Re: SVSound SB13-Ultra : User Review

Your welcome Asere...

I changed my crossover from 80 before to 100 when calibrating the new sub into my system based on what SVS's Merlin tool recommended. To set the crossover 30 to 50 Hz higher than the rated bass extension for each of my speakers.

I went my weakest speaker rated @ 80w, Pioneer offers only 80, 100, 150 global crossover points, so 100 seemed the best. The sound coming from my Pioneer speakers is so alive, pleasingly clean and more detailed now. Can't wait to hear it after EQ'ing the sub properly

Yes it is amazing what a nice sub can do to the speakers. They come alive with cleaner crisp sound.

Even voices sound better, more natural, all of these improvements in sound above the LFE crossover were not expected with an addition of a sub. Thinking it would be all in the lower bass and ULF areas and then my speakers would be the weak link in the audio chain but it's the total opposite.

Oh yes subs greatly improve any speakers!

That was the first thing I noticed when I upgraded to my xv15. Male voices especially sounded much better.

Nice review. It's always nice to see someone else combining the pioneers with a high quality sub.

I was told I went above and beyond what HTS ask of winners with my review but I'm glad you enjoyed it.

I can't say enough about how it has changed my audio experience. Never understood the saying, "get the best sub you can afford" before but I do now. It made my Pioneers really come alive
