Hey Everyone Welcome Back To Two Guys Tech Im
Rob and today We have a pretty special video for you. We recently had the opportunity to do an unboxing and overview of the Svs PV16 ultra and in that video we promised you a complete and honest review well. After several weeks of testing and putting the sub through its paces. It’s time to let you know what we found out right after the intro now before we get started. I want to thank Svs for sending us this sub for review.
It Was Very Nice Of Them
and we really do appreciate it with that said this isn’t a sponsored video and all of the opinions shown are ours and ours alone. Svs had no say of what went into the video and they didn’t get to preview it before we published it to Youtube all right so on. to the review. SvS is an online direct to-consumer manufacturer that sells a huge variety of speakers, whether you’re into home theater or music. It’s more than likely that SvS has you covered be it subs bookshelves at most height speakers or large towers.
They Have It All At A Variety
of price points. The Pb16 ultra is their top of the line flagship subwoofer and as you can see it’s one big beautiful sub with its flawless, high gloss piano black finish and it’s fiber reinforced 16-inch woofer. It’s a sight to behold and as i said in the unboxing it’s one of the best looking subs I’ve ever seen the good news is this isn’t just a pretty sub and Svs didn’t originally start by making great looking subs, but instead they started by making great sounding subs. In fact the specs for this sub are. Even more impressive than its looks.
Sps Started By Developing A New 16-Inch
driver with a lightweight fiberglass resin composite that is rigid and will never flex under room shaking low frequency effects. They combine this with a newly designed 8-inch edge wound voice coil, which they claim is the largest ever used in a consumer subwoofer. The driver also utilizes four large toroidal ferrite magnets that produce a huge amount of magnetic force to drive the speaker to the highest levels of excursion and lowest frequency output and here’s a fun fact. The driver alone weighs almost 70 pounds that right there shows you SvS isn’t messing around because man let me tell you that is one massive driver to power their new driver. Svs is using a high efficiency class D sludge amplifier with 1500 watts continuous and an incredible 5000 watts peak output power.
The The Amp Also Employs A
sophisticated app-controlled audio DsP so you can fine-tune the sub to match your room and speakers which we’ll talk about more in a bit as far as connectivity goes. The AmP has RCa inputs and outputs, a 3 to 12 volt trigger input balanced input and outputs, a 3-prong power input and an on-off switch and the last part of the puzzle For Svs was to design a cabinet capable of withstanding the extreme forces produced by the new driver. This was achieved by using a double thick MDF front baffle and by employing tons of strategically placed internal bracing. This brought the total weight of the PB16 ultra to a staggering 175 pounds. The end result was a subwoofer capable of producing the deepest low frequencies while being played at reference levels without any resonance or coloration from the cabinet all right i.
Are Dying For Us To Get
into the testing and don’t worry we’re almost there but before we can get started we need to properly set the sub up for our room. We did this by using the SvS smartphone app, which I find absolutely amazing and honestly. I think every sub should have something like this because it’s so convenient and it works so well from the app. You have access to volume control parametric eq and a whole lot of other very useful settings, but before we get too far into it, let’s see what the app actually looks like and how to use it once you have the Pv16 ultra paired with your phone using the app is very easy. The home screen lets you control the volume of your subwoofer and set which preset you’d like to use either none music custom or default Using the small icon.
In The Top Right Corner Of
the screen. You have the ability to go to other sections of the app and going down the list. The next option we’ll look at is the low pass filter which will allow you to set a predetermined cutoff point so the sub won’t produce any frequencies higher than what you set here By default. This setting is off if you turn it on it will be set at 80 hertz which conforms to thx standards. The next option is phase adjustment.
This Lets You Change The Phase
of the sub anywhere from zero to 180 degrees, which can be really useful if you have more than one sub next the polarity option lets you. Adjust the polarity coming out of the sub which is set to positive by default Moving on. We have the parametric eQ which allows you to match the subwoofer to your room and your speakers by customizing any of the three blank profiles provided by SvS. This is an incredibly powerful tool which will cover more in our Svs app setup guide video, but all you need to know for now is that it works extremely well next the room gain compensation Setting will let you further match the subwoofer to your room and eliminate bloated sounding bass by rolling off frequency response below either 25 31 or 40 hertz next the port tuning option lets you change the output of the PB16 ultra based on the port configuration by default. This is set to standard, but there are three options.
