Your room looks to be on the smallish side, but I agree with you on SubSeries 200. It simply outdoes its size. I have auditioned this sub in a 3000 cu ft room with near-field placement about 3 ft...

As to the slight white noise when no signal is present, PSB said it is inherent to the amp design. I wouldn't have agreed to it, but I had already checked Rythmik and PSB S300 in my house and both...

Looking at the room layout, your bass response tends to gravitate along the longest walls. And that is typical of bass frequencies. Measure the FR lengthwise; you should have much better response. If...

Your problem is room acoustics. Some rooms don't warrant use of more than just one sub; mine is one of those.

Get REW and a USB mic to measure in-room response.

So, what does it tell? Is the amp on PSB faulty or is it inherent to its design and I shouldn't worry about it. There is no negative impact on the performance, though.

As to the humming sound from subwoofer (PSB S500), it is not exactly a hum but a low frequency white noise. Since it is a $2500 sub and a lot of money is at stake, I will unpack my Rythmik FV15HP and...

That's called "modesty". :)

As to the humming/buzzing sound from AVR, I think I have figured out the problem and it is not related to transformer being faulty. Will update in a while.

So, does it mean I have grounding issues that are causing AVR hum and CA transformer is still healthy?
