You're preaching to the choir there; I've told Brian he needs to refresh his site, but to no avail. He's an engineer first, stylist last I'm afraid. Shame too, as I suspect he's losing business by...

It's unlikely a power surge, in and of itself, would have completely shredded the surround to that degree. Age and environmental conditions will deteriorate that type of material, so it's possible...

Not certain if that was a typo, but just in case it wasn't... make sure you're looking at the 1801 instead of the 1800.

I personally owned an SB13-Ultra for a while, so I'm quite familiar with that one. It's an amazing subwoofer with a lot of capability, but when it comes to deep bass size matters (no pun intended). ...

The ULS-15 is a very nice sub. I had the opportunity to review (http://www.hometheatershack.com/forums/speaker-subwoofer-reviews/138545-hsu-research-uls-15-mk2-review.html) one about 15 months ago. ...

A bad driver can certainly impact an amp, so I agree with KenM10759 and that it might be time to discuss a swap with SVS.

I used to own the non-dual core version of Antimode because I wanted to see what it could do. It works surprisingly well for a 'black box' type of solution. That's definitely worth considering.

New website looks much better Jeff. Very nicely done.

I did notice that the spec's are now +/-3db though, which is a change. Is that a typo by chance?

Those 3010 speakers have but a 4" driver and are rated for 68Hz - 22kHz. Did you seriously expect anything resembling bass? Physics won't allow that I'm afraid.