You Can Choose From Standard Where All
ports are. Open extended where one port is plugged and sealed where all ports are plugged now as we mentioned in our unboxing SvS is currently only shipping the PB16 with one port plug, but if you want three, all you have to do is give them special instruction to include them at checkout and they’ll be added free of charge and next. We have presets where you can save your own custom sets of settings for different types of content like music or movies and quickly switch between them and finally in the settings option. You have some really useful tools like changing the name of your subwoofer. Whether you want to enable subwoofer standby the default reading, timeout duration and the brightness of the display and you can reset the subwoofer back to its factory settings.
There Are Also Options To Contact
Svs, support and tutorials to help guide you. Through the app once we had the PB16 ultra set up it was time to hook it up and start testing. We plugged the sub directly into our processor and turned off our own subwoofers and base Shakers also just a quick heads up. We tried three different mics and none of them actually worked to capture the true sound of this sub. The first scene we’re going to demo is Avengers End game.
This Is The Part Right After
the Hulk uses the infinity Stones to bring everybody back and thanos shoots missiles from his ship into the Avengers headquarters so keep that in mind and let’s get into the demo. I think it worked all right so that was definitely pretty amazing. I could actually feel it in my chest when the rockets exploded it’s almost like we have our base Shakers turned on, but of course they’re. not and like I said the microphones just don’t do justice for this subwoofer what you guys are hearing on Youtube is nothing like what we’re actually hearing it’s really actually amazing alright so next up we have Elita battle angel. This is the part where she stands up to the centurion and saves the little dog near the beginning of the movie out of the way outstanding and now here’s a scene from the movie fury where they’re driving the tanks across a big field and being shot at with anti–tank guns fires who’s got eyes on him got it and finally we couldn’t call this video a review without showing you the very beginning of edge of Tomorrow.
All Right Those Demos Sounded Absolutely
amazing, but let me tell you the edge of Tomorrow demo was just unbelievable. The energy coming out of the sub was literally shaking. Our walls just check out this metal movie reel It literally looks like it’s waving in the wind, but it’s purely from the sound pressure that’s being produced out of the ports of the sub and that was so cool we just had to film it from another angle. Now obviously we’re not going to be listening to movies at this volume. Our goal here is to demonstrate the capabilities of the sub trying to do that through our microphone and then through Youtube.
Its Really Hard For Us To Convey Just
how good the subwoofer is that’s why we’re putting so much emphasis on how much impact the sub has in our room. Other videos on Youtube have tried this by putting paper in front of the ports to show air movement or docking over cans or even blowing out multiple candles and those are all great ideas but. We decided to try something a little different. We want to see if this sub can actually move enough air to spin. This 120-millimeter computer fan so let’s see if it can all right so as you can see it actually did spin the fan, but it had so much pressure it blew it over so we tried it again.
But This Time We Actually Taped The
fan to the port and man. This thing had absolutely no problem spinning the fan to what looks like a pretty high rpm. Not only is it spinning the fan but for a minute there. I literally thought it was going to blow the fan off the port again. Even though it was taped on pretty securely all right that was fun, but now it’s time to get back to testing obviously.

Were Really Impressed With This Sub For
movies but now. It’s time to see how it sounds for music. So we started with the track where we started by lost sky for all of our music tests. We put the included foam plug in the middle port and set the Pb16 ultra to extended mode. We then continued our testing with soundtracks from albums like the Hunter by Jennifer Warren’s Brothers in Arms by Dire Straits Fresh Air 3 by Manheim Steamroller the Wall by Pink Floyd and World Machine by level 42.
We Didnt Include That Footage Here Because Its
just so easy to get a copyright strike here on Youtube when it comes to music now if you’re thinking that’s really not that much testing the fact is these are just movies and songs that we decided to mention or use in this review. We’ve actually been testing the sub every day for the last two weeks with numerous films and music so we could properly evaluate its performance and when it comes to music. This PB16 did not disappoint now. I could sit here and try to wow you with big audiophile words to convince you how good it sounds, but I’m not going to do that because with this subwoofer hearing is believing and it speaks for itself what I will say is it’s.
