What cchunter said.

It depends upon what your goals are, and all rooms are different. Are you looking for a sub for music at moderate to high levels (say between 80-90 dB) or for movie LFE at reference levels? That being said, I own an SB13-Ultra and it's in a 3,500 cu. ft. room that is not sealed off. I use it for music only and it has no problems attaining moderate and high levels. I also tested it in a room of similar size for movie LFE and it did an excellent job, but won't compete with its bigger ported brother or other large ported models. I ended up with another sealed design (different manufacturer) for that room.

I was concerned with how well it would stand up on the LFE side, and that pretty much answers my question. Thanks

I'm getting ready to download Room EQ Wizard today. I was wondering what kind of mic I would need? Will my regular room correction mic work? Oh am I am testing the PB13 and SB13. The PB is winning so far.

Hey Tom,

They'll be in about a 2,500 cubic foot room. The room is soundproofed and completely inclosed. They are currently standing at attention in my office while I wait for the carpet guy to come in about 2 weeks. These things are indeed massive! My wife is not as impressed as I am (; but they will be behind a screen and out of sight in the theater. Everyone that walks by them is blown away and thinks I'm insane! I'm pumped to fire these things up and I'll post my impressions once I do.

2 PCU 13's in a 2500cu/ft sealed room will not disappoint.

Well then ... I believe you'll have the low end of the frequency spectrum covered :-)

I just upgraded my PC12+ to the PC13ultra a few weeks ago in anticipation of our moving to a new house ... the HT will be in part of a 16' x 29' (approx. 6,000 cu.ft.) great room.

Joe ... please share with us some pics of the room when everything is assembled ... I imagine that those two ultras will fit nicely behind
the screen.

So far in testing the PB13 and the SB-13. The SB-13 is amazing! I listened to a JL e112 watching The Avengers, scrolled thru the movie for key action scenes at a local shop. The JL was really working. There's a part where Thor drops the hammer on Captain America. I wanted it to shake the earth but nothing. So I figured that part just may not have a lot of bass. Well watched it today with the SB-13 hooked up and realized that part was meant for bass. If I had the SB-13 and only the SB-13 I would have to say it is by far the best sealed subwoofer I've ever heard. It does have to work a bit but it does produce beyond what I thought it could. So after my flipping threw the movie a bit I decided to hook up the PB13. I ran the SB-13 at 0 and used the same set up for both on the processor. The PB13 was set to -7. It did not have to work at all to produce mega bass. When Thor dropped the hammer it felt like the air was being sucked out of the room. My wife and I are both agree that the PB13 has a feel of it sucking you into whatever you are watching and believe me, she really does not care about this stuff.

I upgraded from Dual sb2000s to dual SB13 Ultras, I could not be any happier. I was innitally calling SVS to purchase PB2000's because i felt that at my playback levels the sb2000's were starting to sound distorted and for HT the bass was lacking. I was ready to purchase the pb2000's and suffer slightly in the music department and pick up big time in the HT.

well not sure what came over me but before you know it i am telling SVS I called to order dual SB13s. well two big 100 pound boxes showed up at my garage door, with in an hour i had run audssey bumped up the sub gain and its total bliss. They are much tighter, dig deeper, play louder and much clearer and smoother. I am thrilled I decided to drop big bucks and buy a pair of these.

I also recently upgraded from my Polk 703's that i used for mains to a pair of Salk HT2 TL's I did get a chance to hear the HT2s with the Sb2000's but they just sound phenomenal with the sb13s. Total Audio Bliss
