A thunderous tower of power
SVS built its reputation for outstanding performance on their original cylinder-shaped subwoofer. The PC13-Ultra is the most impressive version yet of that iconic design. As the flagship of SVS's cylinder subwoofers, the PC13-Ultra combines staggering low-frequency output with subtlety and finesse that will please movie buffs and audiophiles alike. If you have a large room that you're looking to fill with thunderous deep bass that can extend down to a mind-bending 15 Hz, then you've come to the right place.
The SVS PC13-Ultra delivers deep bass that will thrill home theater enthusiasts and music lovers alike.
A subwoofer with plenty of brawn, and brains to match
At the heart of the PC13-Ultra lies a muscular and sophisticated Class D amplifier. The amp's built-in Digital Signal Processor (DSP) dynamically controls output power to ensure you hear nothing but deep, low-distortion bass no matter how loud your music and movies get.
On-board tools for fine-tuning the sound include dual digital parametric EQs with adjustable frequency, cut/boost, and Q values, plus an adjustable room gain compensation control to help tame pesky room response issues. And, of course, you get fully adjustable phase compensation and digital crossover controls.
To make adjustments easier and keep track of all your settings, SVS put a bright, two-line LCD readout on the sub's back panel. And they also included stereo line-level RCA plus balanced XLR inputs and outputs for flexible connectivity with a wide range of audio gear, including high-end stereo preamps and A/V preamp/processors.
A ported design with sound-shaping options
The PC13-Ultra employs a bass-reflex (ported) cabinet design that allows its 13-1/2" driver to make long excursions for exceptionally deep bass at high output levels. SVS placed the sub's three flared, low-noise ports on top of the enclosure to minimize interaction with room boundaries for greater bass accuracy. They also included three dense foam plugs that allow you to customize how deep and loud the sub will play by blocking individual ports. The PB13-Ultra's strong, rigid, cylinder-shaped enclosure helps eliminate cabinet flex and resonance to keep your bass ultra-clean.
