Is it worth Upgrading from my PB12-NSD to the PB2000? It will cost me an additional $230. Will I see a $230 return of Bass plus the hassle of reboxing & transporting the Sub to FedEx,which is no small feat! Open to any advice but would especially like to hear from those who have actually made the trade. Thanks!!

I upgraded mine. I will give you the good with the bad.
Good:
Warranty starts over.
A better amp.
I like how the driver and port are switched in the location. I did notice some port noise from my PB-NSD when turned way up. None with the PB2000.

Bad:
$230
The PB2000 has a little light on the front that is a little bit distracting to me. I fixed mine with some black electrical tape. I just used a hole punch to cut out a round circle to place over it. I can still see the faint light glowing from behind the tape. Not through it but behind, if that makes sense.

I will add that while I had both subs, I had a chance to hook both of them up in my room. Boy was I amazed at the difference two subs made. It seemed as if every seat in the room was the sweet spot. Two subs really are better than one.

Personally if your just switching them I don't really think there is much difference. Like said above maybe a little more output but I don't think it's worth the cost and hassle.

I don't think the light will bother me,if it does then I'll tape it. I keep my grill on 100% of the time anyway. So far,no port noise but I don't crank mine up that loud. What I would like to do is have 2 subs but that's not in my budget. I would Love to have the never ending sweet spot! I did read that the PB2000 goes a little deeper & louder but is it worth the extra $230? Knowing what you know now would you still make the switch? Thanks!

I starting to lean toward your way of thinking unless someone can tell me Flat Out it's a night & day difference in Bass & the $230 was well spent!
