Exclusive 13.5" Ultra Driver - Optimized For Sealed Applications
To equip the SB13, SVS’s audio engineers started miles ahead of other subwoofers. Their advantage? They found 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 outcome 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.

Sledge Amplification – Intelligent and Sophisticated Power

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 up with other SB13 Ultras for a multiple subwoofer configurations.
