SVS have replied to my question regarding SB Ultra 13 and SB12+. Basically said not a good idea.

Quote:
I have a SB Ultra 13 in the home theatre, in a 800 cu foot room (small room)

I have a SB12+ that's in the Hifi, that for music probably isn't needed as I get all the bass I need from Celestion A1 (again similar sized room)

I'm thinking about putting the 12 in the home theatre as well as the 13. Would you recommend this?

[Ed Mullen] It can be made to work, but they two subs have rather different phase responses. Another SB13U would be a better choice.

Also would you recommend putting the 12 ontop of the 13?

[Ed Mullen] No - they would have distinct cancellation at certain frequencies due to the differences in phase response.

The 13 is to the right of the TV. I could place the 12 to the left. I don't think I would run out of headroom in such a small room even with the 12" so I don't think drive 12 to it's limits

Would "lop sided" bass from two different subs be a issue if I put one either side of the TV?

[Ed Mullen] Yes more than likely. It would add bass - but it wouldn't be optimal.


Which is better in my setup stacking or either side of the TV?

[Ed Mullen] No - avoid stacking.


The only REQ I have is a 8033 cinema. I know both subs have 1 or 2 channels of PEQ however I have no way to accurately measure response.

Getting dual 13" in such a small room is probably over the top

[Ed Mullen] Properly calibrated, dual SB13U would not overpower the room - they would just result in smoother bass at more locations.

Huh I thought you made a typo, I was not aware that the SB12-Plus once was an actual SVS model.

Would it be the model that is on SonicBoomAudio's front page by any chance?

Well does that mean that mixing a sb12 and sb13ultra is not a good idea either? Now that i have calibrated the system it sounds good but the ultra is very powerful and rumbles all the time while the sb12 not despite they being calibrated to the same level...guess the ultra extends much lower no wonder that everything is shaking i think i will have to ask that question to svs too about mixing my subs...

You have individual and totalled subwoofer EQ though. If I were to have the two, one sub would diasy chain off the next one.
