Introducing the PC13-ULTRA
The original SVS subwoofer was a cylinder design, and this unique and elegant form factor has since become an iconic symbol of SVS performance heritage. The PC13-Ultra is the ultimate expression of the powered cylinder, representing the pinnacle of SVS technology and our passion for building the most uncompromising high-performance subwoofers on the planet. The PC13-Ultra will exceed the expectations of the most discriminating audiophile and hard-core home theater enthusiast.
"I heartily recommend the SVS PC13-Ultra. If you're looking to add a subwoofer to a system that you use mostly for movies, but also want to use for listening to music without any drawbacks, I can't imagine that it will disappoint you."Good Sound, Review by Jason Thorpe.
"The SVS PC13-Ultra seemed to easily handle whatever I threw its way. Bass had excellent low end extension, with no bottoming out…At an MSRP of $1,699 it is a real bargain for the performance you are getting!"The PC13-Ultra Subwoofer Receives Sterowiseplus.com’s Editor’s Choice Award.
"So as to not mince words, the PC13-Ultra knocked me on my tail. We're talking wall shaking, glass-rattling, floor-rumbling bass... The PC13-Ultra is a fantastic subwoofer. It has tons of power, useable output well into the infrasonic range, yet remains musical."Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity, Review by Ross Jones.
"The SVS PC13-Ultra is one of the best subwoofers you can buy."Sound & Vision, Review by Brent Butterworth.
"Not only does this Ohio-based company make great speakers, it's also got an innovative streak a mile wide. The PC-Ultra is a daring, brilliant, and idiosyncratic product design, especially in its use of a cylinder to achieve both deep low-frequency extension and high output from a small footprint."Home Theater Magazine, Review by Mark Fleischmann.
