    Help, I need help in trying to decide between paradigm servo 15 and SVS PC-ULTRA.I'm also considering the application of (2) SVS25-31pc plus as an option.
    My set-up will consist of:
    Paradigm stud. 100
    Paradigm cc 570
    Paradigm adp 470
    B&K avr507
    Denon dv2900
    Mitsubishi 55"
    I've listened to the servo 15, but not the svs and cannot make an informed decision. Please give input.
    THANKS, Greg

    Greg, I'm sure you will get lots of input here from SVS owners.

    I have been extremely happy with my Servo-15 with 40v3 and the same speakers as the rest of your setup.

    Here is a link to some Sub tests:

    The 20-39 listed should obviously hit lower than the 25-31, but I suspect you would get 3+ db more output from dual 25-31's over the single.

    In my case (being Canadian) it was a no brainer for the Servo due to lower pricing here (I paid 1075US) and high shipping/broker/exchange on the SVS subs to Canada. I would not trade this sub for anything else I have heard so far, but like yourself I have not had the pleasure of listening to SVS. You could try to see if someone near you would give you a listen.

    It would also depend on your preference of box or tube style sub(s).
