AVS Forum Reviews the PB-3000 Subwoofer

AVS Forum Reviews the PB-3000 Subwoofer

"So potent it almost startled me. The PB-3000 cannot only handle volume, it seems to relish the challenge. In effect, it performs better the more you crank it. This thing seems to enjoy being pushed. I never sensed the PB-3000 struggling. I beat the living you-know-what out of this thing and it never flinched. No matter the volume, no matter how punishing the source material, it shrugged off everything. Composed and powerful is a nice combination."

HiFi Choice (Poland) Reviews the SVS SB-3000 Subwoofer

”Easy to set up owing to its closed cabinet. Fantastic application to drive some more sophisticated functions makes it simple for the user no matter if it is for stereo or home cinema. Deep and massive bass is well controlled and amazingly neutral. Simply perfect for both home cinema and stereo experience.”.

Missing Remote Reviews the SB-3000 Subwoofer

“It just delivers. Music, movies, television, gaming; across all of the content tested, it always added that perfect thump to the room. Whether subtle, or the more across-the-chest variety, the SVS SB-3000 is simply brilliant. Tight and effortless, regardless of volume. You feel it. You hear it. I was not able to find a level which “broke” the bass, or left the SB-3000 breathless. I am sure it exists, in theory, just not confident it would be safe to be in the same room at the time."

Video Magazine (Germany) Reviews the PB-3000 Subwoofer

"The new SVS PB-3000 is the champion in the range under 2000 Euro. Its lightning-fast response to impulses predestined the PB-3000 not only for the intended use in surround systems. With this dry punch, it is also recommended for music fans for lust on an extra level. Unmatched material costs performance and comfort for the money. A real zinger in every way"

Mixdownmag.com Reviews the PB-3000 Subwoofer

"SVS has produced a subwoofer worthy of studios of any level, or home listening experiences looking to be bought to the next level. Intuitive design, handy and practical controls make for a product that can be specifically dialed in for any room and any set-up. Low end response is clear at any volume and you can still feel the rumble of film sound as you watch at an acceptable level at home. All this and a myriad of connection options ensure it can be incorporated and connected to any set-up, which really makes the SVS PB-3000 a no brainer."

Reference Home Theater Reviews the PB-3000 Subwoofer

“Packs plenty of impact and depth, fills the room with thunderous bass. Fantastic performing subwoofer that does a wonderful job with movies and music. It fills out the lower octaves in music without drawing extra attention to itself, and you can feel it in your chest as it rattles the walls when watching movies. The PB-3000 gets an easy recommendation and might even stick around in my system permanently”

Video Magazine (Germany) Reviews the SB-3000 Subwoofer

"SVS has indeed managed to put the virtues of its flagships into a very compact and affordable subwoofer. Exemplary precision and transient response, it has what it takes to make even audiophiles salivate over a subwoofer. Those who mainly listen to music and watch concert videos will especially love the SB-3000."

HomeTheaterForum Reviews the SB-3000 Subwoofer

"Maintained composure even when pushed for extended periods. Capable of playing far louder than I was comfortable listening, it’s amazing the amount of air this thing moves given the size. Literally shook rafters in rooms which are not designed for punishing sound playback. Recommended and well worth the asking price!"
