  1. New PB13 Owner

    SVSound
    Hello. :wave: New to The Shack and a new SVS PB13 owner as well. By far...the best subwoofer we have owned in our HT. Looking forward to sharing ideas and learning more about getting the most out of our sub. I'm very interested in calibrating as it is plugged in with "out of the box"...
  2. Question about the subsonic filter on PB13 Ultra

    SVSound
    On the back of the PB13 Ultra the subsonic filter setting is suposed to be used when plugging the ports, can this not also be used as a straight filter to avoid excursion below the subs ability meaning keeping it from reproducing anything below what you have the selector set for? The reason I am...
  3. My First REW Measurement with PB13

    REW Forum
    Hi I just bought the PB13 ultra sub and this is my first proper sub (previously was using bose acoustimas module as the sub). I tried configuring the sub without any proper tools and was some what satisfied with the results. I just bought the Radio shack SPL meter and so decided to do the REW...
  4. Best connection for SVS PB13 Ultra: RCA or XLR?

    SVSound
    Having the choice of using either the RCA or XLR pre-outs of my processor (Onkyo 886 Pre-amp) with my PB13 - Ultras I would like to know which one is the "best" option. Cable length is about 10 feet. If the PB13 internally is an unbalanced, single-ended design and just converting the balanced...
  5. Have I damaged my PB13

    SVSound
    Hi all. I've just received my PB13 last week. What a great masterpiece it is :) Last night I was watching Kung Fu Panda on Blu-ray. My gain knob was originally at 12 o'clock position and I upped the gain to about 1 o'clock on the control for this movie (Simply because everyone said this...
  6. Grill on a SVS PB13 Ultra

    SVSound
    On the PB13 Ultra that I have I still have the cloth grill, I like the looks of the metal grill that is now available for it. Is this something I can get from SVS? and at what cost?
  7. PB13 Room Compensation

    SVSound
    HI all, have had my Ultra for a week now and am really thrilled with it, was just wondering what the general consensus is for the room compensation......my HT is 2700 cu ft and i currently have it on large, does this restrict output? Its already ******** awesome. Thanks in advance
  8. pb13 ultra adjustment

    SVSound
    Just to play around, I turned on the crossover on the sub and lowered it to around 90 ish to see if any change in sound. Slight change, seems a little tighter, with more emphasis on the lower stuff. I will have to listen to a variety of music and movies to see. Most advice I have read was NOT to...
  9. My in-room PB13 measurements + interpretation

    REW Forum
    Hi, Yesterday I finally got some time to measure around my PB13. The most important reason was I wanted to check if the SVS was positioned well against the wall. (since I'm about to construct a piece of furniture that would make the current position of the sub rather permanent...) Basically...

  12. pb-13 in big room!

    SVSound
    Anybody running just one of the PB13 in a room similar to 20x22 with 16' vaulted ceilings and opening up the the rest of the house? I have it in the rear corner behind the couch for best results. I am afraid the room is so big that the crumbling bass that people talk of with only be accomplished...
  13. YAY! two PB13 Ultras for me!

    SVSound
    it's official, I am now an SVS customer! ordered two PB13 Ultras - though I won't get it til April. (shipping to the Philippines takes 30 days + the backorder of SVS) NOTE: this in no way means I don't want to win the Ultra Contest from the Shack - I want to win that one for my "other" HT :)
  14. PB13 BASH AMP - Input levels <-> GAIN relation

    SVSound
    Small technical question from my part. On the PB13 BASH amp, is there any specs on howmuch the RCA input signal can/may be before clipping ? (I guess in mVolts peak-peak) So the GAIN "works in conjunction" with the level that you input on the BASH and together they represent an amount of total...
  15. PB13 delivered today - but not getting the results...

    SVSound
    Hi, I was very happy to receive my PB13 today. It was shipped in excellent condition and the glossy black finish is superb! Excellent craftmanship ! I was really expecting the woooooooooooooooooow effect after I placed the unit in the corner of the room. This room is quite large lengte : 12.2...
  16. Setting CrossOver freq high using the PB13

    SVSound
    Hi, My PB13 is beeing shipped from Norway tomorrow, I'm very, VERY excited! :raped::neener::jump::gah: I'm looking on how to integrate it with my DefTech ProMonitor 1000 bookshelfs & center. The fact the PB13 has a very linear response up to 200Hz made me wonder why not set the X-over on my...
  17. PB13 vs PC13 Ultra

    SVSound
    I ended up getting the PC13 based on the WAF and she loves it I really wanted to get the PB13, but I was wondering how much of a difference is there in sound quality and/or output?
  18. Nice review for PB-13

    SVSound
    Hopefully this is okay to post here. http://www.hometheaterspot.com/fusionbb/showtopic.php?tid/139313/
  19. PB13 Placement/ Color choice for my house?

    SVSound
    I posted some in the PB13 starts shipping soon thread, but didn't want to take that off course. I've got one on order(textured black) but really don't know how its going to look. Its rather large compared to what I have. Also, I really didn't want to spend much more on the finish but if you...
  20. How would dual SVS PB-13 Ultras compare to a single JL f113?

    Home Audio Subwoofers
    I currently have dual f113s in a 6000 cu ft leaky room (effective 7000 cu ft) and I should say the performance is astonishing. The subs are operated in dual mono mode placed on either side of the room as that gives me a flatter response, larger sweet spot and more uniform pressuirization across...
