It's not that I want tons of bass (except when T-Rex shows up in Jurrassic Park). I just want accurate bass.

.. not sure if the wife would want lots of "chicks" enjoying my bass response anyhow

Hello Wyatth,

Hope you are well. No problem. Also, I have never heard of anyone with a SVS PC-Ultra that they did not like. Can't really go wrong with one of them in your system.

Later,

TonyM

My sub is accurate. Check out the reviews. I listen to music more than movies. The sub rattles things in my house because it goes very low 18Hz at 98db and as low as 16Hz.
LOTR ROTK was an awesome demo for my sub, same with Jurassic Park.
This sub is far from “boomy” and it is very tight. I think it may be too big for my room. Or I just need to tweak more.

I actually had the chance to hear a Supernova and I must say that although it wasn't the one tleigh has (I think it was smaller) it was a fine sub none the less. I don't think you can go wrong with it or a SVS or an HSU.

Hello to "Yet Another Fellow Texan" (YAFT)!
I did check out Audio Concepts and got a little perturbed. The guy didn't really want to play my Billy Cobham CD, he insisted playing Norah Jones. While Jones' voice is sweet, it's not what I usually listen to. It struck me as very pretentious that he thought my music selection wasn't a proper choice to evaluate the true elegance of the latest speaker that they're pimping for.

.. and what is it with every freakin' store tyring to use Norah Jones "I Don't Know Why" for demo's these days?? Did I miss the memo?

I noticed that Norah Jones mystery too. I didn't get that memo either.

A good salesman should allow you to play what ever you want if they want to make the sale. It sounds like the salesman wasn't comfortable playing unfamiliar material. I would've walked out without looking back. That’s like taking a test drive in a new car with a salesman telling you that he's going to drive and that you can’t. That ridiculous.

Most reputable sound shops will tell you to bring in some of your favorite CD’s to demo. That’s my experience anyway. I would call the store manager and complain , they might give you a voucher for 10% off or something.

Well I'm just glad they got off Pink Floyd. For the longest time anytime I went to give something a listen, it as Floyd. Use to drive me crazy.

By the way, I would also complain. It would be a frosty day in hell before a salesman pulled crap like that with me.

Hello from "Yet Another Fellow Texan"...

wyatth,

If you find yourself in Austin or would put in the drive down, I would be more than happy to let you hear my setup which includes M60's, VP150, M22's and an SVS 20-39 PC+.

As to my YAFT number, I am unsure who would be considered YAFT #1, possibly Sushi...so in a spirit of camradarie, I'll assign myself YAFT #9.

Live from Austin, Texas.

WhatFurrer (YAFT #9)
