Nice, Yogiboy! I have an svs sub also and love it. Svs makes great subs. What are your main speakers and how big is your room and how much bass do you want?
I like to run my paradigm studio 20's full range, not crossed over, and I set the crossover on my sub between 40hz-50hz. This set-up sounds great to me with perfect integration. If I set my crossover on the sub any higher, the sound becomes slightly muddied.
I prefer to run my main speakers full range as to not introduce another crossover to them, and I just want my sub to pick up where my mains drop off. I also prefer centering my sub between the main speakers because bass for me, is somewhat directional. Placing it in the corner of a room makes it louder but less accurate.
That sb 1000 looks like a great sub for the money, and in my opinion, sealed boxed subs are better for music. The don't have the sheer output of a ported design, all things being equal, but they provide a tighter bass.
