Oh man,
Just when I thought I had it narrowed down to the 20-39 or the 16-46 pc+....you come along with this behemoth!Posted Image
Tom or Ron, how does PB2 compare to the PC+ line? I showed the wife yesterday your website yesterday and at least from the pictures, the pc+ passed the WAF!!!
Maybe her focus was that little area of the screen that said "price : $825.00" because her responce was

The pictures look great! How would two of these compare to the B4-Plus? Also are there any plans to release a PC Ultra?
Thanks,
James

Thats a good idea James E M, I would love to get a 16-46 PC Ultra if such a thing existed ;-), would that be possible anyone? Or is there a reason why such a thing couldnt be made? who knows., maybe TV or Ron will respond.

The closest PC+ sub to the PB2+ would be the 25-31PC+. They both are designed for optimum output in the 25 Hz and above range, with tuning capability (with some loss in output) below 25 Hz.

In sheer output, the PB2+ will be just shy (maybe 2 dB) of dual 25-31PC+, in any given tune mode (25, 20, 16).

In stock tune, dual PB2+ would have equal driver displacement and 50% more port area than a single B4+. I think dual PB2+ would outperform a single B4+ by probably by 2-3 dB in any given tune mode.

With that said, the power amp for the passive B4+ could have some slight bearing on the outcome. Dual PB2+ would be limited to 1800 watts or so, whereas the B4+ user could wick that up a bit into the 2500 watt range and possibly regain a little ground (maybe a dB or so).

In the end, I'd still give the nod to dual PB2+ over a single B4+. And that's REALLY saying something since the dual powered PB2+ will check in around the same price as a single passive B4+. If you have the space, the dual PB2+ would provide a simply staggering performance value.

I think the closest you will find is either the 16-46PC+, or a single passive SS, which is essentially an Ultra driver in a 16-46 sized custom fabricated wooden laminated enclosure.

I don't think I'll even attempt to get two of things by my wife. It would never happen. However, I did just get the okay for one.Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

It would be great if I could get a powered SVS 16-46 version with an Ultra driver in it, I really wouldnt want to spend all the extra money to get an SS, (with the wood and all) I wonder if i ask real nicely if they would make one for me? lol

SVS does make custom order subs. Time to order is longer, and I'm not sure the warranty is the same. It would probably have to be a passive model, as the powered models must go through all sorts of fire/electrical safety certifications before being OK'd for regular production.

I'm not saying for sure a 16-46 CS Ultra is in your future, but it can't hurt to ask Tom and Ron - more accomodating people you will not find.

Well, you can plug one of the ports on the current Ultra. Though I don't think it's necessary, as the Ultra seems to defy it's on stock tunig point by a couple of hz.

I believe an Ultra has about a 2db advantage over a 2039 CS+. A 2039 CS + has about a 2db or so advantage over a 1646. If this is accurate, it would lead me to believe that an Ultra with one port plugged would have comparable output to the 1646 between 15 and 20 hz and play louder above those frequencies.

Although you pay SVS a premium (by industry standards it's not much) for an Ultra, I've always felt, as far as SVS cylinders are concerned, that the Ultra is the true switch hitter of the bunch. Meaning, in it's stock tune, it plays very close to the 2531 in sheer SPL output and plays very near the 1646 in spl extension. This my opinion as I've not done any side by side testing to validate but the conclusion is drawn from professional and independent reviews.

Hey Tom Grooms, By any chance did you hear any release date timetable for a PC Ultra? (I hope your not pulling my leg;-)
And if by any chance did you hear also if a PC Ultra would come in different sizes? (like a 16-46 for example?) Any info is helpful, thanks. -Chris-

Chris,

The hoped for release time frame for the PC Ultra is this summer and it will only be available in one size. Price <$1500.

Where did you see that at? I think I am blind because I do not see a price associated with it?

The $825 was for the 20-39 plus.
The new sub happened to pop up when I refreshed the pagePosted Image
In all likelyhood ill probably get the PC plus, just cant decide between the 20-39 and the 16-46.

Damn! That's a very nice looking sub. I can't wait to hear what the future owners of this product have to say about it.

Let me guess, they'll say that it's "good". Posted Image
