”A whole different category of low-frequency sound. May well be the best subwoofer ever made.” ’Home Theater Review’

Cinema bass. In your home

The very best cinemas don’t just let you hear the bass but truly feel it and that’s exactly what the SB16 Ultra does. Reproducing bass this deep is neither easy nor cheap but with the SB16 it’s been well worth the effort and expense. A massive 16 inch bass woofer with triple ports is driven by a mighty 1500 watt amplifier for levels of bass that most homes have never experienced before.

Reference bass control
Keeping the sledgehammer power under tight control, the woofer is fitted with an 8 inch voice coil – the largest ever used in a consumer subwoofer. Combined with the Analog Devices DSP (Digital Signal Processor) this gives pinpoint precision and the highest level of control. It’s thanks to these technologies that the sub never sounds overblown and boomy.

Smartphone app control
Available for Apple iOS and Android, the SVS control app gives armchair, precision control of your subwoofer. From the comfort of your listening position, you get access to all DSP functions including volume, EQ, low pass filter, phase, polarity, room gain, custom presets and system settings. Connecting via Bluetooth, full control is possible even when the subwoofer is out of sight.

Built to stand the test of time
Featuring a highly reinforced cabinet, the SB16 Ultra not only provides resonance-free, low distortion sound but is also built to last. The double thick front baffle easily supports the massive drive unit and is in it for the long term – despite the massive bass, this is one sub that won’t shake itself to pieces. Choose between Gloss Black or Black Oak finishes for the best match for your room. A non-resonant grille is also supplied, keeping the woofer protected when needed.

The power of the cinema comes home, with the SVS SB16 Ultra.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I wanted best sub woofer for use with a traditional 2 channel Hi-Fi set up. I did quite a bit of reserch and for me this is the one unless you shop in audiophile boutiques. If you get chance to go to Richer in Leeds then contact Stephen to see if you can get a listen. It was important to me that the sub didn't dork around with those older recordings w/o much by way of bass captured. I'm into rock/pop from 60s on and a bit of EDM. Now my neighbours are too. Do try Kygo or 'Bad Guy' Billie Eilish. SVS in the US as well as Stephen were very helpful with the set-up , with my Q Acoustic 3050I (great for the price as well). I have a home cinema set up too but I have used my old REL Q400e for the LFE ( not real base anyway). All is good. I may try some fine tweaking with Mic & EQ software.May try and connect the LFE to the ULTRA at some point but not sure how to connect it. SVS had some ideas with 'Y' pieces but not sure about that.Stephen told me how to do it but I couldn't understand !
