A little over a year ago I ordered an SVS 20-39pc and just could not wait to get it. After it arrived I just could'nt see what the fuss was about. I could'nt feel the bass that well. I should have known it was something with my setup when the SVS knocked my paradigm monitor speaker off the bracket form which it set. Can't feel the bass my ass. I sent it back and got a Hsu VTF-2 instead. Here's the thing, what I came to realize is my room is a mess. I used to sit 9ft from the sub, where the SVS was placed, and the bass was not that great. But when you sit 12ft from the sub the bass hits hard and blends better, I discovered this after the SVS was gone. I remember playing a scene from The Matrix, when neo rescues Morpheus. The sound of the Gatling gun unloading is a sound I have yet to produce on my Hsu VTF-2. The bass on that scene with the SVS was so,so...DAMN!!! For some reason that scene sounded good no matter where you were in the room. The point of this thread? Before you judge a subwoofer make sure it is set up properly. Give it time ,calibrate it, make sure its in a good location relative to the room. That old throw the box, or cylinder, in the corner and forget about it saying is crap. I will have justice soon, once I get the new PB2+. Heh,heh,heh.....
