Thanks for the link. I'm not sure that there would be a significant difference. I assumed there would be a difference of some sort due to a combined change in the size of the enclosure, type of amp, and a new driver.

I would consider adding a second PB10 but there are no longer made

I get the impression that the new generation of 12" NSD subs have put some distance between them and the last version of the PB10.
I still wonder why SVS discontinued the PB10. I know of several AVS members that started with the PB10, wanted more and moved up to the Plus line. So it wasn't just an entry level sub, it was also an inexpensive introduction to the rest of the SVS products.
I'm not sure why they discontinued the PB10. Maybe it cost too much to produce? Not sure.

The room is not a sealed room as the stairs lead into the room. There are also 2 doors on one side of the room (one for the laundry room, one for the utility room).
I have watched movies, such as Transformers 3, at a friend's place and you can really feel the bass. In my room, I can also feel the bass too, but not on the same level as at my friend's place. He has a 13: SVS Plus sub which I cannot afford to get at the moment.
