    PB2-Plus to be specific. Can't wait for this monster to arrive. Thanks to this forum for all the info I needed to make a sound (no pun intended) decision.

    Thanks Chris. I have no sub. My foray into HT was only last year with my Polk Audio speakers and Outlaw 950/770 combo. Can't wait, can't wait!!!

    Sony 51" Widescreen, don't remember the model off hand. Bought it back in 2001. It's not bad. Got an email today that my sub just got shipped from Ohio. Knock on wood I am hoping it should be here by Thursday.

    With the Outlaw 950/770 combo and that monster you are going to be having a really hard time getting the smile off your face.

    Some demo stuff:

    Titan AE (the Ice Field)
    Opening to Toy Story II
    Master and Commander

    Music wise check out the DVD of the Eagles Hell Freezes Over

    Just received it this afternoon. SVS, excellent packaging job!!!

    I had a buddy help me carry and situate this behemoth up at my loft. The sub's finish is prettier than I thought it would be as I was expecting a rougher industrial texture.

    I turned it on but have not calibrated it as I have yet to purchase a 16-foot subwoofer cable. I will keep you guys updated.

    Don't spend too much money on that cable. Get one at the Rat Shack (with gold plated RCA jacks...for longevity); it'll be cheaper than certain monstrously :wink: priced cables sold at CC and BB stores and will last just as long or even longer.
    Can get one from CableWholesale.com too; they carry bitching stuff--all first class construction--at incredibly low prices (like $9/$10 for three foot long Toslink optical cables equipped with metal gold plated connectors!). Their cables look great too. [​IMG]

    Congrats on your BP2 Plus sub purchase. Have fun with your new toy!...

    I have had my SVS PB2+ now for over 6 months.. Was on the pre order list. I could not be happier. Love this sub especially for HT.. The thing can shake the whole house if I need it too. It took the place of dual NHT's which were good sized subs but it just knocked their socks off.

    Went to Radio Shack and picked up a 12-foot cable but it was just short of what I wanted. Went to CC instead and picked up the THX 16-foot one, only $5 more than the Radio Shack one.

    Some minor adjustments on the pre-pro (-5db for the sub), using two ports blocked at 25Hz and a gain of 1/4.

    Popped in the famous Finding Nemo Darla tapping scene, the LOTR sonic wave scene, a couple of Matrix scenes and all I have to say is [email protected], [email protected], [email protected]!!! [Happy feeling on]

    A couple of minutes later (9PM CST), my cell phone rings - I let it get to my voicemail. It's the downstairs neighbor - "Could you turn your sub down, the walls are shaking and our baby is sleeping!" [Happy feeling gone].

    WTF! And to think, I am only using a fraction of what this monster can do.

    just out of curiousity, why would you buy a sub that can shake a house when you live in an apartment? You will never be able to turn that monster up.

    I bought the loft back in 2001 and it was just a temporary thing until I save up enough money for a single-family home (SFM). Unfortunately the Chicago real estate market is pretty steep for a decent SFM, $500+. So we will probably buy early next year or if we're lucky this year. We'll see.

    Anyway, the ceilings in my building average 16+ feet, me being on the top floor 18+ feet, with a thick concrete slab and timber separating the bottom and top units. I have only one next door neighboor as I have a corner unit with brick and concrete walls. He does not complain. It's the guy downstairs from me that is rather sensitive.

    This monster is so powerful that I would not dream of turning this thing high up, unless I want everyone around me to think that there was an earthquake in Chicago. [​IMG]

    FYI - My fiancee bought the sub as an engagement gift. [​IMG]
