I've been in contact with SVS throughout the day and sent them a video of the problem. They have been helpful and I'm confident that we will get it fixed or swapped.

Ryan's setup better than a movie theater? Lmao! His rig is in a whole different league. It's something you have to experience in person. Word's can't describe just how clean and dynamic it truly is.

Hey gentlemen!

I'm selling my SVS PB-10 NSD if anyone in here might be interested?

PM me for details.

Thanks,

Well, still working with SVS to fix the issue. Either the amp is bad or it just won't do what I want it to - which is unfortunate since I loved my single PB12-NSD that
always delivered. I have been working with the wife to get the Ultra. I guess we will see .

I am convinced there is just something wrong with the sub. If you like the PB12-NSD, the PB12 Plus should blow you away. I have had a PB12-NSD and a PB2000, and the PB2000 was noticeably better than the PB12 NSD. The Plus should be noticeably stronger than the PB2000, and hence much stronger than the NSD. So if you are not noticing a strong improvement there must be something wrong. Which is good news assuming you can remedy the issue.

I hope you are right. I'm finding myself discouraged as they have told me the sound I'm hearing is a product of the limiter kicking on and introducing artifacts. I drove my NSD to the brink all the time - the limiter would come on but I was none the wiser as the sub sounded phenomenal.

From what I've read most SVS owners that have the 800 and 1000 sledge amps have the gain between -10 and -18. My Ultra is at -17. Sub trim was set at -4 after calibration. I bumped it up 4 so now its at 0 on my Denon.

Well, the wife agreed to me getting the Ultra. I did have to agree to no audio purchases for 2 yrs. good thing I just upgraded virtually everything I had, so I should make it. I'm not looking forward to getting this beast back in the box and lugging it to FedEX to ship it, but I'll do it for an Ultra.

One thing nearly everyone agrees on however is that you shouldnt run the sub volume on the + side in the AVR.

I put the initial gain setting on my PC12+'s amp at -16, which resulted in an AVR sub level of -6.0 after running AudysseyXT ... I then boosted the PC12+'s amp gain to -6 for bass heavy iTunes content ( tactile sensations :-) ... for all other content (Netflix, classical music and opera DVDs & Blu-rays) I adjust the bass downward by decreasing the AVR's sub level to around -8.5 or -9.0.

This approach was given the OK by 3 different SVS reps ... I called them to make sure I wasn't putting the PC12+ in harm's way.

Normal ... wasn't even aware of this switch :-)

accessed the manual, and discovered it to be set at normal (default) ... seems like the Hi-level option is for either really high-end or professional set ups

congrats on the WAF green light you received for the (PB13?)Ultra ... I just got the green light this morning to upgrade my exercise room speakers (DefTech SM45 refurbs) to another pair of MartinLogan LX16s. Amazon is selling them new (in dark cherry) for $240 per speaker ... these are the speakers that preceded their Motion15 bookshelf speakers (MSRP of $425 each) and are essentially the same. I got my current pair of LX16s for just over $500 on eBay a year and a half ago ... I was able to explain what an opportunity this is :-)

Just a little praise.
Running the SVS PB-1000 via LFE output via a Denon X-2000 AVR. Fronts and surrounds are DefTech ProMonitor 800's with DefTEch ProCenter 1000.

I have had several subs in my home in the past few years: AV123 MFW-15, PSA XV15(non-upgraded), Def Tech ProSub1000, Rythmik LV12R, and a couple others.
I just received a new SVS PB-1000 for my downstairs mid level home theater. Approximately 3300sq ft room with one doorway and drop ceiling.
I was a little hesitant to see if the PB-1000 could fill it but the CS rep convinced me it would be great.

Well, let me tell you it is more than great. Its accuracy and deep room-filling bass is probably the best I have had in my home. PSA is great and more power but the SVS is so "real" and accurate I can't believe my ears. No hum, no audio artifacts, no pops or crackles. Responds right away and wakes up very quickly when in "Auto" mode. The amp plate seems to run pretty cool too. My previous MFW-15 was hot enough to fry and egg even in standby mode!

Hurry up and grab one or two of these before they realize the price they are selling it at is a steal. LOL!
This is one phenomenal piece of AV equipment and I am more than happy with my purchase.

Good to hear. I ordered a pb-1000 just a couple of days ago, should have it tomorrow. The only subwoofers I've had previously were two budget velodnye 10 inchers and a couple of diy efforts and all were rubbish, just a lot of distortion really. Seems like I might actually get some decent bass this time, at the very least it should be an improvement.

Wish I could say the same, but I did get the email saying they've shipped my SB12-NSD today! It splits the difference between the SB-1000 and SB-2000, and because it's from teh outlet, I got it for practically the same price as a SB-1000. Can't wait.

I compared the SB-1000 side by side with the SB12-NSD and to my ear, in my room, the SB-1000 sounds much better so that's the one I've kept. I'm very happy with it in my open floor plan living room that's roughly 14x19. For some reason I couldn't get the SB12-NSD to sound as good as the 1000 though I did like the piano gloss finish.

I'm not trying to discourage you at all, every room and person is different. Just offering a bit of comparison between the two. The NSD sounded less powerful to me and not quite as controlled if that makes sense. I have a few placement options and still couldn't get it to match the quality of the 1000. I listen to everything except country (though mostly hard rock) so both subs had a variety of genres tested.

I feel I would have been happy with the NSD but I'm glad I did my comparison because that little SB-1000 is awesome!
