    Keep in mind I have a 8' ceiling, 7' wide, 9' long room. Heres what it kinda looks like (hopefully the picture helps). I didnt have room to put where the speakers would be, and yes the door is at the foot of my bed (where I would be listening from).

    (7ft wide)
    ___window___
    |----TV---sub-|

    I would mostly be using it for HT, with maybe a little music. I live in a sort of a townhouse place only instead of 2 people its 4. So on every corner of the building is a home, and I've already have received complaints using my HTB 505 sub [​IMG] (my new sub obviously is going to be more powerful so I just wont be able to use it to its full potential until I move out). Anyways, I'm also thinking long term, since I plan to eventually move out so my future room will probably be larger than the one I have now so I'm thinking about getting something with punch. Originally I was looking at their boxed subwoofers but then saw the cylinders which look sweet (plus they say its cheaper), though recommend any SVS subwoofer which you think suits my needs, box or cylinder. Oh and its gotta have a built in amp since I dont have one (though I do plan on getting a Denon 3803 receiver, does that have an amp for the subwoofer?). So it all comes down to the basic question, which SVS subwoofer would you recommend to me and why?

    And I'm just curious, which is more powerful, the 16-46PCi or the 25-31PC-Plus?

    If I were you and liked to make SURE I had enough, and then some, I'd grab the 2039 pc+ for HT...but the 2039pci would easily fill that room, and your neighbors[​IMG]

    Chris...its basically an SVS that was returned usually because the wife didn't like the appearance as much OR they decided to upgrade to the next level and were within the 45 day grace period[​IMG] checkout www.svsubwoofers.com and click B stock...its usuablly about 50 bucks cheaper same warranty and everything...but they go quick[​IMG] tom

    oooh baby, how much bass would that thing be? [​IMG] My home theater in a box crappy subwoofer got me a complaint, that beast would get me life! :p Is there such a thing that the sub is too powerful for your setup? This is what I'm thinking of:

    2 Connoisseur C-9
    2 C-1 bookshelf
    C-C3 centre speaker
    2 CR3 surround speakers

    They are all energy speakers, and I would get a Denon 3803 receiver (would it be good enough for that sub?)

    Well, the pc+ would be overkill if ya ask me[​IMG] you could easily get by with the pci...I'd grab the 2039 if I bought one ..more depth for HT. So, basically, if you have money to burn, pc+....or not...pci then. setup should be fine...nice receiver...man, a svs in a 500 CF room..be gentle[​IMG]

    That room is smaller than my old living room and svs recommended a 25-31pci....that is what I got but then I wanted more so I got the 25-31 PC Plus and love it. Did you email SVS yet with room dimensions and what you want out of it....[​IMG]

    ^^yeah I was thinking about that, but I'm looking into long term since I know my future room will probably be larger, though the C-9's may still be too big? What setup would you recommend, C7's?

    Hey Chad[​IMG] He was looking for that deeper bass for mostly HT...and I used to own a 2039...it would be a good combo.....and in that small of a room, hell...forget neighbors...hello police[​IMG] Still, planning for the future, I'd get the 2039 pc+ if I was you..then ya know you have enough for a move later, and you won't have to go thru selling on to buy another etc...tom
