You're going to be pleasantly surprised at how nice duals sound. SVS is definitely a great company for customer service and quality subs!

Upgraded my PC12nsd DSP to a sb13 Ultra.

Wow , first impressions are good.

I have put the SB13 on an Auralex Gramma, which works great on a wooden floor.
post #10624 of 15870
Does it fit on a normal gramma? I put my pb12+ on a great gramma because the dimensions of it were bigger than than the regular gramma.

Cool Deal on the Dual Subs!!

Dualie SB-13+ Subs in my room. One SB-13 was sensational, but TWO of them really broadened the landscape as it were, and it seems that no matter where you are in the room..(or in our smallish house) .the Bass is Clear & Crisp.

The measured in-room response in insanely good...and hints at <10hz performance. Ed Mullen ( Sb13designer) did something VERY RIGHT here!

Best Audio investment I ever made...and now? Even my WIFE is on board! She adores these SVSs!!!

Grand Slam for SVS!!!!

Man, I was gonna jump ship and get a Power Sound Audio sub as my 2nd sub, but I keep coming back to SB13U.

It's the closest thing to my SB13-plus. Kinda sucks they don't match, but upgrading to dual SB13U would cost me an addtl 700. Not sure it's worth that.
post #10627 of 15870
Hey Isdec,

I bought my First SB13+ right at the tail end of production. Then I wanted a Second one...and they were all gone.

We held out a bit, until a perfect match magically showed up on SVSs "trade in" list...and my Wife ordered it!

It looked NIB to me. I still can't tell 'em apart.... wink.gif

If it were up to me? I'd bite the bullet, sell a Kid, or do whatever to get the matching pair! It's extra money, but there will NEVER be any lingering doubts or regrets about the decision. Don't let me spend your money, but in this case? The extra $$ is cheap insurance against any possible disappointment.

It's the ABSOLUTE right thing to do!

Duals Rule!

CV

My suggestion? Talk to Ed.


Edit: Allow me to condition my responses with the comment that I have NO intention of being the typical "Fanboy", or some kind of "Shill" for SVS.

My thing is...SVS treated ME like I was the only customer they'd ever had. Nobody ever tried to "sell" me anything...and in fact? Ed himself has thrown a penalty flag on some potential purchases that simply would NOT have worked.

This is what I define as INTEGRITY.

My listening enjoyment is off the charts BECAUSE of SVS. I believe not only in the Product...but Also in the People who support those products.

Money Well Spent!

Lol. Fortunately, I won't need to sell one of my two kids. smile.gif

This is a much tougher sell to my wife than I thought. In all fairness I have bought the Revel F208s, C208, F12 (used), Emotiva XPR-5 and XDA-2 all within the last few months.

Even with one SB13+, I was able to duplicate the sound at a famous nightclub in Chicago..when they cranked it up my buddy looked right at me bc he knows I'm into audio. That was loud! But still pretty clear. So, my wife who now listens to music with me, doesn't understand the necessity.

I'll lay low until we come back from Disneyland in June (her real reason), then I'll pounce.

I really wanted to get the PSA XS30 since it was cheaper, but I need XLR in/out and crossovers etc. and while the Triax is tempting, it's not for me at 3k.

Isdec... You can get the Missus on board.

My Wife wasn't so keen on the idea of TWO subs either, until she started to think her favorite music sounded better.

My philosophy is this: If Momma wants to see Sandy Beaches & Palm Trees? Fix her a nice Strawberry Daquiri, and put NatGeo on TV. That'll hush her up, and she might even get to see some Lions & Tigers thrown into the mix at no extra cost. smile.gifsmile.gif

Costs you MAYBE 10 bucks?

I almost neglected to mention that it pays to be proactive when dealing with Wives & Vacations.

Like Audiophiles, Women too are highly suggestible creatures. An alternate course of action would be to put on that show: "When Vacations Go Bad!". A 2 hour "Docu-Thriller" that takes the viewer through all the possibilities, and offers handy tips on topics like:

Reporting a Crime in Dominican Spanish. EZ Travel Diagnosis of Stomach Parasites, and a run down on the HOTTEST Mosquito Borne Illnesses among travelers!

After this? Momma won't leave the Backyard, and something as SAFE as having TWO subwoofers will become the best thing she's ever heard of.

A bit of Free Comic Relief from Me. wink.gif



With the money you saved...get your new Sub.

