It has been a long time, i am in search of comparisons (in form of excrusions or charts) between pb-13ultra with bash amps and the latest pb-13ultra with sledge 1000 D amps. According to the specifications,in terms of wattage, there are definitely some improvements in the new ultras' with sledge amps.
But i am still curious to know in detail, till what extent of lows are the new ultras with sledge amps 'better' when compared with not so old ultras with bash amps?
And, are there any drawbacks of sledge amps? those which bash amps did and sledge amps are unable to achieve?
in DEC 2009, i.e before the release of the new sledge amps, i have gone through many forums and read about pb-13u with bash as pretty impressive and competitive sub compared to other brands. But sledge amps are a shock to me after 1 year! many owners of pb-13 ultras' with bash amps in the past have approved satisfaction in terms of performance in any forums i read. since sledge amps are new, there are a few owners of new ultras' so i am unable to get the performance difference between pb-13u-bash and pb-13u-sledge. so any one who knows the differences can please reply.
I am asking about pb-13 ultra product only. thanks for reply in advance. and
sorry for my poor English.
any website/forum hyperlinks for the comparison are welcome.
Since you are in India, I would like to give you one piece of advice from my personal experience: don't buy Ultra with Sledge if you can not return it. This does not apply to us in the States - we can always try the sub and send it back if we don't like it.
I know this comment may cause a lot of questions from other members of the forum, so let me get into some details. I've been using one Ultra with BASH for a year and recently bought the second one, but with the Sledge amp.
There was one drawback in the amp I could not live with and SVS was very nice to send me a replacement Sledge first and then the old trusted BASH. So, now I have two Ultras with the BASH amps and love them.
Since the company was very, very nice to me, I do not want to go into more details and make any negative advertising to their products. The company believes that most of the customers would not notice the drawback of the new amp; so, let your ears be the judge! Maybe I'm just too picky and everybody else would love the Sledge amps.
