Fixed!

That being said I have really been enjoying my 499.00 PC12NSD in my 2.1 garage system. Very clean bass and I love the cylinder/down firing design. I measured 113-115db peaks from 8ft away in the 40-80hz region....which is more then enough output for the garage.

If you ran Audyssey and it came up with your sub at -12, then you need to adjust your sub gain and re-run Audyssey. -12 could actually be something like -20, as -12 is where the range ends. You want Audyssey to preferably come up with something in the range of say -7 to 0, or very close. After that you can bump it up (run it hot) as many do. Bumping up 5 or 6dB (even more for some) is fairly common practice with quite a few people.

Dynamic EQ is indeed an option you get at the end of using the Audyssey calibration. You can go in the settings and turn it on/off anytime you want when Audyssey is enabled, regardless of if you chose to not set it on right after Audyssey was finished . You should try it out and see if you like it or not.

Depends on who you ask. I would adjust the SVS amp.

If your AVR uses Audyssey then it's recommended that you increase the sub level thru the AVR after completing Audyssey.

Awesome video of your new sub!

Watching you wrestle with it made me worry you might get a hernia or pull something! 😉

Now you get to do the subwoofer crawl with it! Woohoo!

AVR amp as you never know how many dB exactly are you gaining by turning that know on the sub.

I've come to the conclusion that its basically impossible to ever be set in this hobby. There is always one more upgrade.

According to Ed, and this is as far back as the middle of last year, we Canadians are supposed to get an outlet as well. Matter of fact, when I go to the outlet page, all I see is this


Quote:
Our outlet specials offer huge savings on gently-used speakers and subwoofers. All outlet special products are guaranteed to look and perform like-new (unless otherwise specified below) and carry our full 5 year Unconditional Warranty and complete Bill of Rights coverage.

SVS Outlet specials are available for US customers. Look for our Canadian Outlet store coming soon!

I don't see a listing of speakers and subs, all I get is "coming soon"


The reality is the Canadian dollar isn't doing so well again. A pair of ultra bookshelves now are 1200 + tax. For me that's 1200 + 13%. That's Paradigm studio territory.


When I bought my PB-2k back in October I paid $940 tax included, shipped, etc. Now it's $960 + tax = 1083.
The PB13 ultra is almost 3grand! at 2823.00.

So we Canucks could use a little savings, and the outlet would do that.
