Drew, I have a single PB2000 in my 2600 cu. ft living room and I am completely happy with its output with no plans on adding a second. The sound levels it is capable of are far above where I will ever listen. For example, the loudest I listen to movies is normally -15, which is actually much louder than my wife can honestly stand. For music I occasionally go to -10 for a song or two. I can push electronica with the sub running hot up to zero on my AVR and the limiter never lights up.
For movies, even at this moderate volume I get a lot of low frequency room/couch/house shaking. My sub is placed where your position 1 is.
Yep. You basically have a setup similar to HSU Research's mid bass module, you just don't have to spend $500 for it. Your SVS is flat and goes deep, your other sub provides room smoothing and extra mid bass punch. Sounds like a good combo.
From my understanding, a ported sub will have much higher output around its tuning point...i.e. the PB2000 has much more output around 17-20 Hz than the sb2000, but drops off very sharply below this. The SB2000 on the other hand, has lower output in that region, but rolls off more slowly and has more output at lower frequencies. Room gain can dramatically increase this output at low frequencies, whereas no amount of room gain can increase the output of a ported sub where there is none.
Remember, extension and output are different parameters.
Still trying to decide on dual PB1000s or one PB2000, not looking to do dual PB2000s as I don't have space for two of them nor do I think my townhouse neighbors will like two of them. The PB2000 really sounds like a beast, plus it saves me $150 but I like the visual appeal of dual subs flanking my TV stand....ahh decisions decisions.
