SVS PB13-ultra PB-13 ultra in like new condition near Columbia, SC

Recommended Posts

These are $1999 new, get one local (near Columbia SC) for much less and hear before you buy too! Both are in perfect condition and used less than a year. All packaging included. I have two of these available, both received in March 2015 direct from SVS, ordered in late February 2015 direct from SVS.  Order number and order email will be provided too.

$1550 price is for ONE subwoofer, but you are welcome to buy BOTH for $2950 if you bring cash and drive to my home.

My wife has always hated how big they are and she finally won so I bought much smaller subs that do NOT go down to 14Hz like these massive subs weighing 155lbs each. These are serious and great looking subs.

If you are price shopping, note that these have the newer more powerful sledge amps, while the older ones you see on ebay have the older style amp. I can also provide a copy of the original order for warranty purposes too, there is more than 4 years remaining on the warranty (between you and SVS)!

These are very high quality and can do less than 1% THD at normal volume level (100dB or less) in a well treated room and can even hit those 120dB peaks if you want them to for movies. Very versatile subs as they can be used in three modes including sealed, ported 16Hz or ported 20Hz. They easily went down to 14Hz in my room +/-3dB.

Any audiophile would love these, they are that impactful and accurate.

When a member posts an item for sale here I see no reason to respond unless there is an interest in buying. If someone wants others opinions usually they will ask for opinions.




Agreed and the best place to ask questions is PM.

Back to the sale of some nice subwoofers!  These babies look well taken care of and should make a nice addition to a system!  Oh, bump for the sale. :)

Gents, I have, at considerable annoyance, gone through and hidden every post irrelevant to the selling or buying of these subs.  The OP has taken more crap than anyone ever should, and I want it to stop, now.  Post if you want to buy or ask a question.  As mentioned, Garage Sale is a COURTEOUS place for forum members to buy or sell.  If you have a beef, take it to PM. 


The fact that your post was hidden means nothing except that it was not relevant to etc6849s post offering his gear.  Nonetheless, the behavior in this thread is very disturbing, especially from some of you I've known for a while. 


TOS doesn't require you to like everybody, but there is something of an expectation of respect.
