Generally, a ported Sub is better suited for movies. Sealed subs usually have that "tighter", "punchy" sound better for music but a ported sub will give you that deep "boom". The PB-1000 goes down to 19hz. Also, it depends on the size of the room that you're trying to fill so if you're trying to fill a 600+ sq. ft living room, a solo SB-12 might not adequately fill the space.
Thanks. The room is around 400sq with a low ceiling. The one thing I'm not getting from the sb12 is the "punch". I had a Klipsch sw350 that seems like it hits harder but definitely does not go anywhere near as deep. I'm wondering if I'm not setting it up right, or the ported sub is better suited for my room.

I was able to buy a PB1000 from a thrift shop for $200
It was only missing two plastic feet.
It had the original box which came with an invoice.
Previous owner bought from SVS outlet for $450 PLUS 50% off coupon in 2013 ending up $243 after NYC taxes.
I don't understand how he got the 50% off though.

Ported sub is a lot better than sealed for movies. Sealed is for music.

Right now I have dual Dayton sub 1200s in a 14x20 room.

Thoughts on replacing both of them with one pb1000?
I don't think you'll be happy going from two subs to one. Two subs give you more even dispersion.

Your room is large. I don't know "low" your ceiling is but I am assuming 7'. Then cubic feet is 2800 which requires a bigger sub than what you have and you'll need at least 2 of them
Set your receiver front speakers as small.
Crossover to 80hz
Increase subwoofer db if needed.

Subwoofer gain/volume at 12oclock
Phase at 0
Low pass filter at LFE
Make sure you are plugging RCA cable from the receiver to the sub LFE.

subwoofers are usually best at corners.
I suggest doing the subwoofer crawl if you can.

Hsu Research all day long. I have two VTF-2 MK5s and they rock. SVS makes good subs too.
Agreed! I have the VTF-15 MK2 and I'm at a loss for words on the overall performance. I'm thinking of adding a second. With that being said, SVS is a formidable sub with excellent performance, quality, and support. You can't go wrong with either one.

The other comment gives you a good start, and while the sub crawl is a pain it can also help get you a better sound.

To add to it, I would set all your speakers to small with an 80hz crossover, and once you have the speakers and sub set I'd calibrate them all to 65dB with a test tone (you can get an app, set it to C slow or LCS), and then adjust the sub by ear. Play a bass heavy song you're familiar with and adjust the sub so that it sounds good without being overwhelming.

Traditional wisdom is to stick with duals to even out response.

Did you run any room correction on it? That may help.

"Punch" is usually attributed to mid/upper bass frequencies. The reason that smaller 8" driver on that Klipsch "punched" harder is because it creeped UP into those tighter frequency ranges i.e. it was a better woofer than a "sub-woofer". If your setup is currently just a bunch of tweeters and this sub, you're missing a whole lot of range.

Contrary to imyoungxd's reply, while not optimal/conventional, but it seems that this is what you're looking for:

1. Set your crossover HIGHER than 100 hz (take it higher and higher, up to 200 hz) until you get that desired effect
2. Take it OUT of a corner. Corner placement usually muddies/amplifies the response and it will be too "boomy" - Since it sounds like it already is drowning out the mid/upper frequencies for you.

Essentially you're trying to get your sub to play those higher frequencies (which subs normally "shouldn't")

The more conventional/proper option is to get bookshelf or floorstanding speakers to properly fill those frequencies

No better way to honor a bunch of dead presidents than than to blow your brains out with some thunderous, bone rattling basssss

(In all seriousness, I have a pair of SB2000 and absolutely love them for my music setup)

Thank you very much. I have most of it already setup how you said, maybe have to try a different spot or add another.

I do have klipsch rp160's ,a rc-62 ii, and rb 15's for rear. I don't think I'm missing any range just that punch. My crossover is at 80hz for all speakers. Maybe I'm just not used to having "good" subwoofer and was hearing mid bass that actually shouldn't be there.
