@TasDom I'm literally trying to laugh quietly as to not awaken my wife who is asleep.  That was too funny!

After 2 years, I finally decided to make an updated room tour of my 7.2.4 Dolby Atmos Setup. Enjoy!

I have been so busy lately, I haven't kept my AVS and Klipsch Build Thread's up.  Definitely have had some upgrades to the theater room.


I sold my (4) Klipsch RSW-15's that were approaching 15yrs old and purchased Dual SVS PB16 Ultras.   I loved the output of the my RSW15's but always wanted something that had a bit more depth.

I got a pair of SVS SB16 Ultras in to review and although they were nice, they didn't have the output the RSW15's had, even when doing a 1 on 1 comparison or a 2 on 2 comparison.  I knew it wouldn't be a fair fight if I put all 4 RSW15's up against the Dual SB16's.

I reached out to SVS with my findings and after thinking about it, they realized the RSW15 is more similar to a ported design than a sealed design.  I always viewed them as a sealed enclosure since they don't have "ports".  Learn something new everyday.

So they sent me a pair of PB16 Ultras and oh my goodness.  Talk about impressive.  You guys know how much I love Klipsch but the PB16 Ultra is a beast, not only in size, but also in output, depth and had much more authority below 30Hz than my 4 RSW15's had.

Before sending back the Dual SB16's, I had a little bit of fun with them and decided to stack them behind my 150" screen.  :)




Awesome man well done indeed. 


Did you prefer the 3 open 20 hz tuning on those 16s? On the 3 big svs I had I found the 20 hz 3 open ports best by quite a bit. I was somewhat surprised being so many seemed to plug one and prefer it.
