This is my very first post!
So I am letting my Meridian M2500.2 subwoofer go to a very good home this week and so about to place an order for my new subwoofer.
Im in two minds however of which to go for…
I have been looking at an SVS for a long time now and have heard my friends 12/2+ a while back and was really amazed at what it could do.
So im in a quandary as to get the following…
- SVS SB13 ULTRA (Sealed Box)
- SVS PB13 ULTRA (Ported Box)
I can only install one as this time. I can accommodate the larger PB version but obviously very limited on moving it around if needed. I plan to position it between the center and right speaker.
I am using a buttkicker transducer at the moment as the M2500.2 isn't creating the deep down low that Im looking for…. I would love to however have a sub installed where I would be happy to do away with the buttkicker all together….
5m x 4.2m x 2.2m 1600cubic ft approximately.
Solid concrete on ALL sides. Carpeted flooring. Solid door that seals the room nicely.
Acoustically treated with 13 GIK panels and tri trap corner bass traps.
It would be GREAT to have your experience and advise. Especially those experienced with SVS equipment.
See pics below.
For a larger room- Ported box/cylinder
Doubt you need the extra headroom of the ported
Krell Evolution 900e x 7
Bose Jewel speakers.
Jealous of my speakers?
I would go with a ported version of the SVS Ultra. A ported version of the SVS Ultra allows you the option of plugging all of the ports to give you a sealed version, if that is what you want. The sealed subwoofer has no option for being ported.
And I would select the cylinder version, as it is nearly identical performance for $300 less. Plus it takes up less floor space, is much lighter, and is an easier shape to grab onto, so it is much easier to move.
Welcome to AVS.....subwoofers.
Unless working with a pair of reference class subwoofers, one that's placed nearfield to the MLP, while listening at +/- 0dB, that ain't gonna happen.
Why the need to lose the transducers?
What are your expectation?
