I would do straight room correction first, without playing with the SVS App.

Audyssey, ya? Do you have XT32 and the App?
Yes to both. What an exceptional audio tool that combo is.

The Verdict is In.
Why didn't I do this earlier?

Flabbergasted by how much better the system sounds with dual SVS PC2000 Pros, and to be fair, the Polk 706c large, three way center.

We listened to music for hours yesterday (during college football games in lieu of stupid banter).

Listened in both Stereo and Surround formats. "Darkside of the Moon" in SACD multichannel PCM was unreal!

I do not know if the improvement is due to having:
a) Matched subs (vice a sealed and a ported)
b) Better quality subs (one PC2K costs as much as both older subs combined)
c) Both the above in combination?
d) A more capable center.
The Stereo improvement indicates the subs play a larger role IMHO.

Thanks to all who kindly advised!

C! For sure C! Mixing ported and sealed is tricky business and generally never recommended. There is a significant jump in performance and quality too with the new subs.

When I saw what you had before I knew the PC2000s would blow your balls off, lol. Your impression reminds me of @Mark E. Long recently upgrading his subs too. Everyone almost always underestimates what capable subwoofage can do for a system, and it's frustrating because it's impossible to convey just how much over a forum without coming across as big, dopey basshead! You pretty much have to experience it, but once you do you REALLY get it!

Good quality bass is misunderstood and overlooked, all too frequently. It is not about bringing the walls of Jericho down around you, rather just extending the clean and linear performance of your system down to whetever frequency extension one chooses to pursue.

Very glad to hear you are experincing such a profound improvement in your experience. It is quite enjoyable, IME, to have that kind of performance in my system, even for something like Buddy Guy's Done Got Old or the beginning of Cowboy Junkies' Mining For Gold... But then, put on some proper Electronica or a movie like Blade Runner 2049, and my gawd...

There is nothing like a low frequency sound bath to right the many wrongs of a hard day! ;) :cool:

I'm tickled pink every time I see great results like this. Makes me feel vindicated for pushing better subwoofage so often! Lol

I am one that definitely overlooked what good bass can do to your HT. I mean for a very long time I did. Now I know what it does and how I can't live without it.

Beat me to it!

Seriously tho, I recently discovered and posted up a bunch of "rebassed" classic rock and metal songs on the last page or 2 that sound really good, keeping in mind that they are bass boosted and not exactly accurate. They're well done and clean tho. Remastered with deep, clean bass an octave or 2 lower than original and not just boosting what was already there. The "Enya" remix hits legit subsonic frequencies you can feel more than hear. A couple of them do. Have fun!

From the same Buddy Guy Sweet Tea album, the song Baby, Please Don't Leave Me has a sick bass line to it.
Wow

Side benefit to the dual PC2k Pro sub upgrade in HT is in the pic below of separate room with 2-Ch rig.

Hint: stacked SB12-NSDs, just for fun.

"On Air" light is from my father's Ham Radio station, KG6NH, now a "silent key".
Cheers,
