I didn't have the F12. I had the V1220 and V1020 and don't remember a smell. If it doesn't go away by the time for you to make a decision, I'd send it back.

Congratulations! I'm happy you are enjoying your new toy. Give it several hours of break-in time before making a final judgment. That's a lot of speaker for a desktop and vibration, while normal,...

The SB-2000 will be a great subwoofer for you. And yes, SVS provides the best perks in the industry (but that's calculated into its pricing structure).

Sorry, I don't own dual SB-1000s or SB-2000s (although I did buy an SB-1000 for my son's office). But I'll add my thoughts.
