SB16-Ultra and PB16-Ultra Subwoofers receive Sound & Vision's Top Pick of the Year Award

SB16-Ultra and PB16-Ultra Subwoofers receive Sound & Vision's Top Pick of the Year Award

"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."

Sound + Vision Reviews the PC-13 Ultra Subwoofer

"The SVS PC-13 Ultra is one of the best subwoofers you can buy."
"It offers a range of sound characters to suit different tastes, enough digital features to optimize the sound for any room, and enough power for any conceivable residential application"
"The combination of the three sound character options with advanced DSP capabilities and the PC-13 Ultra's sheer muscle gives you the ability to get pretty much any subwoofer sound you could want."

PB12-Plus Sound+Vision Magazine Editor's Choice 2010

PB12-Plus Sound+Vision Magazine Editor's Choice 2010

Sound + Vision's Brent Butterworth reviews the PB12-Plus. His take: "Innovative company" "...the PB12-Plus delivered perhaps the most detailed, subtle performance of all these subs."
"Probably the best deal going on a high end subwoofer."
"From its ungodly output capabilities, true 20Hz extension, and ability to play clean and distortion free, the PB12-Plus DSP has truly earned the right to be called a "subwoofer."
"This superbly-built sub includes quality amplification, a sweet-sounding 12-inch driver and plenty of adjustability."

Sound&Vision Reviews the Subwoofer Isolation System

Sound&Vision Reviews the Subwoofer Isolation System

"…a high-tech hemorrhoid pillow to cushion the sub. This produces less rattle and cleaner, tighter bass and helped to attenuate a pesky window rattle I’ve been fighting for years."

SB13-Plus Sound+Vision Certified and Recommended 2011

SB13-Plus Sound+Vision Certified and Recommended 2011

Sound + Vision's Brent Butterworth reviews the SB13-Plus. His take: "...nothing but lean, deep, powerful bass. I just couldn't make this thing distort..." "...the SB13-Plus can keep up with its super size brethren..."
"I cued up tracks from showboating bass players ..."yet the SB13-Plus portrayed them all beautifully, with plenty of punch and perfect pitch definition."
"The result is a sub that never ever gets close to sounding like it's reaching it's limits and is as bomb proof in normal day-to-day abuse as it's possible to be."
