Will the SVS PC 16-46 be too much for Def Tech ProCinema 200s? Thanks : > Debra
i asked an identical question. i had paradigm cinema cc70s, and was wondering about pairing it with the middle svs sub. one of the reply told me that since the cinemas are so small ( 3.5 inch woofer ), then a sub is REALLY necessary. with a proper calibration everything should sound nice. BUT, now i upgraded the satellites instead of upgrading the sub, since i live in apartment. i think upgrading the satellites would be better compared to upgrading the subwoofer ( to me ).
Thanks Felix : . I just hope i can get the Sub at a volume where it won't drown out the speaker's. What's the lowest volume ( DB's)for the SVS PC 16-46 ? Debra
Lowest volume = zero. The 'power' of SV subs tend to make people think they will blow away the mains. Not true. They are mild mannered when the material is, and brute when the material calls for it. In fact, the output is not the biggest plus an SVS has to offer. It is the smooth, even, predictable response you get from one. The power is a bonus, but never out of control unless you make it that way. I had SuperZeros (4.5" woofer) and SuperOnes (6.5) both as mains with the SVS 20-39 and it was great both ways. Calibration is the key, always. - C
Colin's right. You can't have to much sub, only too much volume. Also, keep in mind that the 16-46, although large, is not louder than the others. It just goes lower. If you want to feel all the bass a soundtrack has to offer, and your not concerned about hitting insane dB levels, the 16-46 is the way to go.
ColinM/Keith Thanks so much :> Debra
Keith, I'll second that. I have the 1646PC. Calibrate, calibrate, calibrate. Goes much lower, & MUCH less peaky than my old Velo.
