Do SVS subs ever go on sale?
AccessDenied posted a topic in SubwoofersI'm not expecting any specific answers here, just a general inquiry if members here are aware of SVS sales, such as BlackFriday/Holiday sales...? I'm looking to buy the PB-1000, I realize for some people here $500 is pocket change and they'd say, "Just buy the thing already!". But for me, that's a considerable purchase and if I could wait a few months and save $100 or so it's something to think about. I figure it's a company that kinda sticks to it's prices? I know there is an outlet section, but the PB-1000 rarely is for sale in there, which is a good sign in my opinion. So, is anyone aware of SVS sales on their own site? I say that because I know they will go up on sale in B&M stores near me, but that voids the Bill of Rights that SVS provides. I want that 45-day trial, and the 1 year trade in offer, and the 5 year warranty. SVS reps tell me none of that applies (perhaps the 5 year warranty is still valid) if I purchase from a retailer. They set their own policies and don't have to adhere to anything SVS suggests. Thanks all!
PB1000 or SB1000
AccessDenied posted a topic in SubwoofersOk, new thread... You've all convinced me I should get a sub. You've also convinced me I do not have entry level gear and I should work on refining my current setup once the sub is hooked up... I think I've narrowed down to either the SVS SB1000 or PB1000. I love that they offer 45-day trials on their equipment - true testament to quality? I also realize that offering such a service means you are paying for it somewhere... For those who do not need to trial the sub, they may think these subs are overpriced. I will likely buy one in the coming month or two. I know I can just pick one and if it doesn't work out I can return it and get the other one. But which should I try first? Ideally I will be happy with the first purchase and not have to return it. That will keep the buyer and seller the happiest! So, here's my breakdown: RB-35s as mains RC-62 center RS-52 surrounds The room is 19x15' with 12' vaulted gable ceilings. There is a 6' opening to the room by the kitchen and the TV sits adjacent to this wall (so on the 13' side). I'd say 50% is video games, 25% movies/shows, 25% music. If I'm missing some info to help the decision let me know. So, ported or sealed? I know there are personal preferences and I should test them out myself. And I plant to. But should one first over the other? It's like test driving a car... Do you hop right into the Turbo model or do you drive the eco first? I'm leaning towards the sealed sub based on reviews saying it's "punchier" and "cleaner". I don't want to piss off the neighbors, we just bought the house! haha. But I want to round out the sound my system is currently outputting.
