    Add me to the list of SVS owners. My dual 20-39CS's and Samson amp finally arrived today. The UPS guy only brought the amp and one sub up to the door and I asked him about the other sub and he said it wasn't on his truck, boy was I fuming. Anyway, I said good-by and 30 seconds later he rings the bell and did have the other sub, whew!! Spent the last 2 hours setting up, calibrating and listening. I have some more adjusting to do, but everything you other owners said is true. I have both in the same corner and hope my wife will allow me to keep them there instead of one in each front corner of our family room/HT. Anyway, the first puzzle of my upgrade is now in place and once that is paid for I can start saving for the other pieces. Thanks to Ron and Tom for all their help. These are awesome!!

    Mike,
    I see you've bought in to all this SVS hype.
    I hope your loving them as much as I love mine. I only bought one 20-39PC and it was like a whole new world of bass opened up compared to my two old subs put together.
    Welcome to the club!

    Sorry,
    "I'm keeping the other for myself" (said the UPS man).
    Psych!
    That's a good one Mike. We've had some really odd stuff happen to our a few of our sub shipments (there's ALWAYS that 2% is seems), but just flat-out losing one hasn't happened -- yet.
    Keep us posted via e-mail or whatever as you dial things in (don't be afraid to calibrate them higher than other subs you've used, they LOVE to be pushed... to a point!)
    Tell your wife even the manufacturer told you to keep them in the same corner. Let us know if you need more ammo on that front.
    All the best and welcome to the SVS family!
    Ron

    Ron,
    Thanks for the support. My wife is definitely not that happy where the subs are and today she was talking about taking down the wall between two bedrooms to create a HT. This won't happen for awhile though, but at least it's a possibility. I did have a slight hum which a cheater plug took care of and I calibrated the sub level a little higher than the manual suggests and the results are awesome. We watched the beginning of Toy Story 2 and my wife, ever the skeptic, said it was louder and she could "feel" the sound, and eventhough whe would never admit it I think she was impressed. Anyway, if there is anyone debating on purchasing these subs don't hesitate and you have tons of support on this and other forums of satisfied customers. Now on to enjoy my HT with my new subs.
    Mike

    My wife would threaten bodily harm if I even suggested I might want to sell my SVS! I have two, and I may only need one, but the mere mention of going down to one SVS earned me threatening glares and slaps. [​IMG]
    I never knew my wife appreciated bass until we went over to Greg's house in Mechanicsville and his 25-31 shook up the room. She was hooked after that.
    Help! I'm stuck with my SVS! Wife won't let me get rid of it! Woe is me.... woe is me! [​IMG] If I went even down to one, I'd be in the dog-house for sure!
    John

    Perhaps women are starting to discover they enjoy the bass from SV Subs for the same reason many like "riding" Harley's...just a thought

    Maybe they just read that thread about low frequencies having a healing affect and increasing bone density! There's not a woman alive that isn't concerned about osteoperosis!
