I gotta admit that I've had this sub for almost a month now, and it has never impressed me at all. I didn't want to say anything, because there was one guy who trashed an SVS, and he got his ass kicked on this board. Anyway, the reason it never impressed me, was because it never did any bass deeper than my old sub, which I still have hooked up to my Home Theater. I played: Toy Story 2 (not impressed) Haunting (not impressed...my old sub had the same performance as this one, except my old sub only cost me $200). Blade & Blade 2 (not impressed at all). Antz (nope...not impressed). And a ton of other titles. It wasn't until today, that I was so impressed with the SVS, I went over and hugged it! I rented "Deuces Wild" even though everyone said it sucked, and while I agree with everyone's opinions, it had the most plentiful, deepest bass, I've ever heard in my entire life. At the end where they shoot Leon the SVS was pounding so hard, it literally rattled every single one of my CDs off the rack, and they were all over the floor!!!! I was so excited! I've never had that happen with any sub, or any movie that I've played. This is the very first time that the SVS went over and beyond any expectations I had of it. Just a tiny bit of info, I have it calibrated to 75 dBs and never turn it up more than that. I always watch movies at -10 dBs from reference. I actually FELT all of the pounding the sub was giving! It was AMAZING! I just wish all the movies I watched had this much bass. Most impressively, was that the bass coming from the sub, was extremely clean, with no distortion what-so-ever. The only distortion in the room, was from my CDs falling on the floor! I only wish I had the kind of money to get the 16-46+....I have the PCi version, and my room is huge, so I can't turn it up more than 75 dBs, because it starts to bottom out (I've tried it). That's why I never turn it up, more than that. I've heard that with the 16-46+, you can play it louder, since it has more power, and it won't bottom out. Anyway, I just wanted to tell everyone my experiences.
