Press Reviews

"I heartily recommend the SVS PC13-Ultra. If you're looking to add a subwoofer to a system that you use mostly for movies, but also want to use for listening to music without any drawbacks, I can't imagine that it will disappoint you."
Good Sound, Review by Jason Thorpe.
"The SVS PC13-Ultra seemed to easily handle whatever I threw its way. Bass had excellent low end extension, with no bottoming out…At an MSRP of $1,699 it is a real bargain for the performance you are getting!"
The PC13-Ultra Subwoofer Receives Sterowiseplus.com’s Editor’s Choice Award.
"So as to not mince words, the PC13-Ultra knocked me on my tail. We're talking wall shaking, glass-rattling, floor-rumbling bass... The PC13-Ultra is a fantastic subwoofer. It has tons of power, useable output well into the infrasonic range, yet remains musical."
Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity, Review by Ross Jones.
"The SVS PC13-Ultra is one of the best subwoofers you can buy."
Sound & Vision, Review by Brent Butterworth.
"Not only does this Ohio-based company make great speakers, it's also got an innovative streak a mile wide. The PC-Ultra is a daring, brilliant, and idiosyncratic product design, especially in its use of a cylinder to achieve both deep low-frequency extension and high output from a small footprint."
Home Theater Magazine, Review by Mark Fleischmann.
