I have 4 ultras and 2 pluses running through an aseq1 in my 12x12 room in my ht setup. I have never heard any of them them chuff either.

LOL all that in a 12x12 room? Do you prefer sitting on the Ultra or the Plus?

I guess 4 ultras are bench for sitting and 2 Pluses can be end tables or coffee table

The two subs are essentially sonic clones only differing in form factor. The PC form factor offers PB performance in a much smaller footprint which can fit into tight spaces the PB can't - that's what makes the PC so popular with our customers who have floor space challenges.
I used to have two PC12-NSDs, one on each side of the TV, and calibrating them was a breeze. They played flat Down to 15hz. Now I have two PB12-NSD DSPs and I struggle. I ended up stacking them on one side of the TV and 18hz is the lowest I can get. I'll be selling those to get PC-2000. Hopefully They will perform at least as good as the PC12-NSDs.

Whereas the amps and drivers are the same in the cylinder and box subs, one thing we got to realize is that the drivers and ports are not located in the same position in the room. Many remarked that shifting a sub a few inches can change the frequency response a lot. For example, some people noticed that turning the enclosure 180 deg so that a driver fires into a corner id much more efficient at corner loading the sub than just backing the sub into the corner. So I'd say any difference between the PC12-NSD and PB12-NSD was likely due to the position of the drivers and ports. Which might be of importance to you since the PC-2000 is back-ported instead of top-ported like the PC12-NSD.

I'm guessing that the shortness of my room might be the reason why the PBs Works less than the PCs. I tried one in front and one in back 90 degrees compared to the front sub and that Works fairly well. The stack Works but not as good as the PCs. A guy is picking up the PBs on sunday and I'll be ordering a PC-2000 as soon as it's available and a 2nd come spring. In the meanwhile I'll be using a really old Dali SWA15.

Received my Ultra bookshelves today. They were Outlet specials, so I don't know how much breaking in they'll need, but very impressed so far. Much better sound than the DefTech Studio 55s I recently auditioned.

I purchased the PB-2000, this morning. I will be getting it Tuesday or Wednesday. I can not wait to play with this sub. I thank the two gentlemen who helped me out, thank you very much. I love this site, it feeds my addiction to spend money on my home theater.

congrats to your new speakers!!! I'm always wondering how good SVS speakers are, no question about subs. So do you have all SVS speakers or you just add those to your system?

I just added these two Ultras. I recently sold my Infinity Primus 5.0 setup and am looking for upgrades.

Deciding on mains before adding the new center and surrounds.

Hi folks,

Joined the SVS Club!

I have recently purchased SVS Ultra Tower x 2, Ultra Surrounds x 2, Ultra Center x 1 and PB-2000 Sub x 1.

Question - Can someone please provide me with make and model of a stand suitable for the Center speaker?

SVS sells this one: http://www.svsound.com/speakers/spea...a-center-stand

Congrats on your excellent purchase!

Thanks. I live in NZ and the official SVS distributor does not sells the stand for Center speaker here and no other HiFi or electronics retail store sells the above model or any center speaker stand tbh that is not below $500.

Looks like I will have to buy from US and air freighted via a mail forwarder.

Question - Is the mounting on center speaker stands an industry standard? Can I buy just about any center speaker stand from any manufacturer and expect the ultra center to mount without any issues?

Thanks

I have a 12x12x8 room, which should I get the PB2000 or the PB1000? I only want 1 SUB.

I currently have 2x Polk Audio PSW110's.

Does the PC-2000 still fire downward? Does it just suck in the air and funnel it upward and then back down?

Since I missed the PC12 on sale, I might wait til some day they add an option to have the same fabric of the PC12.
