Add powerful bass to nearly any home or professional installation with the black oak veneer SVS PB16-Ultra 16" 1500W Subwoofer. It features a 16" front-firing woofer with three 3.5" front-firing ports designed to output up to 1500W of RMS power and 5000W of peak power for ground-shaking performance nearly anywhere. With an adjustable frequency response based on the number of ports you choose to seal off, the PB16-Ultra is equipped to handle virtually all types of listening material. It can be controlled via the front-panel display, wirelessly with included IR remote, or with an iOS- and Android-compatible smartphone app via Bluetooth.

16" Driver with 8" Edge-Wound Voice Coil
The 8" edge-wound voice coil helps the PB16-Ultra handle the force of the 16" driver, helping to ensure control and low distortion at high drive levels for enhanced output and low frequency extension. Pushing the driver are four dedicated toroidal ferrite magnets that deliver 95mm peak-to-peak Xmech excursion (82mm Xmax) and high levels of motor force and SPLs. The driver cone consists of a fiberglass resin composite with a stiffness-to-mass ratio designed to maximize air movement and sonic energy without distorting or losing control.
Sledge Amplifier with Discrete MOSFET Output
Rated at 1500W continuous / 5000W peak power, the built-in Sledge STA-1500D amplifier's 64A/200V MOSFETs are the sonic muscle behind the subwoofer. Its discrete MOSFET output is designed to push the driver to its peak performance. To harness the power of the amp, the subwoofer uses a 50 MHz Analog Devices Audio DSP with 56-bit filtering.
Smartphone App for Subwoofer DSP and Control
Compatible with Apple and Android platforms, the PB16-Ultra smartphone app controls all DSP functions and stores custom presets. 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 the included IR remote and a front-panel display.
Acoustically Inert Cabinet
The PB16-Ultra is built with an MDF front baffle and internal bracing to support the drive unit and to help ensure an acoustically inert environment. The reinforced internal design helps eliminate coloration or resonance from the cabinet, even when the deepest low frequencies are played at reference sound pressure levels.
