Pure joy
Impact, power, detail, low end response, silky smooth..... the list could go on and on, but I think at this point all of the superlatives have pretty much been covered. This is by far and away the best sub I've ever had the privelege of owning, and I've had Miller & Kreisel, Pioneer, Altec Lansing, Sony, and an SVS PB-2000 in my home over the 20 years I've been into this hobby.

As a matter of fact, I'm going to nominate SVS for a few humanitarian awards. Owning one of their procucts (especially the Ultra), is like taking a bath in a tub filled with pure joy. I simply cannot stop smiling when listening to my system now.

I used the Merlin matching engine on the SVS site. After entering the room and L-R speaker info, it recommended the 13-Ultra series.
SVS just happened to have a PC13 - ULTRA

Quite simply astonishing
This is the third SVS product I have purchased.......the first two (and this one) were/are so impressive that I could not resist, when the last of my three Sunfires gave up the ghost.

The performance for the price of the pc13u is quite simply fact, it is astonishing performance at any price.......

My reference subwoofer currently is a Paradigm 15 (Reference collection).....if memory serves, I believe it was a $3499.00 dollar subwoofer just two years ago......and believe me, it was (and continues to be) "no slouch" in the performance department.......

I honestly believe the pc13u bests it in every performance category......extension, depth, weight, snap, on........especially in my room with the 16 hz plug inserted......

As much as it surprises me to do so.......I have made the decision to move the Paradigm 15 Reference to my bedroom, and use the pc13u in my living room reference system.

Congratulations on a really, really superlative product at a jaw dropping (low) price...........I have been an audiophile/videophile for 40 years (made my first speaker at the age of 12)......things in this hobby just keep getting better and better and better...........thank you for your contribution.

PC-13 is simply amazing!! I use it my studio for sound design.

While creating sound effects for my first feature film, there was one sound effect that had good amount of low freq energy. When I heard the final version, the sound effect was just unbelievable, I could hear and feel every little detail. A few minutes later, I walked into the kitchen, which is 15 feet away. I found a few bottles of spices knocked over. And there were no earthquakes that day. So it must have been PC13.

I use this for some audio and all movies. It feels lacking in power at first compared to some other subs mainly due to its very linear response. I even adjusted it to pull in more mid bass to bring back the familiar. I soon went back to standard as it truly has floor shaking power. The only challenge for it is the movie "the edge of tomorrow" the opening sounds bring chuffing out for the lowest sounds. Of course I am in a 12000 cubic foot area that hard to pressurize with one sub. This thing is literally hard to wrap your head around its out put!
