    Call me crazy or just down right insane but just ordered my "Second" PB12-Plus/2 SVS subwoofer. I'll soon have matching twins.

    You guys are smart.

    Doubling your woofer area will allow you halve your cone excursion -- that means your woofer cones will follow transient waveforms more easily.

    Also, you can lower the tune of the enclosures and still maintain SPL. I run my four Ultras in 12Hz tune and enjoy a more musical blend with my mains.

    Or you can scare the **** out of unsuspecting house guests [​IMG]

    4 Ultras! how big is the room? this is what i was thinking. i could run both of them in 16hrtz and still have the spl. my friends already think it is nasty enough and are flabbergasted by the sound. i know my old lady is gonna freak at the news i want another plus2. but then again, she may be happy because i will have to buy her a piece of furniture, jewelry or something.

    That's exactly my intensions, all ports plugged, and set to 16Hz. I'm also thinking about adding the Velodyne SMS-1, room correction EQ, does anyone have any experience with the SMS-1, if so, is it recommended?

    The SMS-1 and other boxes like it, are a lot more user friendly though. [​IMG]

    It doesn't sound like rocket science with room EQ wizard. i think that is what is fun about the hobby, a little work, then you learn more. i guess one would have to ask there self if paying the extra 400- 500 bucks is worth less effort. the results would be the same in the end.
