I saw that PB12 in the outlet and wished it had been there when I went for the SB12-NSD, except I'm growing to really like this sealed sub, as does my new roommate, for both quality and lack of shared boom. Hope you enjoy your PB12!

I finally figured out after a long time, that my sub problem or AVR problem was a bad cable problem. So my PB-1000 is rocking again. It reminded me of how much I love this sub.

I'm going to look at buying a used cylinder, and the seller is willing to demo it for me before purchase. Is there anything in particular I should listen for or visually inspect in order to ensure it is okay? Any common problems I can check for?

Also, it is an older model PC13 with the analog amp, is there a significant difference in performance or anything else I should be worried about with it?

That is great when you can figure out yourself, cable is easy swap and sub is rocking again, good for you!!!

No need to spend a lot of money on a sub cable or speaker wire. About $10 will get you a good sub cable. Monoprice, Belkin and Mediabridges are popular brands.

I agree with Bond and a cheap 10 dollar cable will be fine. I myself like to spend an extra 20 dollars and get the SVS interconnect. Nice cable with nylon wrap and don't forget the cool SVS logo on the outer ring. I mean really if your gonna spend 2 grand on a sub why not put a 30 dollar cable to go with it.

I also like more better looking wires I know it is waisting but I like to pay little more (not a lot) for better looking cable. Some people have all wires hidden so then doesn't matter that much but let say if you have nice hardwood floor, expensive SVS sub and you need to see cable why not a good looking one like SVS had.

I was on the website for svs and i took a look at there subwoofer wire's.There measurements are in milimeter's.Like 2 mm or 3 mm or bigger.If my mind is right i think 2 mm is about 10 feet idk i forgot.But i dont need to long of a subwoofer wire .so that's a good thing.
