    Would an SVS sub be to much bass in an 11' x 14' room? If this would be too much what would be better off in my room? I already have 2 cerwin vega ls-12's. Also my reciever(pioneer vsx-d606s) has a pre out so I would be able to hook an amp and sub to it. Right? Or do i not even need an external amp to drive one? I also have an early 80's onkyo stereo reciever(model tx-5000) which is sitting around. Could this be used to power the sub? How cheap could I go for an amp to power one of the sv subs?

    I have noticed that the pc version has a built in amp but it is 4 ohms. My reciever is set at 8 ohms because all of my speakers are 8 ohms. Will this sub work with my reciever?

    Your receivers sub pre-out has nothing to do with ohms being driven on the amp section of your receiver. Get the PCi, it's their best deal right now!

    My 16-46PCi is in a room 11x11 with a 6.5 foot ceiling. It's not too much bass for me.

    Three things a better sub gives you: more headroom, lower extension, more accuracy. In a small room, you may not need/use the headroom. However, you can never have too much low extension for HT, and you can never have too much accuracy for music.
