SB1000 vs SB2000

How much of a difference could I expect in using two SB2000's over two SB1000's??? My room is 13.5X16X8.
This is a dedicated music room only I listen mostly at 85-95db, speakers are big horns and I have room treatment and eq!!! I see where the SB1000 is flat at 93db and the SB2000 is flat at 100db, just wondering if I will get a noticable improvement getting two SB2000's over my current setup with two SB1000's???

Re: SB1000 vs SB2000

I wouldn't expect a noticeable difference with music. That's louder that you'll ever be driving them. You would see a bit of difference with HT however. Not a lot of very low LFE in music to make them strain.

Re: SB1000 vs SB2000

The 2000's will play a few Hz deeper, so depending upon the type of music you listen to that might prove noticable. Output shouldn't be a problem with either combo though; with the size of the room it's safe to say that neither will struggle.

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

I can't comment "vs" your current setup,(don't know what it is) but between the sb2k and the sb1k, I would expect the 12's to deliver a more accurate representation of the weight of instruments like kick drums, and bass guitars etc. They will play a little deeper than the 10's. As tonto said though, most music won't call on the extra reach, but some synthesizer stuff, and 5 string bass guitar will benefit from the headroom, and transient response of the sb2k, and the larger drivers will excite the air with more ease. If you're only listening to jazz however, you'll not likely notice a difference. Fwiw, I own an SB200(and 2PC's). It is an amazing subwoofer. Especially for the price. For a music only system in a space the size of yours, I couldn't recommend it enough. It's smooth, and powerful, and the DSP keeps it safe.i wouldn't choose the 10's.

Re: SB1000 vs SB2000

Let me clear this up just a bit, I already have two SB1000's. I was wondering if getting two SB2000's would be a big enough improvement to worth the cost and effort??? I guess I am kinda wantint to know if the SB2000's will have cleaner bass response than the SB1000's???
A little more info I listen to Rock, Jazz, and Blues for the most part, I have big horns speakers and listen at between 85-95db... The subs handle from 80hz down the mains from 80hz up...

I would say, yes. I feel like they will be more linear overall. What's your preference for music?
I would email Sonnie,or Ed @svs.

Sorry, the last part of your post didn't show up. Again, I would say the transient response, and overall performance would be worth it. My little sb2k is IMO head and shoulders above the sb1k. If we're talking about HT only, I'd have a different story. Lol

Re: SB1000 vs SB2000

This is for music only no HT involved!!! Other than the obvious output advantage what do you think is that much better than the SB1000???

Re: SB1000 vs SB2000

If your 1000's still qualify for the SVS trade up program it might be a worthwhile upgrade, but if you would have to buy the 2000's new -- and then sell the 1000's -- it could prove to be an awful lot of expense and effort for the gain.
