I think they do dip below 70hz or so, but I have no measurement means. Try setting the crossover to 80hz and take the centers out of the plugs. You can always put them back in if it's not to your liking.

BTW, a good review:

And the measurements:

Thanks for the links. The measurements do somewhat jive with my Audyssey results, though it does not indicate if the port was plugged... I assume not. Next time I need to run Audyssey, I will try the 1/2 plug. I would like to use 80 Hz as cross-over on all my speakers and perhaps the 1/2 plug will get me there.

I have an SVS SB2000 sub and crossover my R500's at 70hz, the R200 at the same and the R100's at 80. I think it sounds great in my 13.5' x 19' room and my guests seem amazed. Of course none are audiophile types so probably could be impressed by anything.


I do have a nullpoint listening position so know I really should add a second sub in the future.

I was running a pair of SB2000's before I went to the 16 ultras. Honestly, I liked the SB2000's better. Those are sweet little subs.

I'm very happy with the one I have for now. Since I'm really the only one listening 99% of the time, the null point doesn't affect me one bit so no hurry. I want to upgrade the suspension on my bike first as I'll get more joy out of that.

I do often wonder if the SB13 Ultra might be the best choice. In my space I really don't have room for anything larger, but someday I may turn the whole setup 90º and that could accommodate more/better subs. For now, where I have it located literally just to the left of and slightly behind the left front speaker it blends so perfectly seamless that you can't tell it's not full range speakers at work.
