I believe the speciality of the PB13/PB16 is low frequencies rather than chest slam.
These are my first 'real' subs. I wouldn't saying upgrading is something I do often, but every now and then I look to see what else is out there.

Ya, same province, but Cold Lake is almost 400 miles from me. Probably farther than I want to drive, but never say never.

Admittedly, no, they likely are not. My space is almost rectangular, but one length does jut out a few feet to make it a bit of an odd shaped room. Currently have the subs kitty-corner to each other (front and back wall). Years ago I did use REW when I had only one sub. In that time not only have I added a second sub, but I have also removed my back row of seating - so now the back wall has opened up for sub placement. I also now only have a suface pro 3 and not sure how I would hook up the mike and also connect to my reciever (to run the test tones).
I probably should figure this out and make sure sub placement is good before getting anything else. It is just I have forgotten all I learned about REW and not terribly keen on figuring it all out again, but I probably will have to.

That thing is a behemoth. According to the site, no more stock on the V3601. I can't imagine what it would cost to ship to Canada. Also not sure how I would even move that thing around when trying to figure out where to place it.
I wonder if a guy would be better off with one of those or 2 optimally placed v1512s.
