    Doily?

    Here I thought that states that insist interior decorators be licensed was just another stupid idea. I hang my head in shame at being proven so wrong by the suggestion that a doily be placed on a subwoofer.

    Just a reminder: Subs are stackable.

    You can hardly see my 2 -12" Klipsch subs stacked in the corner. They sounded pretty good too the last time I heard them. But I liked them more I think when there was one on each end of my couch acting as end tables. That couch would rumble from underneath and the back would too. Those were the good old days. B)

    I saw those on their website the other day, was wondering if they would fit my
    PB12-NSD/2 though, is yours down-firing with the base plate as well?

    So, are you willing to put forth a little effort or are you happy sitting in your skeptical poo pile?

    I have a front firing SVS sub. Do not know if they would fit on the one you have. Give them a call to see!

    (I posted another message but it said it needed approved, if it shows up on here I put the SVS phone number in it) :) good luck with the feet.

    Thanks, but I don't want to call them. I'm afraid they might not talk me out of upgrading... :)

    Mine is front firing. I would guess if you have feet on it now that screw in that the Soundpath ones would work. There are 3 different size screw sets that come with them. The instructions said that all SVS cabinet style subs use the 1/4-20 thread size.

    Here is the SVS Customer service phone number from the instruction book 877-626-5623. 9to9 est Monday to Friday. Maybe they could tell you if the feet would fit that plate that is on your sub. Good luck.

    I have one of the /2 subs as well. The screws go through the base plate & standoffs into threaded inserts in the cabinet. With long enough screws, I think the Soundpath feet will work just fine. Though you'd likely need the 6 pack they sell instead of the 4.
  • polrbehrpolrbehr Posts: 2,081
    Thanks, I wondered since I see they sell them in 6-packs.

    Thanks @gfong for the info too.

    I’ve had my SB16 Ultra for a week now. I gotta say, this thing is amazing! I replaced dual 12” Klipsch subs and couldn’t be happier. I was thinking about going dual but it is absolutely not necessary as this sub fills my room with a ton of headroom to spare (my dedicated room is right at 1200 cf).
    The output of the SB16 is phenomenal and just blows away the Klipsch subs. I added the soundpath isolator feet and that really helped with the rattling of my walls. The first movie I played with this sub was Tron. I never realized the low bass I was missing. With music it’s even better. Expensive but worth it in my opinion.

    Man I'm late to this party I'm running 2 PB 2000's in my main system. Was running them with 3 Polk S 60's but you guys got me so spoiled with the 2000's I had to move em to another room and sold the extra one for 3 SVS prime towers for the main room. Those S60's sound GREAT even for straight up stereo listening in my other room. But I ain't gonna lie those Primes are something special. Those PB 2000's ROCK and with the feet ROCK even more. But it's a huge open area and I hafta run em a little hotter then I like the amp doesn't even get warm tho Lol. But I know to get the sound I want I'll need to upgrade First I'm going dual PC 2000's behind the couches for quads then use the trade up to figure out what I want to do for the upgrades on all 4 Lol. s9e29xvcnimj.jpg

    The Piano Black is beautiful tho.... they do a flawless job... but if it doesn't go with your gear..... oh well you'll just be forced to live with it.... Congrats and enjoy!

    I was concerned about reflections, but after studying things a bit I believe that won’t be an issue. I suppose if it came down to it I could spray a matte black finish on it, but I'm not looking for extra work.

    Hey congratulations on your SB 4000 Svs thinks I'll need dual PB 4000's for my wide open area but I think I'll stick 2 of they're cylinders behind the couches for a near field effect with the fronts well see if I need more. Hope your enjoying your sub always appreciate your insights looking 4ward to your impressions!

    Moving it was easy enough once I put my thinking cap on. After dead lifting the first, well technically the second one, I quickly figured out how to pack and unpack them without any lifting involved.

    You should spike that sub, it'll tighten up the bass.

    I will. I just have no feet on it while I verify that’s the best placement. I just got it. It’s so frigging heavy.

    Question, if any of you have one of these, if you get really close to the driver w your ear, can you hear what can only be described as “ white noise “? Very faint, still present with no rca connection. Again, you gotta be up on it.

    I've got it's baby Huey bother, dead silent, but the sub cable is connected and I'm not pulling it off.

    Is the volume set per your pic at -10dB when you hear the noise?

    I’ve never owned any SVS subs, but my old Velodyne CHT-10 and VX-10B made this noise, along with my friends BIC America F12 and his old Polk PSW-10.

    sure it has a flat response, and sure it has a lot of detail, and yes, it has good and clear lows. But is it enjoyable to listen to? Does it make you grin ear to ear? That’s what really matters.

    Almost sounds like a mini fan inside the box. Again it’s quiet, but I wouldn’t think this level of sub would have that noise present. I have emailed SVS to see what they say.
