Well, the SVS finally arrived this afternoon. I quickly hooked it up and did some tweaking with Video Essentials and my RS SPL meter. So far I'm pretty happy with the unit. Still need to tweak some more. Problem is, I'm not exactly sure how much this thing can put out. I've got my Denon 3802's subwoofer level set to -6dB (-12 0 +12 scale) but the Gain on the SVS is less then half. If I put it at 12o'clock with the -6dB Denon level setting, I go way over the 80dB mark on the SPL meter using Video Essentials. Has anyone heard one of these woofers make the "clack" sound when reaching the limits of excursion? How loud is the sound? Is it quite noticeable from 12ft. away or do you have to put your ear up to the port hole or down near the bottom to hear it. Any help from other SVS owners and/or the creators of this wonderful sub would be greatly appreciated. Here are some pics: Notice on the fourth picture the lack of any visible wires. I ran the power cord and rca along the bottom of the baseboard towards the wallunit pictured on the left using a plastic tube named "CordMate" available at Home Depot. Makes it look nice and tidy.
