Can a sub really change your home theater life? Is it really worth it for me to spend my money on a new sub if I have older components? Will it really make a difference? Yesterday my cable man came over. He seemed to be a somewhat knowledgable cable guy. He mentioned to me that he was looking to upgrade his system, and thats when the show began. I popped in Matrix because I love the opening scene with trinity. When she jumps up that sub becomes a low rider. But something was wrong I was not feeling it. Then I put Swordfish in and listened to the explosion scene in the beginning of the movie and nothing. It sounded clean, detailed, but no bass. I came to find out that one of the spades got disconnected. Once I got it reconnected I tried The Matrix again. It is an experience that you will never trade in again. There is no subsitute for having a stupendous sounding sub such as my SVS 16-46+. I did have a sub before, it was the one that came with my 5.1 system thats 10years old. I have heard other subs such as the Klipsh, M&K 500, Definitive, and Polk. But for the price I believe SVS gets the top honors. If there are any skeptics out there you need not be. This is one investment you will never regret. I popped in Swordfish again and said to myself I will never watch a movie at home without my SVS. Do whatever you have to do to get one you will not regret it. Everytime I watch a movie it is a whole new experience. I can not emphasize the happiness you will recieve from this sub. It really moved me to write this review. I have had my SVS for about 3 or 4 months now. It is amazing, mated with my 950/770 combo it is just bliss. Now thats just the sub, which by the way is really big and beautiful. Now, I have had these moments 3, or 4, times since I had my sub where the thing just does not sound right or just does not work right. How would you like to get help from the person that made the thing? Not talking to some dumb operator or techie that can not understand your problem or does not know how to help you. Everytime I had a problem I got a response immediately. They are never to busy, always gracious, and never make you feel like your bothering them, although I do all the time. And the problems I had were always my own mistakes, never a malfunction of the sub. The customer service is top notched and I would definately buy another sub in a heartbeat. I really feel you will love the improvement this sub will make in your hometheater. Movies like U571, were actually hard on the body to feel at reference level. I really felt as though my living room was shaking apart. I felt if I kept it up I would implode my building. I have a small apartment and I live on the third floor. I am sure my neigbors hate me. I know there have been countless reviews and I am probably saying stuff you heard before. But when you get a SVS and listen to your movies I am sure you will be nothing less than moved to post your review. Thanks SVS for changing my home theater life.
