Haha, not quite glass busting, but....
One night, my wife brought home one of her movies. Since she'd sit through my action and adventure (she calls them boy movies), I'd sit through her horror movies, but she'd bring home mostly "B" movies, some really stupid ones
But one night, she brought home "InnKeepers" (I've told this one before long ago). When ever the Hotel ghost was near, you'd get an LFE rumbling through the speakers.
Then, in one scene, the window coverings (big wooden slat style blinds) were rattling like crazy. We lived in the flight pattern of the Air Force base and I figured it was a C130 or C141 buzzing the roof top, it was like on top of the house, 4 sets of blinds were shaking and rattling so bad. My wife interrupts the movie and asks, "what the heck is going on?". So, I paused the movie and 4 15" sub woofer drivers "popped" back into place. Those babies were at maximum extension. I just looked over at my wife and said, "that was just the subs baby"

No offence to the PSW, it does surprisingly give quite a punch on the mid-bass (chest thump), but I am looking more for the rumbles (without the foundation shake or chest thump), which I believe the dual PB 1000 would achieve. And yes, at that point, I will run my A9 as small
Very nicely done!!!! Here is something you already know, with more subs in the room, the more your bass response is improved.
One more funny that I've already told years ago in this thread; my wife can do without the sub. She told me that she didn't mind if I added to my set up, just be sure to "tell" her first so there's no shock upon arrival. "Honey, I'm going to get a second Epik Empire", she replies with an "Ooookayyyyy" while rolling her Cali eyes
The sub shows up and she hits the roof, "Why did you get that?????" I said, "I told you I was getting it", her, "I thought you were just kidding", me, wait till I get it set up and dialed in and you'll be in for a surprise.
So I bring her down for a demo, and after a few song sections and some movie scenes, she looks at me and sincerely says, "Well, I'm actually impressed". She has a great ear.
Then, some few months later, I call her down for another demo, we have one of our daughters movies in, and I ask her after the scene, "did you feel that?" her, "yes", me, "I took out the subs and that was just the four A9's set to full".........without any hesitation, she looks right at me and unimpressed asks, "Soooo why do you we need the subs again?".......ugggg, talk about getting deflated
I've been very careful about what I tell her about the set up after that
