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.
