SpareChange Reviews the PB16-Ultra (Youtube)

"It can slam you hard in the chest or gently move the hair on your arms. For a subwoofer of this size, it handles transients amazingly, almost like a sealed subwoofer. And at the price, you simply won’t find a better subwoofer performer."

PB16-Ultra Subwoofer Receives the European Imaging and Sound Association's EISA Award

PB16-Ultra Subwoofer Receives the European Imaging and Sound Association's EISA Award

"This sub is insanely good… and two of them? Off the charts! I can’t speak highly enough of the sub’s integration offerings, especially when used with software such as Room EQ Wizard – Bravo, SVS! And taking the subs beyond reference levels isn’t a problem (I was never able to reach a breaking point). The crossover from subwoofers to speakers was undetectable, blending with a seamless grace that truly picky enthusiasts would appreciate. Super clean bass that thunders with precision."

Home Cinema Choice Reviews the 16-Ultra Series Subwoofers

"Fear-inducing SPLs. Bass that you feel as well as hear. Delicious weight and scale, without a trace of distortion…beauty of its tone to bathe in…a full-bodied experience. It’s jaw on the floor stuff."

Subwoofer101 Reviews the Dual PB16-Ultra Subwoofers

As close to real life as I’ve ever heard. For an ultimate home theater, a pair of PB-16 Ultras deliver a wall of bass that remains comfortable while exhilarating. A little scary, sure, but incredibly fun! This is what a home theater Mega-Subwoofer should be!

The Master Switch Reviews the PB16-Ultra

"Within minutes of testing it for the first time, we loved it unconditionally. Watching a movie through a 5.1 system, or listening to music, is revelatory and is some of the best fun we’ve had with a piece of audio equipment. The PB16-Ultra is the single best home subwoofer available today."

"It feels like a major earthquake is occurring…You can push the driver to legitimately scary excursion levels, seemingly on the edge of what’s mechanically possible...Listening with no EQ, and there’s little motivation to do anything."

"SVS has taken clean deep bass to another level…the cleanest and loudest bass in such a deep frequency that can be physically generated. I can’t think of any subwoofer that has this degree of sophistication…the PB16-Ultra pushes the envelope in every respect."

"Competes with top-performing subs costing twice or more their price. The kinetic energy reached deafening reference listening levels…I’m surprised it didn’t set off the Earthquake Detection System… My jaw was stuck ajar—man, I love good bass! Very Highly Recommended."
