The warranty is expired. Back then SVS only had a 3 year warranty.

I don't think $400 is a good price at all considering an SB-1000 is only $499

I've been kicking around the idea of adding a second sub and this looks like it would be an inexpensive way to start experimenting.
4 years old, he's the second owner? I'd offer him $300 or $350. Worst he can say is "no"

Any particular reason? Is this what they call by running the sub 5db hot?

One more thing.. is it better to raise the setting in the AVR than the volume on the sub?

Yes at last i have it delivered.. it's kinda hard to get a really good sub in here... There were some good brand earlier i saw on some store like mksound and earthquake but the mksound was no longer there and earthquake only have their mid-level sub... There is velodyne though, but it's just too expensive and drain so much power.. too bad there is no SVS dealer in here.. hope there will be one soon..

Yes this called running your sub hot. The average seams to be 3-4db's. When I watch some movies I like to bump 4-5db's to get that extra bass.

If your avr already set the sub then use the avr to raise the setting, if you do the volume on the sub then you'll have to rerun the avr speaker calibration.

If you could post a good quality picture of the amp plate, then I am sure that someone (maybe even me) will be able to indicate the appropriate connections. There should be spade connections for both AC mains input and speaker terminals, as well as smaller connections for the usual adjustable controls, gain, phase, LPF frequency, and most importantly the low level input.

Hey guys, I have a 7.1 surround setup in my theater room. The receiver is a Pioneer Elite SC-75, my speakers are Axiom Audio and my subwoofer is the SVS PB-12 Plus. The current subwoofer tune I have it set for is 16HZ and I also have the middle port plugged. I'm not sure if this is how I should have it setup for the type of bass I'm trying to achieve. I want a deep rumbling feel it in your chest bass. I'm not a big fan of loud, boomy and shake the ceiling bass. If anyone has recommendations on some of the settings I might need to change, I would greatly appreciate the suggestions. Thanks!

Hi. You might try to seal all of the ports and change the amp setting for sealed (look in user manual)...then re-run calibration and report back

yes sealed mode means all 3 ports sealed with foam cap and before you play it change on Sub amp from 16hz to sealed mode!!!! Mode ca be 20Hz, 16Hz or sealed on sub amp). Then rerun Audysey if you have AVR able to do it and you are ready to play in sealed mode!!!

Thanks for the reply. I did find the connections but they are not what I expected. My other plate amp had spade connections, as you mentioned. This one is a two prong, computer like connection. Working fine now. Thanks again.

In those cases, we close the vertical blinds and its then reasonably dark without glare.


PS: I need to take new pictures (quite a bit of the equipment and furniture in the room has already changed) and post them at the link below but I will do that when the new SB13-Ultra is in place.
I now have received my SB13-Ultra and have it installed and set up.


When I first set it up, I plugged it in and played a piece of music that I knew was bass heavy to see if the SB13-Ultra worked and to get an initial feel for it. I didn't know that it was sent from the factory set at reference level (I.e., '0'). Just about everything in the house was shaking. Walls, things on the walls, things on shelves - family room, kitchen, living room, etc. even the beer bottles in the refrigerator were clinking. After I did a ballpark calibration, I did some quick reference tests with movies and music. The bass is very powerful yet very clean. When I played he opening battle scene of Star Wars - Revenge of the Sith with my previous sub (Klipsch RSW-10D), it sounded is if something was wrong. As it turns out, it was bottoming out. The new subwoofer handled the scene with ease.

Last night, I had enough time to run YPAO on my Yamaha RX-A2010 to calibrate it. When I completed the auto calibration, I used a simple (IOS) SPL meter to see if the speakers were equally set. They were pretty good but needed some tweaking -- which I did. With it set up, I listened to several tracks of music and then several known movie scenes. In short, this sub is amazing! No more boomieness, no more muddy bass, no more bottoming out. Just clean, powerful, well integrated bass! I'm very happy!

Since it didn't happen without pictures, I've updated my room and A/V equipment pictures -- as well as my wiring diagram. Follow the links in my signature to have a look. I've also attached a small version of one of them to this message.
