So the wife said ok... And I'm about to pull the trigger on my most recent system upgrade which is a GIANT leap from my 10 inch Klipsch subwoofer. I spoke at length with SVS and read reviews wherever I could find, including on the main site. Still unsure of how much power it actually takes to give good bass though to make my chest thump. \n\nI have an open concept house with stairwell to the upstairs behind living room. First floor is 10 foot ceilings, I can close a sliding farm door to a cathedral ceiling room. So let's say I need to fill 15,000-20,000 cubic feet. Is that a rediculous task or will this do the trick? Would PB 2000s do just as well?\n\nAny thoughts from folks who have made open concept house bass work would be great.
