Just scanning this thread for the first time in awhile. It's kinda neat to read other people discovering real subwoofers. Nemo glass scene was one of our testing discs back when I got my sub, too. Everything you 2 guys said I have said, almost verbatim. (a little creepy, actually
Honestly, you other guys worrying about precisely which SV sub to get are all going to be fine. The difference between no sub or cheap subs and ANY quality sub is the most dramatic leap. That last little bit of sub-sonic bass and whatnot...well, that's not really much of an issue. I know people here make it sound drastic, life or death differences between a Plus and Ultra...not really. My friend with a PC Ultra tuned low got sick when listening to EoT. That's neat that the equipment can do it, but is it really the result you want when you pop in a movie? I'll have to get that movie and see what my PB2-Plus can do. I found I preferred it tuned to 20Hz, 18Hz in particular rattles parts of my house that DON'T sound good. Tuning and calibration to as flat a response as possible are most important. SVS is insane, I upgraded my drivers in my sub years back, the volume went up 6db with no other changes! But I basically had to tune that back out to match up with the other 7 speakers. You'll all be happy.
And to Kini62, are you sure your sub is placed well? If it is in a null, that can greatly increase the power needed unnecessarily.
