    Too bad you couldn't stuff an SVS in the fireplace

    That would certainly help the looks of that "fireplace"

  • So after going back and forth, finally pulled the trigger over cyber Monday and bought a PC-4000 for $1499. Couldn't pass up on that price. I wanted to go with the PC for the smaller foot print compared to the PB. When I finally was able to unbox it, all I can say is WOW this thing is big, like support column big lol I'm glad I measured my available space before getting it. Now just trying to dial everything in. For someone who has been into a/v for over 2 decades, and who has spent thousands of dollars on it, I know very little as far as EQ and doing it myself outside of Auto EQ like Onkyo's AccuEQ. Wish I knew more people locally that were into things like this, I would be more then happy to pay someone to help me dial things in ha

    Best tips are what you like to hear. Im running a pair of cylinder SVS units. One is the 20-30 PCi and the a PC-2000. I just played with them back n forth music and DVD Til it felt and sounded good. Your ears will tell ya. Gotta go with the gut punch.

    I received my SVS SB4000 today and set it up in my mancave system... My back and my math aptitude tell me that this is twice the sub that the SB2000 is :D .

    I am running it through it's initial paces and breaking it in but my first impressions are over all very good. Deep, refined and manageable.

    I didn't use anywhere near as much foul language as I did setting up my PB16 Ultra with all the settings being on a digital front panel as opposed to the rear PB16 controls.

    I'm doing a couple of upgrades to this rig this week adding a 12VDC linear power supply to my DAC and adding a Marantz AV7704 to replace the AVR (SR5011) I've been using in this rig. In the future I will probably re- swizzle the amps around in this rig either consolidating to a 5 channel A51 or A52+ or just by adding an A31 to handle the fronts and keeping an A23 for rear duty.

    As it is, it's really an impressive little system using the P5's H/T bypass for 2 channel and the SR5011 as a HT... I mean I could even upgrade the fronts to a pair of Usher Mini 2 DMD's but really no hurry there if I could find a pair at a deal I could feel...

    How do you like the sub being right midcenter? Does it even out the sound?

    Been a happy SV Sound customer since 2006 when I got in on the last run of the PS10-ISD subs. Hell of a bargain at $379 after they rebated $50 on top of the sale price. Still going strong and love having a sub that can reach below 20Hz! A shining example of buy once/cry once (was pricey for me back then!).
    In use: Polk LSi15s (sub upgrade), LSiC, LSi9s SVS PB 10 ISD connected to Onkyo TX-NR777. VR3 crossover upgrades ordered for fronts and center.
    Collecting dust: Polk RTi12s, CSi 6A, RTi38s

    I have always liked a centered sub for music for my ears...So many times you are limited in where you can put a sub which makes get it dialed in most important. I don't know if we hear sub bass directionally or not but having it in the middle helps it melt into the sound stage quite well...

    For me - having the sub dialed in with regard to Polarity and phase helps it to blend even if off to the side - still helps it further to have it closer to the middle as possible

    Now I'm running 2 PC 2000's not much of a difference from the PC 2039i but nice to have them matched. Movies are unbelievable.

    Hey everyone,
    Hoping to set up my SB 4000’s today. I think I’m going to set them next to my leather couch. Should I point them toward the couch or away? I have two of them.
  • joecoulsonjoecoulson Posts: 3,560
    I would thing sealed would not matter as much but if there is any way to get them into room corners or directly either side of the tv, that would be ideal.

    Looking for Svs subwoofer sb1000/ sb2000 advice ——small room 8x14.5x7.5 (and WAF so sealed not ported need smallest size possible) planning s20 front and 30 center and 10 or 15 rear (debating on possible mc60 ceiling atmos not sure yet) probable Denon 3600 and LG C9 65”. Vast majority will be movies. I have read 2 subwoofers preferable so assume 2 sb1000 better than 1 sb2000 to provide for all listening positions, But would 2 sb2000 be significantly better in this room with subs in corners either both front corners or one front and one rear diagonally? How often and how much in movies would difference be noticeable? (Either should be a significant upgrade I have an old Def tech 5.1 with 8” 250 watt sub, which to me was surprisingly very good and had been a home theatre pick a long time ago and an old pioneer kuro plasma.)Appreciate the forum’s expertise.
  • jdavidjdavid Posts: 37
    Should also mention one side wall has opening of about 5’ in middle to another room
  • joecoulsonjoecoulson Posts: 3,560
    Two sb2000’s would be fantastic in a room that size. Should really pressurize the room which is what we are after. Of course, two 1000’s would be a significant upgrade over your current situation should $$ prevent the other.

  • jdavidjdavid Posts: 37
    Thanks. Any thoughts on placement either both on front corners v diagonal one front corner and one rear corner near money seat, but want good listening for others also - realize may need to try both but wonder your initial reaction?
  • pitdogg2pitdogg2 Posts: 14,598
    I've always thought that in diagonal corners helped smooth and reinforce low end. In my room they were placed in front and back opposite corners. Different rooms do different things so sub crawling does have its benefits.
