I don't have information to share yet.   Only that it seems that it may be a 21" driver at this time.... And will be the most cost effective, serious sub I can get my hands on 👍.  Thanks GSG AUDIO

21" driver and cost effective is an oxymoron.

I didn't say cheap.  Budget is still in the works. Based on my list and dimensions given, that was proposed.  Nothing is set in stone yet.   Compared to say a $2500 SVS ultra 16?   I looked them up.  $550 or so for a driver.   I seem what you mean.

You should just get the two sealed models to prove us wrong.

 

That Table Tuba is good to about 25 Hz with cabin gain before dropping off, dB wise its not even close.

 

Make the long style version and its only an inch more floor space width & depth with the 10" driver, the 8" version can be as small as 15" x 12"

 

this isnt a competition & im not trying to prove you or anyone wrong... just asking some legit questions & stating what SVS & many others say about 2 subs vs 1.

and talk about an accurate bass that is musical! I wasn't joking when I said it ruined regular powered subwoofers. Was it established if the OP was using it primarily for music or HT? ( I probably missed it)

 

yes i stated i mainly listen to music, classic & modern rock, heavier rock/alternative.  some movies but i have a different system i use for movies.

yes i looked at the cylinders, kind of awkward to position them in my room & havent really seen any on the used market within my budget.  my front corners are called for with the mains, i was planning to put the 2 sb2000s inside of the mains between the stand & mains... or maybe move one to the side wall closer to the end of the couch if it sounds better there after doing some checking with the "sub crawl" method.

Your legit questions have been answered and proven with test results and professional opinions but yet you still ask the same questions about the same subs.

 

The theory of 1 sub vs 2 need to be taken in context.

no, i do not ask the same questions about the same subs & nothing you have posted really proves anything.  you keep posting things that dont apply to my question/situation & totally disregard my stated requirements of budget/space & reason for a sub in my system.  i am NOT looking for max spl or lowest hz or big ported & horn loaded subs, each persons needs are different.  one more time, this thread is about comparing dual/two/2- sb2000's to a single/1- pb13 ultra.  i appreciate your comments & the links to graphs but none of that address these specific 2 vs 1 subs.  so yes, i continue to re-state my objectives in reply to your comments, if you feel im asking the same questions, you are free to stop giving the same answers. :rolleyes:

 

i appreciate everyones advice & suggestions for other subs... unfortunately i can not afford new subs & i dont want ported/horn subs at this time for my needs in this room/system.  unless someone has first hand experience with the 2 options im asking about we can wrap this thread up & i will continue searching for what im looking for.  if the 2 sb2000s are such terrible subs, i will find that out & then resell them for what i pay, no waste of money & no harm seeing what they do in my room. there are plenty of satisfied owners of sealed subs.

 

thank you

I just ordered plans for a couple of the tuba subs. I’m ready to be awed. If this works, maybe I’ll upgrade the AVR in the family room with the money I didn’t spend on a subwoofer.
Do you have or do you plan on using a Mini-dsp or something similar? It made all the difference with mine and actually, it is totally necessary to set the proper slope.

The answers have been posted, you just can't interpret them.

 

You're welcome.

at this time  no, just want to ad some subs to my mediocre little set up in a relatively small room at normal listening levels.  im sure a dsp has its benefits but dont think thats totally necessary for my system right now.

I was quoting M_Klipsch's post about his Tuba sub.

ive read every post on here including yours... i dont see any direct answers to my question of if somone owns these subs & has compared them- 1 pb13 to 2 sb2000's. 

 

you posted graphs showing 1 pb13 vs 1 12nsd.  posted a link about the sb2000 saying it has bad distortion, yet the review had nothing but positive things to say about it, as @Westcoastdrums stated in his comments.  your other comments are about how i need dual 15" ported subs or nothing, "might as well just use the chorus2 without any subs"  or that a pb13 is a childs toy compared to "your subs" basically bashing SVS in general. 

 

if you think i cant interpret those unrelated answers,  i think you have a problem with basic reading comprehension & can't seem to acccept that many people out there dont want or need what you do.  can we kindly put this to rest now please?

Until I got caught up in this thread. I had only heard the term “tuba subwoofer”. I knew nothing about them. It seems like a build I can pull off without a huge investment. I hadn’t considered anything thing beyond the wood, driver & amp. I do not have a DSP of any sort.  Apologies to the OP, as my intention wasn’t to hijack the thread. Thanks for the input though. I suppose I should start another thread once I’m underway. I’ll look forward to advice from someone with more skill than myself. I’ll tag you once I get started. Maybe even before I start. would be a better idea.
