Premium Engineering Produces Massive Output Levels, Extreme Extension, Pinpoint Transients, Incredible Power: 174-Pound SVS PB16-Ultra Subwoofer Can Be Controlled by Your Phone
Break on through to the other side: The SVS PB16-Ultra changes everything about subwoofer performance, engineering, and control. Three groundbreaking innovations – a new driver, voice coil, and amplifier – put this reference ported-box design on an exalted pedestal. Packed with a fiberglass resin-composite 16-inch Ultra cone driver, front-firing triple 3.5-inch-high flow flared ports, FEA-optimized cast-aluminum basket, fully discrete MOSFET amplifier capable of 5,000W peak RMS, the largest edge-wound voice coil in a consumer subwoofer, and precision-machined driver motor, the 174-pound PB16-Ultra exemplifies control, extension, effortlessness, tautness, strength, and power. Add to these sonic feats via SVS' intuitive Android- and Apple-compatible app, which handles all DSP functions and stores custom presets. It couldn't be easier to fine-tune bass surpassing 16Hz at reference volumes from wherever you wish to sit. We stake our 100% Money-Back Guarantee on the fact you've never experienced anything like PB16-Ultra.
"The crossover from subwoofers to speakers was undetectable, blending with a seamless grace that truly picky enthusiasts would appreciate. Super-clean bass that thunders with precision."
– European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA), Best Subwoofer Award
Pioneering technology, rigorous design, and extreme testing in real-world and laboratory environments allow PB16-Ultra to achieve massive output levels, extreme low-frequency extension, near-perfect frequency response accuracy, and pinpoint transient response. PB16-Ultra handles the crushing force of a 16-inch driver via its eight-inch edge-wound voice coil, the largest ever deployed in a consumer subwoofer. It ensures ultra-low distortion, efficient heat dissipation, exceptional linearity, and nearly zero power compression. By nature, larger drivers are more difficult to control, but the cutting-edge voice coil ensures accuracy in frequency response and speed in transients without ever sounding boomy.
"Fear-inducing SPLs. Bass that you feel as well as hear. Delicious weight and scale, without a trace of distortion. ...It's jaw-on-the-floor stuff."

Four dedicated toroidal ferrite magnets push the light, rigid, 16-inch driver and unleash a staggering 78mm peak to peak excursion and the highest levels of motor force and palpable SPLs. The driver cone consists of a premium fiberglass resin composite with optimal stiffness to mass ratio to maximize movement of air and sonic energy without distorting or losing control. Conservatively rated at 1,500 watts continuous, 5,000+ watts peak power, the PB16-Ultra Sledge STA-1500D amplifier's 64-Amp, 200-Volt MOSFETs serve as the sonic muscle. Discrete MOSFET output results in superior handling and tighter control of the amplifier power and represents a major upgrade over the integrated circuits found in most Class D subwoofers. PB16-Ultra also uses the industry's most advanced 50MHz Analog Devices Audio DSP with 56-bit filtering to handle the nearly limitless power, unleashing the ideal amount of low-frequency energy at just the right time.
Speaking of the right time, there's no better time than now to experience the perception-altering and soul-enhancing abilities of PB16-Ultra. SVS' five-year unconditional manufacturer's warranty ices the deal.
Get Updates in Real Time, Adjust Settings When You Want with Bluetooth
For added convenience, two-way feedback shows updates in real time on both the app and subwoofer interface. Bluetooth connectivity allows adjustments to be made even when the subwoofer is not in sight. Control is also available via IR remote and an intuitive front panel display.
Sonic-First Build and Construction
PB16-Ultra is built with a double-thick MDF front baffle and rigid internal bracing to support the drive unit and ensure an acoustically inert environment. The highly reinforced internal design eliminates any coloration or resonance from the cabinet, even when deep low frequencies are played at reference sound-pressure levels.
