Question is.....would I be better off getting two PB2000's -OR- one SB13 Ultra (can't afford two of those right now). I mainly watch movies and love bass 'thump'. The room is just a medium sized family room open to the foyer and a couple of hallways. It also has a cathedral ceiling if that matters. Suggestions?????
Well how big is your room feet/3? Sounds like you have a big room with high ceiling. For movies it is more to ported sub. Some guys have a sealed SB13Ultra in small to medium size rooms and they love it. Maybe single Plus or Ultra ported one will be a better choice for your room.

Once I get home from work tonight, I'll measure the room and post the dimensions. I really want to order TONIGHT whatever SVS sub turns out to be the best for my application. My Aperion speakers come in on Friday, so I'd love to get the sub(s) hopefully by the weekend. I'm leaning towards the two PB-2000's at the moment. I wish I could afford two PB13 Ultras, but the Aperions wiped me out!!! One last thing....will the ported subs be that much better than the sealed for movies?

Ported subs are mostly better for movies. Many people like sealed sub as well in almost all cases those people have small or medium size room. Others use ported. You have a really nice towers and I'm waiting for your room measurement. I will be more going to Plus or Ultra sub but it is me, nice about those is you can have them set up as (16hz, 20hz or sealed mode = ported ones ). I will get one Plus now and maybe later on second one. Did you talk to SVS guys on SVS web sites? Try to chat with them, they are very helpful and they will tell you what will fit the best. On web site it is simple tool merlin and for your towers it is all Ultra sub as basic recommendation. If you are not sure what to get get one of each and compare them for 45 days and then keep one and send other back. Only your ears will tell you what you like the best. I have dual Pluses Cylinder version and I love them. I compare them to single Ultra PC13 sub and I decide to keep dual Pluses and also menu folks here agree it is great idea and it is. Dual Pluses will outperform single Ultra so as dual PB-2000 will outperform single Plus.

Exactly -- If you sealed a PC12-NSD you'd basically have an SB12-NSD, which has basically the same footprint without the height. The same goes for the PC13-Ultra and the SB13-Ultra. The only thing that is missing is an SB12-Plus in the current lineup (it did exist in the past).

Yes -- the drawback is the size of the subs but the ports will give you a sizeable output advantage which will provide you with much more tactile feelings. Not that the sealed Ultra isn't good -- it's awesome -- but you're trading a bit of output to have that small form factor.

OK.....so I guess I'll go with the ported sub instead of the sealed since everything I'm reading from you guys, plus what's on the SVS site says go ported. So that leaves me with either going with two PB2000's or one PB13 Ultra (most likely would get that from SVS's clearance area). More punch with two PB2000's?
