The accolades keep coming for the 16-Ultra Subwoofers, and this may be the most prestigious yet! Recently, the PB16-Ultra was announced as the recipient of a 2017-2018 EISA Award as the Best Home Theater Subwoofer in the world, based on voting by judges from nearly 50 audio magazines in 22 countries, including Stereophile and Sound & Vison in the U.S.
This is the highest honor an AV product can receive globally and only one subwoofer is awarded each year, so we’re thrilled! In describing the subwoofer’s performance, the EISA judges proclaimed, “A concrete fist inside a velvet glove, the PB16-Ultra is a subwoofer fit for the finest of home theaters.”
In other award news, the SB16-Ultra Subwoofer earned a CE Pro Best Award as the top subwoofer of 2017 based on voting by professionals who install home theaters and audio systems for a living, a highly discerning bunch.
