Just watched latest Sherlock Holmes movie Game of Shadows and the scene near the end when they're running away from soldiers through a forest is one of the best surround scenes I've come across. The SVS blends in so nicely with the surrounds in that scene it really gives you that immersive feeling.

You could say the same thing, about chapter 8, on the 5 Days of War blu-ray disc.

My dual PB12-NSD's, blended so nicely with the surrounds, during that hallway firefight scene.

I swear, that I could "hear" and "feel" the breeze, from all those bullets whizzing by my head!

An incredibly immersing scene if ever there was one.

Hey walmat, it looks like someone forgot to tell you, once you buy an SVS sub and experience it, you’re gonna want to watch your entire collection all over again to see what you were missing before.

Yet, you have more reason then just your sub, You bought a whole new front stage, a new receiver. You have some great reasons to re-watch everything as if it was all new.

So, how are you liking the Monitor Audio & SVS combo?

I recently picked up The Day After Tomorrow on BD a few weeks ago for dirt cheap.
Haven't gotten around to watching it yet.

It's awesome. I love that movie for some reason. I guess I am just a sucker for disaster movies like that . I even enjoy 2012 because of that. Even though I realize it is not a good movie lol.

My favorite disaster movie of all time is 1974's Earthquake.

Anybody remember Sensurround?

When the movie played at Graumann's Chinese Theater in Hollywood in 1974 it was shown in "Sensurround" with heavy bass speakers set on the floor around the theater. Very soon after the preview performances, a giant net had to be rigged above the patrons because of fear that the ornate ceiling decorations might break loose and fall on the audience below due to the low bass rumble of earthquake sequences. During the film's initial preview performances at the theatre, the Sensurround vibrations actually caused an occasional, very small and harmless piece of plaster or paint to crack and fall down onto the audience. Worried that continuous periods of strong sound waves throughout the film's exclusive run might loosen elements of the ceiling's ornamentation and light fixtures, the theatre management ordered the safety net to be slung below the entire auditorium ceiling, just below the ornamentation. This action was publicized in the local papers. Whether or not the ceiling's very visible "safety net" was an actual, workable safety measure or whether it was merely a publicity gimmick, it did serve to heighten audience anticipation of the film's effects.

I hope that when this flick is released on BD, Universal will have D-Box controls built into it.

That would give my dual PB12-NSD's a very good workout.

You know Hamp you were right on the money. The MA's and SVS sound great together. All my recent upgrades have been definitely worthwhile. I love the Integra. Great amp. I have a new appreciation for my HT and you're right watching my blus again is like hearing them for the first time. Even after getting the MA"s the missing piece was the SVS. I am now complete...for now

The only problem with that is you really don't know what movies to re-watch (re-discover, I'll should say) first!

But, non the less, it is a fun experience....

SVS owners i need your insight........

I have been struggling with going from a ported sub to the SVS SB12's X2.

I want to place them behind my seating position in my 11.5 ft X 27 ft (2500 cubic ft) dedicated theater room. The ceiling is only 87 inches high. The room is a rectangle. I will have Goldenear Triton II's up front and plan on putting either GE Forcefield 4's or the SVS SB12's in the back. Movies/Music=60/40

I would like to achieve bass you can feel in the chest, But i am leaning towards a trade off if need be for clarity, accuracy and tightness.

Please if you have time look at my build so what i am talking about is illustrated better.

I am open to all of your thoughts. I know SVS's are excellent subs no question there, what i need your insight on is: are sealed better for my application or are ported?

Are you planning to use the subs for movies only? Or, are your going to use them for music as well?

Ported subwoofers will give you that feel in the chest that you are looking for (more extension).

Sealed subwoofers are a bit better for music.

However, you have a really nice set of speakers and I think you can go easily with the ported subwoofers and enjoy the LFE on movies and a really nice music session whenever you want it.

My two cents.

BTW - Congrats on your HT!

Movies 60, music 40

Thank you for your input. You have a good point there.
