    Hi Folks,

    after a long journey through time, the SVS Subwoofers finally arrived at my place in Germany.

    The travel was fast and they were received in good shape.

    Have a look ...the black intruders are approaching the living room:

    ...but disappear when seated into their places:

    They have to be correctly set up though. That will be done as soon I get the AV Controller, which is on its way.


    So far, my wife found a new use to the SVS "Earplugs", MAXI size:

    Thanks Tom, Ron, and the whole team.
    Very well made gear! I enjoy it and will tell how the progress goes on when the tuning has finished.

    Regards,
    Axel

    Thats great AxelKro. Looks like your wife is a thinker. I wondered what those were for.[​IMG]

    Very nice and I hope you let us know how they sound. You waited patiently and now for the payoff. You deserve dual PB1-PLUS's.
    congratulations[​IMG]

    Thanks, Steve nn,

    yep, let me get the Controller, then I'll go on. Until then, I will let them rumble around a little, just for fun [​IMG]

    What a wise advise, Ron ;-)))
    She accepted the intruders so far without any problem.
    (I might try to switch them on now ...)

    Cheers,
    Ax

    Congrats on your new subs... you will love them. I have a PB2+ and looking at your pictures mine really is not that much bigger. Makeing me wonder if I should have done doubles as that is what I replaced but so far so good..I have a large room and this thing holds its own. I can't imagine how good yours are gonna sound. Good luck with the wife too. Mine came when she was not home.. I quickly got help and got it in and set it up by ear. We sat down that night to watch some movie that would ocassionally have a quick LFE hit. The first time she jumped up from her chair yelling : what the heck was that.... pretty funny.

    Axel,
    Your next upgrade should be a MUCH LARGER TV.

    Like with like....you know what I mean? [​IMG]

    David, I just mentioned the same thing to my wife.

    "You know how you are too much into this audio thing? When you sub is bigger than your tv!" [​IMG]

    Those look awsome. I bet the dual PB1+'s will be a tad louder than a single PB2+...... right?

    Folks,
    unfortunately, I can't make the TV too much bigger, otherwise I can't see the garden any more [​IMG]
    The TV would also block the window door to the terrasse.

    However, in theory, you are right. In the case of a future visual upgrade, I would go towards a flip down or rolldown movie screen of a decent size.
    The risk is low though, as this would definitely work against my wifes idea of the look of a living room.

    Ax

    Yes you need to be careful Axel or your wife will find another use for those port-plugs!

    Thats funny Jesse.

    @ MikeLi

    Yep, the size is very close, slightly deeper and a little higher too.
    The depth wouldn't have been a problem, the heigth was.
    I did not want to sit between Monoliths, feeling like the ape in 2001-Space Odyssey [​IMG]

    @ Steve nn

    I will carefully check the port plugs from time to time ...

    Axel,

    You are a candidate for a motorized screen. Looking at your photos I thought about what a small screen you've got, but what a great view. A screen that comes down from the ceiling only when you want to watch movies at night would be ideal for you.

    -Robb

    PS. Congrats on your new toys!

    @ Robb Roy

    The trouble I am having with motorized screens is the construction of the ceiling. It's not there [​IMG]

    Have a look:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    As you can see from the side:

    [​IMG]

    ...there is no place to mount it in a way to keep the TV.
    If I would mount the screen along the window, it would bounce on to the TV while going down.

    If I would use the wooden bar in front of the TV, I think I am too close to the screen. And the positioning of the projector would be the next nightmare.

    That's why it may take some time until I can come to a decent solution...

    Regards,
    Axel

    Hi, hmmm,
    the Plasma Floor Lift could well be THE ideal solution for my living room.

    As I have a cellar room below the living room and already a hole (but not deep enough at the moment) along the window (have a look on the pictures above, its hidden by a metal grill on the floor behind the TV rack), this idea would fit.

    No need for a projector, a nice view when hidden and a handy operation.
    I'll keep that in mind by the time when the Plasma's of a decent size will become affordable for me.

    Thanks KeithY for mentioning this option!

    Congrats on the subs. I have to say that your house is beautiful. I wouldn't want to cover up that view either. Your room reminds me of setting out in the woods on a peaceful day.

    Axel-

    How did you get black PB1+'s? I thought they were only available in 4 "natural" wood tones.
    I thought I would have to make do with the standard PB1, to get them in black.

    Very nice setup!

    thanks,

    -Miles
