    Default Want to add a second sub - same model or diffrent?

    I have the Sierra 2 and horizon center paired with a SVS PB-2000 sub. My next upgrade is for another sub. Do I go with the same model sub or do I mix it up and get a Rythmik sub?

    The room is a dedicated theater. 19' X 15' with 8' ceiling. I am currently running 7.1 setup with SVS prime satellites for the side and back surrounds.

    Thanks for any input!

    Since you already have the SVS, unless you are willing to sell it, it would be best to go with another PB-2000. I love my Rythmik, so if I had the budget I would add another. Regardless, I'd keep them the same.

    You absolutely, positively always want to buy identical subs. Getting two different subs, especially from different vendors, to blend together is next to impossible and takes a lot of very complex EQ to do right. Even getting matching subwoofers setup perfectly usually takes a lot of effort, even Dirac doesn't always get it right.

    Thank you for the info. Are two subs worth the effort? I keep seeing articles where the consensus is that two subs are best for a theater/music room.

    Two identical subs are actually far easier to set up than a single sub.
