So tonight was my first experience with SVS, I set up a home theater for a friend and recommended that he get a 20-39 CS+ and Samson 1000 combo. Well he did and tonight I went over to calibrate the whole system with Avia and run some 1/6 octave tests to see if he needs a BFD. Anyway, after it was all calibrated (sub set to 85dB, not running it hot at all) we played the pod race scene at reference (0 on the volume, which I understand is a bit low for Phantom)… Oh my god, is this for real? Can this sub actually put out that kind of bass? I mean words cannot describe the power this thing has. This is a fairly large room and even so, it felt like shockwaves were going through the floor. The amp was not going into clipping, the red led just flickered on at the loudest point. I never heard the sub bottom; I don’t even think we were close. So this is normal? The driver can do that safely? I guess I’m still in shock.
