    How do you like the PB16-Ultras. I really wanted it but it is just too big for my room. Possibly in the future.

    Most of us probably fall in that category, this, however, is a special circumstance. Those are bound to be legendary. Pretty sure PSA has discontinued them.

    Yes, they have been discontinued. These were the originals with the high excursion 15 inch woofers and weigh 240 pounds! They sold a T-18 for a while also but that also is no longer made.

    They are supposedly coming out with a new flagship sealed at some point.

    I am truly not able to run with the big dogs here, yet, as I have only one measly HSU VTF3 MK5 HP.
    Having said that, I know I will get another one as time moves on but in reality, it works pretty well in my room.
    Oh and I too have a very understanding wife as well....that and the fact she does not hear well is bad for her but good for me.

    If you run them all at the same time you might trigger a fault line and cause a not so natural disaster, earthquake! :thud:

    I have a Hsu VTF-15H MK2 that I picked up at Axpona a couple of weeks ago.
    Also have an infinite baffle subwoofer with 4 IB15 Acoustic Elegance drivers in a manifold build driver by a Dayton mono amp rated at 450 watts at 8 ohms. LFE are awesome. I included a couple of pics.

    TC Sounds LMS Ultra 18" in a 7cf3 cabinet with 2 18" Funk Audio Passive Radiators tuned to 16HZ. got a second one on the way without the lms in it. It will have a 18" from funk audio that has similar spec's that should integrate well together. My current sub is powered by a Sanway FP14000 with miniDSP 2X4.

    Right now I'm using a single SVS PB12-NSD. It's been rock solid for many years but I'd like to upgrade to their new PB16 subwoofer.

    My setup can't compare to some here...
    1 SVS PC12+ (sealed mode)
    1 PSA S1500
    I wish I could do more, but no room...

    I went ahead and placed my duo KK 12012 in different areas vs stacked like Ken designed them. This is my first time doing so. I'll have to try different material and see if there is any difference for the better.

    Those VTF3s are a good sub! If you pack two of those in a room you'll be a happy guy! ;-)

    This is my hope Todd, a second sub should do me well, or a third or fourth. :innocent:

    Besides what I am using in Post #10, I have a pair of SVS SB12 NSD and Auralex SubDudes just sitting around waiting to be used in a future system.

    I have a pair of Danley DTS10 subs, but I am thinking I might try to build 2 more for the new Negatron Theater when we get it built as the room will be larger than we currently have (hopefully it will be the size I have calculated out.)

    I used to own the original and have heard a pair of Turbos. Massive output!

    Yea, I lived with a Turbo for a couple of months. It's a gem, for sure.

    I had an original as well and l always thought it was a very impressive SUB. I've never heard the turbo version. Unfortunately the amp in mine died and I got rid of it several years ago.

    It's really a shame what happened with AV123.
