A little bit of REW ... My son and I ran the REW for frequency response (for 9 different locations) and that was about it - no waterfalls or other type of measurements - too involved for me.
My son's advise is, anyway, to trust my ears anyway ... in that respect (despite a dip or two in the REW graph), the SB13ultra sounds great everywhere it needs to.
It sounds great in the MLP, over at the computer desk, at the dining room table, and even in the breakfast nook in the kitchen (I ran a 6th speaker cable through the living room/kitchen wall for a 6th speaker (mono) in the kitchen (employing 'multi channel stereo' for listening to music).
The bass response sounds great in all these areas ... and the music in question has a lot of bass and sub bass in it (e.g. Trashbat, Vaun, Congi).
And there's power to spare as well ... Not sure the SB2000 could measure up in an area as large as mine, but the SB13 is more than up to the task.
having a speaker in the kitchen along with good bass response from the SB13U takes visiting with my wife while she makes dinner to a whole new & better level.
Interesting note ... I first set the crossover for the 6th (mono) speaker at 60Hz, which proved to be way too boomy ... raised the crossover to 90Hz and ... viola !!!
Additionally, about the only place where there is a significant overall null, is at the kitchen counter where she's slicin' & dicin' ... no bass, no biggie for her :-)
