I was real excited about the SVS PB12 plus 2 sub. Everything I read made me think that it was a signifigant upgrade over my M&K 350 THX. I love super low bass that fills up the room like a great movie theater. Now I'm in the final stages of designing my theater and it is coming together great. My M&K system is sounding great with my Outlaw 990/7125 combo. My sub is excellent but I think the SVS might be just a little better. Unfortunately the sub is so big that it would overlap with the screen material in the front of my room. My ceilings are very low and my room doesn't allow for much wiggle room as far as the placement of the sub. The only way I can go with the PB12 plus 2 would be to put it on it's side. I could have the drivers at the bottom face me and take the bottom plate off. This is what was reccomended by SVS Ron. The only problem with this is that the Amp would be visable and the grey drivers would be visable. I spent alot of time designing the room, I made sure that the whole front of the room was black. I could place it on the side and just leave the bottom plate on there so the drivers wouldn't be visable. I don't know if that is bad sonically. I could also have the drivers face the side wall in the front of the room so the drivers and the amp wouldn't be visable. Again, I don't know if this presents any sonic problems. I know alot of SVS buyers are on this board. Does anyone else have a similar problem? Does anyone know if facing the drivers forward with the bottom plate on would creat any acoustical problems? How about facing the drivers toward the side wall in the front of the room? Facing the drivers toward the side wall would be the best scenario because the drivers and the amp wouldn't be visable. At this point I was actually thinking of just sticking with the M&K.
