    I am having a hard time deciding which to buy. I like the extension of the 16-46 and also the price, but the Ultra seems to be calling my name with its higher output.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks,

    Mike

    BTW I will be using an NHT SA-3 amp (330 W RMS into a 4 Ohm load)

    Thanks,

    I'm having the same problem I will be ordering
    on monday. I am just waiting on some reviews on the
    16-46 I am sure we can't go wrong with any one that
    we choose but still hard to decide.

    That must be sweet but I will only be ordering
    one sub due to room constaints. have you listend
    to only one sub yet and still get great output?

    tryed one at about 115 db no where as nice.having two subs in the same corner gives you all kinds of extras.

    Mike-

    The Ultra is no slouch in the extension department--I can vouch for that!!

    Andy is right.

    With good corner placement you are looking at room-reinforced response that'll blow you away to 14-15Hz.

    Add one of the new SVS Port Blockers now included with the Ultra (soon to be available to the early Ultra adopters for the low low price of $4.95 plus shipping ;^) and you are looking at trimming upper response a bit but picking up another 5-6dB at 14Hz. This is some seriously deep stuff and only a few rare passages in DVD would dip lower.

    The Ultra's remain the top performers but no one should feel like they give too much up by "settling" for a Plus series SVS.
