This tells me that the Cap has much higher output capability than the PB13, which I have no doubt is true. Larger driver, larger enclosure, more power.
Could you tell me how the Cap sounds and feels if it is level matched to the PB13?
Your room is huge and I don't think either the SVS or JL will provide that tactile response that blurs your vision and shakes your clothes in a room that large. They didn't in mine, and my room isn't as big as yours.
I've read your experience with interest. I suppose the dual PB13s didn't "provide that tactile response that blurs your vision and shakes your clothes" because they were output limited in your room?
So in order to get that kind of tactile response in your room, did you have to turn up the volume more with the Caps (since they have the extra output capability)?
