I have the opportunity to pick up the upgrade SVS PCi/CSi driver for around $75 and was wondering if it would be worth it as a drop in driver replacement for my EBS SHIVA/PE 250W amp combo? I'm sure I could get at least $50 out of the SHIVA, possibly more. I'm all in all very happy w/ the SHIVA in my 11'x13' apartment living room, but I'm not sure how well it will fill the room when i go home to a 25'x30' bonus room this summer. Will the upgraded SVS driver be less likely to bottom out than the SHIVA when fed more power? I've also been considering an AV12 as a drop in replacement because of the bottoming out issue, but that would a few months down the road and $75 for the upgraded SVS driver seems like a pretty good deal.
