Well, the unthinkable has happened, my SVS let me down. Not that it's the SVS's fault, but rather the room that it's in. The first room I placed it in was flexed and battered by the mighty tube, and I really liked that. Then I moved to a basement room, and after some tweaking, got the tube sounding pretty much like it did upstairs, aside from a noticeable drop in the really low bass (it only went to about 25 Hz before dropping, as opposed to 18 Hz upstairs). But it was a larger room, so I just accepted it. It still sounded great, just missing that extra subterranean boom. Now I've moved to a completely different house with a smaller room (only about 2/3rds the size of the old one), and despite having the exact same volume settings, the SVS sounds absolutely horrid. It's thin, tinny and almost completely lacking in any bass under 30 Hz. Yes, I calibrated again, and the volume level just didn't change. When I stand over the SVS, I hear all that glorious thunder that I've grown accustomed to (and feel the breeze), but when I move three feet back and sit on a couch, the bass all but dissapears. The SVS is in a corner and the couch is about a foot from the opposite wall. HELP! It boggles my mind that a *small* room makes the SVS sound worse than a *large* room. I know it's because of accoustics, but this just doesn't make sense. Somebody reassure my shattered nerves, because as it stands right now, my SVS sounds no better than my old 'consumer grade' sub.
