I have 2 SVS PB-1000 subs in my HT (living room) its about 5200sq ft. I have a budget of 2k. Now i could add another PB-1000 and a mini DSP2x4 or retirn the subs I have and go with 2 PB-2000 Pro subs. Advice and opinions welcome.

Man, either I hope you mean cu. ft, 500 sq ft, or may I formally request to be adopted as adult.

Two larger subs. Or one enormous sub. If budget allows.

Since most room correction systems only support x.x.2 for two subs, adding a third sub I think will be non-optimal.

If those are your choices then definitely go for the 2000's. Ideally, for a room that size I'd recommend dual SB16's.

The dual PB-2000s are definitely the better option. However, as John Dirk said, you will not achieve "chest slam" without spending significantly more.

To be honest, "chest slam" is overrated and ally a sign of an excessively hot setup.

As far as size, the SB-16 isn't really any larger than a PB-2000. Budget wise, of course, they are far apart.

He did mention getting a minidsp which he could use to dial in the three subs.

Im not getting that chest slam that i would like.

Chest slam comes from bass frequencies an octave or more higher than what is typically generated in an action movie. If your current sub set-up is otherwise performing satisfactorily and isn’t maxed out, save your money.
