Or time to upgrade the signature in anticipation. In either case, it appears that he has already moved well beyond the "decision juncture" he referred to earlier. Can't wait to hear his reaction to two Ultras. I'll bet he can't either.

That's a great pair of subs ! Have friends coming over tonight to watch " Fury " - my twin PC12+ subs will be having some fun with that sound track ! The Tiger tank scene is especially good.

I agree! He'll love the subs. "Fury" has a pretty intense soundtrack. It may be about time for me to watch it again.

Oh Gene4th will love them I'm sure. They are amazing. I had a chance to have it home one Ultra and really amazing subs. If SVS will do trade in for okder then years subs like they did last year I will probably grab pair Ultras as well. I'm still very pleased with dual Pluses.

No question! The Ultras have always shared space at the top of my sub wish list! Also agree that Fury is a great bass demo fest!

my original 20-39 PC from 2002 has died, it appears to be the amp. These older amps just say "powered subwoofer" on them and have volume, crossover, and phase knobs with a bass boost switch. About 2/3 of the plate is heat sink.

The plate is about 10 3/4 wide by 8 3/4 high. Anyone have advice on finding an inexpensive drop in replacement? I figured I'd look before I shop for a new one.

Hi,

Similar questions come up from time-to-time on the thread, and the best advice is to contact SVS. They may be able to send you a compatible amp that will fit right in. Based on my recollection, though, after looking into the options, most people choose to go with a new sub. For the most part, I believe that the newer subs are better across the board.

Regards,
Mike

I may get a BIc PL-200 as a fill in, and move it to the living room once I sort this out.

A question about SVS PC13 OUTPUT and high pass filter. Tell me if I understood this correctly. Basically, typical use for this output would be to connect it to amp inputs (therefore sending signal to speakers) and setting high pass filter on sub would cut off low frequencies that aren't designated for mains.
So, I suppose then I can also connect another sub to SVS output and set some HPF (lets say 30 Hz) only to make it play content above that?

Looking for advice on adding a 2nd sub. I have a SB 2000, which I love but have been thinking about going dual. I have a dedicated HT that's about 11x13, with my screen on the 11ft wall. My SB 2000 is on that wall between my FL and Center speaker. Seating distance is about 11ft back. So not a big room. I have a Denon AVR-x2300w 7.2 and just added a couple upfiring speakers for Atmos so running 5.1.2. Is it worth it to go dual or overkill with my room size?

I think you're mistaken on the reason for a second sub. A second sub's main purpose is for smoother in-room response, not just for "more powaah".

So you need to answer these questions first: how is the bass at your sitting position? Is it good? Is it smooth enough? Have you tried to measure with REW at least?

While a second sub will generally benefit and smoothen the bass in your room, it isn't always guaranteed. 2 badly placed subs is just as bad (if not worse) than one badly placed sub.

Hi,

Two subs can add some extra output, and some additional sensation of envelopment, so adding a second sub can be desirable from that standpoint. As stated above, though, the biggest advantage in having multiple subs is in improving the frequency response in a room, by removing the effects of constructive (peaks) and destructive (dips) interference, and by reducing the effects of cancellation. But doing those things can not only make the bass sound smoother and more uniform across the frequency band, it can actually increase the perceived bass, particularly as cancellation (long waves colliding and cancelling each other) is reduced.

It isn't really a question of overkill or room size. Most rooms can benefit from having multiple subs. The key is in being willing to experiment to find good locations for the two subs. Measurement tools, such as REW, can be very helpful in properly positioning subs. But you can also do it the more old fashioned way by trial-and-error. If possible, positioning subs on two different walls in the room is likely to yield the best results, although that varies depending on the room, because doing that engages room modes in different ways.

I think you should go for it, and I hope this explanation helps a little.

Regards,
Mike

I wouldn't stress about overkill, extra headroom is always a good thing to have. The real benefit of having dual subs is going to be having the ability to flatten out the frequency response. As Mike says above me, placement is going to be critical for this, and often times the best placement options are not the best looking options. I would suggest learning how Room EQ Wizard works as it would take a lot of the guess work out of trying to get the best placement. Also, if you're really wanting the most out of dual subs, a MiniDSP would be a nice addition. The MiniDSP would help you in getting everything properly time aligned. Having at least dual subs, in my opinion, is pretty much a requirement when it comes to a good home theater.

