Impressions Operating a Dual SVS SW setup
About a month ago I received the SVS PC12 plus to pair with my 6 year old 20-39PC+. With help from SVS to balance them out and after running Audessey (Marantz SR5005 used as a pre-amp with Outlaw 7 by 200 wattx creating a 7.2 system) I have been playing all sorts of movies.
The Audyssey set the 2 SW's to -7.5 db but as I like bass I manually raised them to -3 dbs. The results were quite startling in that I got deep and clean bass that was totally non-directional. Even older movies sounded great but newer blu-ray really made the whole upgrade to a second SW more than worth it. The third dark knight movie had a lot of bass that was wonderful. I am lucky that my theater room is mostly below grade and my closest neighbors to my house hear nothing. Only my wife hears the result (our bedroom is above the family room) but she is quite tolerant. I guess after almost 42 years of marriage she is used to me and my loud movies.
