    Hey guys,
    I'm going to be upgrading to a SVS 20-39 next week, hurray. [​IMG] Right now, I'm using a JBL PB12 as my main sub and a PB10 in the rear. When I added the PB10, I thought that it added a new dimension to my setup, espicially with discrete effects from the surround channels! (ie. AFO when the F16s circle around to escort, you could hear the afterburners kick in behind you...)
    Do you think with the addition of the SVS or two in front, that a rear sub is no longer necessary? Was the added affect because my PB12 was not up to snuff?
    What do you think?

    Eric,
    "Do not try and end your upgrading. That's impossible. Instead,only try and realise the truth."
    " What truth?"
    "There is no end to upgrading"

    I thought about this and what convinced me not to was the fact that software just didn't provide enough information in your surrounds that would require a sub. But after Star Wars EP1, I think I may have to re-think that. I set the rears to large and the bass pretty intense and that's with the speakers 3 feet above me.

    I'm using two 16" subs for my rears since I upgraded to EX which is almost 1.5 year ago. Now I couldn't live without it.
    There are lots of low-end signals in the rear channels. Just spin SPR or TPM and deactivate all speakers expect the surround subwoofers and you'll see what I mean!
    I'm using an electronic crossover at 80Hz with 24dB/Oct. for optimum separation and a Crown CE-1000 amplifier for the surround subs.
