I sold my monitor audio subs and ordered mt first sb4000 today with the soundpath isolation feet

I think I have everything sorted with the settings from what I have read.

The IR codes use NEC RC5 as the control protocol. The codes for the IR remote are listed below.

#define VOL_DOWN_IR_CODE 0x020220DF
#define VOL_UP_IR_CODE 0x0202609F
#define PREV_IR_CODE 0x0202906F
#define NEXT_IR_CODE 0x0202B04F
#define ENTER_IR_CODE 0x0202708F
#define BACK_IR_CODE 0x020230CF
#define PRESET1_IR_CODE 0x020228D7
#define PRESET2_IR_CODE 0x0202A857
#define PRESET3_IR_CODE 0x02026897
#define BRIGHTNESS_BTN_IR_CODE 0x02028877


If the Harmony remote uses Bluetooth, Harmony might be able to reverse-engineer a Bluetooth command for volume up/down based on the IR command.

I had a problem with the power supply in svs sb 13 ultra. The entire repair procedure went very smoothly (even though I am from a distant country) The staff was very helpful and responded quickly. Everything I've read regarding reviews of their service has been confirmed.

They definitely have me as a new customer.
Greetings to Ed for helping.

I did get my Harmony Elite working to control the volume (and other functions) on my PB4000. So, so much better than using the little remote. Pure luxury. But..it only worked for a day or so and since then the sub has been unresponsive to the Harmony. However, I haven’t tried to sort it out, either.

My sb 4000 arrived and is already being sent away as it is broken. First cd...2 channel music only, no deep bass, amp pops and turns off within 2 mins and then twice more.

I should have paid more attention to the warranty posts on here. Maybe if the next one works I'll just stick with one sub. I bought 2 monitor audio subs and the second one had all kinds of problema. And now with a doa sub i have no confidence that these subs will eithet work or continue to work for years to come

It also had a small chunk out of the veneer where you could see the mdf on the right side but the packaging was perfect and the foam means the sub is at least 10cm away from the box wall, not to mention that it is double boxed and has a plastic and material covering over it, so it was obviously shipped from the factory with damage and a broken sub. Don't they inspect for damage or even test the subs? How is this even possible?

Just gave my new PB 3000 a thorough workout with Fast and Furious 7 with a 6 DB boost after Audyssey and this thing literally rocks!! Very good tight base output.

Very happy with the awesome performance with movies and also with music it performs in a different league compared to my previous Klipsch 115SW.

Very nice also those presets with the app because with music I scale back on the DB boost.

It wasn't a sustained sine wave, but I don't think it's too far off. It's a loud, sustained, low rumble that lasts for ~3 minutes without letting up. If you get a chance to watch that scene you'll know what I mean. Appreciate the info though, helps put my mind at ease.
Try the opening scenes in " The Dark Knight Rises ". I once had the volume a bit too hot watching that - even my " we love it really loud " friends cried uncle on that one. The subs survived however ( maybe not our ears though ).

Hi Guys, my Name is Maik and i come from Germany.
First sorry for my bad english
Iam an owner of Dual SB16 Ultra and i have a big Problem in Movies.
First in Music they are absolut fantastic, best i listen.
But in Movies, in scenes about 20hz and lower they make a very terrible noise!
The Gain on the subwoofers is -19 and -15.
The Noise when the driver excurssion in lower scenes is more, are (tock, tock, tock or clack, clack, clack)
Is it the limiter? I think its not to loud to hear and with 1500whatts must be more and louder.
Avr is an Harman Kardon 345.
Maybe, is it lfe clipping?
Thanks for for answer on my question.

Maik

Are you sure that all screws are tight?

Especially if you have SVS SoundPath Isolation feet - their screws have a tendency to get loose.

Yes, the screws are tight.
Both subwoofers on original Soundpath Isolation feet.

The Noise come from the Driver. When you hear with ears directly on the Driver the Noise are from it.

Any Information about my settings, maybe it helps to locate the failure.

Crossover on Avr is 80hz.
Subwoofer trimm Level is -2 on Avr.
All 6 PEQ on Subwoofer are - not +
Connection with chinch, mono on both subwoofers.
No abnormalities on Measurements with REW and umik1.

It's pretty strange that you have the same issue on both subs.

I think so too.
Where is the failure?

