SVS PB-13 Ultra - thoughts & opinions?

Recommended Posts

Hi all. Searched through the forums and to my surprise, no discussion thread on these popular (and IMO great!) HT subs. 

 

Massive cabinets and massive low-end output, most powerful commercial sub I've listened to. Velodyne DDs and JL F113s are great too, and possibly more refined, but in terms of sub-bass impact and weight, this one I like the most.

I've owned one in the past, and it's definitely a solid sub (literally and figuratively). It's 16-31.5Hz output is still top tier among the commercial units that Josh has tested. That said, it's getting a bit long in the tooth, and a lot of competition has cropped up. Output on the top end (i.e. 50Hz on up) is nothing to write home about either.

Yep...Really well engineered sub. Still offers a lot of deep bass performance. It has been around for a LONG time now and competitors have marched in with a lot of new offerings that compete.

I did notice how mine struggled with the Resident Evil Afterlife intro at loud volume. It can shake my house effortlessly with WoTW but with lots of mid-bass slam the Velodynes are better.
