Re: Worth the extra money

Ported will always be much larger than its counterpart and in almost all cases have higher output. If your looking for a small footprint sealed is best but you sacrifice some output.

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: Worth the extra money

The price difference is significant.
Since SVS has very friendly shipping, I would try the SB2000 first.
If you find the SB2000 lacking (doubtful but possible) really listen to the system and try to determine if the deficiency is lack of volume or if there is something else that is not right.

I agree. The price difference is polar. I have experience with the plus and the Sb2k, and while I agree that the free shipping and in home would be easy. But I found the sb2k should be used in pairs, or in a smaller space than his. I still don't know about his ceiling height or other connected spaces. I feel the Plus, or PB2k(I lean toward the cylinder versions) is where to begin since they're less cost than the ultra, but offer much more than the little SB. Future proofing? That's my .02.
I still wonder if he called SVS yet, and what the total cuft is.

Re: Worth the extra money

Just called SVS last Friday. The person I talked to was very helpful. He wanted to know my room size which is 15x 17 with 8 foot ceilings. Basic living room with carpet and furniture. Next, he wanted to know about my system which is a Yamaha RX-V3800, Paradigm Monitor 11s fronts, Monitor C3 center, Yamaha NS-IWC560C surrounds, and a Yamaha NS-YST100 Sub (my weakest link). Then, it was listening habits. It was 60% music and 40% movies, somewhat above theater level volume. He recommended the PB or PC 2000. The wife and I decided on the PC2000 because it would take up less space. It was a great idea on calling SVS for their opinion will be purchasing soon. Will post later on any setup issues. Thanks!

+1
I think you'll be very happy. I love the cylinders personally, and I think they can blend into any decor.
Congrats!
