I use to have 40's in the back but they didn't fit in well with my new theater room so they found their way to ebay. I have the 60's as mains and I really miss the sound of the 40's! I really like your Rotel amplifier. How would you describe the sound...... I'm currently using a B&K receiver and love the way it sounds but I always feel like more power would make things sound even better.
I initially wanted to get rid of the little wall that comes out, but it turned out it was there for a reason. Next option was to build another wall in front so I could have a fixed screen, but I decided I didn't want to lose sq ft - plus I didn't want the speakers in front of the screen. At least now the screen is out of the way when I am not using it.
Regarding the trim - I actually painted it white, so I think I will leave it alone for now.
Why both the Servo 15 and Seismic 12? Does one give you something the other doesn't or is it more of the best of both worlds? Do you run both at the same time? If you had to choose between the 2 which would remain in your basement? I have both of those subs on my short list (along with the SVS PB Ultra 13) but I am leaning towards the Servo 15.
I have had the Servo for several years, and just purchased the Seismic. I thought that due to the size of the basement, it would be a good idea to have a second sub. I use them together, and the extra bass it very noticeable - however it is probably overkill. One reason for going with the Seismic as the second was due to the small size. I wanted to be able to put it anywhere in the room - possibly behind the couch. Can't do that with the Servo.
And while I haven't listened to the Seismic by itself, if I had to choose, I would go with the Servo. Even after several years, I am still completely impressed with it. I know a lot of folks around here are very pro SVS, but after hearing mine and an SVS, I liked the Servo much better.
I let the places I stored pictures expire. I have some pictures stored on my old hard drive. I'll dig them up and fix the links ASAP.
That's good to hear about the Servo. I need a sub for my gaming room which, like yours, is just off of my theater area. I have Paradigm v3 590 and 2 sets of 40's so I figured the S15 would be a perfect match. I am thinking about upgrading to the 100's and the newer model v4 center but I think it might be overkill when the area is mainly used for gaming and watching some hi def sports.
I transferred my old theater pics from one hard drive to the other. I uploaded a couple pictures to this site. I have since made quite a few changes to this room. I am currently remodeling the other side of my basement to make room for a weight training area or I would take newer pics of my theater and gaming rooms. When I get done my WR I am going to finally finish my theater once and for all (the only exception being upgrades to the hardware ;-))
