Well the SVS arrived today and my first impressions are:

It is the best sub I have had in my house(but I have only had 3 other good subs in the house). It has some solid impact and goes low. Even at lower volumes I can still get a good thud or bump in a movie to shake the couch, very cool. I have done very little set up other than initial calibration level. I even like the way it blends with the M80s while listening to music.

Now Greg, Tex and I have to try to get together one more time for a full comparison.

For those of us too old to remember or too lazy to look for the info, could you please list those 3 subs you currently have in your house? Thx. (er, the THX here is short for thanks and should not be considered as a certification... I don't want to get sued!)

I have only had 3 good subs in my house. I never owned them just listened. I had ctown's STF-3 hooked up at one time, the EP400 and a couple of weeks ago the Paradigm DSP-3100, the Velodyne wasn't too bad but I wouldn't put it in the same league as the HSU or the Paradigm for that matter, as an all around sub.

The only sub I have ever owned is my 13 yr old Costco special.

I am looking forward to round 2 of the sub comparison. I just hope we can get together before I have to send it back, if it doesn't stand up to the Axioms.

Hey fellas, let me know what works.

I'm playing Mr. Mom on friday(tomorrow) and I'm in Banff this weekend, so next week is better for me. Or otherwise tomorrow I might be able to make something work.

My buddy is interested in hearing some axiom products and wants to come along. His main setup is mostly Rotel gear and some Polk RT1000i's. He's also got a setup in his family room using some JBL's and having problems with the sub that goes with them.

We are both around most of next week and in sales, so could even get out of the office during the day if needed.

later, Al

One more thing I noticed about the SVS, it came double boxed as well as the usual styrofoam packing, 2 extra fuses and a SVS promotional pen thrown in with the manual, a nice touch. The manual actually goes into the basics of setting up a sub and that a SPL meter is a must for HT setups. They also list off a number of movie scenes to check out 'deep bass' as they put it. Here are few from their list that I wouldn't have thought of:

The Iron Giant: Chase Thru Forest -scene 8, Robot Landing - scene 10 and Green Boom - scene 27
Appollo 13: Lift Off - scene13, Coming Home -scene 53
Titanic: We can't leave him -scene22, Ship splitting at 2:41:30 of the movie
Apocalypse Now: Chopper Ride -scene 2, ARC LIGHT scene 4, Grenade Launch scene 12
Dark City: Let the tuning Commence - scene 8, City Makeover - scene 15
