1. 15-30hz output +1 SVS (According to the new 2017, the Cap has over a 1 db difference more than the v1 version. Cap +1)
2. warranty +1 SVS (Cap has a 3 year warranty, but are built like a tank out of birchwood (mdf for svs), use better amps ICE (SVS old tired out Sledge, and CAps are made in USA and SVS is made in China Cap +1
3. cost +1 SVS (I know some will argue, but you have to consider shipping and finish) SVS is cheaper since components are China. CAp made in USA CAP +1
4. finish/looks +1 SVS I buy a sub for headroom and LFE, not for the piano gloss. If you want something pretty in your room, get a poster. Cap +1
5. 30hz and up +1 cap
6. 15 hz and below +1 cap
ok, the new ones have a 1db difference, so at best, that would put it equal, not +1
Are they made in the use, or assembled in the USA. Where to they get there parts from ?
I suppose looks could be subjective, so that is a wash, not + to either one. Although, there is not denying the pb16 looks better, even if thats not why you buy a sub.
