    Welcome to Club Polk, and my condolences as well.

    I will mention something no one else has. You would see/hear a significant improvement if you added a 5/7 channel separate amplifier of at least 200wpc to ensure that all your speakers were operating to their full potential.

    Enjoy your system!

    I was at Best buy, maybe something was set up wrong.

    There's the issue... Likely a combination of factors, one being the SVS was likely ill-placed and if not installed in a room, was trying to compress an immeasureable number of cubic feet of air. Moving to 18" would make no difference in that situation.

    Itvsna magnolia room with the door closed, but it seemed like it was just a mess of electronics hooked up. Nothing fine tuned. I did love the sleek look with the electronic interface

    An SVS 16Ultra shoud have shaken that room. I demoed one at Fry's in an open room, it was a complete unreal experience. Deep bass that can be felt out side the room.
