Saw this on SlickDeals, currently have a Rythmik Audio LV12R on its way to me.

Would this be a better option for me?

Space is approximately 2000^3 ft.

Never auditioned the LV12R, but have heard good things for it's price. The PC12-NSD was reviewed a couple years back by soundandvision.com and they compared it very closely to the PSA XV15, which has made a brief reappearance in PSA's legacy section for the price of $699. The PC12-NSD was originally a $749 sub, so this possible last batch ever, priced at just $499, would seem like a better sub, better price and better warranty than the Rythmik.

edit: looks like this one is OOS now. Like the old auctioneer said..."you snooze, you lose." lol

Thank you for the information, sorry that I missed the obvious great deal though.

I have 3 XV15se so I can do a direct comparison. I would say the XV15 is a superior sub no doubt, several here had both and confirmed, but for 499.00 this is the deal of the year and some....hence why I bought one for the garage. I almost went with a Legacy XV15 for the garage, but I did not want to spend 699.00 and the foot print was a little large. This PC will fit under my work bench and not take up much floor space. Oh the neighbors are going to love me.

I have/use dual PC12-NSD's in my 2160 cubic foot room. I think they do a very nice job. They give me all the low-frequency "rumble" I want without being pushed hard at all. Heck, I've hit the limiters (red-light) on them only ONCE. And that was when I was listening to a bass-heavy fight/weapon scene at 0 db level. I just wanted to try at that level to see what they would do. It was pretty much too loud to listen to. The loudest I usually listen to movies is at a -10 to -15 db level. I'm quite happy with this model sub.

Received my PC-12NSD today. The sub came boxed pretty well....It was single cardboard box that had 2" thick foam pads supporting the sub. The sub was then wrapped in a thick plastic bag with a thick paper wrapping to protect the fabric shell. After Unboxing and hooking it up I must admit I was a bit underwhelmed. However I knew not to worry as I have been down this road before. After a hour or so of tweaking and adjusting the setup manually for a 2.1 garage setup, I was off to the races. This baby rocks...tight and very clean!!! From 2.5 meters(7-8 feet) I was hitting 113-115db peaks in the 40-80hz range playing electronic bass music. I then Played a 20hz test tone and was able to muster 104-105db @ 20hz before output would no longer increase. I could not get this sub to make a bad noise, the limiter definitely clamps output well before any distortion occurs. The more thought I give this I do think it is a good thing for SVS to employ... for the simple fact to protect the sub from setup errors due to room correction(xt32) over boosting the low end and those running a single sub excessively hot.

Would I say it is as powerful as one of my XV15se...not a chance, but I really like its sound signature and would not say one is better then the other in that department. Both seem to have similar extension and are very clean, but the XV15se simply has more horsepower.

If SVS releases another batch of these for 499.00 do not hesitate! This thing is a steal at that price!!

Yep...gotta have bass when I am outside working. I have a lot of distance between my house and the neighbors anyway. Never had a complaint yet with 128-130db peaks coming from the living room system. I am however respectful and do not crank it up at late hours on week nights and very seldom do I listen that loud anyways.

Got my PC12-NSD the other day and it was actually larger in person than I was expecting. I had thought I would use it with my PC set up, but it proved too tall and blocked one of my bookshelf speakers on a stand. Ended up swapping out the PC12-NSD in place of the PB12-NSD in the living room, then using the PB12-NSD with my PC set up. I did compare the PC and PB in the living room and the PC seemed to have a little less output at the same gain level as the PB. Also, I now have more rattles present with the down-firing PC in the living room as compared to the front firing PB w/isolation feet installed.

I was also surprised how large it was. I can only imagine how large a PC13 is. I had to place a mat under mine as it was trying to bounce off the floor when driven hard.

Well I know the PC must appear large, not just to me. My wife, who hasn't really ever mentioned any of my previous subs being large, made the comment that the PC12-NSD was really big. She even asked me how much it cost, with the inflection in her voice that she feared it was very expensive. I told her it was 2 grand, which about sent her over the edge immediately. I had to quickly tell her the real price to prevent the volcano from full eruption.

I have the 12 plus and at first glance it seems large but you'd be amazed at how many people I have come over that don't even notice it sitting in the corner of my 13x14 room.

It's the opposite of children, heard but not seen.
