Upgraded from a PB2000 and this hits so hard it's crazy! Worth the $$$ and I can't even imagine what the ultra sounds like. Make sure you get a friend to help you move it lol.

I probably should have ordered the sealed box to make the wife happy with the size. Luckily she didn't mind and we both can't get enough of the sound. V.E.R.Y. H.A.P.P.Y. with the performance. I went from the minor leagues of subs to the pros.

I was working with the Def tech 8080ST built in subs and two polk 12 in subs in the rear of the room. Even with all that I felt something was missing. I went back and forth with my buddies and whether it was a speaker issue or a sub issue. I had always wanted an SVS sub, so I was like lets do it, 45 day return policy, what am I loosing. I received my first PB 12 Plus and after hooking it up, Immediately I noticed the difference, this is what I was missing, not bass, but clean, tight bass with super lows. This sub was more then enough for my room but already having two subs in the front and an empy space, the front stage started to look a bit lonely. I pulled the trigger and bought the second PB 12 plus and they both deliver such solig tight low fequency that it makes watching movies fun again. These are probably the best subs I have listened too and will hopefully have for many years to come. The quest for the perfect HT sound has currently met its match,

PB12-Plus Awesome!
I bought this to replace a very old (at least 10yrs) 110w Optimus subwoofer. Now, the Optimus did it's job to a point. You always new where the bass was coming from and it definitely did NOT shake the room. With that said, I bought the PB12-Plus, set it up in the front right corner, about 2ft or so away from the walls, and I am just astounded! It shakes the whole place, you can NOT tell where it is coming from, even at a lower volume! I have really been missing out!! LOVE IT!!

A pair of PB-12 plus subs
What a sub(S) should be, there when you need them and non-existent when you don't.
Perfectly in sync with what the sound editor intended, no mud and all thud!
Heck, even my wife doesn't mind the subs being on now. As she says, they "sound right."

I wanted the 16plus but got the 12plus. Wow.i lost nothing by going with the 12. Very powerful and responsive subs. I grinned when I first heard how good they sound.

Dual PB12+
Beautiful! Have dual pb12+ in a 13'x22' theater. Have a flat response from 16 Hz to 80 Hz. The room is in our basement and several times my wife thought someone was walking around upstairs because the bass was so low and clean. These are very fast, play very low with authority, and are beautiful. They make our theater seem twice as big because of the sheer power of the sound in the deep and subsonic bass. A must for dolby atmos surround systems! Svs support is also second to none! Will only recommend SVS to anyone wanting a quality speaker from an excellent company.

Dream come true!
This is the second pb12-plus that I've purchased because I couldn't get enough of the first one! Now my home theater experience is a dream come true. Blended with SVS ultra line of speakers the subwoofer(s) deliver the exact kind of subtlety and impact that I've always desired out of a home theater;. I like to listen to music at concert levels/watch movies at reference and these subs deliver. It's amazing what this sub can accomplish with just a 12 inch driver where other competitors have to use 15 inches or more. It's hard to believe anyone could be disappointed with this subwoofer (especially in dual configuration). Worth every penny!
