2 subs better one
« on: January 26, 2015, 10:49 »
Hi Guys,

  Currently I am using single SVS PB 1000 currently located at front right. . I can get 17Hz in room response measure using calibrated mic. Will addint a second SVS PB 1000 brings major improvement in the bass quality, response and quantity ?
  Thanks.

To give a better reference, why not post a screen shot of your in-room measured frequency response chart?

This way, the discussion would be more effective.

For sure, adding a second sub is going to improve quantity, quality. It's just a matter of hiw much an improvement we can get.

Some brother goes for 2x12" subw or 1x15" or twin 10"driver sub.
Surely SPL will spread evenly and improve well when using 2 subw...
(how about use 2 x twin 10"driver sub  ;D)

but my own brother doesn't like too much bass...

bought another pb1000..position front left and right 1/4 length front wall from sides in a dedicated room..the 2nd sub smooth up the FR even before eq...then i set both subs volume to 12 clock..phase is 0...input to LFE only (aka disable crossover in both subs)..run audyssey..up the sub gain channel within 5dB of other speakers....the diff between two identical subs compared to one sub is huge in my room...

small...even though mains  and surround side are full range...u need to set small if want listen to stereo and activate sub through avr...

Now i use mix mode...cross at 60 is listen to stereo as integration with 2 channel is better..cross at 80 if watch movies for more SPL from sub..

How about you set to big for front L/R (set at 80hz) than...
Place your two subwoofers behind and disable Xover so let your AVR take full control?
Will this setting be nice for movie ?
