Is the room enclosed?

That's a large space.

Obviously you'd want to bounce this off the experts at SVS, but I *think* you might be better off going with the dual subs. Your response will be more even across the room (assuming you place them appropriately). Check with SVS and report back... I'd be interested in hearing their response...
Yes the room is enclosed. I will ask them and see what they think about it. Originally I was thinking that I could buy one and then sometime in the future buy another one to help spread the cost but I see that if you buy two at the same time they give you a $100 discount. Decisions decisions..

I got the PB12NSD less than a year ago. I wonder if it would be worth it to take them up on their trade up policy. What do you guys think? I am very happy with my sub.

As long as you are within one year of your purchase then you have the option to upgrade to the PB-2000. You get a 5% returning customer discount on the new sub (PB-2000) purchase and you will have to pay shipping on PB-12 NSD. I did that recently and very happy with my new dual PB-2000s in exchange of six months old dual PB-12 NSDs. You can actually audition PB-2000 at your home and compare it with PB-12 NSD side by side before you decide which ones to keep but I am pretty confident that you will like PB-2000 over PB-12 NSD

Feel free to email me if any specific questions.

I went ahead and ordered the new PB-2000. I have the Pb12-NSD right now and totally love it but the new PB-2000 looks to be all around better. Wow! I cant wait to get the new one. I will post my thoughts when I get the new one broken it a bit.

Just call SVS.

They set it all up for me through FedEx. It cost me $100 to switch mine with shipping. I am just excited for 1100 watts vs 800 watts. yum yum..

btw they were awesome to deal with.. Thanks SVS

I had duals so it cost me $100 to return duals PB12-NSDs and $100 to cover shipment on the new dual PB-2000s. Total of $200 but ended up with new and improved PB-2000 models. I am pretty happy with the exchange.

I though I would post my initial impressions of the PB2000 vs the PB-12NSD. I must say that I have loved the PD-12NSD and would never have upgraded to the PB2000 had they not offered me an upgrade option. Trusting SVS I expect the newer sub to be even that much better than my older one.

Here is a shot of them side by side. New vs old. Notice how they have changed the port and driver location. They are both the exact same size.

One new feature that I have noticed on the PB2000 is the location of the light. It is now on the front and personally I do not like it here. While Watching movies in my theater, the light glares bright blue at you. I plan on covering it up with some electrical tape. The PB-12NSD light is on the back and never noticed until it flashes at its limit.

Here is a shot of finish. I kind of like the finish on the PD12-NSD a little bit better but they are both so close.

This I a sot of the front covers. Notice how the PB2000 is curved a little bit more. I did notice that when I was pushing the PB-12NSD there was some port noise caused by the cover.
The logo was changed a little bit as well. Also the pins used to mount it to the sub are bigger.

Here is a shot of the amps. They are a little bit different. Again I like the light on the back of the sub vs the front.

I had a chance to hook both subs up to my system. One in each front corner. I did not have a chance to the PB2000 calibrated but it did turn it up to about the same level as my old sub. Playing Star Wars attack of the clones, I did notice how much smoother the bass seemed to fill the room. I did notice that the bass in the room is better with two subs. I will have to get a second PB2000 when I get the money for one.

I did not have a chance to break the new sub in yet and I plan on giving an up date as to how the new sub compares to my old when I get a chance.
