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

I'd like to see how the Dayton HSU12 compares to the SVS's. Given how well other HSU designs perform, I'd guess it would compare very favorably.

Go to the subwoofer tests forum, you'll find a great job done by Ilkka.

There definitely a lot of subs tested there, but I didn't see anything posted for the Dayton HSU12.

I want one!!! Maybe two. Oh, wait, the dishwasher crapped out on me. Rats. And so did the heater/A/C blower in my truck (try driving around in a snowstorm with no defrost!!!). There goes all my subwoofer money.

Re: sb12plus to face which direction?

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.
Looking at the diagram above, my room is very similar. I like to place it behind the TV + cabinet too but where the sub's front (speakers grill) should face? If it faces to back of the TV+cabinet would that be a problem? Shoud it face to the corner of the room behind the TV?

Or does it make any difference at all?

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

Would have been interesting to compare a pair the the single SB12.

The only thing that would change when going from one to two would an increase in output of 6db if the two are colocated. The frequency response would stay the same. The distortion characteristics would stay the same, but would occur when the volume is 6db higher than for one sub. Therefor you can mathmatically calculate the test results with a pair.

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

I am aware of that and agree, however 6 dB is huge, 4 times the power, ought to be a much more impressive listening experience. Hearing is not linear, equal level loudness contours and all ....

Multiple subs also have advantage as far as room mode exitation goes.

The room mode excitation advantage is true if you separate the subs, but of course the results will vary from room to room. Also when you separate the subs, you won't be likely to get the full 6db bump in output. It would be somewhere betwee 3-6 db.

Believe me, I know what you're talking about. I run a stereo pair of SB12's myself.

Wouldn't the distortion be lower because you are asking each sub to do slightly less? Each sub would have to play about 3db less volume; correct? Then distortion levels are likely to be lower as a result...
