I'm highly anticipating SVS' new sealed subs. I have an SB12 which I think is great, and I've been eyeing the other sealed subs from the competitors that seem great (have either more output or/and most importantly more extension). I'm looking for a second system sub which is going to replace a ported sub. I'd still like a compact form factor as it's not a large room, but I want all the extension I can get my hands on. Being from Canada, SVS is the main ID sub company I look to (with a distributor here) that I consider worth my while to buy (the others I'd have to import from the US with a lot more hassle, cost and/or potential warranty diffculties)

Are they on track for release this year? Any further hints about pricing range? Basically any new news at all?

The SB13-Plus will come before the SB16-Ultra. The SB13-Plus will (of course) have more output, deeper extension, and lower distortion than the SB12-Plus. We're not releasing more information until we get closer to pre-orders.

thanks Ed, I hope that when you are close to pre-orders, you'll be posting the information here!

I'm giddy over the prospect of these new subs.

I too am looking forward to these subs. My room has a ton of room gain, so I am pretty confident a sealed sub will work best in my room. I have been thrilled with my PB10, and am saving up for a larger more powerful sealed sub.

Now the real question is will there be a PC-16? If so, I think it should come in two finishes. The black fabric one, of course, like all the PC subs, but also because of its size a "hot water heater" finish. I'm sure it would be as large as one. Sneak it past your wife by claiming it is just a new hot water heater... :D Why the living room needs a hot water heater is another matter.

I'd be pretty happy if the SB13 could hit -3dB at 19Hz, and the SB16 should match the competition like Hsu ULS and hit down to 15Hz pretty flat but offer more output. Is that too much to ask you sub gurus?

That would give people lost of reason to consider upgrading from the 12 to 13 to 16. I like my SB12 a LOT and I don't need a lot more output but I really do want more extension. Like many people those that are considering subs like this. I don't have a huge room to fill and have WAF considerations (actually in my case it's HAF, because I like a nicely finished sub that doesn't look like a crate). To me, it's always been a cool thing to have a small box that puts out a lot.

Thanks for the update. I really wish they came in the standard black finish. For me = cheaper and more hidden in my room. Oh well, I may look at the piano black. Very nice looking!

I'm really interested in how the new sealed subs will perform. There is already a lot of talk regarding how these new subs will compare to 'other' sealed subs. I guess time will tell...

I've said this else where but I'm rather interested in what could be done with the new Ultra 16 woofer. It would be a good option for a conquest killer.lol Sense the PB Ultra 13/ 2 got back burnerd

I hope we can see that driver pic soon.

They look really good actually.

I'm kinda of curious of how wireless option... works.

Cant wait to hear the new SB16 Ultra, loved the performance of the 13Ultra, how will this stack up being sealed I wonder :cunning:

I don't think it'll sacrifice much in terms of performance! Considering they are keeping the "Ultra" moniker, it will have to keep to that same level of standard.

I had a PB13Ultra in my system for a while and absolutely loved it, effortless with lots of impact, Im sure the 16Ultra will be another hit for SVS, they really are making some good subs now and with EQ1 what more could you want :T

Really, nothin' more! SVS really seems to be hitting it out of the park with all their speakers and subwoofers. They have something for everyone, too; entry level speakers and subwoofers to High end subwoofers and soon to be high end speakers, with everything in between!
