I have a Ultra/2 and a Plus/2. They are in different locations in my room.

I have a SMS-1 and everything is calibrated. I do tend to get more volume out of the Ultra in really deep bass scenes.


Heres my question. Both have the same box, both have the same amp. Would it be a smart upgrade to move one of the Ultra woofers? So each sub would have a Plus woofer and an Ultra woofer?


I may not be really seriously considering this, but it could be done easy enough.

This is a question for Ron Stimpson at SVS. I can't imagine he would advise you to take this path.


Any time you have 2 different subs in one room you may experience exactly what you are hearing.


The real question is just because the Ultra has a little more power at the lowest frequencies when you are watching a movie should you start switching drivers from one box to the other?


Think of each design as a total system, why would you want to mess with the design?


Sounds like you need something (else) to keep you busy during the winter

Well I WAS going to create a four driver, front firing monster....



It really was an idea. If one can go low, and one can go loud, putting

the two together could give you the best of both worlds, right??


I have e-mailed SVS, I'll share what they say!

Why not sell the SVS subs and buy better DIY drivers/amps period? Build an IB array or manifold with a 4X18 array and have extra cash for the weekend



Honestly, if you are going to go down the DIY path. Simply sell the SVS stuff because you should do DIY right!!
