    The SVS SB1000/2000 are very nice subs. the 2000 has a bigger driver and more power which = more bass.

    I like the HSU offerings under a grand more than I do the SVS. It's the 3000 series and up where the SVS shine the most. If dual SB2000 are in the budget I's look at HSU ULS15 http://hsuresearch.com/subwoofers.htmlor a single SVS PC4000 https://www.svsound.com/collections/4000-series/products/pc-4000

    For about $1200 to the door a HSU VTF2 dual drive setup would be nice

    The PC4000 is a 47" high cylinder that doesn't take up that much floor space, might meet WAF
    When I was a kid my parents told me to turn it down. Now I'm an adult and my kids tell me to turn it down.

    Will look but reason for selecting the Svs sb models is the need for smaller sealed subwoofer for space and WAF reasons.

    There's a fantastic Velodyne Optimum 8 for sale in the classifieds here by me.

    I hear you there, took my wife some time to get use to the BIG VTF3. When a movie sounds better at home than a theater the wife accepted it.

    The SB2000 would be your way to go then. A 14" cube sub for the most part. The HSU ULS-15 is a little bigger @ 18".

    I'd wait till Thanksgiving. SVS has had a NSD sub come out around that time the last few years. It's a middle of the road sub between the 1000 & 2000. Last year a pair of SB12NSD I think was right around a grand.

    The Velodyne Optimum 8 sealed subwoofer is 11h x 10.5w x 14d and has a digital display, 4 pre-sets for easy switching from HT to music via the remote, -3dB is 26Hz/overall 16Hz, comes with a calibration mic and a high gloss black piano finish.

    The SB2000 is 14.6h x 14.2w x 17.1d. No display, no remote, no pre-sets, no calibration mic. Piano black costs extra. However, it does have a lower -3dB point.

    If you have time wait to see if the NSD subs come out this year. way better than SB1000 and almost as good as the SB2000

    Thanks. Not familiar with this model— any reason to favor it over Sb2000?
    How does it compare ?

    $$$$$

    Last few years SVS has sold a special model called PB or SB 12NSD starting in mid November or so. These are in between the 1000 and 2000 in specs and price. They are very nice subs.

    Ah, in that case you're making the right choice going with SVS. The Velodyne would have been wasted.

    I bought my brother the SB12NSD for Christmas last year much to his wife's dismay....lol

    Thanks guys will watch for the 12nsd.

    mrloren- what is the preferable distance for how far the S20s should be out from the wall behind them (due to the power port design primarily I assume) for best sound since I will be using them in a small room as front speakers for home theatre only. Appreciate the good advice I am receiving on the forum.

    I'd start at a foot. Great thing about stands is you can move them a bit

    Due to WAF he has to get two smaller subs. I agree a VTF3 or PB3000 would be a lot better for HT.

    Well I can work on WAF for stands ( not for two larger ported subwoofers so need to stick with two sealed but room is small and corners should help).
    Any particular (WAF pleasing ) good stands people have used for S20s?
    Thanks as always to all.

    Just don't make the mistake of settling for something that isn't going to satisfy and then have to take a loss later... 2 x sb2000's might look nice. SB3000's or 2 sb4000's would be great.... Not going ported for the HT is another compromise... Go big and deep... Is it the height of the ported subs that is an issue??? The holes?

    Skylan stands are nice and customizable... very sturdy as well.

    It is the size of the ported subs, and my hope was with two sb2000 or maybe two 12 nsd if SVS sells them later this month and in corner placement of both for a boost, and in a 8x15 room, using Audyssey XT 32 to adjust, the bass would be good - ( probably not to others on Forum levels). Certainly a major improvement over my single smaller def tech subwoofer!

    (I used up some of my WAF on my floor standers in the living room, which are remaining where they are despite a renovation.)
