SVS 16-Ultra Series Reference Subwoofers Unleashed
Harnessing the nearly limitless power is a 50 MHz Analog Devices Audio DSP with 56bit filtering. This advanced DSP is the most sophisticated processing engine ever used in a consumer subwoofer and gives the 16-Ultra subwoofer’s refined behavior and pristine output, while enabling precise tuning so the perfect amount of low frequency energy is unleashed at just the right time and just the right frequency.
Another pioneering advancement is the new subwoofer control and bass management smartphone app for Apple® and Android®devices. The powerful 16-Ultra app controls polarity, room gain, phase alignment, parametric EQ and other DSP functions, and conveniently stores custom presets. It’s the easiest way to fine tune bass down to 16Hz and below from any seat in the house. For added convenience, bi-directional feedback shows updates in real time on both the app and subwoofer interface and Bluetooth connectivity allows adjustments to be made when subwoofer is not in sight. Control is also available via IR remote and a front panel display.
A subwoofer capable of creating such extreme levels of sonic energy requires a formidable cabinet design so the 16-Ultra Series is built with a double thick MDF front baffle and rigid internal bracing to support the drive unit and to ensure an acoustically inert environment. The highly reinforced internal design eliminates any chance of coloration or resonance from the cabinet, even when the deepest low frequencies are played at reference sound pressure levels.
