You can do it on both it is doesnt matter. It is easier on AVR just don't go over zero or plus numbers then is better to increse on sub as well. I did it on AVR increse 3db on each sub.

Are the non-DSP controlled subs the same as the DSP controlled one where you want the sub to be turned all the way up to 0db? If so, you might consider going that way and trying to back it down in the AVR.

Have you calibrated your sub using spl meter or audyssey?

I already have a SB-1000 and I am happy with it, but looking for more. Should I buy another or return it and get a SB-2000?

May be a silly qn - if I'm using the LFE output from receiver going into line in on the sub, should I keep the crossover knob at its max? I thought the knob had no effect unless you were using the sub to manage the crossover.

Either disable or max out the xo on the sub. Let the AVR handle the bass management.

Depends on how much more are you looking for ? 2xsb1000 will be more powerful than 1xsb2000...if you want just a little more than go for another sb1000 but if you want more than a little more than get the 2xsb2000 or in that case the sb13 ultra will be better ...are you looking for more low end in movies?

It really depends on the size of your room - the SB2000 is more of an incremental upgrade. If you can afford dual SB1000, then it's worth your while to consider the PB2000, again, depending on your room dimensions/layout.

Room is 15x20x8. Yes, just a little more for movies. I really can't hear the sub in movies at all. I only have two spots for sub placement and they are on either side of my couch that is against a wall.

I can't do a ported sub due to size. My wife already doesn't like seeing the sb1000.

It was calibrated via audyssey, although I am going to do it bia spl meter as well
I have the level in audyssey as 0.0 and adjusted the gain knob on the back to the 2 o'clock position.
Thanks!

In that case, dual SB1000's would be better than a single SB2000. You can also consider getting dual Rythmik L12's - they're closer to the SB1000 in pricepoint.

Considering your WAF constraints, I think a Buttkicker would be a good option for you.

Audyssey is pretty accurate setting speaker level. You want your sub trim levels in the (-) negative range so instead of calibrating with the sub volume at 12 o'clock as specified by audyssey, move the sub volume/gain to 2 o'clock and re-calibrate using audyssey.

in that case go for another sb1000...you will gain about 5db and should be enough as you will be able to set the subs at least 5db hot...go for another sb1000 and enyoj duals
