SVS PC-4000 subwoofer (music only)...

I have owned a lot of different subwoofers over the years in various systems, both 2-ch and home theater.  I only do stereo setups now - not interested in theater anymore. Most times (depending a bit on he room), I would do a stereo sub setup.  I have owned various REL subs (which are nice, but expensive), various HSU models, Klipsch, B&W, PSB, etc.

If you have had experience with this particular SVS model... are they pretty good with music only? 

I love the fact that there is an app to control/adjust everything from the listening position and it seems like this monster would dig pretty deep.  I am looking for a sub that will really pressurize a room.... like real output below 20hz that will hammer the room.

Hi there all I can say is I Have had great experiences with SVS like many people I'm sure... I have always went with the sealed boxes. The particular model you reference I only remember reading bad reviews about. I have zero personal experience but that is what I read about it. As for bass extension under 20hz I have to think the PORTED boxes in the SVS line are the only ones that will reliably do this. When I listen to music I think rap is the only one I think of that would really require digging deep. I dont know that the other genres really make use of it. You're also not necc looking for that rumble you would in music as you do in home theater. I can tell you when I play rap I get to discover all my room modes running dual svs SB ultra 16s
