    any bad experiences with b-stock subs from svs

    well,it seems that svs is well trusted so I may order one. I am just having a hard time deciding between the pb12 and the pb10.

    Blade Trinity Review?

    just seen it and I don't think that this movie's soundtrack is nothing of what blade II was and I was looking forward to hearing the dts es track and was left rather disappointed. Video was good. Can't say much about the film itself.

    posibble to cause burn in on a direct view tube

    I notice that off the left hand side of my tv is somewhat of a darker vertical strip that comes down when the tv is off. It looks like as if it is a bur in image, but can you actually do that with a crt? It is maybe like a cm or just a bit less but you can only see it when the tv is off.
