    I am listning to "smack my bitch" up from Prodigy and every time the bass hits the tv picture pulsates! Not the external screen but the actual picture slightly is pulsating. Not terribly but I see it. I have a toshiba 32a40. I dont know whether to be upset with the tv or smile at the svs. [​IMG]

    RobP, maybe your floor isn't very stiff and needs reinforcing.

    If you don't solve the problem, I'm sure someone here would be willing to "store" them for you.

    Rob,
    If this is a problem that occurs with other material with high-energy bass, you may want to investigate the power feeds which supply the sub and the tv. If they happen to be on the same circuit then it's likely that the excessive current draw during a high-energy bass section might be causing a 'mini-brownout'. This most certainly could affect the picture in the tv, as could magnetic interference if the sub is placed too close to the set.
    If both the sub and the tv are on the same power circuit, then try moving one of them to a different feed or even better, obtain a line conditioner/UPS for your gear. This will help protect your equipment from other electrical nasties as well.
    But most importantly, keep exercising that sub!! I can't wait for the day that I can afford to get myself one of these bad boys. It makes me jealous every time I see SVS mentioned. [​IMG]

    Unfortunatly, I have no space to move the sub further from the tv. I'll give another circuit a try or maybe i'll try a line conditioner. Thanks for the feedback.
