SVS SB16-Ultra 1500 Watt 16" Subwoofer - Piano Gloss

Product Descriptions

SVS SB16-Ultra 1500 Watt 16" Subwoofer - Piano Gloss

The ultimate reference standard for bass, SB16-Ultra redefines what is possible from a sealed cabinet subwoofer design with cost-no-object design and engineering.

The SVS SB16-Ultra 1500 Watt 16" Subwoofer is an impressive piece of audio equipment that boasts a front-firing long-stroke 16” driver and a powerful STA-1500D Sledge amplifier, which delivers an astounding 1,500 watts of continuous power, with a peak of 5,000 watts. This subwoofer is available in both premium black ash or a stunning piano gloss finish, and comes with a protective, non-resonant steel mesh grille. The rigid and braced MDF cabinet ensures that this subwoofer produces clear, distortion-free sound across a frequency range of 16-460Hz with a +/- 3dB accuracy. Measuring 20” H X 19.5” W X 20.1” D, and weighing in at 122 lbs., the SVS SB16-Ultra is a high-quality subwoofer that is perfect for audiophiles looking for exceptional sound quality and power.

One Subwoofer to Rule Them All. Introducing the SB16-Ultra.

The design of the SB16-Ultra subwoofer was guided by an unwavering commitment to delivering exceptional bass performance and engineering excellence. SVS employed groundbreaking technology, subjected the subwoofer to rigorous design and extensive testing in both real-world and laboratory environments to achieve outstanding results, including massive output levels, extreme low frequency extension, nearly perfect frequency response accuracy, and precise transient response. As the ultimate culmination of SVS's design advancements, the SB16-Ultra represents the most significant breakthrough in subwoofer innovation and performance since their inception.

Stunningly Powerful, New Sledge Amplifier with Fully Discrete MOSFET Output and 1,500 Watts Continuous, 5,000+ Watts Peak Power.

At a conservative rating of 1,500 watts continuous and over 5,000 watts peak power, the SB16-Ultra Sledge STA-1500D amplifier's 64 Amp 200-Volt MOSFETs provide the exceptional sonic muscle that drives what may be the most powerful and highest fidelity subwoofer amplifier ever developed. Unlike the integrated circuits found in most Class D subwoofers, the discrete MOSFET output results in superior handling and tighter control of the immense amplifier power.

To ensure refined behavior and pristine output even at the most demanding drive levels, the SB16-Ultra subwoofer harnesses this effortless power through the audio industry's most advanced 50 MHz Analog Devices Audio DSP, featuring 56-bit filtering capabilities. This allows the subwoofer to handle the nearly limitless power with ease and precision, unleashing only the perfect amount of low frequency energy at precisely the right moment.

Masterful Engineering. 3 Game-Changing Subwoofer Innovations.

One of these groundbreaking innovations would’ve been enough to make the 16-Ultra Series an engineering tour-de-force, but the combination of 3 subwoofer firsts propels the SVS SB16-Ultra into the pantheon of all-time great audio products.

Massive New 16-inch SVS Ultra Driver with Unprecedented 8-inch Edge Wound Voice Coil.

In designing the largest and most formidable driver ever used in an SVS subwoofer, it was crucial to maintain the same supreme standards of control and accuracy as every other subwoofer manufactured by SVS. To handle the crushing force of a 16-inch driver, the SB16-Ultra subwoofer features an 8-inch edge wound voice coil, the largest ever deployed in a consumer subwoofer. This innovation ensures ultra-low distortion, efficient heat dissipation, exceptional linearity, and nearly zero power compression. Although larger drivers are generally more difficult to control, the unprecedented voice coil design ensures accuracy in frequency response and speed in transients, without ever sounding boomy.

Driving the driver are four massive, dedicated toroidal ferrite magnets that unleash a staggering 78mm peak-to-peak excursion and the highest levels of motor force and palpable SPLs. The 16-inch Ultra driver cone is both light and rigid, consisting of a premium fiberglass resin composite with an optimal stiffness-to-mass ratio to maximize the movement of air and sonic energy without ever distorting or losing control.

SB16-Ultra Highlights:

  • 16” driver with premium fiberglass resin composite cone generates reference SPLs without a hint of distortion.
  • Massive precision machined driver motor weighing over 50lbs delivers punishing output with pinpoint control.
  • First-ever 8” edge wound voice coil is largest ever deployed in a home subwoofer and ensures precise driver control at all drive levels.
  • Stunningly powerful, Class D Sledge amplifier with 1,500 Watts continuous, 5,000+ Watts peak power and fully discrete MOSFET output
  • effortlessly pushes driver to its full potential.
  • 50Mhz Analog Devices DSP enables pristine in-room bass response and unlocks control functions only available from SVS.
  • Smartphone app for Apple® and Android® controls all DSP functions and stores custom presets.

Innovative New Smartphone App for Subwoofer DSP and Control.

Innovative New Smartphone App for Subwoofer DSP and Control SB16-Ultra

The innovative SB16-Ultra smartphone app is compatible with Apple® and Android® platforms and unleashes the full depth, force, and nuance of the world's finest subwoofer. This groundbreaking SVS subwoofer app controls all DSP functions and conveniently stores custom presets, making it the easiest way ever to fine-tune bass surpassing 16Hz at reference volumes from the comfort of your favorite seat.

For added convenience, 2-way feedback shows updates in real-time on both the app and subwoofer interface, and 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.
