 12 o'clock position. Audassy asks me to level match and I have to turn the sub volume full blast and still can't get it to 75db. The loudest it will register is 68db. Has anyone else had this problem?

If you have a subwoofer in a lousy spot in your room, you'll have to increase the gain more so than a good location or perhaps a corner to achieve the same dB.

Talked to SVS they are sending me a new amp section. Excellent customer service! I would recommend them to anyone!

Sounds like what happened to my SB-1000. At first it hurt my ears, then I couldn't get much output even turned the gain all the way. Returned, since I bought locally, waiting for new shipment.

If you have a rca to headphone jack cable you can check out the amp on the sub very easily.

Yes they work. I got some for my pb2000s and I have hard wood Floors and I noticed a significant difference.

Why is it not advisable to run avr trim past 0?

Thanks

Most AVRs clip the sub signal above 0db.

Thanks for the response. What do you mean by clip the signal and is there a way to determine which AVR does this?
