Didn't know there actually was a way to use the sub in Pure Direct mode on Denons.

You still haven't told us what bookshelves you're using; they may require a higher crossover.

Also with Pure Direct you won't get the benefits of Audyssey room correction so the sub will likely be more affected by room modes and the like.

I am using the Focal Chorus 807V bookshelf speakers. Below are the specs of the 807V:

Type: 2-way bass reflex bookshelf loudspeaker
Drivers:
7" Polyglass mid-bass
1" TNV inverted dome tweeter
Frequency response (±3dB): 50Hz-28kHz
Sensitivity (2.83V/1m): 92dB
Nominal impedance: 8 ohms
Power handling: 160/110W
Dimensions (HWD): 17-5/8" x 9-1/3" x 13-1/8"


What would be the best Crossover for these speakers? Right now, I have the Crossover at 80Hz from the Denon receiver.

Thanks for any advice!

Finally Finished the basement remodel, after a long 10 months, carpet goes in tomorrow.. I was hoping for a Pb 12 plus in the outlet center but I cannot wait any longer! Placed the order for dual Pb 2000. Fingers crossed that I feel what I expect to feel in just shy of 4000 cubic feet.


Cheers!

I've had my PB1000 for about 4 weeks now, absolutely LOVVEEEE it. Bass punches you in the gut and is super clean. The only problem now is that I want a second one real bad, but someone may not be too pleased!!!!

I agree... In regards to music the PB 2000 plays it when its there. You should give the sub more time so that you can become more acclimated to it and consider the material being played as the culprit not the sub. I came from a boomy sub that I thought was pretty damn good --- LMAO x2. Enter SVS... (yes I am a fanboy! ) If the source material is there the PB its playing it accurate - your settings/room ascetics/positioning could also be a factor. For music, you want the sub to be part of the show, not the whole show. Dependent on material you may get a chest punch vs. a more subtle punch.

Yes coming from a Boomy x2 SUB you will think there is something wrong with the SVS...I would give it a week or 2 to get accustomed to it.

The PB2000 has more authority in movies vs the sealed version. I can feel the movies in my couch, I cannot say the same for the SB2000 I had.

I watched Need for Speed with my 2 boomy subs when I had them hooked up and I thought it sounded great, well I re-watched it last night with the SB2000.... it was like watching a brand new movie, but I was a mind reader and knew what was going to happen before the scene arrived on screen

Who needs 4K?... just go see your optometrist.

Oh... give it some time. A second SVS will make its way into your thinking and living room! I NEVER thought I would run a dual sub setup. My wife has learned to accept the new world order of music and movie sound domination. My neighbors just ask "what the hell do you have in there?"

Go for it!

Yea, the PB 2000 is a sweet sub. I still scare the crap outta myself watching movies when something unexpected happens that produces a explosion or impact. First time I experienced how hard these subs hit was when I was watching Sinister.... A projector drops from an attic to the floor. Dogs started barking, my son jumped and everyone look at each other and said he same thing - Holy Chit!!! -- thats insane.

What would be the best Crossover for these speakers? Right now, I have the Crossover at 80Hz from the Denon receiver.
The 80 Hz crossover is perfect for those specs.

The problem is, I don't remember what was the issue with your sub(s)

So today I moved my PB2000 from my living room into my office/man cave. After setting hooking everything up and running Audyssey I listened to some familiar tracks and was very disappointed. I had a Jamo SUB 650 in there before and it sounded ok. Not sure what the problem is. The PB2000 sounded pretty good in the living room. It was up against a small corner (about 6-8" away from each wall). In the office I put it in the same place my Jamo SUB 650 was, in between my TV stand and Klipsch RF-82 II. I then moved it into the corner, but I still wasn't blown away compared the Jamo sub. You guys have any suggestions?

Can you do a SUB crawl? In my room if I place the sub on the other side of my AV stand which is 5 feet wide. The sub completely disappears as if there is no SUB in the room from my main listening position.

I originally had it in that blank space between the right speaker and the stand, but the bass was barely noticeable. It's now in the corner about 5" away from each way. I'm still not very happen with the way it sounds.

I was hoping to later add another PB2000 in between the left speaker and the stand, but I don't know now.

each room is different, just place it there now and see if you still have a similar bass response from the other side.

Sub crawl works....

I'll mess with it some more tomorrow. I'm currently listening to some music from my desk which is about 6' behind the listening position and the sub sounds pretty good. That's weird because the Audyssey measurements show that sub distance is 3-4' further than the actual mic distance at the MLP.

About 2,000 sq. ft. A little over 20'x14'. It is sealed. It used to be in the living room which is 20'x20' and has a straight opening to the kitchen.

I just moved it to the left of my MLP and it sounds better. I can actually feel the bass. I'll re-run Audyssey tomorrow. If that's the best location tomorrow, then I'll probably just upgrade to a PB12 Plus instead of running duals. I was just hoping to run duals since they would fill up the space up front and look better.

Never mind sub crawl. It may be helpful but it may also not be. In order to properly calibrate a sub you need a dB-meter, REW and a USB-mic. Everything else will be just meh in comparison.
