What do we lose in sound quality in 12 NSD compared to these other more expensing SVS subs?
I had a pair of these for a while, but got them replaced by a single KEF Kube 10b, which blew them both out of the water in SQ. Got a second Kube shortly after. SB12 lacks some punch, especially at low volumes. Even though SB12 was originally positioned between SB1000 and SB2000, IMHO, it loses to them both. YMMV.
1. Samsung UN55MU7000, Yamaha A2070, KEF R700, R200c, 2x Kube 10b
2. Panasonic 50" (plasma), Yamaha A550, KEF R300s, Q100s, Kube 12b.
