I would like to know if SVS PB10 can handle reference level. If not, why not? What good is a subwoofer if it can't reach reference level while all your other speakers are able to? If yes, is there a possibility of damaging the sub at that level? I know one poster melted his SVS when watching AVP at reference level, but that was because people have said the sound was already mastered at +10 db so he was really watching at +10 db reference level. Currently I watch about 10 to 15 db below reference level, however, during "The Incredibles" movie there have been times where the SPL was measured at 100db(especially when the ball hits the ground or big explosions). The sub did an AWESOME job at this level but I want to know if the SVS can handle that movie at reference level. I am not crazy and I am not rich so I won't try that until I know for sure it can handle it Thanks for the replies and many thanks to SVS for making the PB10. It is one kick *** sub.
