    On April 11, 2002, I received my first SVS 25-31PCi (SN 00034) and was completely blown away with the performance vs. powered-subs that cost $600 to $1,500.00! My criteria was 80% HT / 20% Music - Tom V. recommended the SVS 25-31PCi and I'm glad he did!!!

    One of my original subjective comments (4-12-02) after I REF Calibrated my HT setup was


    I honestly can say the 'lows' have improved in impact and resolution - so yes, I am 100%+ satisfied with the $129 +SH upgrade cost!!!

    Many have wondered why I had this grin [​IMG] when I get a chance to DEMO my HT - Now that I can play back Dolby Digital Plus & TrueHD 5.1 (The Phantom of the Opera HD DVD), the upgrade lets me hear & feel the impressive full lower frequency lossless soundtrack vs. the ISD design limitations!!! This new NSD woofer just enhances that grin [​IMG] - to its now permanent (Joker) state!!! [​IMG]

    So, if you own one of the original ISD equipped ...

    ... PCi powered-subs,

    ... Cylinder Series (CS, passive subs)

    ... PB12-ISD

    ... PB12-ISD/V

    ... PB12-ISD/2 ...

    I highly recommend the NEW NSD 12" woofer upgrade(s) for the very reasonable cost $129 + SH, ... because the audible & tactile sub-sonic performance is outstanding.

    Nice write up Phil...I'm late to the party too. Should have me 12.3 on Weds. I'm looking forward to a nice upgrade too. Maybe, JG and I will come up with something to do with the 12.2 as well.

    Nice job Phil..I enjoyed reading your review in it's entirety. From day one you've been very impressed with the 25-31PCi (me to)and it's truly held your attention. It's nice to see that you made the decision to upgrade to the NSD though, also considering you deserve a upgrade imo, and a upgrade it is.
    Yip!

    Congrats![​IMG]

    Ne post, Phil. I have two questions:

    1) your photo is of a JBL S-38 mid and high, no? I have three pair doing yoeman's duty in all five locations of my 5.1 setup. how sweet it is...

    2) does this mean there are some 12" ISD drivers laying around needing a home??

    I think I got it thru one of the Yahoo Shopping Vendor(s) or eBay - WOOD TECHNOLOGY CC-12E 12" CENTER CH STAND FREE SHIP ... I checked the vendor's rating and choose the best price including SH. My total price was around $37 shipped.

    These Center Channel Stands are not adjustable, they do come in different heights which is part of the model number. I bought the 12" high CC Stand model CC-12. Other heights are CC-18 and CC-28.

    Hope this helps,
    Phil
