Any SVS Plus vs. SVS Ultra comparisons yet?

    Are Ultra buyers wasting their money? Can they get the same practical performance, or better(?), from the 16-46cs+ as they do from the Ultra?

    Has anyone tested this yet???

    i dont think an SVS purchase will ever be considered a waste of money, especially due to a newer model. i was very happy with my 25-31PC, but i was looking for some more punch and more headroom down low, so i ordered a 16-46+ and S1000 package. that should keep me satisfied until maybe this summer, i mean, a few years!

    John, comparing the 46+ to the Ultra isn't really fair IMO. if you wanted to do comparisons, keep it even and have a 39+ / Ultra shootout. i know you own an Ultra and are considering moving to a dual 46+ package in exchange. just look at the numbers and decide for yourself: do you want the extra extension down low for those rare instances, or would you prefer the extra dB and sound quality where you'll tread the most? at 80% of the Ultra's performance level, the 46+ will save you ~$350 and get you a little lower extension, but if you watch movies frequently at reference level i cannot see how you'd think a 46+ will have the advantage over an Ultra.
    i might be missing something here, so please lmk if i am. both offer 'pluses' in different categories, balancing SPL, extension, and price-- just choose the one that suits your needs best. i just don't see how you would be wasting your money either way.

    I think the 16-46 CS+ should extend well below the ultras and come close to ultra's sonic performance.

    John has a great question here and I hope you folks out there who have got 46CS+ subs can tell us your experience.

    Cheers,

    Kishore
