Re: SVSound PB13 Ultra

Strange - normally the pb13 with all ports open (20 hz mode) has a ruler flat FR. Something went wrong here ? Maybe the setting in the amp was for sealed mode ! FR at data-bass.com is way different.

But still - think it's great that someone like you makes the effort of this.
