Your invective against me is as fact free as your subwoofer reviews. Why not just do us both a favor: if you can not talk to me without resorting to personal attacks and insults, just put me on ignore.

Sorry but and not being a acolyte of sub reviews i appreciate the time the reviewers put in to it of course we all should take it with a grain of salt and we have the last say . I appreciate Jim reviews they are very informative and plus we have almost the same taste in music so that helps to have a idea of what a sub can do ... do i have to agree to that ??? Depends , my room is different from his but a appreciate the effort and accept his findings .Do i have to agree ?? Not always but that goes with the individual personal opinions .

Now of course i like information like anybody else and i also saw the link that you posted . My findings are that review lacks information and to say at least the all site looks ..... shady .

I understand the OP and for me he is just hyped with his new sub and good for him , what matters is that he likes it . Would i jump and say that he is totally right ... maybe not but you were the one that started the not so good reviews made by someone that you don't agree with ....

With respect to performance, I think you can expect something like the Outlaw EX but knock 3 dB off, and greatly reduce distortion with probably a flatter response, at least in 2 port mode.

Thank you for the very informative and polite response, now that wasn't so hard hard was it? smile.gif

The whole point is OP is stating his opinions and to me he did a good job because he backed up his claims with some others finding the same thing. That does not make him correct, but he is not wrong either.

I am looking myself for a $500-700 subwoofer, I have a room that should be very easy to fill with rumble. The room is 10' by 11' with 8' ceilings. The SB-1000 and PB-1000 are definitely on my short list, because the attributes the SVS possess as well as the reviews make them easy to go with in this budget.

I am between those and the HSU VTF-2 MK4, with the MK5 not too much more and maybe worthy of consideration. Outlaw looks to be a good option as well but I think I cannot go far wrong with any of these.

I think people on AVS make too many snide comments and say things that upset others, often with childish potshots and the like following. Keep it civil, agree to disagree and quit flaming the OP for his use of caps....I did not realize science forums were for grade school kids? Because that is what a lot of this is starting to sound like tbh. If the OP thinks a $100 Yamaha subwoofer is the best he has ever heard in his life, so be it. He has a lot of valid points and I would go on to say the case of the SVS PB-1000 does indeed make it a killer sub for that price, maybe hard to beat unless you are trying to fill a castle with ridiculous bass.

Carry on...
