JohnnyG, a pairI have been the owner of a pair of SB-13 for about 7-8 months now and are still impressed by they overall performance. Great looking subs in a small footprint. :clap:
Im seriously considering a 2nd SB13 ultra, i absolutely love mine. Mine is black ash but they look so good in that gloss finish. awesome system mate.Thanks hyghwayman, me and my 11 year old boy are really enjoying the room and the subs every time we watch a movie. I have been moving they around and finding the best spot for them. I have them setup in the room 1/4 from the sidewalls at the front wall. I will take some new measurements in this positions to see if my ears are not lying to me. I have Gik Basstraps in the corners (last picture) and doing a little eq to flatten out the peaks, this is done by an Antimode 8033 which is a great little box.
They offer some of the best value and performance in the subwoofer industry. Not to mention customer service and that trade up policy is outstanding! Congrats and enjoy.After months and months of trying to find just the right subwoofer for my situation, I finally found it in the SB13U : ) First was the HSU ULS15, which I had hoped would match my dark cherry ML Motion speakers ... The unit I received was instead a plum color, so far from what I was hoping for, I didn't even give it a listen ... Swallowed hard, paid $230 for shipping both ways, and turned to SVS. I was also looking for a sub for my son as well ... First up was the SB12NSD, then a pair of SB2000s ... James then expressed a preference for ported sub ... Next up, a PB2000. I was quite impressed with the LFE capabilities of the ported SVS ... Eventually, we ended up sharing dual PC12+s. After deciding on a new home last summer, I upgraded to an outlet PC13U. But after thinking about how I rarely experience many LFE opportunities in the movies my wife and I watch, I began to think about the sealed sub route ... With some saying there is and some saying there isn't a difference between sealed and ported in regards to music, I decided to call SVS and see what they said. Darren assured me that, indeed, there is a noticeable differences between the SB and the PC for music ... He said I'd find the SB13U tighter, quicker, and providing more detail while listening to music ... And I'm here to say he's right : ) After thinking about for an hour, I called back and arranged an upgrade swap for the following day after work ... With the PC13U in tow, I arrived at SVS the next day and brought home a new SB13U. It does indeed provide a noticeable degree of improved detail for my music ... Thanks to the unparalleled audition and upgrade policy offered by SVS, I've been able to find just the right subwoofer for my HT. My son, by the way, is quite happy with his PC12+ ... I encouraged him to consider the SB13U upgrade as well, but so far he's declined my offer.
