I was not happy with their service/reply. And speaking of Audessy on AVR, the best thing I did was not use it! I now have a NAD M17 that blows away every receiver I had with the holy "XT" & "XT32" on it. Audessy Pro was the only beneficial service I noticed & use.
I may try your instructions above with the PB13 ultra and try again
Hmm...so a couple HT installer guys couldn't make it sound any good and youve tried nearly everything else but you think some basic setup instructions may be the key?

Sounds like it's not being setup properly. That thing should be knocking houses off their foundations a mile away. Audyssey isn't an automagic software for calibrating. You actually have to have some audio setup knowledge for it to work properly. Then again, your room might be a bass blackhole.

Room size? It doesn't appear all that large from your pics ... how about an outlet PC13ultra (usually around $1499), a PB12plus (today for either $1199 or $1299), or a (sometimes available) $1049 outlet PC12+ ?

Save between $500 and $800 and then go duals in the future with another PC13U or PB12+ ... definite next-level gear compared to the PB2000s.

Additionally ... the PC12Plus weighs 75 lbs and the cylinder has a nice ledge in back where the amp is for picking the sub up and moving it around ... FWIW, compared to the Beast :-)

Please see my previous post on previous page. I am attaching drawing of my living room. Subwoofer shall be placed near TV unit preferably near main entrance. I am preferring PB1000 for lower extension upto 19 hz to SB1000 having lowest 24hz. Both are priced same. Experienced member's suggestion please.

If you've got a small room you could probably get good results from having dual PB2000's. In terms of actual power, not sure how two of the PB2000's would compare to a single Ultra, however you would then also get the benefits of multiple subs. Multiple subs is going to get you a smoother frequency response and should help to tame nulls. I will also say, since I'm a big fan of them, cylinders aren't as pretty, but they're going to give you nearly the same performance for a little bit less money.

Been considering either the SB13 ultra or something from JL audio, either an E-112 or a F112, really difficult decision.

After hearing 5 other SVS subs over the course of a half year or so and then finally deciding on the SB13U, I'd say that if music is your primary reason for having a sub, then yes, the SB13ultra is a great choice ... plenty of detail in the sound, backed up by more than enough power.
If, on the other hand, movies, gaming, and other non musical forms of entertainment are what you have the sub for, then you'd be better served with the the ported PB13 or PC13ultra (which I had for a couple of months last year).

Which country are you from? In the UK JL Audio are very expensive, huge mark up over here compared to other brands (even after tax, import duty etc) It's disproportionate.

Well, consider that PB will drop of quickly below 19 while SB might have some more extenssion, but given size of your room PB-1000 will probably do better

Change is the only constant.

My room is pretty big... Floor space around 800sqm and very high ceilings.. maybe 8 meters.. My PB13 is absolutely killing the room and neighbors HATE me... Try different settings and let us know how it works out

So i been thinking a ton.And i told myself since i already know what the power of the PB13 Ultra can do and how 1 Ultra is so good.If i return my ultra Then i am for sure going to wind up getting Dual PB13 ultra's .When idk.But the right thing for me right now is to get this credit card out of my way.Because i don't know about anyone else on this fourm .But i hate being in debt.With something so non helpful for my life right now.At the end of the day what every i do.Return the PB13 ultra or not.I will find a way to get everything back in order.And i will get Dual Ultra's.That's for sure.

Finally decided to go ahead and bump up the world of dual subs just to find out that the PC13-Ultra is back ordered by a week. Of course, as things work out, that puts the delivery right into the middle of the week that I'm planning on moving. As a result my Ultra is going to sit in the cart for an extra two weeks. I figure I should have my theater back up and running in about 2 months (so not like I'm missing much) with an Ultra (to go along with my PC12-plus) and a larger screen. Looking forward to seeing how dual subs compare to a single sub.
