Thanks.

Where can you find SB2000 for $399?
I believe it was part of the Black Friday sale. Even a vendor local to me was selling them for that price a few weeks after Black Friday on Ebay - until their stock ran out. Oops... I meant $499, not $399 as I had indicated earlier.

Good to hear, I was following the sale all month and would have been upset if I paid $200 too much for a pair of them. ;)

My SB2000's came late Wed evening, I felt bad for the poor Amazon driver who carried those 2 heavy subwoofers up my stairs and to the front door, gave him a $5.00 for the effort. Unboxed them and got the first one into postion yesterday and the other one today. Takes me a long time to handle these heavy packages, I forget how much I hate this kind of stuff in my old age. LOL I used to be like a kid on Christmas when I got new gear, now it's mostly a dreaded ordeal till it's over. Messing around in the wiring mess is like crawling into a pit of snakes with 11 channels of interconnects, 5 amps and all the rest AHAHHHHH.
I let them play for a couple hours before draging out the mike, boom, cables and the rest to run an initial Audyssey Editor setup.. Audyssey's curve that I tweaked to a room curve looks pretty good but of course it's only the app's guess at the results. I'll have to run REW next and see what things really look like, listen for a while and decide how I want to tweak it a little.
I will say the SVS boxes is for sure digging down much deeper than I could ever get from the HSU's, but that's what the spec's said they would do, so yippee. Here's a picture of that rough graph that Audyssey guesses it should look like. I'll put the REW lie detector to it in the near future.

I can totally relate and I am in my 40s. This is why its getting increasingly important to buy gear that doesn't give me an upgrade itch for a long time even if it means spending more.

Enjoy your new "boom" boxes :)
