    Hey, the new box subs are great, but some of us still like the old cylinders. Has anyone heard of any new additions to the line coming our way? Maybe like a PC-Ultra (drool. . .)

    Hi Guys,

    The PC_Ultra is on the clock now. One of the first hurdles is deciding is I should go with the standard Ultra 20,16,12hz tuning options or change the tuning options to 25,20,16hz for the powered Ultra. The current Ultra configuration has been so well received by HT enthusiasts and professional reviewers alike...altering the tuning options may raise some ruckus. Then again, I think a 25hz setting would be more useful than a 12hz setting in the real world.

    Heavy is the head...

    Tom how much more powerful would a PC-Ultra be than a PC-Plus?

    I have been recommended two PC-Plus woofers for my 20 feet by 20 feet room with a 10 foot height.

    Would One PC-Ultra be able to do reference in my room at 12hz?

    Any SVS sales coming along soon:b ???

    Just a question, but have you guys thought of a PC-B4 cylinder? I would imagine it would be cheaper, and be powered!!

    And how are those SVS speakers coming along?

    Anywho wishful thinking and questions on my part
    Keep up the good work guys!

    Hi Zack,

    We are actually leaning toward keeping the tuning configuration the same. For now, we're going to proto type both configurations...and run them thru our standard measuring/listening tests. That main drawback to the 25hz option is that only leave a single 3" flared port open if you want to try out the 16hz setting. At low to moderate output levels that would be passable(barely)...but if you wanted to reproduce 16hz at louder levels you'd likely get some port noise. So I think we'll stay with the 20,16,12hz configuration...having almost 60 sq-in of port flowing with the 20hz tune is definitely a *nice to have*.

    TV,

    Any chance of seeing a "B-2" version of that "PB-2" you're working on? (i.e., I already have an amp)

    Thanks for any info. . .

    How about something REALLY radical, like a 10-60 PC-Ultra?

    -3dB at 10Hz, 60" tall, built-in 1000 watt amp, granite base plate!

    BTW, I'm not kidding. I LIKE the idea of a monster cylinder sub...
