The 12.3 driver is the latest n greatest that the pc+16/46 can accept. Is that correct? I just replaced both my drivers with these, a week ago.

Was surprised that they didn't come with the clip on wire connectors, like the original drivers, and the last upgrade driver that I put in these speakers. Simple dyke n strip the wires, and all was good.

Can't really tell any difference in improvement in bass response.

That is correct - the 16-46 PC-Plus woofer mortise in the end-cap can accept the 12.3 woofer, but not the 12.4/12.5.

I am getting a svs pb12-nsd today I am so excited getting rid of a nice but not as deep velodyne spl 1200r for it. I cannot wait to shake my house. What kind of advice do you all have for setup my room is 19 feet long and 11 feet wide 7 foot ceilings. I am pairing this sub with def tec main rears and center so my system should be awesome for movies.

Nice. The PB12 is excellent for movies. You will definitely notice the increased impact. The SPL1200 is no slouch though especially for music. I own one as well and I prefer it over the PB12-plus for music.

I just hooked up a PB-13 Ultra 1000 watt sub to my HT system. I disconnected a DefTech 350 watt sub. Would anyone run the DefTech with the SV Sound or is that heresy?

Different strokes. Power is not a direct indicator of volume so your deftech might max out about 4 db below the svs or maybe less. My thought is that when one sub is much more capable in lower frequencies like your svs using the less capable sub along with it is likely to cause problems rather than solve them. Unless you have a room-caused frequency response problem that happens to fit neatly into the deftech's passband IMO it is likely to make the midbass too loud compared to the deeper frequencies rather than add anything useful. But room anomalies make almost anything possible

The PB12-nsd is excellent. I just watched Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol and War Horse. The battle scenes in War Horse had the room rockin'

Hi Ed.

Do you have the same Bill of Rights with a trade-up subwoofer?
1. If you trade-up to another subwoofer within a year, do you get a 5 year warranty on the new sub?
2. Can you trade-up to another subwoofer with the trade-up subwoofer?

Thanks!

Hi, I am planing to buy the PB12 PLUS but there are some questions I would like to know.

- Does it come with 4 metal spike for carpet?

- Is it really 127 pounds WITHOUT packaging?

I live on the second floor. I was wondering when they ship it to you; does the shipping carrier guy help you to carry this heavy monster up the stairs? If the shipping carrier person does not help you to carry it up the stairs, I may not buy it.

I can certainly tell you that it does weigh at least 125 pounds and you definitely need 2 people to safely move it. I was considering the PB12-Plus until I saw two guys struggling to get it into their Honda Cicic If you have hardwood floors, you could slip a thick towel underneath and slide it into place. I have the PB12-nsd which weighs 65 lbs and it's just small and light enough for one person to handle.

It is unlikely the delivery person would help you carry it up the stairs because of liability issues that may arise should an accident occur. Also, it may be against company policy for the delivery person to assist you.

If weight is a big issue for you--it certainly is for me--then check out the PC12-Plus. Effectively all the performance of a PB Plus, at about 75 pounds.

HA HA HA

I don't particular like the cylinder style but I am sure it sounds good. I will have to find a way to bring it up the stairs. Once I can get it up the stairs, I can move it around myself.

The cyclinders seem easier to move compared to my equal weight box sub lol

I got an idea, once I get it, I will take it apart to make it lighter to bring it up the stairs. Like taking the 12 inch driver out would for sure bring down the weight.

Just to add, the sub comes in a very large box and on a pallet. I was able to get it in my house on my own but I didn't have to deal with any stairs.

You must be in excellent shape? Moving something that large would have given me a hernia

A lot more dragging then lifting was involved. I did have a sports hernia repaired last year though...lol

Ouch! You must have recovered quickly.

How did you move it around the room? Did you do a "crawl" test?

The sub comes with a soft cloth cover over it that actually makes it pretty easy to drag on carpeting. I didn't do a crawl test because I only really had one spot for it in my setup. Worked out good though after running EQ in the receiver.

I was going to get the PB12-plus but I needed to move it into the basement and I didn't want to take any chances.

I thought about the PC12-plus but I find it looks too much like a cat scratching post. And I have cats

Yeah I think the PCs look a little odd in a living room setup but in a dedicated room or basement they are kinda cool...

I have the PB -13 Ultra, 1000 watt... What do fellow Pioneer SC-57 owners do to EQ the sub since MCACC does not do it?

For those who have the PB12 PLUS, can you really feel the bass hitting you during blu-ray action movies?

When I auditioned the new Velodyne top of the line subwoofer at the audio retailer, the bass was so powerful that I can feel the bass hitting me. I can feel my clothes was moving around. On certain action scenes, the bass just hit me on my chest.

The pressure was quite powerful and exciting movie experience. They really cranked up that 18 inch subwoofer.
