DJ Jazzy Jeff’s PB16-Ultra, plus First SVS 4000 Series Subwoofer Reviews In!

With the 4000 Series subwoofers, SVS set out to make reference quality bass possible for more people than ever before by lowering the cost of entry into seat-rumbling, audiophile quality subwoofer performance. If early reviews are any sign, mission accomplished!

Steve Guttenberg, the most demanding audio reviewer from the world’s biggest tech site, CNET, offered this take after unleashing the SB-4000 in the hallowed listening room, which has housed some of the most expensive high-end audio products ever created:

“A reference-grade subwoofer that doesn't merely dish out room-rattling home theater effects, it's also very musical. I’ve never heard bass like this in the CNET listening room! I highly recommend it.”

A chance encounter with the SVS PB16-Ultra subwoofer while watching Youtube videos led legendary producer, hip-hop icon and self-professed “audio geek” DJ Jazzy Jeff to upgrade his existing studio subwoofers. Hard at work on new albums for himself and others, the upgrade redefined what bass could be for his craft - studio shaking output with zero distortion, and altered his approach to mixing and mastering.

We interviewed him about audio technology, music production and how subwoofers fit in. Check out the podcast-style interview, a brief video and visuals from DJ Jazzy Jeff’s personal studio in this profile.

HomeTheaterReview justifies why it chose the SB16-Ultra as its top subwoofer of 2017, “I've heard all of the top subwoofers on the market. The SB16-Ultra sounds like none of them. It's a whole different category of low-frequency sound. May well be the best subwoofer ever made.

After testing the SVS SB16-Ultra for 8 months and pairing it with hundreds of different speakers, Digital Trends saw perfection, giving the subwoofer a 10 out of 10 and stating, “When you take features, design, aesthetics, performance, and price into consideration, the SB16-Ultra is the best subwoofer you can buy.” Check out the video and review for the full story.

As sophisticated as they are brutally powerful, the new SVS 4000 Series subwoofers strike the perfect balance between fear-inducing output, subterranean extension, precise control and subtle refinement. In this video, SVS president Gary Yacoubian discusses the SVS subwoofer design philosophy and innovative 4000 Series technology.
