    Help with audio question...Sub woofer.

    I purchased a new sub woofer a SVS PB16-Ultra Subwoofer and wish not to disturbed my neighbors.
    But still want to enjoy it. Itís capable of 1,500 watts to 5,000+ if needed.





    The room that it will live in is on a cement slab would Isolation feet still help?


    Thanks
    Jim

    Doubtful. At 5,000+ watts, I could probably just about hear it out here on the east end of Long Island. Lol
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.

    1500 RMS or 5000 Peak. That’s still pretty loud.

    Since the low frequencies travel in any direction, I don’t think the isolating feet would help much. You might just need to not run it at full power

    Capable of that much but how much are you driving it with? Isolation feet from concrete are only going to keep the noise from the box "shaking" on the hard surface. The neighbors wont be worried about that part cause it wont travel that far BUT IT WOULD DRIVE ME NUTZ in my garage so get some isolation feet anyway.

    Congrats on the new subwoofer!

    Blu-ray movies go to another level, set your crossover to 100-120 to let the sub do its thing.

    As soon as you can get the PB 16 a playmate, it needs one!

    One sub is great, two are awesome. Seriously the second sub balances out the room HUGE difference you'll love it.

    I think that model comes with a built-in amplifier tuned to drive the woofer as designed.

    Run it at a lower wattage 1000 or so. If your amp has gain adjustment turn that down
