My home theatre (76 photos)(5.0) (93 ratings)
The size difference between the 42s and the 62s is a factor of 3 times the volumetric measurements.
Uploaded Mar 22, 2015 23:09:55
With the RF82s, the RC52, and the PB13 Ultra operating in unison, the poor RS42s with the S2s could not keep up. One can say I was "under-backed." With the addition of the RS62s and the RS42s going to the support position, the back end can easily keep up with the front end. Immersion is now fully complete as there is simply no need for Atmos in this room. The RS62s can fully immerse the room with sound blending in with the rest of the system. Now my speaker array is complete.

After watching War of the World's, Cloverfield, and Pacific Rim the SVS PB13 Ultra subwoofer combined with the Synergistic Research Copper Tungsten power cord proved to be a very powerful duo with liquid smooth, chest asphyxiating power. This combo really changes the way your movie experience is presented.

Back shot of the Outlaw multichannel amp featuring main line power filtration.
An overhead shot of Blue Circle Audio's PLC Thingee, 12x Sillycone filter and X0e low frequency power filter. Purification of power for Plasma, AVR, Blu-ray, DVR, multichannel power amp come from these dense beasts housed in a 4.5 inch PVC (3.5 inch for X0e) and totally encased in silicone. Size is deceiving. The Thingee and Sillycone filter are large and heavy and do the job like nothing I have ever owned. The smaller X0e filter is developed for low frequency power grid "growl" and operates differently from its' two bigger brothers. The Outlaw amp is newly connected to the AVR with Blue Jeans Cable LC-1 interconnects and is powered by Shunyata Research' newly-released Viper Ztron power cord. A larger Ztron Alpha HC ac cord connects the PLC Thingee to the Shunyata SR Z1 wall outlet. Powering the AVR is a second Viper Ztron.

Shunyata Research just put the Alpha HC into production. They basically took their Cobra and tuned it three proprietary ways...Alpha analog, Alpha digital, and Alpha HC. The HC version is more expensive as it is designed for huge amplifier power to control massive voltage swings. The Alpha HC is now my mains feed to the PLC servicing the whole system except the subwoofer.

The Blu-ray assembly now sits solo on the top shelf. Featured here is the Samsung BD-6500c bluray player with Eden Sound Papa Bear Paw Triceratops brass footers on a 3 inch mapleblock with Eden Sound Fatboy Triceratops Brass dampening weights on top. The whole assembly rests on Eden Sound 2 inch Terrastone footers. This is very effective for making sound transparent and tight by eliminating resonance and by providing maximum drainage of trapped internal spent energy. Great for the picture too.

An overhead shot of the PB 13Ultra's Synergistic Research Element series Copper-Tungsten active hybrid power cord, Nordost Cineflex Bassline interconnect with Y-adaptor, and Shunyata Research cryogenic wall outlet.
The Synergistic power cord enables the sub to pull off lightening fast super-tight drive and it's helped with the Silver tuneable bullet for Synergistics' fast and strong response tuning.
Uploaded Nov 16, 2014 22:49:04
The Synergistic ac cord is tunable with three different tuning "bullets". Silver is fast and airy, Black is warm and mellow and Grey is tuned with a mixture of Silver and Black. I chose to attach the Silver tuning since I want my sub for home theatre performance in which hard-hitting fast attack performance is best.
Uploaded Nov 16, 2014 22:49:13
I thought the Shunyata Alpha HC was pricey but this Synergistic ac cord takes the stinking cake. A scaled-down version from their gargantuan Galileo LE, the Element Copper-Tungsten's performance increase on the PB-13 Ultra was well worth it. The sub behaves like another speaker between 35hz and 60hz, where I set upper bass management, and it's liquid smooth on rumble scenes. No stuttering, just a fluid low frequency push. Below 30hz hold on to your ribs. Below 20hz say goodbye to them. This hyper-hybrid ac cord shines so well with this sub.
No need to upgrade anymore unless I want the Galileo in which case I will set up a contribution fund at BR.com. I am set up for Paypal. If no contributions then this one is my last ac cord upgrade.

The TFA NF-B is a proprietary subwoofer cable limited to 100hz signal. It has a massive 12awg center conductor with dual cross-shielding to eliminate low frequency hum. I then ordered it with WBT silver connectors to complete the termination. This cable easily outperforms what I had before with smooth emphasis on the lowest registers. The LFE signal is ultra-fast and uncompressed. Build quality is first rate.

The 13.5 SVS proprietary driver weighs 60 lbs according to the SVS technician I spoke to. This is more than most subwoofers out there. The surround is made of Santoprene...a mix of Polypropalene and Rubber. It is very solid to the touch. Three tuning ports can be plugged. I have the middle port plugged and set on the amplifier's DSP settings for the one port plugged configuration. This is the best setting for ultra deep extension and absolute power.
