SVS SB13-Ultra Subwoofer

SVS SB13-Ultra - with grille

SVS has introduced their top-of-the-line cabinet-type subwoofer, the 1000-watt DSP Controlled, SB13-Ultra, which utilizes a 13.5-inch driver in a compact sealed enclosure. Designed to deliver the most vigorous, versatile bass performance in its class, the new SVS subwoofer is a low-frequency, high-output knockout in a surprisingly elegant footprint.

SVS engineers radically revised the motor geometry, added a unique, ultra-high-power aluminum voice coil, and developed a custom gap extension plate that increases linear stroke and reduces distortion. Add to that dual linear-roll spiders, a stitched parabolic surround, and the ultra-light but rigid Rohacell composite cone material of the Ultra 13 driver, and the result is an incredibly robust subwoofer with extreme excursion.

To complement these driver refinements, the SB13-Ultra employs an integrated SVS 1000W (3,200 watts peak power) DSP Sledge amplifier with sophisticated DSPs perfectly matched to the driver and cabinet, and an equalization curve optimized for enhanced transient response and to complement room gain. Although it’s rated to deliver 20Hz to 460Hz (±3dB), in the right room, with the right settings, it can easily reach down to a gun-wrenching 15Hz, without diminishing the nuanced textures and incredible transient response that audiophiles demand. Its room-size compensation control also allows the SB13-Ultra to sonically adapt to any size room, not just the labs of SVS. Power users will appreciate the two-band parametric equalizer (PEQ), yet this advanced feature is easily disabled for users who prefer to rely on the bass management of their favorite preamp or receiver.

“Its relatively compact design allows us to deliver our best technology into spaces that might not have accommodated our subwoofers before, which makes it a genuinely exciting launch for us. It’s time for a whole new audience to fall in love with our incomparable sound,” said Gary Yacoubian, SVS president and managing partner.
