Remember mine is only 7dB down at 10Hz in my room! Dennis
that's really good. Although only 2300cu ft, my room is an partly open area so it doesn't offer that much room gain. Corner loading it helps a lot for me.

I was actually considering the PB12+ at first and running it in sealed mode most of the time, but it didn't make sense to buy a ported sub with its big footprint and running it sealed.

Re: SVSound SB-13 Plus Subwoofer Review

Dr.Doan,
Thanks for the nice review of the SB13plus. My room is approx. 18 x 16 with a 9ft ceiling which comes out to around 2600cf. I consider this a medium size room and I was wondering if the the SB13 would be adequate for this size room and someone who is 50/50 for HT and music. Thank you.

Re: SVSound SB-13 Plus Subwoofer Review

Your room is a little larger than mine. 2 subs co-located in a corner would be fantastic. When I went to 2 subs my Home Theater turned into a movie theater! With proper placement, and alignment, one sub should do very well in your room, especially music. Have fun. Dennis

Re: SVSound SB-13 Plus Subwoofer Review

Thanks for the additional information. I appreciate it. I couldn't afford two SB13s but I may try one like you said with proper placement.

Re: SVSound SB-13 Plus Subwoofer Review

This is my first post, and just wanted to say that I have received my SB13+ and am really enjoying it.

I am getting no where near 10Hz at 7db below calibration levels but then it is new and I have not really done anything to set up or tweak it yet.

What I have noticed is a 10db plus peak at 50Hz and the PEQ1 smoothed it right down, most impressive.

This review was important in my consideration of this sub

Thanks

Stu

Re: SVSound SB-13 Plus Subwoofer Review

The SB13 has been discontinued. Anybody know why? I thought it was supposed to be one of the best sealed subs out there. Any recommendations other than the HSU ULS-15?

Re: SVSound SB-13 Plus Subwoofer Review

Ed confirmed that they are revising it. Basically a new cabinet (to align with the other models) and probably renamed to SB13 Ultra since it was already using Ultra-parts. Maybe a price increase since the cabinets are more expensive to make
