A "y" connector might help.
My Yamaha HD AVR has ONE RCA sub and it's 2.0 volts and I run two subs from a splitter on the back of the AVR and use splitters on both of my subs. I just noticed some the members posting they have 12 volts......... I thought it was a typo at first thinking they meant 1.2 volts. I wonder what is the PB 13 Ultra volt specs +/- to run correctly? Time to Google
My warranty replacement amp from last week failed, this time the DSP display comes ON but no sound. I talked to Jack at SVS and they are sending another free amp. I tested the driver again and it's still about 4.4 ohm and a 9 volt battery will make the cone move. This is factory spec per the SVS Customer Service Manager (Jack) This is amp #6
to have issues in 10 years.The last amp had MELTED parts that splattered small bits on the white fiber insulation, I also wonder if this white insulation is fire retardant????
This amp warranty has two years remaining as I just purchased this SVS PB 13 Ultra from the 2nd owner ( best friend James ) and I met Greg the original owner and listened to it at his house years ago, so I know how this SVS was adjusted etc. The down side of purchasing used and no 5 year warranty. I knew it was eating a amp every two years on average so when I got it (great deal). I figured the last amp lasted James almost 3 years I thought it was OK, it lasted several more weeks after I got it and now that replacement has failed in less then two weeks SIGH
So glad SVS Customer Service is great to deal with ....... I talked to Jack Gilvey C.S. Manager when I told him what this amp was doing and wonder did I have a defective driver he stopped me and said a new amp is on he way. As I was going to check the driver for him first. He said no need as these drivers are near Bullet Proof. I was correct as I checked it, glad (retired) I don't have $599.00 cash for a new driver. I had to save for months to buy this sub.
