Warning: This is a long treatise on the trials I encountered searching for the perfect subwoofer in the high-end market -- a fool's errand if there ever was one. If you prefer, skip down to the actual review to save time (the review is long enough).

Five-star reviews for subs are everywhere. What is it about subwoofers that create so much appeal? Your main speakers do over 99 percent of the work, while the subwoofer reproduces a small fraction of the lower frequency range (in my case, from 40 Hz down to below 20 Hz). Turn off your main speakers and listen to only the sub. Besides the obvious low vibrations, it's absolutely so underwhelming you'll laugh. But when you turn your speakers back on, one begins to understands why so much money is spent for a subsonic vibrator. You don't miss what you don't hear or feel. But once exposed to the lowest realm, you can never go back.

There is a certain class of subwoofer that hits a critical 10 Hz range that performs all this magic. The bigger and badder the sub is, the deeper it goes and the costlier it gets. Reaching that 20 Hz level is akin to breaking the sound barrier. Surprisingly, more and more subwoofers are capable of reaching these depths, and a few even go beyond with shocking power and high sound pressure levels (SPL). I guess I shouldn't be surprised about all the 5-star reviews (including my own). So with all the great subwoofers available, what is one to do? Make a list, of course. Here is my list of the best subwoofers available today based upon months of research:

1. Seaton Submersive HP (Audiophile/DIY)
2. Paradigm Signature Sub 2 (Commercial)
3. JL Audio G213 Gotham (Commercial)
4. JTR Captivator S2 (Audiophile/DIY)
5. JL Audio F212 Fathom (Commercial)

Now I'm not an expert audiophile (though I've been obsessively researching a/v components for 2 years now), and the previous wordy review covers the subject of which subwoofer to buy pretty thoroughly, but I feel this subwoofer's amazingness deserves a few more reviews. If you're willing to spend anywhere near $1600 for a subwoofer, buy this now. In my system of high end components this one shines as the star. The cost of the sb13 was way more than my originally intended a/v budget would allow and now I'm seriously considering buying a second one.
I would also like to offer my opinion that this sealed sub sounds better than ported ones, for the people comparing the sb13 to the pb13. I know there is some debate on a/v forums of sealed vs. ported which is usually summed up by saying sealed subs are more musical while ported subs go lower and louder. But this sub goes so low and plays so loud I can't imagine ever needing more in that department (humans can't really hear much below 20hz anyways) unless you have an unusually large room maybe. Plus the lower amount of distortion and decay (thanks to it being sealed) even at the lowest frequencies is a joy to listen to.
Finally, I wanted to mention the customizability of the sb13 is an audiophile's dream. It basically has a little EQ computer built in for the people with spl meters or more sophisticated calibration equipment. You have to go well above $2000 to find another subwoofer with this feature. I'll be having mine professionally calibrated in a couple months and can update this review if anyone is interested.

A game changer, there is no doubt. 2 channel, multi channel audio Home Theater this IS a contender. Gary Yocoubian, president of SVS and his team have given the music lover, and theater lover alike a relatively compact powerhouse of a Subwoofer that will create a powerful foundation to their system.

Utilizing a heavily reinforced, and braced cabinet, and 45 pound driver exclusively for the Ultra lineup, and the Sledgehammer 1000 watt digitally derived power amplifier, with 3600 watts peak. This Subwoofer tips the scales at 92 pounds!

Bring a friend, though you can unpack it alone following the simple instruction on the outside double box. About 105 pounds boxed by the way. Inside, the Subwoofer, the curved steel grille, not a cloth plastic nothing as usual. This one is made for war! Doubt I can damage it in my lifetime.
4 adjustable rubberized pointed feet, AC power cable USA configuration IEC. Instructions, quick guide, and a welcome from SVS in a densely packed double box affair that says short of dropping it out of a Helicopter, it will arrive safely at your door.

Factory direct or from your Magnolia HIFI at Best Buy for instance, you can get this chunky Subwoofer. The painted to a perfect mirror finish Black is the finish of choice as long as finger prints, and dust are kept at bay. Black Oak, real Oak Vaneer by the way is the easy care finish of the two.

The Sledgehammer Amplifier plate includes the mighty comprehensive setup interface with EQ, Phase, Level, Crossover, Slope, Room Compensation, turning on the lights at Area 51. Okay not the last one.

Also the LED backlit interface is a joy to use, no guesswork for geez, how loud really was that, or what was the slope again? Or EQ point, I forgot.
