[QUOTE=accordex;25239186]Hey guys, so I got my PB-2000 setup the other day. I have a couple other questions, hopefully someone can help.
So this is replacing my bic F-12.
The bic, while it doesn't do below 25-30hz too well, it does 30 to 35 and up really really well. It fills the room completely and hits very hard. Now the bic, has never been turned past 12 o clock (50%)...that's almost too loud.
My new pb-2000 is almost inaudible at 50%... it's on and plays, but the woofer just sort of vibrates. It doesn't move. I went to watch a movie and had to turn it up all the way to about 3:30 75-80% to get it moving and putting out good rumble when the scenes called for it.
The only way to get that chest pounding great bass was to play a bass mekanic video off of YouTube, again at about 75% volume.
What am i doing wrong? I've gotta be missing something here. Do you guys all keep your sub gain at 80%?
I also split the signal and ran both and at 50% volume, the bic is killing the svs.
I'm not posting this to sh$$ on the sub btw, but with the $600 difference here, i could use some pointers on tuning this thing.

Receiver sub level at 0db
Thanks in advance guys. Let me know what i can do and what volumes you run.[
This normal. I run my PB12 Plus at 75% and did the same when I had a PB12-NSD. Once you turn it up to where it comes alive, you will experience something very special - bass that is authorative and musical. My old sub only went boom.
