So,a little update since I’ve had some time to get acquainted with the SB 2000 pros. I’ve had them with the same settings,and positioning for about four days now. I originally had them about 40% down the long wall from the front,facing each other. This probably would have worked great for home theater,not so much for music. I then slid them down the wall further,and back towards the front wall. The closer to the front wall,and farther from my seating position,the better things get. I now have them behind my speakers, closer to the center. This seems to be the sweet spot. It has been suggested to run some programs to get a “picture” of my room modes. I am a caveman. I’m not afraid to admit that. I actually enjoy playing with settings,and location to suit my ears.
Now,on to the subs. I don’t have a ton of experience with many different brands or models. The HSU’s I’ve been running carried me down the road in this hobby,but I knew it was time to step up to the next level, and I feel the SVS’s have definitely done that. On top of the bass frequencies going much lower, these are just so much tighter. I didn’t realize how flabby the STF-1’s were until hearing these. I was going to run the HSU’s in the rear,and have a “swarm” to smooth out the bass. At this point,I’m very please at what I’m hearing from the only seat in the room. Besides,I moved the three HSU’s into the Pit, the STF’s are helping with home theater duty, and the big HSU (see what I did there?) is handling music duty. For music,when you move around the room,yes the bass is very location dependent. That’s ok,I’m the only one that does 2 channel listening,and it is great in that location.
Well,that’s all I got for now,
