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.
"I turned it on but have not calibrated it as I have yet to purchase a 16-foot subwoofer cable."
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.
Congrats on your BP2 Plus sub purchase. Have fun with your new toy!...
"...hi, my name is Frank...and am an SVS bassaholic..."
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.
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.
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.
FYI - My fiancee bought the sub as an engagement gift.
