Yeah, that is a big room that you need to fill in with bass. As ManUtd recommended you might want to consider keeping the Plus that you have and add a second one.

Now, if you are planning on selling your Plus to fund the purchase of the new sub. Then, I would recommend go for the Ultra.

Of course, down the road when more funds are available, you can add a second Ultra to your room.

Hi I've been using my iphone spl meter and have set up the surround speakers to 75db but the subwoofer I have to increase the level very high to reach 75 level, do I have to tube the sub to that level also it should that be lower?

Hey everyone, I was thinking about ordering a pair of PB-12's and wanted to run this by those who have more experience than I do. I have read that the ported subwoofers are better for HT, but how much would I be missing out on if I went with a pair of SB-13's as opposed to the PB-12's? Thanks in advance everyone.

I have two of the PB12’s Plus, and part of me is wishing I had two SB13. Wanting them because of the look, and the larger woofer/power.

As for looking for a good subwoofer for HT, one of the things you want to look for is how low can the sub go. Being able to go below 19hz is great for HT.

This subject can go far deeper, I’m just keeping it simple.

I've asked the same question and have asked SVS about it too. Seems like the answer was more output from the Plus. May depend on the size of your room and what you are looking to det out of them. I have a Plus and am running it in sealed mode now because I have thought about adding a SB13 too. I like the sound of the sealed sub and the giant Lycan scene from Underworld was still har hitting. Music I like better as well but I will probably go with another Plus after saying all of that. I do reserve the right to change my mind in the future.

Thanks for the replies gents. I really like the idea of the subs being able to go as low as possible, and I don't think I would ever really need the level of output the ported subs can dish out, at least not anytime soon. I was merely looking at the SB-13's for the size, and of course their sound quality. Kind of like the need it and not have it versus having it and not needing it philosophy...

I think everyone in this hobby lives by that.

Your iPhone meter may not be as sensitive at the low frequencies, so your readings may be inaccurate.

Hi folks, does anyone have any experience with the SB1000 compact sub? At $499 it is a tempting choice. I have also thought about the SVS SB12, which is $200 more. I have a 14x20 rooom and the sub will primarly be used for movies, with occasional music. I have Veritas 6.2 towers and center. Thanks!
