YOU want bass, SVS has it … deep-reaching lows for which you don’t have to reach deep into your pocket, given the company’s reputation for generating loads of slam for not so much money.
The latest addition to the SVS range is the SB13 Ultra subwoofer, a sealed cube that’s unfussy about siting and integration, and generates controlled and cavernous lows through its front-firing 13.5-inch long-throw driver (optimised for sealed-box application) that’s powered by 1,0000 watts of cool-running Class D Sledge amplification. Movies or music, it doesn’t matter to the SB13 Ultra …
Best of all, you can fine tune the sub’s 20-460Hz frequency response in a variety of environments using onboard calibration tools like a fully adjustable (for frequency and slope) phase-correct digital crossover; two digital programmable EQs with adjustable frequency, cut/boost, and Q value; and a room gain compensation control with adjustable frequency and slope.
Stereo line-level RCA and and balanced (XLR) connections are provided for hooking up to a preamp/processor.
The SB13 Ultra’s cabinet is made from CNC-cut MDF panels to banish resonance – finishes available are real-wood black oak and piano-gloss black. A curved steel-mesh grille serves as protection for the driver. The whole thing is compact at 45cm per side but weighs a substantial 41.8kg.
The SB13 Ultra ships in December at a retail price of US$1,599; check with your distributor/dealer for availability.
