    Well, the wife hated the tube so I just ordered the box sub. Hopefully it will come soon. The only thing I am nervous about is the fact that I think I want the plus driver and more power. I will know soon enough.

    Hey, I have been watching the website all evening and just had to refresh a couple times to get the option to purchase. I was going to get the 20-39 PC+, but space, cost and aesthetics were issues.

    I just ordered and now the wait begins. I usually don't like to be the first (or last) to try a product, but based on the SVS reputation, I went for it.

    I wonder though if anyone out there has compared the box to the comparable (25-31pci) cylinder? Should I expect any difference if I were to listen to the two?

    I got the PB1-ISD. I'm building a new system, and I'm adding it to Paradigm Studio 40s and Outlaw 1050.

    The B4 remains the stuff of dreams.

    Alan and Josh,

    Congrats on the new SVS's, I'm very interested in how you think it sounds in comparison to the tubes.

    BTW, Alan, what kind of MD?

    I ordered the p series. I just can't justify spending $2400 on a sub when I don't have a dedicated room for a theater with a front projector and 12 seats. Just my opinion- plus my room does not require it now. I will let you know how it compares to the 20-39 PCi when I receive it.

    I've had two of the original 20-39CS subs (before the ISD driver came out) for about two and half years. Since hearing of the B4, I've been drooling. I've got the dough for this monster, but I'm afraid my "smallish" room would conflict horribly with both the physical size and output of the B4. My room is about 12'x 8'x 14' (WHD). Like any of you good people, I love s**t loads of good bass. But would the B4 honestly be a bad decision for my theater room?

    I'm an internist. Hopefully that will continue because I just got a certified letter telling me my malpractice insurance was being "processed for non-renewal." The insurer is pulling out of Illinois. I have never had a claim. I'm SOL if I can't find a company still willing to offer new policies, because insurance is required by law to practice.

    My monthly malpractice payment was the same as the cost of a new B4 sub.

    Hey Alan.. Be thankful you have a job as there are millions of unemployed workers in various occupational sectors across the country who are not able to even provide food and shelter for their families.

    However, I wish you much luck in finding a company who will provide the needed insurance for your practice. Your skills are needed to heal the ill.

    WOW! I'm really excited! Can't wait for my new PB1-ISD. I'm gonna "Rock da howse....buoy"!

    I was originally looking at Hsu (as many fellow HTFr's helped me with) and Velodyne products because I wasn't aware SVS was going to introduce a box sub. I am thankful I found out before I bought something other than an SVS. I realize I'm one of the first to buy the PB1-ISD without hearing it, but since I currently own a 16-46 PCi, which I am extremely pleased with, I have the confidence SVS will give me only the best product available in it's class.

    Alan M_D: Ping me offline and I'll try to help you with your problem. I have recently sold my insurance agency of many years and was known to always offer suggestions to my clients when I couldn't write them through my agency here in Texas. Don't know if I'll be successful...but I'll try.

    Actually, no lecture was intended. If my comment was perceived in that manner, then I apologize.

    I do not begrudge you in any way. I know how difficult med school is as I have many friends who are involved in your field and struggle with the same insurance situation.

    No animosity in the least for anything that comes your way in life. I only wish you the best that life has to offer.

    My post was to just provide a point of reference. No more, no less.

    Finally joining the "SVS club" as I just ordered a PB1-ISD sub. This should settle the problem of the other half NOT wanting "a big ugly tube" (as she put it) in the family room.
    Can't wait to try it out, upgrading from a Sony WM-40.

    Remember
    NOTE: Pre-orders only. SVS expects to begin shipping during the second week of February 2003 for the PB1-ISD.

    I myself am debating between the PB1-ISD and 25-31pci..
    not sure and will decide hopefully in the next week.
    I question things like will the box style sound any different then the cylinder? HMMMM....

    Alan,

    I understand the concern, I'm an I.M. PA-C in Washington State and we are down to basically one malpractice provider in the state. They took a major hit last year, (didn't they all?). Fortunately they had more than sufficient reserves for one year and though our renewal had only a minimal increase, all of us are sweating it about next year.

    If Pres. Bush's proposal on tort reform doesn't fly we are all going to be finding new jobs, I'm afraid.

    On a brighter topic, I look forward to everyones thoughts on the new box SVS's.

    Bill

    I am sure that there will be some difference between the box and the tube as the tube is perfect for bass however the question is how much? I also wonder how nice the 20-39pc+ and the new box would play together?

    Good luck Chad. My 25-31 was bigger than I expected when I finally unboxed it, even being fully aware of the dimensions and all. I initially had thought I went too far purchasing such a huge sub and considered returning it. But now I've gotten used to it and it actually blends it quite well with the furniture in the room. Best of luck with the GAF!
