    I'm looking to stick a subsonic filter on my SVS to get rid of all the stuff that overloads my woofer. I'm looking for it to cut off in and around 15 Hz, maybe a little lower. I don't need a full EQ or amp, so does anybody know where I could get a relatively inexpensive stand alone subsonic filter? BTW, I know about the black box from SVS, but I'd rather not get that, since I don't need any of it's other features.

    A 20 Hz high pass filter from PartsExpress might be the ticket. Just what sort of program material are you playing that has sufficient energy around 15 Hz?

    If you are handy with a soldering iron, pick up a PCB for one of Rod Elliot's Subsonic Filters.

    That PCB requires an additional power supply to supply the op amps with -/+15V. I would go with the F-mod

    Chu,
    To answer your question, nearly every action movie released in the last 4 years has material at 15 Hz and under. Also, the tuning point of my sub is 16 Hz, so I'd just like to cut out everthing below it, to avoid bottoming the driver with some of the extremely deep bass in some movies.
