    I’m looking to buy this sub to go along with my dynaudio BM6A speakers but I keep running across two different looking subs with the exact same name

    For example
    there is this
    https://www.amazon.com/Dynaudio-BM9S-II-Extender-Subwoofer/dp/B01HU41WKU

    And this
    https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/prod...oustics_995014011_bm9s_ii_studio_monitor.html

    And these aren’t the only two links I’ve found these two variants with the same name. Can anyone help me with this mystery? I’m thoroughly confused

    Both are the same subwoofer, there's a typo in the Amazon's product description "The latest edition to our Professional monitors - LYD..."

    This subwoofer (BM9S) is being replaced by a new model called "9S", which is intended to be paired with the new LYD studio monitor range.

    You have the BM6A studio monitors, so if I were you I'll look for the BM9S, not only because they're made to be used together, but if it's being discontinued, you might be able to find a nice deal (typical last unit in stock or b-stock discounts).

    Our CMO bought one and returned it after I showed him my SVS SB-2000. Dynaudio sub sadly lacked in output and extension.

    SVS PC-2000 works well in my space from 16 to 80 Hz where crossed to PSB Imagine B for small room listening. Low distortion for a sub. Only subs I like better are the Bag End D18-E with infrasub in one of my acoustic labs. They are impressive with a Crown iTech 5000.

    Man, it is such a coincidence that you guys started talking about this now. I decided just yesterday to look for a used SVS SB-2000 (or maybe the Rythmik F12) for my setup. Good to hear some solid comments about the SVS from you guys!

    I'll post about it when I find and get one. Not enough speaker/sub talk on SBAF! :)

    Very cool, thank you guys for the input.

    To those who have the svs sb-2000 (which I am very interested in now) what speakers do you have it paired with?

    I’m ready to throw out the idea of getting the dynaudio sub like yesterday’s newspaper.
    The svs sb-2000 has the Hz crossover of 60 and 80hz needed to match with the bm6a so that’s a plus. And it has great reviews from what I’ve read so far. And it’s a reasonable price! You guys might just be onto something ;)

    Rythmik is having a Spring sale on a handful of models.

    I currently run a pair of Rythmik F12's with my Salk Songtower system.

    To those of you who are rocking the Svs sb-2000 , are you use using them with studio monitors or a home theater setup? I noticed there isn’t any xlr ins/outs to route studio monitors.

    You can use RCA throughput to send audio to your monitors. My preference, however was to use a digital crossover and send different signals to the sub and satellites.

    Could you elaborate on that? The ideal would be to have a crossover at 80hz as that is where the dynaudio sub crosses over wjth the bm6a monitors.

    How exactly do you use a digital crossover to send a different signals to sub and satellite? Is it a software program? I only have two outputs on my DAC. I have the Apogee duet. Well I route the audio first to the subwoofer and then from the sub offer to the satellites bike an I only have two outputs on my DAC. I have the Apogee duet. Well I route the audio first to the subwoofer and then from the sub to satellites? That’s how it works with the Dynaudio audio subwoofer . There are two XLr ins as well as 2XLR outs on the sub
