I'll stop now so I don't sound too much like a fanboy!

I've owned a few bad subwoofers that made everything sound worse.

Thanks for the reply...

I talked with Ed at SVS, and it seems that the DSP section of the amp will go to sleep and this makes it difficult to wake. The best option seems to be flipping the power switch to on, as opposed to auto for a moment to get it to come on...

Yes it will. I had the pc12 plus & pc20-39 prior to getting the SB13-Ultra. The 13 series is a big upgrade from the plus series. Just watched Oblivion and wow. Very impressed. Michael Jackson's This is it sounded so much better than the pc12 plus that I am thinking the pc13-ultra may not be an improvement over the SB ultra.

Well I just have to tell you all because I just can't believe it. After four years with 4 PB13 Ultras and 2 PB12 Pluses and an ASEQ1 in a 12x12 square room, I finally got my room graph flat. I set the ASEQ1 to 1 in and 1 out, which I have never done (always 1 in and 2 out to the left and right stacks of subs respectively), but out of laziness I thought I'd give it a try, and wham, it is flat. I had the graph certificate up on my laptop for a half hour because I just couldn't believe it. I tried to tell my wife about this momentous occasion, but she just stared at me blankly. You fellas, are the only ones that might care lol.

So i got my klipsch RS-62 II SURROUND'S.And i have to say man these speaker's are big.I am glad i got the surround first over the subwoofer.Thi right now as i am writeing this no joke i am blasting the hobbit desolation of smaug.And let me tell you the sound's i am getting from the surround's are fantastic.I how ever do want to get the svs pb13-ultra still.Man reason i need it I want to feel more power of bass.I feel that the bass in my RF-7 II are a little lover then i thought in bass.Maybe its because the hobbit is more bass driven then it is speaker driven too.IDK i know there is going to be a big different once i get the svs pb13 ultra.I will ost pic soon.just need to do some fixing on my receiver for calabration a little more.

Yes, and with the three Buttkickers in the couch, it's a visceral experience (and now flat!).

stupid and over the top. In a 12' x 12' room dual PB12 Plus would be more than you ever would need. Let alone two Ultra's.

That actually is intelligent input because hes looking at it in a practical way. If it makes you feel good to have far more bass than is necessary for your room that would be emotional.

yeah I'm all for getting quality subs, but 6 high end subs in a medium sized room? Daft! I'd keep the two Ultras, sell off all the others. Or indeed dual SB Ultra 13's. Using SB Ultra 13 in a 800' cu room, you could say that is over the top, well PC Ultra 13 was so I got rid of it. PC Ultra duals in a 3m x 3m room would be way stupid.

Thank you all for your positive comments. My emotional and stupid room is downright incredible. Perhaps if you all could visit you would feel and think differently. And I like the daft comment. Yes I am daft lol.

I don't think Popalock would think it's stupid. But, then again...

It's your setup. If you like it, don't worry about what other people say. People like HTIB's to Popalock system. Telling someone that their system is stupid is just a reflection upon themselves. Enjoy the music!

Says the jealous man who is experiencing extreme bass envy.

Seriously, your comment is the only thing stupid going on.

How would you know what is "more than" anyone would need?

No criticism at all, but I did wonder how you get all the equipment into the room, not to mention chairs? A pic would be terrific, I'd love to see what it looks like. Wouldn't mind hearing it either, but from Denver the impact probably wouldn't be that great.

Yeah I had this same feeling when I got my PS12-NSD. I'm sure a lot went into it. Having good room correction software, towers and center, and sub can really make audio shine. I've been told this, having a good sub and the crossovers set correctly, it allows the sub to handle the hard stuff. It actually made my mid-bass punchier. Maybe that's because the towers can focus more on that. It's pretty amazing though.

No, I do not think your setup is in anyway "stupid" (overkill maybe, but then there's nothing wrong with that... headroom is a good thing... and you have a lot of a good thing). Yes, I am jealous of your subs. And may I offer my condolences to your neighbors...

Funny you mention the neighbors. Since I have moved to the country that has not been a problem (before yes). Now, only my wife complains.
