Dual sub for SVS PB1000......

Hi,


My living room size is approx.225 sq.fts., Currently I am using SVS PB1000 subwoofer since 2015, happy with the overall performance of this sub, but still it is not giving chest thumping bass….. now I am thinking of adding one more SVS PB1000… will it make a big difference? Will I get chest thumping bass?


but considering it’s current price, it is out of my budget…. What are other options left? and it should be a good match with SVS PB1000…..

A second PB-1000 will provide additional overall output, but not necessarily the level of mid-bass ("chest thumping bass") you seem to be looking for.

Before you buy another sub to solve the problem, have you exhausted other possible way of improving the performance of your current sub such as trying different placement relative to your main listening position (MLP)?

Also, how is your current sub set up (what are its controls set to)? Have you run your AVR's auto-cal program (Audyssey, MCACC, YPAO, etc.) and then bumped up the subwoofer level in the AVR's speaker set-up menu?

Can you place your PB-1000 nearfield? That is, within 4 feet of the main listening position?

Are you coming from car audio? Easy to get chest thumbing bass in a car. A good 10" sub can achieve that.

However, the inside volume of a car is no bigger than a walk-in closet. To get that kind of bass in a room requires A LOT of sub.

Sell your PB-1000 and get an HSU VTF-3 MK5. Plus it has different tuning options that you can tweak that could help you meet your goals.

HSU VTF-3 MK5 is out of budget, any economical solution using PB-1000?
