    I got an extra $200 for my B-day, and so I have just enough for a 25-31 shipped (600).

    Im in a 10x10 bedroom with

    -JBL S38II Mains
    -S-CenterII
    -N-26II SL/SR, N-24SB
    -H/K AVR230
    -Replacing a Sony WM-500
    _________________________

    I have read alot about SVS in the past 3 Months and I saw that I can get the 25-31 tunned to 22hz for no extra cost.

    I have seen alot about shipping also, what would be the best to ship the sub to So. Cal (92308)? Just UPS?

    Is there anything else that I need to know? Should I contact SVS and ask them some questions?

    Thanks to everyone that owns an SVS for showing me a supposedly good sub, I will soon join everyone in SVS heaven

    Nathan,

    You could check the SVS site and see if they have any "B" stock models for what you are looking for. This could mean a bit of a savings of $$ for you.

    Yes, you should e-mail SVS along with the specifics (room size, other gear: receiver, speakers, etc.) to ensure you've picked the best model for your setup. Even if SVS concurs with your choice, it'll just let you know that your selection has been validated. [​IMG]

    that have the PB1 for 549, would that be better than a 25-31 tunned to 22hz, or is that just one of "those" kind of questions that is impossible to be answered?

    Im just going for the "22-32 PCi", its all I have money for. How do I get the 22hz model? Put the request in through e-mail or in the comments area in check out? It will be another week before I can order it, so any comments are welcome.

    Nathan,

    As mentioned, email SVS and they'll tell you all you need to know. Their response time is quick and their advice helpful. It's the best audio manufacturer I've ever dealt with.

    I'd like to know the layout of your 10x10 room. I have a 11x12 room and have no idea where to put the seating, display, or surrounds. [​IMG]

    Ok, well I will talk to SVS, do I just send my questions to the tech email?

    __________________________________________________ ______________________
    Garrett, my HT is also my bed room, so my seating is my bed. As for the surrounds I placed them on shelves 6in from the celling, angled/pointed down at me. My SB speaker is a wall mountable (4in 2-way) and it is at the same height, pointed down at my bed. I gave you a rough sketch of my layout, and I can get pictures if you are in desprate need of ideas.

    Johan,

    Ask around, maybe you can find someone nearby. We send more subs to Sweden than just about any other European country. Your very good exchange rate (against the weak dollar) is probably the reason.

    But more and more I'm thinking you are the only one in Sweden that does NOT have an SVS ;^)

    Good choice Nate, that sub should really rock your 10x10 room!

    I sure hope it does, im just waiting for a response from SVS.

    I convinced my mom to get one to! So it looks like I will have 2 SVS's on the way in a couple days. Its not going to rock the living room like my room though (HUGE living room), but im sure it will do alot of damage.

    Like Ron said. There are a lot of members on this forum that are from Sweden that have an SV Sub. You might find someone in your area that has one that wouldn't mind you stopping by for an audition.

    I am sure with the fantastic HT you are in the process of building that adding an SV Sub would be the icing on an already great theater.

    Getting OT but I'll have to ask. Are the subs you're selling to Europe passive models only, or do you built active models with 220V amps? I didn't see a switch for 110V/220V in my PCi so a simple cord change wouldn't do it.

    The reason I am asking is I have a lot of friend moving back to Finland (neighbor to Sweden) and they are very interested in SVS after hearing mine. Most of them would rather have an active sub.

    Sami,

    All our products are available in 220V configuration, all active subs too. We do not use a voltage "switch" however (such switches are generally frowned upon by electronics makers). They are rather wired internally by our amp factory and set to either 110v or 220v depending on the order.

    Nathan/Johan,

    If you have any questions about importing an SVS, just drop me a line:

    Johan, there are a few Subs in Gothenburg. Check out the SVS-thread at dvdforum.nu ad you should find someone who could have the possibility to demo one for you.

    Otherwise I´m pretty sure you will be satisfied if you buy one unheard. I mean, has anyone ever heard of someone who isn´t pleased by the performance of a SVS?
