doesn't look too bad - it is large though. Does SVS allow for auditions any other way other than buy/ship/return?

Ok Ive seen what i need to see. The tube will be way too large for my space - SO back to HSU- though SVS side, should I start looking at the 10, or the 12?

Well, this was posted in another thread......


Here are Ed's reviews of both subs, same conditions.

HSU STF-2 10% THD Ground Plane 2 Meters (add 6 dB to obtain 1 meter values):


20 Hz: 74.7 dB

22 Hz: 80.9 dB

25 Hz: 91.7 dB

32 Hz: 99.5 dB

40 Hz: 98.8 dB

50 Hz: 104.8 dB

63 Hz: 106.9 dB

80 Hz: 104.7 dB


20-80 Hz: Average 95.3 dB; Output Linearity 89%

22-80 Hz: Average 98.2 dB; Output Linearity 92%

25-80 Hz: Average 101.1 dB; Output Linearity 95%

SVS PB10-ISD 10% THD Values (Ground Plane 2 Meters):


20 Hz: 93.9 dB (8.0 % - amplifier limited)

22 Hz: 96.9 dB (2.7 % - amplifier limited)

25 Hz: 102.2 dB

32 Hz: 104.1 dB

40 Hz: 105.8 dB

50 Hz: 106.7 dB

63 Hz: 105.7 dB

80 Hz: 104.0 dB


20-80 Hz: Average 102.4 dB; Bandwidth Linearity 96%

22-80 Hz: Average 103.6 dB; Bandwidth Linearity 97%

25-80 Hz: Average 104.8 dB; Bandwidth Linearity 98%



The PB10 certainly has quite a performance advantage below 50Hz or so.

That is understandable - But i'm actually looking at the vtf-2 mk2 Looking for values right now...

I think the VTF 2 Mk2 is essentially equivalent to the STF-2 in max extension mode (25 hz tune). The 50 watt difference in the amps isn't very significant to the overall output.

How come you've got so many units of SVS at your disposal?
Their actually options I have ran in the past except for the dual PB12-Ultra's out in the main and the 22 Hz tuned PCi in the den. I have boughten and sold other subs from other companies also. It's my intention to stick with the dual Ultra's until they (SVS) come up with another option that I find to enticing to pass up, but I'm not holding my breath on that one. It's a hard act to follow!

Are you looking for the best value or cheapest sub? Theres only a $30 difference in cost between the STF-2 and the PB10-ISD. Imo the numbers bare out the best value here hands down, but your most definitely entitled to your own view.

Easy answer to this, just go with two UFW-12's and two VTF-3HO, for four subs.

To think the answer has been under my nose the whole time. ;) Considering both subs haven't made their debu yet, maybe I better hold off for now.

But wait! Next year there is a really cool, super secret sub from Vaporwarez that is going to be MUCH better than anything coming out this year...


But wait! Two years from now the MOST fantastic sub ever conceived WILL finally be conceived by Dr. Rontommarkbruce...


But wait! Three years from now...

Should we discuss what SVS will be coming out with in three years from now?:) Na! I really have no idea, but I do know TomV is cooking though.
