Exemplary…bass with authority and slam that’s defined and informative…I had to surrender to the charms of the SB13-Ultra…The best subwoofer for the money I’ve auditioned in the last decade.

Stereophile - Larry Greenhill Reviews the SB13-Ultra Subwoofer

The SB13-Ultra's detailed, toe-tappingly pitch-perfect, stop-on-a-dime response, and its small size, low weight, rugged construction, superb finish, simple but sophisticated IFC control, sturdy drive-unit, and great customer support, all put it on my list of recommended subwoofers.

The SB13-Ultra Subwoofer Receives HomeTheaterReview.com's Best of 2013 Award

"Dollar for dollar, the SVS SB13-Ultra is one of the best (if not THE best) subwoofers on the market. Powerful, deep bass. Equally adept performance for music and moves. The only way to make it much better is to buy two."

The Poor Audiophile - Review of the SB13-Ultra

"If you’re an enthusiast who wants the speed and control of a sealed enclosure with the deep bass extension typical of a ported sub, then you’ve found your pot of gold in the SB13-Ultra...arguably one of the best (or possibly the best) price-performance value in subwoofers"

Everything Audio - John Gatski Reviews the SB13-Ultra

"Overall, the SB13-Ultra performance is so good, and its quality build and price so impressive, I have absolutely no negatives…For under $1,600, the SVS SB13-Ultra gets you a high-performance, acoustic suspension subwoofer that can handle about all the serious bass of a multi-channel or stereo speaker system."

Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity - Jim Clements Reviews the SB13-Ultra Subwoofer

"It plays loud and deep with extremely low distortion. But it also has the ability to deliver finely nuanced bass with textures and dynamic shadings that are quite rare even by today's standards... It is quite frankly an engineering juggernaut."

"…one of the very best subwoofers I have had the pleasure of spending time with… The way the SB13-Ultra goes about low end exertion is so utterly convincing that going back to most other devices seems like a bit of a letdown afterwards."
