My new SVS PC12NSD has just arrived but I haven't hooked it up yet in my system, not until one week when my work load will lighten a little bit. My new SVS will replace a Klipsch RW12d, and I am too excited to hear a difference in terms of sound quality.

For those who previously owned a Klipsch RW12d replaced by any model from SVS, was there a tremendous improvement in the overall sound quality of your system? How did you find the difference between the two brands?

 

My system: Denon AVR 1911, RB 61 ii, RC52 ii, wharfedale surrounds, Panasonic DMP 220, Panasonic Plasma display, room is 2200 cubit ft.

I have already hooked up my new SVS PC12nsd to my system. The difference is big. PC12nsd is deeper, cleaner, and smoother compared with the Klipsch RW12d. Even at high SPL, the PC12nsd has a very clean output.  Klipsch RW12d is good but SVS PC12nsd is thumb up winner.

This is the sort of thing I was hoping to find as I'm in the same situation. More temptation for me to upgrade my RW-12D. It never ends. smile.gif

My RW12d performs well in movies but not in music. Satisfied with its high SPL output but I think there's something missing especially in music. Its a little muddy and boomy and so I have searched from audio forums an able subwoofer that can surpass its performance. I found out that SVS is available in our country and decided to purchase the PC12nsd. 

 

Thanks to SVS, I now own a real subwoofer!

 

PS: By the way, SVS has a very outstanding costumer relations. Email them and they will provide you will very clear instructions/recommendations to improve your system.

Sweet, I've been running a dual sub setup for a while, one RW-12D and an old Infinity HTS-20. I recently decided it's time to get some real subs, as I want more bass in movies and they've been bottoming out lately as I've upgraded everything else. After I got some feedback from the thread I created (below), I went ahead and ordered dual SVS PB12-NSDs!!! Still waiting for them to arrive.

Sure you will not regret purchasing pb12nsd. PC12nsd = PB12nsd. I have just watched Pacific Rim bluray (this movie will keep your subwoofer very busy) and the PC12nsd hits very deep powerful clean bass. If one PC12nsd could be able to deliver this thunderous ultra low bass, I can't imagine how two PB12nsd rock your listening room.
