    Subwoofers, Bass, and Transducers
     So was about to pull the trigger on a SVS PB2000 when the tax man cometh.  I relocated to MI and will be charged tax for an SVS Sub.  So now the cost of my list of subs goes something like this:   PSA XV15:  799 + Free Shipping + no tax = 799.00 SVS PB2000:  799 + Free Shipping + 35ish Tax...

     I need advice please. I can see taking up more space is one disadvantage of having 2, but what about the performance part. What can I expect from 2 vs 1? Thanks,
  8. Gain, trim & headroom

    Subwoofers, Bass, and Transducers
    I discovered something very interesting today.....the lower I can get Audyssey to set my sub level, the more headroom I have. I was getting it close to -6db with Audyssey so I could boost it by 6db ending up at 0db and I was getting a little distortion at "0" MV. Completely by accident I had...

  11. Opinions....PB2000/XV15, or XS30

    Subwoofers, Bass, and Transducers
     Assuming one were willing to spend the $800 or $1150 on either of these subs in a 2525 cubic foot room, how would everyone vote?  I find the PB2000 and XV15 too similar to worry over the difference, so it is really a comparison of an $800 ported sub vs the sealed dual 15".  The more research I...

  14. looking at subs that dig DEEP for under $700.

    Subwoofers, Bass, and Transducers
    Let me start by saying I know this is commonly asked question, but with new products out and on the very near horizon I felt it to be fair game to ask... I am presently running 3 subs (2 boston rally 12s in custom boxes for home use and a boston cps12wi) that I got free from my old boss. I...
  15. Sealed Subs or Ported Subs (Dual XS15 vs Dual XV15) For my Room?

    Subwoofers, Bass, and Transducers
    Hello guys! Long time lurker here that finally got the guts to do his first post. I'll get the straight to the point, I'm split between either getting dual XS-15s or dual XV-15s for my room. Would sealed subs work better in a small room like mine (about 1200 cubic ft)? It says the XS-15 would...
  16. Kef T101 speakers and different sub

    Audio Theory, Setup, and Chat
    I recently purchased the Kef T105 and while the T-2 sub is nice, I was considering swapping in a more powerful sub to give more chest thumping bass. I was thinking about the SVS PC12-NSD or maybe the power sound audio XV-15. How would these work with my T101 satellites? I would imagine this...

    Subwoofers, Bass, and Transducers
     I have read a few sub reviews and being a newbie to the whole audiophile thing I am having difficulty determining the best budget sub for my room.  Perhaps budget and audiophile is a oxymoron.  It is a basement room 18x25x7 about 3,200 cu ft. and the flooring is carbonized stranded bamboo..  I...

    Subwoofers, Bass, and Transducers
     Up until recently, I was running a Mirage Nanosat 5.1 system, with two extra Nanosats being used for the surround back channels, and an Omnisat V2 CC instead of the standard Nanosat CC.  I recently purchased a pair of Klipsch Synergy F-10 floorstanding speakers for my front left and right...
