First off, I am an axiom owner, but I chose to get an SVS sub. It just got delivered and I hooked it up, calibrated and was surprised to find that it didn’t sound as great as I had hoped.
My old sub was a 175w KLH that really didn’t keep up with my Axioms, but the bass felt cleaner and punchier with the KLH than with the SVS.
The SVS rattles the walls, but I can’t really feel the “hit” in the seating area. It justs feels flat. A good example of what’s going is when I‘m watching the Fellowship of the Ring and Sauron explodes on the battlefield, that massive wave of bass is felt with my old KLH, but not with the SVS.
I am returning the SVS, so I’ll be in the market for a new sub. Am I just being punished for not getting an Axiom sub?
Any advice would be much appreciated.
