I currently own a PB-1000 and love it. I've had it less than a year and I'm thinking about upgrading to the PB-2000 or maybe the PC-2000. Will the PC-2000 give me the same experience as the PB-2000 but with a smaller footprint?

Thanks,

Mike

Cylinders take up way less room than ported box models. Although tbh if I had PB1000 I'd go for the Plus model, may as well step up two models.

Krell Evolution 900e x 7

Bose Jewel speakers.

 

Jealous of my speakers?

I am in total agreement with the previous poster...better to step up 2 classes so you don't want to upgrade again in the near future....if it's too much bass for you just turn down the volume of the sub until it's exactly the way you love it...your limited how much turning it up can help your setup by the actual size and power of the sub but you have 100 choices from 1 to 100 for turning it down..

Plus SBU has features the SB2000 lacks a far more advanced plate amp, more useful in a hifi, XLR, PEQ, room compensation, better quality finish (SB2000 looks a bit cheap compared to BK XLS400)
That's one thing I loved about the Ultra, the PEQ. I was able to fix a couple of problems using that alone.

As for power output. Of course the SB13 has more than the 2000. I'm just saying it's not something I immediately noticed with the 2000. In my room at my LP there's not much difference. I even checked some readings with test tones I saved from the Ultra and it's pretty similar to the 2000. But that's probably because I don't listen at high levels like some of you do.

Not really denying the Ultra is the better sub. But as always, we all have different rooms and a sub will react differently in each.

Hi Wright,

Just a few thoughts if SVS can't help you with a replacement amp... Those two capacitors may be connected in parallel. If that's the case and you can get to the bottom of the board you could try just removing the failed one and see if the fuse still blows. If it doesn't your PC13 might still work at lower output levels. It wouldn't have the reserve capacity to hit high level peaks but might be loud enough to use while you save up for a new unit. Its free to try and If it were my unit that's what I'd try.

[Edit added] If the removal of the capacitor works then I'd try to find a replacement part and install it or have it installed.

Another option, if you have any kind of repair shops available, you could take in the amp and get a quote to replace the cap. If its cheap enough you do that and see if it works. Unfortunately labor will likely be the main cost driver and may not be worth it because if that didn't work you just ate the cost.

Another option if I had the money and it fit is buying a new BASH amp. Parts Express has a 300 watt RMS and a 500 Watt RMS unit: http://www.parts-express.com/bash-500s-digital-subwoofer-plate-amplifier-500w-rms--300-752#lblProductDetails

The 500 Watt BASH from PE:

• Dimensions: 12" W x 8" H x 3-1/2" D
• Cabinet cutout: 11" x 7"

The 300 Watt unit:

• Dimensions: 11" W x 7" H x 4" D
• Cabinet cutout: 10" x 6-1/4"

There may be other amps available but I'll leave that up to you

Hey Gang,

Looking for opinions.

I currently run a PB-2000/1000 combination in my main setup which is excellent. I have a second setup in my upstairs loft where I would like to move the PB-1000 to replace a smaller/inferior sub. As a replacement for the PB-1000, I am considering picking up the PB12 - Plus to pair with my PB-2000 or create a matched pairing with another PB-2000.

PB12-Plus or PB-2000?

BTW - the Utra was a consideration, but just to much to swallow in cost at this time.

Fire away...

Thanks.

PB-2000 ... the tonality or timbre and power profile will be the same as your current sub.

Official SVS Owners/Support Thread.

Finally got her hooked up. Very easy, set at recommended settings, low pass filter to LFE, phase to 0, gain to 11 o'clock, and crossover on AVR at 120Hz. Extremely clean bass, total opposite of my boomy accoustech h-100. Watching I Robot now and curious why I'm not hearing bass and then it kicks in. I became so use to the boominess of the previous sub, it will take a while to get use to the clean mid ranges and low extension of the PC-2000. Will run Audyssey tomorrow.
