I'm trying to figure out what to do Sub wise in my new setup.

I am going to have a room that is 18'x25' with a 13' foot vaulted ceiling. The back of this room is not enclosed, because it goes into my dining room and kitchen.

So it's not ideal shape, but it's all I got. Right now I have a SVS PB12-ISD. I was thinking about going to a EP500, and wondering if I would notice a significant differene of this change. Also would it be a lot better to place 2 EP500 in this room. I watch a lot of movies and listen to music. 70/30 movies to music.

I don't think my wife will let me get away with EP600 or 800.

What would you all do in this space?

Are you planning on selling your PB12?

I'm using an EP350 in an area that's about half of that space. I think either 2 EP350's or 2 EP500's would be best.

I was thinking about selling the PB12.

I think the wife would like the maple cabinet on the EP500 vs. the Black cabinet of my current PB12.



Another question... Since the EP500 is a forward facing woofer, could I have it partially covered by a cabinet or end table?

Is the actual model ISD or NSD? Is there any difference?

ISD. Not for sure of the difference. I was looking at SVS website last night and it doesn't look like they offer the ISD anymore.

My ISD is a downward facing woofer.

I listened to the PB12-NSD, before purchasing my PB13 Ultra and if the ISD is anywhere near the same output as the NSD I would say the EP500 is only slightly better than what you currently own, YMMV. But with the Axiom subs you get a smoother, richer, more life like sound, not the dry thud like most subs.

I see no reason this would be a problem, as long as there's no obstruction to the front side.

keep in mind this might not be the ideal location to get the best low frequency response in that room.

I am limited to where I can place the sub in the space. Hopefully it will sound good where it has to go.

Anyone familiar with the PB12-ISD v. EP500? (Other than the fact that the ISD was about $400 when I bought it and the EP500 is more than 3x that amount)
