Thanks for any help you can give!

I do love the way the SVS subs look. These may be on my list for my dedicated home theater.

They're great subs and a great company behind their products.

I decided to get an SB13-Ultra today after endless hours of reading and researching.


I previously had a Energy S10.3 subwoofer and now the wait for them to arrive begins...

I look forward to hearing your impressions... I went from the same Energy sub to an SB2000 (now dual SB2000's). I'm omitting sharing my own upgrade experience - not that it's a secret, but I'm interested in hearing as unbiased a comparative review as possible

So I thought I was waiting until built my dedicated basement home theater. Well.... I've just been convinced to go ahead and buy one PB-1000 now for my family room home theater and to buy another down the road for duals. I guess I'll have to buy PB-2000s or PB13-Ultras for my dedicated.

Nice. I probably won't get them until next week, but I'll post my impressions for sure.

Craig Peer, I knew I had seen that gold couch someplace before. It was on the Graceland tour back in 1982. Did you buy that from Elvis' estate?

Hahaha ! It's amazing what a point and shoot's camera flash does to colors. Elvis's sofa is safe - it hasn't left the building ( Graceland ) yet !


It's more of a brownish red that looks shiny at some angles. I just make everyone wear black robes - especially when watching " 12 Angry Men " !

How much of an upgrade will be a PC12-NSD be over a 25-31PCi?
I'm thinking the PB-1000 is not going to be an upgrade, right?

I'm such a huge fan of the cylinders! My room isn't huge and the boxes would seriously limit my placement options. The cylinders allow me to still have huge subs without sacrificing the floor space!

I had a 20 - 39pci cylinder sub ( that's the one on the right in the photos ). Really no complaints. I don't know if a PC12 - NSD would be an improvement, but adding it to your existing 25 - 31pci sub - that would be an improvement. In my case I added a PC12 Plus ! Added a whole new level of realism to the tank battle scene in " Fury ". Added a new level of " wow " to the black hole scene in " Interstellar " !!

Does anyone know if SVS is going to have a sale on labor day? I know nothing definite can be said/known so feel free to PM if you prefer that, looking at previous threads they've had sales on memorial day etc.

I've got 2 20-39cs subs that I've owned since 2002. Awesome subs but one of them has finally died on me. Can anyone recommend a replacement driver I can put in there. Or one that would be better then the original? Also would a car subwoofer work as replacements. I can get car subs for half off retail from a friend if it would work. Alpine, infinity, jbl and kicker would be my options.

It's difficult for anyone to say Brand X driver is the best. It has to be able to function properly in a cylinder. I know I am really bad at Trigonometry.

They have a 60-day price guarantee. If you buy now, and they go on sale, they will refund the difference.

There is no sale on new one but sometimes and maybe Labor Day they are lower prices in outlet section. If is any promotion it is on trade in they extended period to trade older subs for a new ones. Like last time they did.

Finally got my PB 2000

Finally got my PB 2000 and WOW!! Thing thing is a beast, to say I am impressed would be an understatement. I am using it in a 26' length by 16' wide front room, that opens to my kitchen and front door entrance area, but it has no problem filling the space with bass, at no where near reference level listening volumes. My MLP is about 9-10' from where I have the sub and shakes the couch and I can feel it in my chest with heavy bass tracks, music and movies. Very glad I made this purchase, the bottom end it gives movies is amazing, everything is fuller an more alive. This may be a novice question, but why does everything seems louder and clearer, with the speakers set to small crossed at 80hz, when using a sub, vice not having a sub? My system sounds much better for some reason. I am just watching movie after movie and music listening, just to hear this thing, lol. No expert, so no expert review, just one very happy SVS owner, love this sub.

Speakers set to small and 80Hz allows the speakers to deliver clean sound by not having to reproduce freqs under 80Hz. When a speaker reproduces the bottom end, it makes the higher freqs muddy by the action of the cone.

Thank you and thank you for the explanation. Yeah the cleaner sound is very noticeable, sounds great.
