    Picked up a second Paradigm servo-15 last week and watched TPM last night. Thought the house was going to fall over!! My room is quite large and the addition of the second sub has really filled in the bass. I am using the X-30 crossover to control both subs, took some tweaking, but it does sound great!

    Congrats.
    I have a SVS 20-39PC which is comparable to your Servo15.
    Down the road I may get a second one but for I'm pretty happy with my single sub.

    Lou,
    I was thinking of adding an SVS, but got a great deal on the second servo from my dealer. With the state of our loonie and the customs and shipping fees, this worked out to be the cheaper alternative. And I don't feel I sacrificed anything by getting the servo instead of the
    20-39PC, both are great units.

    Jens,
    Barring something unusual...it's usual best to stay with the same model sub as you expand the woofage. since you alreayd have one servo15 and it's among the better subwoofers you can get...there's little reason to look elsewhere.(unless there's something you don't like about the 15?) Of course...cost will factor into it...to a large degree too.(you don't want to add a second servo15 if you can get a Vleodyne HGS18 for the same cost for example).

    I have heard alot of subwoofers and the Servo-15 is one of the very few commercial subwoofers that I have ownwed.
    IMO a 15" driver sealed servo controlled sub simply cannot be compared to a 12" driver vented subwoofer no matter what the output.
    I build my own subwoofers now but if I were going to purchase another commercial unit it would be a Servo-15.
    You made a damn fine choice to run two of these and I could'nt imagine one needing any more bass that what two of these can do in a moderatly large room.

    Way to go Michael!..
    Great choice in adding that second servo-15 to the room.
    Now you will feel the bass impact consistently from the seating area.
    BTW,,The Parasound HCA-3500 is doing great in it's new home..Sure acted as a furnace to the room for the first couple of weeks. [​IMG]
