Only you can answer that question I'm afraid - the best any of us can do is give general advise and suggestions. We would need a lot more information before anyone can really assist though. Things like budget, usage (HT, music, gaming), listening habits (loud, quiet), room size (HxWxD), current speakers, physical size and/or WAF restrictions, etc.


Ascend 340 cmts for left, center, and right
Definitive 800 rears
Definitive 60 top middles
Polk psw 505 sub

Denon x1200w
Sony 65xbr900b

Size of room LxWxH
10.5x9.5x6.5

Budget is open so just want suggestions.

The PB-1000 would easily be able to handle a room that size, so from that standpoint you would be fine. It should be able to play deeper as well - in spite of the smaller driver - but the Polk might have more mid bass and so may appear to be more powerful when the two are compared. What about the Polk are you not happy with that makes you want to change?

-Jim

If you take yourself too seriously, expect me to do the exact opposite

The Polk is pretty good for the money, and as Jim said good mid bass output, for even a medium sized room. However, below 30hz, it rolls off pretty quickly. This will leave for wanting on action movies with deep stuff.

Personally? Even if my space was that size, I'd at least go for a PC/PB2000. This will yield a better experience overall, and mostly not leave you wanting for an upgrade. At least for awhile...lol

Would the sb2000 be sufficient enough over the PB?

I assume you mean PB as in PB1000.
I did consider the sb2k. It's a fantastic little sub, and I think it would do good in that space. I'd call SVS and ask Ed since he's intimately familiar with both, and could tell you the differences with total certainty. IMO? Yes it would be better. For my own taste? I'd go with the PC2k. I just like everything a little above what's necessary. Future proofing?

SVS PB1000 and SB1000 Subwoofer Review Discussion Thread

Would it be better to have two pb1000s which would be one each side of my coach or just one pb2000?

Yeah. Multiple subs offer the potential to smooth the response at the LP. In that size room two PB1000's would be plenty. I saw budget is open but what's the actual limit?
