I'm running Emotiva UMC 200 AND XPA 3, REVEL F208s and REVEL C206. SVS PB13 ULTRA. I'm about 13 feet away from the F208s and about 15 feet from the Ultra. The room at minimum is all open to dinning room an kitchen but my listening area is about 17ft ×18ft. I had a Martin Logan 10 inch sub a while back that seemed to be effective. I know this thing can rock. I'm just trying to sync it up to get that wow factor. I have the F208s crossed over at 50hz, the center at 80hz and the sub at 80hz now. Will the sub be more effective at a higher or lower hz? I talked to SVS about turning the sub gain up from -7. They said to try to use the UMC first. Are the F208s supposed to be at 80hz too? The settings that SVS gave me are the same as what they are set at but they said their numbers associated with the F208s is to set the sub at 120hz. Thanx as I'm limited on time to decide to keep it.

Well you have some very nice speakers. I would still xo everything at 80. Let the sub do the heavy lifting. Disable the low pass and high pass filters on the sub. XO the sub on the UMC to 120hz. Try raising the gain to 0. I know thats maxed out but your room is 2500 cu ft plus its open to other rooms. I'm not familiar with the UMC's calibration setup. Do you have an SPL meter. Can you try running some test tones by just using the sub and measure your db's from lets say 4-6 ft away from it?

Hi all.. I have been enjoying my PB-1000 on the music only system in my sig... I noticed now a few times that when I am playing music very loud and the sub is pumping that I hear a rattle coming from the sub, like the port tubing is rattling inside of the enclosure... It's not shuffing, it's a rattle. I can hear it over the bass very easily.. my cat even heard it, he was on the couch with me and when the next CD came on with more bass and the rattle started he jumped down and started encroaching the sub in an inquisitive stalking manner. It seems to be getting worse now - happening at lower volumes. I guess it's time to contact SVS. I saw a thread from someone who was experiencing the same auditory anomaly on their pb-1000 but there was no resolution at the end of the thread. Anyone here have this issue? I know that port tubing is fairly long inside of the enclosure and takes a good bend.. I am guessing it's just a little loose or something?

Listening: Outlaw Audio 950 | Sony CDPCX355 | 2x Marantz MA-700 + 2x MA-6100 | Energy RC-70 bi-amped + SVS PB-1000

Maybe the -7 you're talking about is the gain on the subwoofer, but I'm not sure. Have you adjusted the gain on both your receiver and Ultra?

If your room is just GIANT like a football stadium, you're not going to hear much regardless of the gain settings, but when I got my first SVS I was very disappointed at first until I found the gain settings.
