    I'm an early CS-Ultra owner, and I didn't get around to forking out the $$ for the TV-12 CS-Ultra Driver/Rebate Upgrade offer that was going on about a year ago. I'm still interested in upgrading the driver of my older CS_U, but I notice that the SVS parts page shows it as not currently available:

    Do I just need to be patient, or did I completely miss out?

    Andy,

    I'm afraid you completely missed out. We ran this for a while but eventually some changes to the basket design meant the latest versions of the Ultra woofer would no longer fit the baffle of the older style subs.

    Economically it simply was a hard upgrade to justify as well. Adding a second sub (even if it's "only" a CS-Plus or CS) provided a far better payback on the investment of those looking for even better performance. Having two subs side by side isn't always an option of course.

    Yeah, not a great option for me. Oh well. I'm not in any way unhappy with the kick-ass performance of my CS_U, but it would have been cool to try out the TV-12. You're right, though, even with the trade-in, it was still a bit to spend.

    Thanks, Ron!
