There's a local that's selling 2 of his PC13 Ultras. I think I'm going to try to arrange a listen. Not sure if I can fit them in my HT, but if the price is right, maybe 1 would work.

1. Use an rca cable connect from the L/C/R preouts of your receiver to the corresponding unbalanced inputs on the XPA-3.
2. Take out the L/C/R speaker cables which are currently connected to the receiver and plug them to the corresponding speaker out terminals in the XPA-3.
3. Rerun the room eq/auto calibration from your receiver.
4. Sit back and enjoy.

BTW, the manual that comes with the amp describes this is detail.
Sounds pretty straight forward, thank you for the clarification! I'm excited to hear what these speakers can do!

Dual Ultras will be gigantic upgrade from your current SVS. If you got the room and $ go for it.

So I got the XPA3 Hooked up to these MTS-02's and my reaction..... Cannot believe the sound I'm getting in this acoustically challenged open room! My old Infinity speakers got swallowed up in here, but not these beasts. The clarity I'm getting with music is just flat out amazing! Even at high volumes, these speakers just seem to pump out the music effortlessly. It's almost as if I can hear the fingers strumming every guitar string, or hitting every piano key, and the breathe hitting the mic as it was recorded in studio! Almost as if I'm actually really hearing the music for the first time. Honestly, I am very surprised at how well these 7 inch woofers are outputting so much low end. These coupled with my Ultra sub are producing some very powerful magic in my living room! I found myself just getting lost in music for several hours last night. I cannot wait to take delivery on the MCS-02 Center, and see what this system along with the MBS-02 surrounds can do with movies...

LOL, thank you for the kind words, Just a blue collar family man who is really trying to do his best with getting some decent gear. I was debating whether to upgrade my TV, (an old 52" Sony XBR4) or upgrade my receiver, speakers, and adding an external amp! After giving it some thought, I decided my tv wasn't really all that small, and it still looks great, so I decided to do the HT sound first.I'm happy I made that decision, it really is a major improvement in sound quality! The next thing I'll do is upgrade the Display. It is a very rewarding but *expensive* hobby! I will update this week, especially when I get my center from the fine folks at SVS this Wednesday!
