Re: Receiver Recommendation / Preference

Wow. How'd I miss that? That room definitely needs to be closed off. The pb2k is a nice subwoofer but like tony said, that's just too much airspace. A long time ago, I had my pc12 plus in 6700cuft. Even in that space it did an admirable job, but I always felt a little nervous about the driver barfing out of it. I built a second one to match and what a difference. They are behind and in the rear corners about 9' away from the LP. The third is up front about 15' away. If you can close the back of the room, that pb2k should do a great job(although we'll all tell you to start saving for a second one lol), and I would recommend taking the time to place it, and measure its in room response. Having mine in the back was a great choice, and I wouldn't rule it out for you.

Re: Receiver Recommendation / Preference

Yep so I am going to demo the pb2000 and see what i think. I found a good local deal on a Rythmik FV15HP Direct for about $950 (1 year old). You guys think that could handle the room size if the pb2000 doesn't work out? This is assuming I didn't close it off.

Re: Receiver Recommendation / Preference

The Rythmik is a larger sub and would have more db output so for the $950 its kind of hard to pass up on.

Home theater:
Onkyo 805, Yamaha YDP2006EQ, Samson Servo 600 amp
3 EV Sentry 500 monitors across the front, 4 Mission 762i's Surrounds, SVS PB13U sub, Panasonic BDT220, Harmony 1100, Nintendo WiiU
Panasonic PT-AE8000 on a 120" 2,35:1 fixed screen

Living room system:
Sherwood/Newcastle R972, Mission 765's, SVS SBS02's, A/D/S MS3u sub, Yamaha YDG2030EQ
Yamaha KX-393 Tape deck, CDC 805 CD changer, Panasonic BD60, Sony turntable PS-T20
Panasonic TC-P50ST60, HD-PVR & WDTV Live, Harmony 900

Re: Receiver Recommendation / Preference

The rhythmik will definitely have more output than the pb2k but I would still try to close it off. That would be likely more affordable than buying a second sub and from my experience with a huge space, having the extra headroom from not trying to pressurize all that air will yield a better experience. I'm definitely for multiple subs, but I feel like you're going to be doing one at a time. I'd buy the rhythmik. In fact, I'm going to buy 2(with an eye on 2 more) when my wallet fattens up enough. I've had nice talks with Jman about this and I think that's the way to go.

Re: Receiver Recommendation / Preference

So after receiving and demoing the pb2000, I decided to go with the Rythmik FV15HP (as you guys advised)! I am planning to close off the room eventually as well but i think the Rythmik will get me close to the experience I want even without that.

Note the PB2000 sounded much better than the PB1000 and likely would of been good to great with the room closed off, but I think I'll be happy with my choice to upgrade.

Re: Receiver Recommendation / Preference

Ok got the Rythmik today and 100% satisfied. This thing sounds awesome and really fills the room. The bass is extremely tight and not boomy like other subs i have tested. Really sounds like a theater experience. This thing is GREAT! Highly recommend it and tested Velodyne/SVS as well.

Next up is a possible bookshelf upgrade. May go with the ultra bookshelf's (and no center) for a while. I have heard they do really well without it, but won't know till i test. I removed the center from my current setup with primes and it did not sounds nearly as good. So I definitely have my doubts, we will see how the demo goes if i go that direction.

Thanks,

Kevin
