HSU is slightly better than the Outlaw, Outlaw is better than the SVS then the HSU must be better than the SVS as well.
We have to be careful what we mean by 'better' here. The Outlaw has more clean output overall, but the SVS has less distortion per db. Personally, I would rather have the Outlaw anyway since the distortion would be inaudible until you are hitting very high output levels, maybe louder than the PB12 can get in the first place. Another thing is the Outlaw can really start to chuff when driving high output in low frequencies, I would guess much sooner than the PB12 given the PB12's larger and longer port. However, in those circumstances the high volumes at other frequencies can often mask the chuffing so it's unnoticeable. Another advantage the PB12 has is it has a more powerful limiter which, if I understand the technology correctly, absolutely protects the driver from bottoming out. While a user is not likely to bottom out the Outlaw, it is possible, although I have never been able to do it and I have driven that thing pretty hard.
My own preference leads me to Outlaw, but it is not a cut-and-dried matter of one sub being better than the other. We also have to keep in mind that the Outlaw is larger and weighs more. They both have their advantages, and neither sub could really be considered a poor value or bad choice.
