SVS PB-12NSD vs PB2000?

Any real huge difference in the two for the extra $300? I’m more of a movie guy with some music. Going in a 20x20 room, replacing a Paradigm PDR 10 that’s about 10 plus years old. Amp is going to be a Denon 4500z

The PB-2000 has an extra 100W (RMS) so it should have a bit more overall output and maybe slightly stronger sub-20Hz response but, IMO, not enough to merit the $300 premium over the PB12 (which will be a significant upgrade over the PDR-10).

Just what I wanted to hear. If I don’t like it I can always upgrade or just get two.

I thought the PB2000 averaged 3db more ? thats pretty significant but then again there's stiff competition at that price point which makes the PB12 or TWO a much better value

FWIW, according to basshead81's comments in a couple of threads including this one:
Quote:
… The PB2000 has 2.5db more output above 25hz and a shallower roll off below port tune so it extends deeper. The PB12-NSD had a very steep 48db per octave filter. Both are still great subs, but at 499.00 the PB12 is a better deal. …

FWIW, I had both the PB-2000 and PB12-NSD in a 2700 ft^3 room and the difference in the two subs was minimal. I think in a larger room the PB-2000 would allow for some additional output potential, but depending on how you run your sub(s) it may not be worth a $300 additional cost. I would rather opt for going dual PB12's.
