  • Dtown Reviews the PB16-Ultra Subwoofer

    "This subwoofer kept surprising me again and again, he just didn't give in, he was present, contained and accurate. What makes him so good is the fact that his bass is so true, so accurate and fast, with excellent impact capabilities. He knows to be polite and strong, the Ultra 16 does not just come to show a large amount of boomy bass. That’s not the name of the game, but it knows how to play correctly with precision and impressive sound quality. These capabilities are very difficult to get from any other subwoofer."

  • 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

    "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."

  • 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."

  • AVSForum Reviews the PB16-Ultra

    "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."

    "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."
