    Opinions wanted on system purchase

    I got myself a SVS 20-39 PCi subwoofer, and the best way to describe it is as you said And if you do get an SVS, you have to get the Pink Floyd- Dark Side of the Moon SACD its awesome with an SVS, a whole new experience.. Sorry I don't have any other speaker recommendations.

    Best 5.1 Home Theater Speakers for Under $1,000

    I will also recommend JBL, I love my JBL setup along with an SVS subwoofer (20-39PCi). My S38II's are discontinued, but the JBL E50's are just about the same in every way (I own both S38/E50), along with the EC35 for the center, and E10's or N24II's for surrounds. I got my setup at...

    No sound out of left speaker

    Hi, The other day I ran my speaker ID through my H/K AVR 230, and there was no sound coming from my left front speaker. So I checked all my connections, and they are fine. I put in my calibration disc, and selected the speaker ID in Dolby and DTS, still no sound from my front left, but while...

    is it normal not to hear it?

    I was just testing my sub before I found this thread, and I was playing a 20hz sine wave to see what db's I could get off of my SVS. Im in a 10x10 bedroom and my RS meter reads at 102db @ 20hz. I've never heard the clicking noise, so I figure my sub hasn't bottomed out. I can feel my bed shaking...

    Too Much Sub for Room Size?

    I have a SVS 20-39 PCi in my 10x10 bedroom, and with it calibrated it sounds great! But if the gain is turned up more than 1/2, its just annoying.

    Good bookshelf speakers for, well, bookshelves.

    I've have these JBL E50's in my living room for a 2ch music setup. They sound great, and they are front ported. They are HUGE bookshelf speakers though.

    Help with a Subwoofer

    I purchased an SVS Cylinder sub for $600 (20-39PCi), and I have to say that it is great with music. I don't listen to rap, so I don't know how well it would work with that kind of bass. I bought it for my home theater, but it has turned into a music room now. It is very clean and tight and...

    Whats your favorite sub and surround sound demo?

    Master and Commander has my favorite surround sound, and I like the Darla scence for Finding Nemo for bass. Fight Club also is a great bass demo disc. I know its not a DVD but Pink Floyd- Dark Side of the Moon SACD has some of my favorite bass/surround.. sounds.

    New to subwoofers

    ok, you need 1 RCA wire (female on both ends) one end should be plugged into the SUBW1 on you NAD and the other side of the wire should be plugged into the white "in" on the sub.
