SVS Brings the Sound R|Evolution to CES 2019

SVS brought immersive, heart-pounding sound to CES, the biggest technology show in the world, featuring new 3000 Series subwoofers, Prime Wireless and other surprises in our trio of Las Vegas suites.

Adding to the thrills, four SVS SB16-Ultra subwoofers were chosen to provide deep, room-energizing bass for the first-ever IMAX Enhanced experience. The demonstration showcased a program launched by DTS and IMAX to deliver a superior standard for image and sound quality in home entertainment. Breathtaking output from the quartet of SVS subwoofers stole the show.

We ran into many friends, had a blast giving reference volume demos and maybe stayed up a bit too late a couple nights. Check out our slideshow from four action-packed days at CES 2019!
