    This sub can go maximum to 100dBs (1 foot away). Adding another sub, will go to 106dBs. What do you conclude guys ? Need your help.

    KW-120s are THX certified therefore the results are 100% true.

    Danz you heard both ! Need your honest opinion PLEASE

    You seem to like the PB-13 Ultra more ...... hehehe
    My vote goes to SVS because its got the amps built in for you so it saves you some rack/entrainment center room...that and I really really like SVS..

    Or get both and return the one you dont like (SVS has 30 day return, so does Emotiva, not sure about Klipsh)

    Hello again guys.

    After extensive research about the Dual KW-120 THX and Dual PB-13 Ultra I came to a conclusion (after seeing numerous charts and reviews) that the PB-13 Ultra is better than the KW-120.

    If you compare the subs from frequency 20Hz+, they are practically the same. But if you compare them from 20Hz down, then you see the magic in the PB-13 Ultra.

    Therefore if you are looking for the dynamic punchy bass of the KW-120s but you want also the extra deep deep bass of 10-20Hz, then go for the Dual PB-13 Ultras.

    This is of course my personal opinion based on the research I have done.

    I love my Dual Ultras in the 15Hz model. Sealed mode is a little much to ask even from dual Ultras. Too noticeable drop out on the output and a lot more concerns on the amps reliability.
    Trying out Different Audio Cables is a Religious Affair. You don't discuss it with anyone.

    15Hz mode allows PB13 Ultra to dig lower and bass is noticeable tighter. But the down-side is a little less SPL than 20Hz mode.
    In addition, it's a little easier for me to get a flatter response in the 15hz mode. 20hz in a smaller room like mine is very dynamic, but I get an even higher shelf below 35hz that's hard to tame with the PEQ. That tends to make things sound a bit bottom heavy. I prefer an even response where the bass above 50hz, the slam, as well as, where it's musical is just as prominent as the deep stuff.

    Hello guys !!! I got the Dual PB13 ULTRAS finally !! Awesome hehehe :-)

    After 2 whole days playing around positioning the subs (extremely heavy), finally got a nearly even response from 20HZ to 80HZ by placing them in the middle of the side walls. I preferred the 20Hz mode cause few movies go below 20Hz.

    I suggest to all owners of Dual PB13s to do the same if you want the low and mid bass on the same level - you can enjoy both music & movies fully !! Infact if you see the article on audioholics, they say the same thing:

    http://www.audioholics.com/tweaks/ge...-calibration-1

    For a single PB13 Ultra, it is ideally placed in the front corner, maybe 30-40 cms away from the wall. Corner placed subs peak mostly in 30-35Hz which you can tame by PEQ or Audyssey Multi EQ.

    With all the new subs coming out and new seal design, the Ultra-13 still
    remains one of the best for it's size and price!

    Congrats ! I have thought about selling mine and getting the one with the Sledge amp but the one I have works so well I just have not made the move.

    Let us know how it compares to one you have now which I assume is the non sledge amp model.
