I've experienced "just" a single V3600i and it is absolutely ridiculous. If you weren't hard of hearing before, you will be now!

I still have a mounted and framed copy of this up in my attic from my single days, can't understand why the wife relegated it to the attic

The V3600 boxed up is almost the size of the bed of my pick up. I've taken it out of the box and everything looks good.

Yep that's me. I'm just a little over 5' 10" but I'm leaning on the subs so they look a little taller than they really are but they are big.

Hopinater's pretty ripped. I'm assuming he carries those V3600i easily by himself.

I was hoping to buy something now that will 'improve' the bass in this big space, but be excellent for the next place. We currently watch bluray material at a MV of -10 or so, and it is mostly 2 people watching (so all listening positions probably don't have to be perfect).

I am not in the US so I don't have free trials, and I will list the prices that we pay in Australia just for reference in making decisions. My thinking is to sell the PB2000 and buy all new-although, I could keep it I suppose if it was worth doing.

1- Dual V1800s ($6198 pair)
2- Dual V1500s ($4900 pair)
3- Single V3600 and keep PB2000 nearfield ($4250)
4- Single V3600 and sell PB2000
5- Something else? Eg, 1 x V1800 or V1500 and keep the PB-2000? Sealed? Other?


Appreciate your thoughts.

I can not speak to your specific situation, but I can say I love my dual V1800s. I have only 2400 cu. ft. And they just boom it out of the park. Real deep lows, right and plenty of headroom. I am still giggly with these things. I have had single subs for years and duals just add a new dimension by really filling the space. Honestly all the PSA subs are good products, Tom and team have extensive experience and delive the best bang for the buck of almost any sub around.

Thanks for your opinions people

Kluken- I wonder how a v3600 would go in that space?
I would love to have dual v1800s but am seriously considering a v3600 (and perhaps keeping my PB2000) because of the $1948 price difference between them!

Wow guys... thank you for all the nice compliments.

It's been a busy few hours…I haven't even touched the speakers yet, they are still sitting in their boxes. But I have both V3600's happily in their places and they are pretty well dialed in (Pre-Audyssey). I have some peaks but no real dips between 12Hz and 100Hz so I'm happy (I'm actually pretty good down to 10 Hz). I might have to pick up an Antimode but that can wait.

As some have noted the V3600 is an absolute beast but I have to say two are downright intimidating (in a good way). When I turned them on things started rattling all over the place. I'll report back as I get things set up but I think this is going to be a lot of fun.

Your situation does have different variables. I m sure a V3600 would be awesome and while I don't have a WAF to worry about, I feel it would look a bit obnoxious inky setting. The low profile of the dual V1800's blends well with my setup and I am barely tapping into their full potential. As someone else said I think the PB2000 will be out classed by the PSA. Best of luck in your decision.

How did you end up moving those. Did you put a blanket underneath and slide them or did you just muscle them around?

You know, the V3600i isn't too bad to move around once it's on carpet. I'm hoping he used furniture sliders as even a toddler could move it around then, but they do 'walk' pretty easily by themselves. I actually felt the S3000i was a little more awkward to move with woofers on both sides. You can't just pick it up and haul it around without exercising lots of caution. If you use the one side that doesn't have the amp on it and put that toward your chest, you still have to be very careful since you have the subs on either side of the box. Though I haven't hit the Checkout button yet on dual S3600i, I can only imagine those would be even worse and definitely a two-person job up and down the stairs.

Reach out Hop if you get the Antimode. I had some direction from Basshead and a call from Tom V when using the AMDC 2.0. The tones from Audyssey are nothing compared to the tones that will scream out of the AMDC, and the shaking....things falling off of the walls! I thought my foundation was going to crack, as I never heard other parts of the house upstairs shake like that. I only have one V3600! I do say that I think that the bass/LFE that I am getting with the AMDC 2.0 seems more centralized. I only messed with it last weekend a little bit, but the bass is a strong, but it did not seem to shake the chairs as much when sitting in the kitchen upstairs. Maybe I did not have it as loud during a particular scene, but it just seems like the there is more bass in just my viewing room. Kind of hard to explain, but that is how it feels. I do like the AMDC. Now maybe a house curve. The subs look awesome and I can imagine how revisiting some movies with the dual V3600s are going to be. Congrats and let em rip!

Little bit of both except I used cardboard.

To be honest the most annoying thing about moving them is getting around all the furniture in the room. Travis is right though, they walk pretty well and the tall deign means you aren't really bending over that much. For the longer distances I use a piece of cardboard to slide it around on by tipping it on an edge and dragging it. For the shorter distances I walk it. The key is just take your time.

Don't get me wrong though they are every bit of 196 lbs. I moved the XV15se by lifting and carrying so I could move them around the room pretty quickly. The V3600 doesn't move fast unless you have two people carrying it.

I will once I'm certain of their places. I thought I was certain but I was laying in bed and wondering if I could get things a little bit better by moving the new one to front of the room (right now I have them both in the two rear corners of the room).

But moving the sub to the front is almost a commitment because as I just posted... they don't move easily. Glad I have today off, I have a lot of work ahead of me. I'm just drinking my coffee so I can get started.
