Re: SVS PB1000 and SB1000 Subwoofer Review Discussion Thread

I agree. If your budget is $700, the SB-2000 would be a better option. If you can stretch your budget a bit (and maintain WAF), you might want to try dual SB-1000s.

Re: SVS SB13-Ultra Owners Thread

Wow, thanks for the review and comparison to your other high-end subs! Nice to know it can keep up or exceed your others and is good enough to consider over your Ken Kreisel 12012.

Keep us posted...

Re: SVS PB1000 and SB1000 Subwoofer Review Discussion Thread

I only ever had a brief listen to a PB13-Ultra, and it was a while ago. From memory, it was truly amazing for HT, however music, though deep and accurate where you could hear nuances with the very...

Re: SVS SB13-Ultra Owners Thread

Disappointing for sure and a cautionary tale for all.

Rest assured, based on all comments I've heard and in my own experience, SVS will take care of you!

I think if a competitor's sub performed...

Re: SVS PB1000 and SB1000 Subwoofer Review Discussion Thread

Yes, based on my experience with my PB10-NSD, I had no doubts that the SB13-Ultra would fit my needs.

I'd always wondered how the PB13-Ultra would sound in my system, however was concerned with...

Re: SVS PB1000 and SB1000 Subwoofer Review Discussion Thread

I listen to a lot of music and belong to an audiophile group. Virtually everyone from the group has remarked that they seriously have to look into the SB13-U to add to their systems, many of which...

Re: SVS PB1000 and SB1000 Subwoofer Review Discussion Thread

Thanks for the review Jim. I've been recommending SVS subs to several friends and wondered how the new entry level subs performed.

Prior to my SB13-Ultra, I had a PB10-NSD which I was very, very...

Re: SVS SB13-Ultra Owners Thread

Congrats on your new purchase!

Though I haven't tried to unscrew the feet from my SB-13U, I remember that they were easily removed from a previous SVS so should be the same and won't be needed on...

Re: SVS PB13-Ultra Subwoofer Review Discussion Thread

Here's what Ed Mullen wrote back:

"(The) SB13-Ultra driver weighs 42 pounds on our certified and calibrated shipping scale.... 55 pounds (for the PB driver) is a guesstimate on my part - it might...

Re: SVS PB13-Ultra Subwoofer Review Discussion Thread

I would think that the basket would make up most of the weight along with the magnet which I wouldn't think would be that much different, but I could be wrong in this assumption. :huh: At least I...

Re: SVS PB13-Ultra Subwoofer Review Discussion Thread

I heard about 55lbs as well, however when I asked Ed Mullen, he said the driver in the SB13-U weighs 42lbs on their calibrated scale. I would expect the PB13-U driver would weigh the same?

Re: SVS PB13-Ultra Subwoofer Review Discussion Thread

With the flexibility with them being slightly smaller, dual subs can be placed more optimally to eliminate room nulls, etc. Also the big thing with the SB13-Ultra is the accuracy they add when...

Re: SVS PB13-Ultra Subwoofer Review Discussion Thread

I'd suspect that because of the very large enclosure, there is a significant amount of internal cabinet bracing. I've read that many owners have no issues with things that are placed on top of the...

Re: SVS PB13-Ultra Subwoofer Review Discussion Thread

Yes. As I said, I was very impressed with my PB10-NSD which was their previous entry level sub. If the nedw ones perform anywhere near the PB10, and I'd expect them to at least come very close, I'd...

Re: SVS PB13-Ultra Subwoofer Review Discussion Thread

Even my SVS PB10-NSD was impressive. Matched or beat the subs I'd heard from other manufacturers going for double or more the price!

I'm interested in how their new entry level PB and SB-1000...

Re: SVS PB13-Ultra Subwoofer Review Discussion Thread

Thanks for the review. As the size of the PB Ultra isn't very wife friendly, I purchased the SB13-Ultra. Love its musicality which I believe is superior to the PB, and though I know the PB has more...
