Very nice and clean lines. Not sure I am sold on the removal of the base plate but the only way to find out is a home Demo!
I think the baseplate going away is interesting too. We'll see. Like you said. Home demo is the only way to know for sure. I'd love to see what would happen if I set a pair of these together with my plus's. :wink:

What does the Bass plate do?

There are two options for installing the Isolation System on SVS cylinder subwoofers - base
plate retained or base plate removed. Retaining the base plate is recommended in
applications which have very high pile carpeting, in order to avoid woofer interference at
high playback levels. Aside from that exception, there is no performance difference
between the two options, so choose whichever option you personally prefer
Sounds like if the woofer is not hitting the ground or has enough clearance everything should be the same.

Someone else might chime in on this with a different answer, but a baseplate simply adds more stability to a sub. Less likely to tip (if you're a cylinder) and less likely to walk via vibrations. Looks to me like SVS feels they have an equal replacement. A designer could speak more intelligently about this, but I believe base width and overall weight come into play.

Based on experience with my old 16-46PC+ I expect that with the bass plate it would be easier to move around, at least on carpet.

Btw, I'm a fan of the cylinder design.

I personally dont like look of cylinder subs but if that is what you have room for they are an excellent option. I have a friend who has an older cylinder sub from SVS and it does sound good.

I have got the PC2000 and I just love it. It replaced two PB12-NSD DSPs and in my room the one PC2k Equals or betters the two PBs in every way. I never got the PBs to play flat lower than 18hz but the PC2k is flat to 15hz, the same as the two PC12-NSDs I had a while back. Looking forward to getting a second one.
