Welcome to the club! If you have the Bluray for Flight of the Phoenix, queue that up and watch the scene where the plane is flying into the dust storm. When the plane goes upside down, try and figure out which went lower...the bass or your jaw.

Or the first 15 seconds of Edge of Tomorrow. Or the Server Room scene from Pulse.

In fact, there are two user made Ultimate Bass Demo Blurays that were posted here on AVS somewhere (the links are escaping me). The downloads are pretty large and you'll need a Bluray burner, but they are the best way to get a good sampling of bass demo tracks.

There's two ways: Black electrical tape or remove the amp and unplug the LED wires (suggested by Ed Mullen) to permanently disable it. I went with the first option as I figured there may be a point in the future where I need to know if the sub is on or not. Those LEDs are so bright they still (very dimly) show through the tape in a dark room. I'm actually ok with that since I can't see the tape normally anyway (unless I go looking for it).

Hot diggity that was quick! My PC-2000 showed up already! I just ordered it Saturday, shipped out Monday, and got here Wednesday. Nice!

I'll be running through demo material when I get home from work today. I still have the PSA XV15se as well, so it'll be interesting to compare the two.

Thanks - I did find those links to the demo disks, I downloaded two of the four that looked good and tried to make them work from my movie server which not much luck, may be I need a burner to make a real disk. I do have Pulse on DVD just came from Netflix as somewhere else I heard about the Server Room scene and I have EoT so can try that movie for sure - can't wait


I'm also going to try the tape option - may be they will put a switch in future, not sure I want to start taking it apart

It took me five layers of masking tape with black sharpie to get the light to where it wasn't distracting: I can still see it even then when the lights are out. So, if one layer of tape doesn't work, keep adding more!

The guys at SVS have said they will walk me through the complete step of my SVS subs and the new speakers, receiver and amp to make sure I have it all configured correctly - amazing customer service. I couldn't use their speakers in my upgrade as I'm stuck with in-walls but they have a customer for life


Just one question, any way to turn off the power LED - that blue light while watching the screen is horrible, I thought I read it could be turned off but didn't see a switch. That or I guess I get some black tape to stick over it?


I thought I was in the crapper when they arrived today as the boxes are BIG but once unpacked they fit in nicely - oh and did I mention how amazing they sound


Let us know what you think. Even though I have large towers, I found that setting them to small with a 60hz crossover really let the PB-2000s shine.

Panasonic: P65VT30 THX Plasma
Denon: AVR-4311 (Powering surround channels only)
Adcom: GFA555 x 2 L/R and Center
Definitive: BP30 x 6 for L/R, SL/SR, SRBL/SRBR
Definitive: CLR2000 and 2 BP1X Bi-Polars for PLIIz Height channels
SVS: PB-2000 x 2

Thanks for Your reply.

I don't think it's normal, also because it never did this delay.
But something about it could be the culprit:
I noticed that these days the PB13 with the "defective amp"
turns ON with a delay of 3-4s than the other PB13...
obviously when it's able to turn ON .

Any other ideas?
What could I check in my Bash amp?

Thanks in advance
