Let us know how do you like your new dual set up. Oh yes it will be a nice upgrade and I'm sure you will be happy with it.

Buy another sub and get measuring equipment i.e. REW and a mic. It will make an audible difference, whereas going from a high quality receiver such as the one you have to an "audiophile" amp will make no audible difference, other than that which is imagined from having spent so much on an "audiophile" amp.

An amplifier does make a big difference, but then my speakers are 4ohm. Kef LS50 owner on av said a XPA-5 helped lots

I got my tracking number for the sub it is scheduled to arrive in a week...i have a question...when i want to gain match both subs does that mean i put both gains on sb13ultras at the same settings (lets say -23 on both) or one of the sub lower (left -23 and right -21) so that i will have the same AVR trim after audyssey (around -8)?

You'll want to calibrate each sub volume individually ie both to 73dB, then with both on adjust the total to 75dB

Since Audyssey seems to be doing weird things like setting my satellite speakers center crossover at 150Hz and fronts to 100Hz, is there another way to calibrate speakers, subs? I've heard a few people mention REW when referring to subs and amps.

You can use REW for an accurate display of what your system looks like. Right now, I am using just an SPL meter to calibrate my speakers.

Just received my SVS PB-2000 yesterday, hooked it up, set it up, watched Godzilla and WOW!! Yes, for my first subwoofer, I have chosen wisely and for the moment I am happy with the bass in my room.

I don't care how huge it is and that it takes up a lot of room or that it has a lighthouse of a blue LED in front of the unit, when I'm watching movies, I can't see it at all (I had to mask the LED with some tape) and all I can hear and mostly feel is all the goodness it puts out and my couch and whole body vibrating!

Receiver: Kenwood KRF-X9070D Front: Jamo S 718 Rear: Jamo Studio 180 SUB: SVS PB-2000 TV: SONY Bravia KDL55HX850 Blu Ray: SONY BDP S590; XBox ONE

I don't have LS50. But if you knew about those speakers, you'll know they're hard to drive and low impedence. 3.2ohm, and 85dB

But the speakers I DO have are quite efficient around 90dB but low impedence, 4 ohm, around 3.2. Usually people pair the Celestions with Bryston and other big amps.
