re: SVSound MBS-02 Speaker Review: Discussion Thread


Dennis, how did the MBS-02 compare in bass performance to the STS-02 tower speakers. Were the bookshelf speakers better at everything. It would be amazing if the MBS-02's were better at bass then the STS-02's considering the MBS-02's only have 1 mid woofer.

re: SVSound MBS-02 Speaker Review: Discussion Thread


I would say that both had excellent bass down to the cutoff freq. of 80hz (my setting). I think the difference lies in overall clarity. I perceived the MBS-02's to have a tad more depth (as in sound stage) to them. Both are much better than their price would indicate. Dennis

Thanks for the review Dennis. What would you consider SVS's "best" configuration of speakers for a surround system if price were not a factor. I am not that familiar with their product line.

I am using the speaker set mentioned in my personal info. I can't say enough of how impressed I am with this system. I haven't as yet decided on a permanent sub, but am using the SB-12 NSD, and loving it. You will always get your money's worth with SVSound. Have fun. Dennis

I personally prefer di-pole/bi-pole surrounds since I mostly watch movies. If you tend to listen to music, you may prefer direct radiating speakers. Dennis

re: SVSound MBS-02 Speaker Review: Discussion Thread


Thanks for the review Dennis. Based upon your review I ordered a pair of the MBS-02 speakers and may I say that they are very impressive speakers both in build quality and performance. Even though the weight is clearly stated in the specifications it took me by surprise when I tried to load the box into my truck. These speakers are HEAVY! The only negative regarding the build quality is that one of the grill magnets comes loose from the grill and sticks to the front of the enclose. That can be fixed with a little glue.

Another negative comment is that they came completely identified as MBS-01s, right down to the serial number on the back of each speaker. The box they came in is also marked as MBS-01s. I called the SVS technical support and Jack assured me that they were -02s and told me how to confirm that they were -02s (the tweeter has the SVS logo and the driver is supposed to have a metal cone). I have not been able to determine that the cone is metal because it is coated. I'll just have to take they're word for that. This really doesn't matter to me as long as they perform like 02's but, in the unlikely event that I would ever want to sell them I'd have to prove somehow that they were 02's. How can I do that if I not completely sure myself?



Just out of curiosity Dennis, Did your demo speakers come similarly packaged and marked?

Mine came the same way. They must have had a problem getting updated boxes. The logo on the tweeter confirms that they are the 02's. Hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoy mine. Dennis
