Lol, SVS doesn't have any kind of special magic to make their subs blend in with speakers any better than most other sub manufacturers. All you need to do is make an inert enclosure and follow the...

What PSA calls 'satin black' is a lot closer to truckbed liner. It is not satin black in the slightest, and I don't know how they can get away with that claim. The Reaction finish looks to be much...

You know that type of design is pretty easy to build. Do a google search for 'sonotube subwoofer'. You can make a similar or higher performing sub for less than the PC2000 cost. Easy project.

If we compare the Gamma 18 CEA numbers to the S3000i numbers, it seems to pan out. And that is using PSA's own numbers which can be inflated. The specs also suggest it, an 18" with a 3" xmech vs a 15...

The new Klipsch speakers look good. A few changes I would make- since you are getting something beyond 5.1, get bookshelf speakers for surrounds, not bipole surround speakers. Bipoles will not work...

Don't be afraid to ship it back. The Reaction Gamma 18 should have around twice the displacement for roughly the same cost. Go get the Reaction as well and compare them, especially in deep bass where...

The ULS-15 mk2 would definitely be a good sub, but I would be looking at the Hsu VTF3 mk5. It will have quite a bit more deep bass output. The HVL-1s look good, but if you are looking or something...

I would also consider the Rythmik FVX15 for ported $1k subs. For sealed $1k subs, I would also consider the Reaction Gamma 18. For $1k, for me the choice would be between the Hsu VTF15h mk2, Reaction...

Why the Outlaw? For less than the cost of dual PB1000s, you can get a Hsu VTF3 mk5, and for the same price you can get a Reaction Gamma 15. Either one of those will majorly outperform dual PB1000s or...

That chart is garbage and shouldn't be taken seriously. PSA won't let their sub's performance get third party verification, whereas SVS will. Until there is third party verification of that sub's...

The VTF3 mk5 will be an upgrade, mainly from 30 Hz and above, but it depends on what mode you run it in with respect to the VTF15h.

Audiophiles don't listen to music, they just listen to their gear. I would much rather listen to rap, hip-hop, and EDM than listen for how well my speaker system resolves Diana Krall's voice.
