Re: SVS SB12-Plus Subwoofer: The Mouse That Roars

Hello again, I received my very own SB-12+ subwoofer this past friday. Im in love! They look great, seem very well construced, and the service I received from SVS was top notch! After a few days of futzing around with the controls I have it blending pretty seamlessly with my Spica tc-60s. By seamlessly, I mean My tc-60s still sound like tc-60s. They now however exibit a degree of ease and "testicular fortitude" unimaginable previously. Boy can they boogie now! Great product.

Re: SVS SB12-Plus Subwoofer: The Mouse That Roars

Just wondering: Is anybody out there happily using their SB-12 Plus in a room that's bigger than 2,400 cubic feet?

sb12plus needs new home

This is the kind of review I was looking for, you've sold me. Gathering my pennies to get this baby. Room size 12x17

My problem will be placement; I don't have a free corner to put the new sub, except behind the TV in the corner, where it is very enclosed (current location). The wife thinks the sub looked ugly so she made me put it there. My current sub sounds bad, and adjusting still makes it sound hollow and boomy. I've included a rough room layout and where I want to place the SVS. I was going to place along a wall to the side of the TV, but all recommendation say that?s not the way to go. I don't want to hide this sub and loose the sound I?m paying for, can I use the sub and receiver adjustments to make it work along in this location?

Re: SVS SB12-Plus Subwoofer: The Mouse That Roars

I currently own a Sunfire True Subwoofer Mk IV. It sounds great but the non-defeatable auto-on drives me crazy with music and TV without lots of bass. The comparator circuit is after the gain control so the only way to work around the problem is to have the subwoofer set too loud or listen at levels that are too loud. It takes over a second of fairly high level signal to turn on and sputters on and off if the signal isn't sustained that long (it always worked this way).

My point is, will this SVS SB-12 work as well in a relatively small room (20x12x7 feet) as the Sunfire and will it have similar distortion levels at around 80 to 90 db? If it will sound similar I would gladly sell my Sunfire and buy this sub to avoid the annoyance of the auto-on feature despite giving up about 6 db of ultimate loudness.

Has anyone tested the two side by side (or the EQ which sounds essentially the same)? I don't want to spend $1500 versus $700 for output I won't care about just to get rid of the auto-on problem.

I've never compared the Sunfire with the SB12, but I can tell you that the SB12 will have no problem giving you the clean output levels you are looking for and more.

I think your best bet is behind the TV, that will help with corner reinforcement. You shouldn't lose the sound, but gain some reinforcement.
If you insist on placing it beside the TV, it might work as well but I think you'll lose some loudness and depth. Anyway, you will need to make some measurements to decide what the best results are.
