Great sound and look

After reading all the professional reviews I could find and a lot of owner reviews I decided to buy this Subwoofer. First impression is the piano black finish is beautiful, not one blemish anywhere. The subwoofer is very heavy, the heavy gauge metal grill will definitely protect the speaker cone from any damage. Once out of the box it was very easy to setup, just follow the instruction manual and you will be up and listening is no time. I ran the room correcting software on my Denon AVR and the results are spectacular. The bass is there but in a way is invisible, both when playing music , watching TV and in using it with blueray DVD's the sound quality is exceptional. This subwoofer is replacing a 15 year old REL Storm III that I felt was a very good subwoofer, but the SB13-Ultra is better, the bass goes deeper and it looks great. I am very satisfied with this purchase, Crutchfield shipped the unit very quickly and it arrived in perfect condition. I can't talk to durability as I have only owned the subwoofer less than one week, but SVS has a excellent reputation and their warranty is very reassuring.

Easy to setup. Use my system for listening to classical music. I've got really good speakers but was surprised how well this subwoofer filled in and strengthened the overall presentation. I would recommend contacting SVS directly to see which model you need and for recommendations on settings.

Im no expert....more of consumer looking to upgrade from a Polk Audio 12" 250w sub which had anchored my home theatre for a couple of years. This SVS is just night and day from anything else I've been exposed to, whether it was something I owned, or something I've heard at someone else's house. Out of the box, this 100lb sub will sound great. It's basic default settings get you up and running quickly. Right now I am about 30 hours into its recommended break in and I'm amazed by its seamless performance. It's integrated itself with some slight tweaking into my 5.1.4 Atmos setup. My HT room is approx 25x15 ft. My Yamaha Receiver calibrated subs level at -5.0 db with the subs internal volume already set -10 db. That leaves me a lot of overhead room to crank it up whenever I feel necessary . It's use will be primarily music (CD/high res auto) and that is where in my option this sub shines. I fed everything from salsa, to jazz, classical, blues guitar and even "trap rap" which frequently pumps out content hovering around the 20 hz level which sends my three dogs running for dear life. Subtle bass lines sound tight and yet spacious. Classical music sounds full of intricate levels of low frequencies layered together together. Really amazing Get a Buddy to help bring it into the house if you can't convince your UPS guy and trust me when I say for the price, I can't imagine a better unit that can rattle your dishes and yet allow you to close your eyes and feel like your th

Pros: Musically, one of the best subwoofers I have ever heard. With movies, expect complaints from your spouse.

Cons: Gotta hide it somewhere ??
