Don't worry, we've got SVS dealers over here. Though, not with US prices and benefits, of course. What are your speaker plans once you move? Or is your current setup going together with you?

I'm all set 7.2 system. Speakers, subs, Tv going with me only AVR will have to have power converter and big one for AVR so it is probably easier to sell it and then buy in Europe same or similar model.

Multiple subs deal with room modes much better than a single sub can. Not only do you gain output and headroom, but you get much better bass "coverage" over a wider seating area.

Also, if you happen to be sitting in a null at your MLP and moving your single sub doesn't help, the only solution is more subs.

^ What he said!


I have a fairly large room. 3500+ cubic feet. One of my subwoofers would not be enough, thus 2, which makes coverage more manageable. I am not a fan of ported in my living space for various reasons (size was not one of them), so I went with sealed. I have an SW-115 in my closet, and I wasn't a fan. In certain bass heavy scenes, it exhibited port chuff, which I can't stand.

Just FYI, there are many quality, vented subwoofers out there that I would dare anyone to pick out from a sealed sub in a blind test.

If you're getting port chuffing, you need a higher quality vented sub.

Sooooo HOPEFULLY by summer I'll be up and running. Then the theater build starts
Bummer having to wait (I took advantage of the NFM sale also)...maybe get a boom box Kidding aside, it's fun working on the room too and it'll be that much more enjoyable when the setup is completed. BTW: How often do the XPA-5's go on sale and for how much???

Those were my exact feelings. Dual PB-2000's are excellent performers. I preferred them over the single PB-13U I auditioned recently. Although I'm fully aware of the performance gain with dual Ultras, I'm not yet convinced from a cost/benefit perspective that it is 2.5X. IMO, my PB-2000's really hold their own in my 4800 cf environment...YMMV.

Well, the holiday sale was 25% off. I'm going to PM a couple guys at the lounge and see if there are any other sales throughout the year.

Both my living room and theater will be relatively small so I think the cost benefit of dual 2000's will be much higher than dual ultras.

If you're getting port chuffing, you need a higher quality vented sub.
Vented and Chuffing, not heard these terms, guess I probably am not a real audiophile because of this.

A vented sub is one with a port. Chuffing is the sound that air rushing out said port makes.

While we are on the subject of subs, I was listening to an interview with Gary Yacoubian, President of SVS, and he mentioned that a good sub should do 5 things well: play at infrasonic levels (below human hearing), play at high spl's not limited by the amp, have accurate frequency response, stop and start on a dime (musical), and I can't recall the last, but I think it had to do with the amp. It was pretty insightful and explains why SVS subs are so good.
