Concerning the grilles on the RC's... I find them super nice. Without them the speakers are very "in your face", perfect for demo nights with the guys, etc. With the grilles on, they look like black...

BTW Mega is indeed controversial because of its founder (infamous Kim Dotcom) but I think it's much less shady that many, many sites out there. I have no idea why they use that scheme for saving...

As retro said, contact SVS & your dealer first (assuming you did double-check your AVR and sub settings like trim level, gain, etc.). I'm pretty sure they will instruct you to remove the amp to check...

I missed the original poster. Well as always I'm with you bear. It has to be noted that you can't expect low THD below port tune in a ported sub, and in fact from experience, you can't expect much of...

On one hand it looks pretty much the same as the PB-2000 sound-wise. A few people on this thread got one, and I've not seen negative comments regarding the new layout anywhere.

Production seems a...

As you can see on the first post, there is now a Vol. 3, but it's no longer a demo disc. Rather, it's a demo folder containing the .m2ts files themselves, which can be played by various software &...

Interesting, I'll look into that -- but still, I think it is a bit too general a statement. I mean technically, if I'm getting, say, 93 dB SPL without compressing 12 ft away from my aluminum dome...

Well I can't say I have exceptionally good ears so I can't really say if I get compression or not in the highs and mids. But the sound seems exceptionally clear to me. It's just that crashes (e.g....

I mostly agree with what has been said before.

That being said, two PB-2000s in a 1600-cu ft room is already a lot. One question that hasn't been asked is, do you know if you're reaching the...

Your mains have usable response at 24 Hz? Wow!



That's a pretty good guess. If the peak was in the roll-off of the Velo, Audyssey probably didn't bother indeed (assuming it correctly identified...

I've seen large peaks but this one is nearly 20 dB -- it's a chance you've got Audyssey to tame it.



Well you're right that subwoofer placement can't affect the frequencies and intensity of the...

Now that you mention it, I also had to re-do calibration because of this. In my case, the kids were not the problem -- while building my HT setup I just ran some ethernet cable behind the sub and it...

The PS3 cannot play the .m2ts files (or at least, not all of them, might depend on the codec/format), unless of course they're on a BD (go figure). You'd need to transcode as you discovered.

I thought that was an unfortunate side effect, not a cure. An empty wallet doesn't really "cure" the upgraditis; people with alcohol problems are not cured if they go dry. Amputation is not really a...
