    After reading reviews and seeing the speakers i dont want to buy the cinema package and be underwhelmed by the sub so wondered what people thought of swapping it for an svs sb2000 and would it intergrate well?

    Any thoughts cheers Lee

    I think it will work really well. I swapped the sub which came with my monitor audio mass ( which is comparable to the 3000i sub,which was underwhelming) to the SB2000 and it works a treat with my mass satellites. Decent low end, great mid to upper bass and integrate really well. You wouldn't be disappointed.

    Clean, sealed subs aren't usually too difficult to integrate with most speaker packages. The SB2000 will be an upgrade on most subwoofers that are bundled with 5.1 packages.

    yeah you can. Considering the Q Acoustics sub doesn't seem that impressive. Dual 6.5" drivers, 140W amp, ported, probably more midwoofer.

    check who sells them.

    As long as you don't have a large room SB2000 should be plenty.

    I have a SVS SB12+ and SVS SB Ultra 13.

    Room is 12ft wide 15ft long with 7 ft ceiling. My kube 2 sub ive just sold sounded meaty enough so im thinking 500watts and 25hz should give me the wack!

    music or movies? Or both?

    For that room I'd probably consider the PB2000 if you're into movies (even though I prefer the SB type)

    For music the SB will be plenty.

    Or if you're considering duals at some point then I'd choose the SB (since they are smaller) so two SB's wouldn't dominate the room as much as two PB2000.

    Bit of both really the kef kube 2 ive just got rid of sounded good 200watts and down to 35hz so sb2000 should have more slam i think!
