Official SVS Ultra 13 thread - Page 271

post #8101 of 10323
If ur a bassnut (like me) which I'm sure most of you on this forum are, I like to sit where the bass peaks. In my particular room that amounts to 3 distinct locations of varying degrees of intensity.

Usually I pick the most intense location. This gives me the advantage of mega bass without having to crank/stress/overdrive the sub drivers.

Tradeoffs like imaging and sound stage occur, but I accept that because I"M A BASSNUT!!!!!

Also whats this ultra16 im hearing about?

I spoke to one of the salesmen this week and found out some very interesting info. I asked him that I was a little hesitant about getting a PC13 Ultra since the Ultra 16 should be out soon. What he told me was that the Ultra16 will not have more output than the current Ultra's since it is a sealed box design.

I don't know how much of this is a salesman trying to make a fast sale or is SVS going the way of the sealed sub "better behaved" design? Either way, it is frustrating that nobody has the new design and can do some comparisions on it. I am expecting it to be better controlled, but I wonder if it still goes as low?
post #8108 of 10323
The SVS salesman is not looking for a fast sale. That is not their style at SVS. The 13Ultra is likely to remain their output leader for some time to come. Large ported subs are simply more efficient. The sealed 16 Ultra will likely extend deeper than the 13 Ultra in ported mode, but the ported sub will have more output around it's tuning frequency.
post #8109 of 10323
PB13 Ultra FTW Seriously the new sealed 16 should be a little tighter and more accurate imo and I think SVS was shooting you straight they tell it like it is and I also dont think its going to dig as deep as the PB13 and I think the PB13 is very accurate also along with being musical its a great balance of brute force and finesse . I just love my Ultra and My Plus !

The studios were great speakers but I honestly beleive I moved up at least 2 levels up or more in everything, low volume clarity amazing, mid bass amazing, low end amazing and the more volume you give it the more defined it becomes.Now keep in mind these are just my feeling and what I hear and everybody has there preference but for me these speakers are the best I've ever had by a long shot and the only speakers I didnt get the what ifs and second thoughts . These new refrence series II line the highs are very smooth and the speaker is so dynamic its unbelievable im hearing things in the movies such as Avatar I've never heard before all my CD's sound like I went from a 8 track tape to blurays. Klipsch nailed it on these speakers I can tell you that and I was even impressed with there new RF82II's I auditioned but these 7's said take me home and just filled the room with colorful but true and accurate sound !

Been comparing your RF7II to my studio 100's v2's (dual 8.5",6.5" mid,1"tweet.The boxes are almost the same size Mine are a bit heavier (110 lb). I would think a similar sonic response between the two would be the result.

post #8120 of 10323
Normalcy with subs is to have one hidden box, placed out of sight regardless of optimal placement, that's tiny and not too loud, with furniture placed to better present the room, not the movie. On AVS, having multiple large furniture sized boxes optimally placed in the room, even to the extent of rearranging furniture to help placement (or get out of a null), with furniture worked in and orientated for optimal viewing and listening to a movie (not conversing with each other) is required before asking any questions about getting better sound or more out of a system.

Let's face it we're not normal here!

At my house I get the frequent question, "Why is the couch moved forward in the room from its normal spot?" I reply, "Well, I got tired of leaning forward on the edge of the couch for optimal greater depth of bass, so I moved the couch so I could lean back and relax while listening." Resulting in a shaking of the head in a disapproving fashion by the lady.
Only to be followed up the next day with, "Now why is the couch BACK in it's original spot?" To which I have to explain, "Well, I got tired of the mid and upper frequency interacion of the headrest of the couch so close to my ears when I was leaned back relaxing, I moved the couch back so I can lean forward on the edge and optimize imaging and clarity of vocals." Followed again by a rolling of her eyes and quickly walking off.

You have some great speakers Rampage !! Yes your wright yours are about 14 pounds heavier but you'd never know it you picked up these 7's there pretty beefy even though they went to a lighter basket I beleive on the drivers for sound quailty inprovements but anyway there rated at 250w RMS/1000W Peak there no slouches thats for sure but what i've really noticed is the low volume clarity you can still hear all the details I use to have to crank up before to notice and when you crank these up it just gets better . Again you have some great speakers too and enjoy my friend I know I am These 7II's will be with me for a very long time I have a feeling !

A friend had a pair of klipsch corner horns.The ones with the 25' folded horn as claimed by him. Talk about efficiency, you could blast out tunes driving them off a clock radio!

Hey Boarder, I hear ya. Most of my friends (days of future past) in other words a ways back think I'm nuts when they see what I've got.They don't understand how can I spend 3 times as much as their whole system just on a preamp.
