Re: SVS PB13-Ultra sealed *new*

That's a pretty capable driver they have created, very impressive.
It really is Steve. I just had to try a couple out and was very impressed!! Not at just the raw power, but the SQ.

OK Stephen:praying: It's a hobby that isn't as expensive as what others might take up considering resell into the mix. There's knowing:reading: and then there's knowing:heehee:

Re: SVS PB13-Ultra sealed *new*

The driver appears to be on the same level of performance as the JL W7 driver. Very few drivers achieve this level of performance. I wonder, what is the price for a 'replacement' SVS Ultra 13 driver? :)

That driver was designed in part at least by Stephan P. who used to work for TC Sounds, so the performance is not surprising to me. probably has a useable, real 30-35mm xmax and seems to be a soft bottom design also :T.

Re: SVS PB13-Ultra sealed *new*

It is a very nice performing driver....

I have heard some news that SVS will be making some sealed subs, and I can't wait to see what they come up with. They will be creating completely new drivers for them...

From what I have heard they are poised to stomp the competition

I have heard similar news. If the drivers used are of similar quality to that found in the Ultra they will stomp the competition!

Thankfully, I can say I won't be participating in the madness this go round.... :spend: The PC13 Ultra is plenty for now.

New mains are more in my future, ... then, maybe a 4x Fi18 + EP2500 IB. Ooooooooo. :eek:

I certainly can understand that!

Oh no! I have always considered you one of the more sane individuals here on the Forums Tim. What mains are you thinking of though?

Re: SVS PB13-Ultra sealed *new*

You're very kind Steve. Thank you. Your perspective has always been a great benefit to the community.

As to choice of mains, that's a discussion to come on another day in a more related thread. Cough....Ascend 340SE's(?)....cough. :huh:

As the to IB idea, the physics, economics and simplicity just make a whole lotta sense, and I have an adjoining utility room that's a little over 20x the Vas of 4 Fi18 drivers. Also, a friend of mine is a finish carpenter who would be happy to help me with building and installing the manifold correctly.
