I'm planning to upgrade from PB1000 to PB2000pro

Hello.


I'm thinking a lot about this, I have a small room (3x4meters=12m2) and the PB1000 fill the room (totally sealed) just fine, but... on the really low frequencies (below 20hz) I really think that is lacking, even on my small room.


Also, with the peq app I will be able to control the sub modes without an external dac just the my mic and rew.


Do you guys think it will be a good upgrade? or it will be overkill for my small space? I'm 99% convinced it will be an amazing upgrade, but I need to hear other people say it . Btw, I have no room for a second sub, in case someone is going to suggest that.


Thanks!

if you are chasing ULF response, you may very well never find the end of that journey. Good luck.

Do you guys think it will be a good upgrade? or it will be overkill for my small space? ...
IMO:
- It will be a good upgrade as it will provide stronger output down to and below 20Hz.
- It will not be overkill for your space.

I'd vote for a Rythmik FVX12 or a FV15HP (if your budget allows it). When comparing the PB200 Pro to FVX12 it looked very open shut case. I think the PB2000 pro is very close to cost to FVX12 but you may compare the results to pb3000 in terms of SPL and lower frequency extension than (even) Pb3000.
If budget is not a criteria, FV18HP is the way to go. It might break your house, but the sound is awesome.

Based on what? There are no independent tests of the PB2000 Pro or the FVX12.



Besides the OP is not in the U.S.

Klipsch RF-62II, RC-500, RS-400, SVS PC12+,
Def Tech SC8000
Onkyo RZ820

Based on my opinion and also specs. The lower extension of both Rythmik models is better than the SVS. Unbiased and unpaid opinion. Even I'm not in the USA. Svs sells for a higher premium the world over. Where I'm the Fvx15 sells cheaper than a pb2000 pro. Now if you're going to compare those 2,I'm sure you'll agree which is a better subwoofer.
