    my query

    hi

    can you please tell me how does the chane sbe 118 subwoofer compare to the svs pb16 ultra subwoofer in terms of performance and lowest sub frequency

    and how low in frequecy possible does the sbe 118 subwoofer go

    i want to use your 3600 amplifier with 4 chane sbe 118 subs i want to connect it to a denon 4400
    with a marantz 7025 amp as well
    i want to connect it with the high frequencies of the left and right speakers of the jbl 590 speakers bi wired
    with the marantz 7025

    and the low frequecies of the jbl 590 frequencies to the emotiva xpa2 gen3
    amp then both amps connectesd to the denon 4400

    and the 4 chane sbe 118 subwoofers connected to the 3600 as well

    would this work and do i have all the connections to do all this

    and would the subs work well with the jbl 590 front speakers
    with the jbl 580 centre
    with the 2 svs ultra towers as rears
    and 2 jbl 580 as additional rears
    and 4 svs prime elevations as atmos height speakers

    with blue jeans speakers cables and using either 7 marantz a700 monoblocks
    or the 7 outlaw 2200 monoblocks for the 7 other speakers to enhance them

    I feel like I have answered the other questions in other threads so I'll address the new question.

    I have not heard the Chane SBE 118 nor any of their speakers. However, it and the SVS PB 16 Ultra are not even in the same category at least in my opinion.

    The SVS can be tuned down to 13 Hz but even in standard tuning, it's at 15 Hz on the low end. It also has a 1500 watt amp that's actually rated at 1500 watts RMS continuously with 5000 watts peak. Add to that, it has the most impressive digital signal processing that I have ever seen, built in.

    I'm sure the Chane is a great sub, but it's not really a fair comparison. First off, it is a passive sub meaning you would have to have external amplification. That's not really a bad thing, but just pointing it out in case you were not aware. Its native tuning appears to be 20 Hz on the low end but I really don't see much information about it on their site. If you ran dual (maybe even 4) SBE 118s with some serious outboard EQ and amps, you would get closer. Given the price difference, it might be worth looking into but they still won't have the extreme low end that the SVS will.

    Please note that I am not saying anything negative about Chane. I know very little about them as a company. I am simply trying to point out the differences in the two subs as I see them.
