“The REL 212/SE is more than just another subwoofer. While it has foundation-threating levels of bass energy on tap, it’s also one of the best upgrades you can do for your system, because it takes everything you like about your existing system and makes more of it: more midrange clarity, more high frequency extension, more soundstaging, and a lot more speed. The downsides are three-fold: it’s a big box, it cuts a relatively big hole in your bank balance, and it’s unlikely to stay on its own for long, as you will start eyeing up the options for a matching pair of 212/SE. These things apply more or less universally, too: if speakers that don’t benefit from the 212/SE exist, they would have to be a pair of extraordinarily meaty loudspeakers that would dwarf the 212/SE both physically and financially. Bass is not just for bass-heads, as the REL 212/SE demonstrates, and as a result comes very highly recommended.

SVS PB16-Ultra/SVS SB16-Ultra review

“The Bluetooth app is perhaps the least impressive part of the PB16-Ultra/SB16-Ultra package. It’s easy to read and won’t take you long to get used to (there’s an in-app tutorial to guide you), but I did find it sometimes being laggy in operation and had some ‘not-in range’ drop-outs despite standing right next to the woofer. Also, the sliding scales on the parametric EQ system are quite fiddly to operate on a smartphone. A phablet or tablet will provide a better touchscreen canvas.”

” I’m not sure what Taylor Swift has more of: No. 1 singles or ex-boyfriends. Regardless, she knows how to write engaging music, and “Blank Space” is no exception. The song has an airy feel to it and harks back to the year in the title of its host album, 1989, with a synthesized beat that draws you in from the first note. But when the young lady starts to sing, the bass track kicks hard—really hard—and again, the d110s shined brightly. The bass response was tight and articulate, and it didn’t linger in the room for even a moment longer than it was supposed to. Impressive would be an understatement.”

SVS SB16-Ultra Subwoofer Reviewed

“Probably everyone considering the SB16-Ultra would also consider the $1,599 SB13-Ultra, but the SB16-Ultra looks like the better buy. The SB16-Ultra is a little larger and $400 more, but surely has substantially higher output. The SB13-Ultra does offer parametric EQ, but it has two bands compared to three in the SB16-Ultra, and the center frequencies are fixed in 1/6th-octave steps rather than the 1-Hz steps of the SB16-Ultra. The SB16-Ultra’s EQ offers narrower Q settings, which would make it easier to “notch out” narrow peaks. However, the SB13-Ultra has an integral high-pass filter that can filter the bass out of your main speakers, which will come in handy in stereo systems using a preamp with no subwoofer crossover.”

“My home theater is just shy of 5,000 cubic feet, so it definitely needs a big subwoofer or two to pressurize the space. My PC-Ultra sits in the front left-hand corner of the room in a relatively tight space that just fit the SB16-Ultra. The PB16 wouldn’t slip into my usual secondary location and was temporarily placed directly behind our couch in a spot where the bass response makes for one of the best sub locations in the room, but which also put it close to foot traffic. Obviously, if you’re bringing either of these subs into your home permanently, you’ll know exactly where they’re going in advance and have a plan to properly integrate them.”