It's Elementary! smile.gifsmile.gif

Have Fun all!

I don't need to ask how it sounds, but how does it sound?

Thanks AJ....
redface.gif Sorry for the late reply but I've been a little busy since my last post wink.gif my review is up over at HTS hope it's ok to link

Good eye, it is indeed the FS51 standing tall next to that beautiful sub and I absolutely love the sound in my HT now biggrin.gif
It's like I upgraded not only the sub but also my speakers too, wasn't expecting any improvements above my 100Hz crossover point eek.gif I was thinking my Pioneers would be the weak link in the audio chain and I would need to upgrade them soon also to keep up with the SB13-Ultra but it is the total opposite cool.gif I mean my speakers sounded really good to my untrained ears before, now they sing. Not only do the sub and speakers look good together but more importantly they blend / play nicely together, happy HT nut here!

So hows your 3.1 system sounding to you and have you got the side / back surrounds in yet?

Nice review. It's hard to get a good idea of your home theater space despite the diagram and photos, but it looks like a SB13 Ultra will dominate the entire floor.

Were you using the Acoustic Sounds SACD of "Dark Side of the Moon" for your first demo? That recording is a revelation and remains as good as any for audio demonstration.

The first generation of Andrew Jones' budget Pioneer speakers are astonishing just how good they sound for such a low cost, especially since they were on sale for even less much of the time. Allegedly the second generation sounds even better and most folks seem to prefer the appearance of the newer speakers, but I love the sleek dark look and flush metal grills of my first generation set. My experience reflects yours in that adding the quality low end does far more than just fill in a bit during booms and rumbles, but seem to lift the Pioneers into their natural range.

This was not such a surprise to me this time with the Pioneers since I experienced the same thing with my main home theater which has over-performing budget speakers with a PC12-NSD.

Of course a decent receiver helps, too.

Shortly after I took the SB-1000 down from the speaker stand and slotted it into the perfectly sized hole in the shelving unit on a thin sheet of foam,

1902%20Bedroom%20HT%20-%20components.jpg

which makes perfect sense to me since the shelving works a something of a riser in that it reduces vertical modes and lateral horizontal modes and is positioned opposite the (out of frame) bed, which reduces longitudinal modes. There is no concern about diffraction at the shelf boundary since the SB-1000 driver is flush to the front face of the enclosure. It's perfect, at least until it starts rattling the equipment.

1902%20Bedroom%20HT%20-%20front%20left.jpg

This afternoon I temporarily put the SP-BS22-LR bookshelves on the SP-FS51-LR floorstanders (not pictured) and configured them as high fronts, though they really aren't that high and just provide a bit more output in the front stage. This will remain the only stage until I rearrange the entire room for surround.

1902%20Bedroom%20HT%20-%20right.jpg

Following a quick MCACC, I reset all speakers to SMALL with 80Hz crossover (though you have me tempted to try 100Hz) and bumped up the SB-1000 a couple of dB.

Then it was ready for a demo with a few BDs I had handy: Godfrey Reggio and Philip Glass' "Powaqqatsi", Steven Wilson's "The Raven that Refused to Sing (and other stories)” - engineered by Alan Parsons, and Sigur Rós' "Inni".

It's not SB13 Ultra good, but it's very, very good.

AJ..
I believe Pink Floyd was from a reg. cd save on my pc as a WAV file and sounds good, may need to pick up the SACD version for comparison. I had my crossover set to 80 w/ my Bic sub but when I got the SB13-Ultra I went the the SVS site and used their Merlin tool and based on the weakest speakers (BS21's) my crossover should be raised to 120 but my Pio receiver only does 80, 100, 150 - so I set it to 100Hz and it sounds a lot better than when it was set @ 80Hz. I would recommend trying 100Hz , I'm sure glad I did. I wouldn't say the SB13U dominates, more like blends perfectly with the speakers and room / house.
AJ, I see you are using a Pio receiver, can't tell which model though it looks like mine cool.gif
post #10639 of 15870
I am currently running the older model PB13 Ultra with BASH amp in my 2000 cu ft room. I want to add a second PB13 Ultra. Any thoughts on adding the new version ultra along with my existing sub? Is there a significant difference in the driver, output, etc or will they integrate well together?
post #10640 of 15870
You may want to ask SVS directly about that but I think either a current Plus or Ultra would work well. They would have very similar frequency responses, and I think the current Pluses, with their 800W amp and upgraded driver, would have roughly the same output capacity as your Ultra. The current Ultra will have more power and thus your BASH ultra will be the limiting factor. If you go with a new Ultra, one thing you can do is level-match the subs at the listening position. This typically requires one sub to have its gain a few dB higher. You could use the newer Ultra at that position and have almost-matched duals.

