    OH PLEASE OH PLEASE can we have some pictures of the SVS PB2-Plus? I am really considering getting this subwoofer. We all would be very grateful if one of you SVS folks could post some pictures of the subwoofer. [​IMG]

    Super user Ed pretty much nailed the main parameters.

    We're tweaking the final elements now with the enclosure maker (one of our few "foreign" suppliers... from Cincinnati ;^) for production samples, one of which will go into a photo shoot.

    Making sure this sub met both performance, packaging and shipping goals has been a chore. Doing this at a cost customers will like (and doesn't put us out of business??)... well, it goes way beyond "chore" status.

    We think the results will be worth the wait. If this was a car, it'd be the reincarnation of Tom's blown 454 Chevelle (that he used to mess with when he still had a life ;^). It'll take no prisoners in the under $2,000 price class of music and home theater subwoofers IMHO.

    As always, we have to extend our apologies for taking so long on this new release. I think there is an unwritten rule in the OEM world that says every new model will take twice as long, and have twice as many challenges to overcome as you originally planned. You guys have been very patient. Prices, pics and pre-order info should be out in the next few weeks.

    A few weeks [​IMG] Well, that will give me more time secure everything in the house to reduce the damage when using the PB2-Plus [​IMG] Will the PB2-Plus, tuned to 16Hz, really not be much more than a 16-46PC+? Will the PB2 come with two port blockers so I can try it?

    Eric,

    Actually we've just done some pics of the prototype that came out quite nicely. We've got some loose ends to tie up on the page I plan to post them to however. So, maybe Monday or Tuesdsay then for some exclusive "sneak peeks" of the PB2-Plus. For now, just imagine a PB1-ISD, on some sort of whacked-out growth hormones ;^)

    And yes, we'll include two 4" port blockers. Tom is really the man to comment on the tuning points and SPL capabilities in various configurations.

    Tom's been running a test mule of the PB2-Plus for some time now. He seems pretty pleased (and we're pretty hard to please as you know).

    Ron

    Are there going to be passive versions of the SVS box subs?

    Hi Frank,

    That is certainly a possibility. However, there comes a time when you just have to say...we might have enough subwoofers. I think we'll have about 20 different model shipping by the end of the year.

    I would like to see at least one other box (besides the B4+) offered as a passive unit too though.
