SVS 13" Black Oak Veneer Compact Sealed Subwoofer - SB13-ULTRA BLACK OAK

Are there 17 inches square in your home to make room for the most critically acclaimed subwoofer on the planet? The SB13 is the most popular Ultra for more than its modest stature alone. The flagship of our sealed models delivers super-hero levels of power, detail, speed and musicality. Yet, disguised in an elegant and compact cabinet it goes practically unnoticed in any décor—until it is called into action. You'll quickly find the SB13's reputation is well deserved and its value unparalleled. Mission accomplished - SVS style.


  • Sledge Amplifier STA-1000D: Intelligent and Sophisticated Power
    The Sledge STA-1000D amplifier is a perfect match for the Ultra 13 driver, packing 1,000 watts of power and sophisticated DSP control. Comprehensive and extensive menu options are accessed via an intuitive single-knob interface and easy-to-use, LCD display. This will make your set-up and integration with home theater or stereo system quick and simple. Sheer power alone is not enough. The SB13-Ultra's amplifier equalization curve has been expertly optimized. Its roll-off is gradual, transient response superb and group delay extremely low. This roll-off profile makes the most of available 'room gain' so that under optimal conditions the SB13-Ultra can extend in room to 15 Hz or deeper. Even more, these characteristics make it ideal to pair with other SB13 Ultras for a multiple subwoofer configurations
  • SVS 13.5" High Output Driver
    To equip the SB13, SVS's audio engineers started miles ahead of other subwoofers. Their advantage? The famed Ultra 13 driver. Which they then optimized for a sealed application. They revised the motor geometry, added a unique voice coil and custom gap extension plate. The result is a sealed subwoofer that delivers higher thermal power handling, more symmetrical force/displacement profile, lower distortion, and increased linear stroke. Only SVS engineers could start with the Ultra 13 driver. Only SVS engineers would push the envelope this far to deliver the clean, deep low end of the SB13-Ultra

    Comments about SVS 13" Gloss Black Compact Sealed Subwoofer:

    I bought this to replace two Def Tech Trinity subs that were so big I had few choices where I could place them. I thought if I liked the Ultra I would buy another one. Well, I don't have to. This little beauty fills my 20' x 25' Great Room with ease. It goes almost as low as the Trinities yet does so with authority and finesse. They hit hard and deep. It sounds so tight it makes my entire system sound cleaner. It integrates perfectly with my Polk Lsim 707 main speakers. So much so that I had to check to make sure the Ultra was on while listening to a U2 concert as the sound was so clean I thought only the 707's were playing. It comes set up for an AVR with bass management so once I ran the EQ in my receiver it was good to go. Too easy! Impressive is an
    understatement. With it's smaller footprint than my Trinities It allowed me to place the Ultra outside my left main speaker in a perfect spot. It doesn't bring attention to itself, yet you can't miss the beautiful piano gloss finish. I thought I would hate the metal grille, but it actually contrasts nicely with the gloss black finish. I admit, the grill had to grow on me a bit though and it obviously has. For movies, it hits hard, fast and deep. It's extremely musical as well. It's just so much fun to listen to how well my system now sounds. I'm really amazed at how much better my system sounds because of one subwoofer.

    I was afraid of replacing my Trinities because they go ridiculously low, but they can't match the clean tight bass that the Ultra gives you. I can't believe I waited so long to buy it. I've been reading its great reviews for years. I so wish I would have bought it sooner! And, this phenomenal sub is so affordable. One Trinity sub cost me twice as much. My wife is tired of hearing me gush over it already. LOL! I give this sub my highest recommendation!!!

    Service and delivery comments:

    As always was a pleasure to deal with. The sub arrived three days after I ordered it.