The two variants will work fine together. The Sledge 1000W only has about 1.5 dB more max acoustic output than the BASH 750W and I doubt you'll ever notice this in actual use since you won't be drive either sub to its limits in that size room. We can help you with placement, integration/phasing and AVR digital bass management settings, so please reach out to SVS CS when you are ready to roll. As a returning customer you qualify for a 5% discount too - so be sure to ask about that when you place the order. Thanks.

Helps a bit. From just the pictures it's hard to tell where your solid reflective surfaces are versus your more sonically opaque walls and open spaces. Certainly you have a more complex space than the usual sealed box type rooms.

There have been so many. The 1992 remaster sounds great, but the Hybrid SACD is a new 5.1 mix at high resolution. There was no hyperbole in my description of it as revelatory. Of course you'll need an SACD player. I sometime forget that not everyone already has an Oppo to play their CD, HDCD, SACD, VCD, DVD-A, DVD-V and BD collection (and that's just the disc media support).

It's a nice cheap VSX-522-K low end 5.1 receiver, but more than enough to power the speakers at bedroom levels and last night did a fantastic job playing Vangelis' "Blade Runner Trilogy: 25th Anniversary" (until I replace disc one with the upcoming SACD from Acoustic Sounds which will be a reference disc for those who don't have the LP).

The main home theater is powered by an Elite VSX-94TXH 7.1 powerhouse.

NewEgg has the VSX-1123-K 7.1 receiver on sale for $429.99 today. Must.. not.. buy.. more.. AV.. gear.

For the record, I'm a happy customer and not a paid shill for Acoustic Sounds or NewEgg (or Pioneer or SVS)... but I'd happily take their money, employee discount, free stuff, etc.

Anyone here happen to have ( or had ) the combination of a PC NSD 12 and a PC 13 Ultra? I bought the PC NSD 12 two years ago and decided to hold onto it when I recently added the PC 13 Ultra. I have been playing around with some basic settings and depending on whether I am listening to a concert on blu ray or a movie need to adjust one or both occasionally but they seem to work together without any real issues. The room they are in is 13 x 24 x 8. I usually have the Ultra anywhere from -20 db to -17 and the NSD anywhere from 60 - 100 hz. on the crossover with the gain quite low ( it has the Bash amplifier ) as it will sound quite "hot" otherwise. Not sure if I will ever be able to get them set up perfectly but overall they seem to work well enough together. It is also nice o have all those settings on the Ultra but would the processor do a better job ( UMC 200 ) with room equalization?

Combining those two, at moderate volumes, would work relatively well as they have about the same frequency response, assuming you're using your Ultra in 20 Hz tuning. If you use 16 Hz (or sealed) tuning, then the frequency response of the subs will be significantly different in the low-end though. So, assuming the same 20 Hz tuning, problems may arise at louder volumes, where the NSD will be the limiting factor. If you adjust your subs so that they are level-matched (i.e. producing the same output individually at the listening position), then if you raise the volume, you may begin to either hear unwanted noises (port chuffing, distortion) from the weaker sub (NSD) or at least it won't go as loud as the Ultra.

The Sledge amp on the Ultra has two manual PEQs to tame room response peak -- it's the extent of its room equalization capability. The UMC 200 has automated room correction, but I don't know if it EQ subwoofer frequencies. If so, then it will be much easier to use since it's automated. Perhaps others can chime in on thi

Just adding a comment... I once had an SB12 with external EQ, and now I'm EQing dual Pluses. Basically if your AVR does not take care of sub EQ, you simply split the sub pre out after the external EQ device. So in effect you EQ the two subs as if it was a single one, after the levels are set.
post #10648 of 15870
The Ultra's with the Sledge amp also have Room Compensation.
post #10649 of 15870
Yes, you're right. But if I remember correctly, room compensation is simply a filter that attenuates the very low frequencies to compensate for room gain in smaller room.

Using this is actually against my religion. rolleyes.gif

Yes anyone who uses that...turn their man-sub card in. smile.gif
