You have a 12 foot screen in your bedroom :eek:? Since you didn't mention your room size, I will assume that it is small enough so you are thrilled with the SVS PB-2000 and you are only looking to...

Subwoofer crawl: Place the subwoofer on top of your main listening position (your couch or chair). Then run frequency tones or music with deep sustained notes (many run both). While playing these...

Not familiar with BeNeLux.

It looks like LSound is all SVS. The only other sub I saw was the Kreisel DXD-12012 (a fine subwoofer, but ridiculously priced). REL is also ridiculously priced. Not...

I think the HTD Level THREEs in Macassar Ebony would be a fine selection. Certainly worth getting and auditioning. While there are plenty of very good speakers out in the wild that are reasonably...

No problem, and I agree with your statement 100 percent of crossing these @ 80 Hz. Since the R5Bi's are ported, they will have a steep rolloff, and perhaps that is why I liked the bass as much as I...

Congratulations! I hope this provides you with what you are looking for. As fatbottom indicated, the SB-1000 (a fine sub) is for rooms under 1,500 cu. ft., and the smaller the room, the better the...

Don't worry about meters. We can easily transfer them to feet. From your description, your room is on the borderline of large and extreme (4,856 cu. ft. or 137.5 cu. meters). This means a large,...

I think there was a misunderstanding in my post. I don't cross over at 60 Hz. I cross over at 80 Hz. But I was talking about the speakers in a 2.0 configuration and my subjective impressions of...

Before deciding that all is lost and this sub just doesn't do it for you, walk around the room and find where you hear the best bass and listen to it there. Yeah, it sounds weird to listen to a sub...

Some subs will have high pass and low pass filters. Some will even allow different slopes on these filters. This is used for the crossovers of the sub with your speakers and not for attenuating...

As Rowan mentioned, for subwoofers it is the total cubic footage of your room (and any rooms open to that room) that allows us to size the subwoofer and recommend sealed or ported. A subwoofer,...

All great choices. Perhaps advice from an owner of the SB13-Ultra and PSA XS30 (not the improved XS30se) might be helpful … or not :). Since your use is 90 percent music, I wouldn't worry about...

I couldn't find a review on the JBL and not that much on the Velodyne. Neither company appears too forthright with their frequency specifications. Neither of these ported subs give a +/-3 dB rating...

1. Yes, subwoofers that have the ability to produce extreme low frequencies (well below 25 Hz) will indeed be bothersome to your neighbors. You have a couple of choices. Turn it down and wait...

It could be you prefer the sound and feel of the higher bass regions, say 35 or 40 to 60 Hz. One gentleman here returned two PB-2000s and bought two PA-150s for that very reason. He much preferred...