Thanks everyone for the detailed responses. Sounds like I need to take some time to research more on REW, MiniDSP, etc.

Since you're in a symmetrical dedicated room, I wouldn't hesitate at all getting the second SB-2000 and start with Audyssey. I have two of them in between the front mains and the center and they sound great. I know it's not the most "ideal" position, but I do care about the aesthetics of my living room. Also threw my previous PB-1000 in the back left corner to even things out and together they sound amazing. I'm also in a 20x18 ft room.

You are very welcome! I think that it would be a great idea to explore REW, and a miniDSP would particularly help since you have Audyssey XT and not XT-32 with SubEQ. But I don't think I would make acquiring a second sub contingent on having those things. You should be able to achieve considerable improvement, in any case. Those technologies will just help you to optimize your system. But they can be a considerable time investment, too, so you sort of need to be willing to make that investment for its own sake.

So I'm looking at the nanoAVR HD as it looks like that might make the most sense for what I need, but certainly open to feedback from others much more knowledgeable than I am in this area. Since I've implemented Atmos and these DSP units seem to only work with lpcm, will this not work with my setup? Seems like these DSP's can improve my entire (current) 5.1 setup not just the SB 2000, so what issues would I have with Atmos? I realize this is starting to get off-topic so I can certainly post this in another thread but thought I would check since many of you have had some great feedback.

While dual subs is a way to go for good bass response, if we we are short of funds, is it advisable to leave the speakers as large set by audyssey as it is when we are running only a single sub now? Though I am using a slim line receiver, considering my hearing volume is not too high, the extra power I am saving due to listening in lower volumes can be used for speaker to run in large.

Please see the speakers I use from my signature and hope it would blend with svs pb1000 if run in large. (Audyssey sets my fronts and center as large and I always set them small)

It is really only recommended to run the fronts as LARGE (using LFE+Main, aka "Double Bass") with a subwoofer if you have the ability to measure your response. Otherwise, there is no way for you to know if you are being constructive or destructive to your bass response.

That being said, it never hurts to experiment. In theory, the more bass sources you have in your room, the smoother the bass will be...however, this is highly dependent on the location of the bass sources and front main speakers are usually placed for best imaging, not best bass response.

Just sold my second PB-2000 today and since the Ultra is on my short list, I'll likely order duals to audition soon. I've had a "single" Ultra in my 4800 cu ft enclosed and sealed space in the past and actually preferred the performance of the "dual" PB-2000's...presumably and probably due to the smoother FR, measured 5-6db gain, and my particular room acoustics. However, I'm fully aware that "dual" PB-13 Ultras are a completely different animal/beast/scenario. If you don't mind, I have several questions for you: (1) What is the volume and nature of your space? (2) Can you "subjectively" describe your impressions going from a single to dual Ultras? (3) do you have acoustic treatments installed? and lastly (4) did you do a sub crawl, utilize REW, or something else to setup/position your subs? Thanks in advance!

Just picked up a PB2000 It is WAY big so please prepare for your space. I did not prepare and it took up way to much of my floor space. If this happens do not plug in and try it out, you will not send it back. This thing sounds amazing it is now my new sub for my PC. Overwatch sounds so good

Pc

This is what I use for gaming on a PC, to be honest a pair of HD 650's will be your best bet when on a PC now I said PC gaming Not xbox, NES, PS9 or Neo Geo. When I'm in serious mode I will always have a pair of headphones on. Well we are all here for one thing, and that's for things to sound LOUD. The monitor is a Asus 27in 2560x1440 run buy a gxt 980. Sound is a soundblaster zxr optical out to a Denon AVR. Speakers are Definative Tech pro media 60 with a SVS PB2000 sub. Looking to upgrade to a SVS ultras bookshelf speaker, Verus 2 or a ascend sierra 1 speaker. The SVS sub has been a blast to use while playing overwatch and BF 4.
