Now I am thinking of getting another sub for my living room.

Can the PB2000 be paired with my PB13U or should I take the plunge and get another PB13U?
If it was me and i already own a PB13U and i was thinking about getting another svs sub .And if i had to pick from a pb2000 or another pb13u.I WOULD HANDS DOWN GET ANOTHER PB13 ULTRA.Why because more power and my guess is a hell of a lot more equal.As far a the pb2000 goes i myself would not get one just to make it dual in mysetup i feel it would be under powering with the ultra for sure.

The FV15HP is no doubt a great sub. However, there are three competitors who have undoubtedly closed all or most of the performance gap at a lower price...namely the PSA V1500, the Hsu VTF15H Mk2, and the RA Echo 15. The RA Echo 18 will undoubtedly substantially outperform the FV15HP for $1299 shipped.

Then late last year I purchased a pc12nds on closeout thinking this would give me the little extra punch and lower extension i was looking for but after numerous tweaks and countless moving the sub around it still doesn't deliver the low frequency extension that the pb1000 produced. For reference the pb1000 would shake my couch on the u571 dept charge scene and the pc12nds lightly vibrates the couch.

I'm thinking I might need to get duel pb1000 for smoother response or a pc2000/pb2000 but Im a little hesitant on the 2000 not delivering a significant upgrade over the 1000.

My listening habits are 99% movies.

Thanks
I think the PB2000 will be a noticeable upgrade for you. The PB/PC12-NSD line had decent output at 20 Hz, rolled off quickly below that, and had pretty lackluster output everywhere else. The PB2000 has good extension down to at least 16 Hz and stronger output than the NSD line. It should handily outperform the PB1000.

I am considering purchasing a couple PB13-Ultras and was wondering about the feet. I don't want the subs on the ground because I don't have carpet in the room where my HT stuff is. Does the user have to drill holes in the gloss black finish to insert the optional rubber feet?

The s3000i will have more output across the board so it comes down to amp features and aesthetics that svs brings if those matter to you or not.

Well, the things I like about the svs are the looks and the fact that it is much lighter in weight. But I don't want to be losing quality if the PSA is an overal better quality sub.

SB13 = 92 pounds
S3000i = 110 pounds

Even though the SB is 18 pounds ligher I still wouldn't consider it light.

True its also a bit smaller too which is another factor(again, not a huge factor but still something)

But at the end of the day, the real question is, is the S3000i a better quality sub, and if so how much better?

At least with the PB12-Plus I can always add a seconds one if i need it (provided I can afford it)
I had the same issue and grabbed these two items to help with the additional depth of the PB12+...save yourself about 2". You'll love the PB12+ with the ability to select your port tune and fine tune even further with the PEQ.

Not sure but 1599.00 and 45 days should give you a clue which is better.
