This is true.I think tho what i am going to do is buy one pb13 ultra first.Then down the road get another one if i need another one.I might not need 2 have dual pb13 ultras.As much as i want to have dual.For right now my room size is only 9x11 so yeah even one pb13 ultra is already overkill lmao.

It isn't. Its a very good sealed sub. It would take four to approach the low end output of one PB13 Ultra.

I agree I have a buddy that has a sb and I have a ported sub, mine goes way louder but his sounds great for sound quality and music. A well designed ported can sound great for music too. Ported usually kills sealed in output above 20hz.

With the svs pb13 ultra you get the best of both world's.You can seal the ports or have them opened.So in all realness haveing a PB13 Ultra over the SB13 ultra.Is a really big advatage.

9 x 11 is a very small room, I've got my plus in a room that is 11 X 12 and it gives a ton of bass. I wouldn't mind a second sub to clean up a few nulls, but shaking the room has not been an issue.

Speakers: SVS Ultra Towers
Receiver: Denon 2112CI
Sub: SVS 2039PCi
Room Dimensions: Heigh 8ft, 18ft by 14ft, with TV speakers setup on the wide wall, with one opening to a small dining room behind the left speaker, and another opening to a small foyer on the right wall.

I just upgraded to the SVS Ultra Towers, while I've had the SVS 2039PCi for about seven years. The 2039 was the middle of the range cylinder sub back in the day, retailing for $550.

Finally got the time to run Audyssey, and was surprised to find out that running the towers full range without a sub has slightly more satisfying bass response than when crossing them over at 80hz and using the sub.

The 2039PCi is the only decent sub I've ever owned, and obviously I've enjoyed it, since I've used it for seven years. I'm just shocked the towers do a better job in the bass department.

I was thinking of upgrading the sub down the road, either to the PC Ultra or the SB Ultra, but now I'm not so sure. Wondering if anybody has made a similar upgrade, and could comment on if I could expect superior bass performance with a subwoofer upgrade?

The subwoofer is properly placed, so it isn't a null issue. I just think the Ultra Towers provide more bass power than this old SVS sub! Surely a new SVS Ultra sub would provide better bass response right?

As an aside the SVS Ultra Towers are shockingly good and look fantastic, I'm surprised these aren't more popular.

With new technology, the speakers and a new sub will sound great together. Not many components can stand the test of time without getting long in the tooth. You'd be amazed how the newer subs sound.

SVS's outlet section is it's own commentary. Subject to interpretation of course, but over time, there always appears to be a greater number of SB13U's available over PB13U's.

My SB2000 was just delivered. I haven't done any test yet but i could tell it has incredible pitch definition just from playing the receivers calibration test tone. The sound is also very tight and detailed. This probably sounds silly just from playing a rumble sound. If anything this lets me know know how good the sub is already without even playing anything.

The SB13 Ultra definitely has its place. People who want a great sub for music. People who want a sub for double duty music and home theater but need a small footprint. It performs very well for its size, but cannot compete with good ported subs around tune.

I bought the sb13 ultra for its smaller size and not much desire for wall shaking bass. I really just want a bit more bottom end that's high quality to couple with my kef ls50's. I'm currently using a diy Dayton ultimax 15" subwoofer which sounds terrible to me, a lot of power but no quality. Once I get the sb13 ultra and assuming it meets my expectations I'll probably sell the Dayton and put my diy venture to rest.

I see everyone always worries about volume. What about sound quality? Our rooms aren't concert halls or movie theaters (well mine isn't haha) you probably have all the volume you need. For me anything 90db+ from 15hz and up is gravy.

I got dual SB2000s with my LS50s and they pair extremely well - Im sure the SB13U will be awesome.

LS50s and an SB13ultra ... sounds like a great combination :-)