The first subwoofer had a bad amp.
Then i become a new amp to replacement.
This amp had a failure on chinch port, the air blown from the port
Than i become a new Subwoofer.
And just here and now this problems

Very bad.

Hi Maik,

You said that you have dual SB16's, but in your last post you mention air from the port. (Oops! See the post just below this one. ) Do you have PB16's? That is the larger ported version, where the SB16 is a sealed subwoofer.

In either case, the first thing I would try is dropping the AVR trim level to about -6 and raising the gain level on the subs by a corresponding amount. Let's say to about -15 and -11 respectively. Do you still hear the subwoofers making the same bad noises? Are you using a very high master volume level on your AVR?

I do think that you may be over-driving the subwoofers, with insufficient voltage coming from the subwoofer amps themselves. But, if the problem persists with lower trim settings and higher gain settings, then I would contact Ed Mullen of SVS, directly, for some in-depth trouble shooting.

I hope this helps!

Regards,
Mike

Thank you for your answer.

I have Dual SB16, the Amp for replacement was leaky. Air blows from the amp.
My AVR had a max Level of -9 and + 9 to trimm the Level.
So i try the Level on -2 to -9 in individually steps.
The same steps on both subwoofers.
The problem is still there and the same.
My high master volume level on Avr is -20, max -15.
The beginning scene of Blade Runner 2049 can hear max of 60% volume from the avr, than the subwoofers makes this noise.
This Level is Not loud.

Anyone has an idea to fix this problem?

I’m wondering how much height is added to an SVS sub when you put the isolation feet on. For example, the specs say the PB3000 is 22.9” high with the standard feet, if you take off the rubber feet and put on the SVS Soundpath isolation feet, how high would it be? I’m building an area for my subs and I’m guessing it adds an inch, but I’d rather not guess.

The OE feet are 12 mm tall. The SoundPath Subwoofer Isolation System feet are 40 mm tall. So they will add 28 mm to the height of the subwoofer. There will be some minor compression of the feet - but it won't be much. I would use 28 mm for planning/clearance purposes.

Since many are not familiar with the Metric System. 25.4 mm = 1 inch.
Just though to post this quick reference as quick conversion guide.

Just for a quick education, for those interested. The Metric system is very precise and everything work by a fold of 1000.
1000 mm = 1 meter, 1000 meter = 1 KM. 1 KG is 1000 g, and also weight the same as 1 Liter (1000 ml), and so on.
That said, while been more precise. I still prefer the old Imperial System, but do use both. Depending of the application needed for.

Just though to post this quick reference as quick conversion guide.

Just for a quick education, for those interested. The Metric system is very precise and everything work by a fold of 1000.
1000 mm = 1 meter, 1000 meter = 1 KM. 1 KG is 1000 mg, and also weight the same as 1 Liter (1000 ml), and so on.
That said, while been more precise. I still prefer the old Imperial System, but do use both. Depending of the application needed for.

I think 1KG is 1000G? And 1G is 1000MG? nonetheless, even though I live and breathe by the US measuring system, to this day I question the logic behind its conception and creation lol.

By the way I just listed my SVS SB-3000 Piano Black in the classifieds in case anyone browsing is in the market for one of them. They are excellent by the way, only wish I had a bigger room and living space to fully appreciate the sheer capability of it.

You are indeed correct, I must had a brain fart when posting
Went to my previous, and corrected my mistake.
Thanks for pointing this out, to me

Svs supplier finally had my sub picked up but no time arranged for a replacent. $3519au inlcuding the feet, 2 and half weeks and I still don't even have a sub. From what's written above with the sb 16 ultra it sounds like investing any more money in this brand would be a risk. I have had 2 subs for 10 years but I think I'll just have to stick with one if the replacement actually works.

Hi, I currently own the SVS NSD-12PB sub and in my area I don't seem to notice the effects from it that much. I have an open concept and the sq. footage is around 3000. I was thinking about upgrading to either the PB3000, SB4000 or SB16, I am going to stay with SVS because I live in Canada and they have dealers here.

My main use is for both movies and music. As anyone upgraded from the NSD sub to one of the ones I listed and did you find it to be a substantial improvement ? I looked at the PB4000 but it's too big, and I only have room for 1 sub.

One other question I have, my current sub wattage is 400, while the PB3000 is 800. Is the only purpose for the increase in wattage is to play the sub louder or are there other benefits ?



Thanks
