  • PB-4000 Subwoofer Receives the Audioholics 2018 Product of the Year Award

    "It is as much of a beauty as it is a brute, in that it looks and acts sophisticated but that is just a veneer that hides some truly explosive power. It exemplifies the high fidelity that has always been a hallmark of SVS subwoofers. Beauty, brains, and brawn; the PB-4000 has it all and earns our subwoofer product of the year."

  • PB-4000 Subwoofer Receives Audioholics Bassaholic Extreme Award

    "Tears into bass, the deeper the frequency, the more energetic it gets…users who want strong, uncolored bass that doesn’t change its character at all with varying loudness levels can have that in the PB-4000. Makes the fantastic seem more plausible by adding depth and grandeur to the soundscape."

  • Audioholics Reviews the SB16-Ultra Subwoofer

    "Tight and natural sounding. The SVS SB16-Ultra was capable of subtlety but also brought grandeur when asked. Hit hard when it needed to and had a soft touch in those moments when less-is-more. It never strained at any volume, no matter how loud I cranked it. At times beautiful and other times thunderous. A top-notch subwoofer."

  • Audioholics on Prime Elevation

    "As a company that stands behind real science in audio, it's not surprising that SVS has come up with an elevation [height effects] speaker that relies on sending the direct sound to the listener rather than the compromised bounce popularized by Dolby Speakers. Very exciting."

  • Audioholics gives the PB12-NSD their "Bassaholic" seal of approval

    "At the end of the day that is what a subwoofer is supposed to do and the PB12-NSD does not disappoint."
    "...what it does do very well is the task of producing accurate and powerful bass with depth and finese that most other subs in this price range cannot match."
    "Outstanding bandwidth uniformity, linear response, low distortion and true 20Hz extension, etc... There is a whole lot to like about the PB12-NSD..."
    "...the PB12-NSD fires on all cylinders and provides a bulletproof, low distortion bottom end. $769 shipped to your door is a bargain price for this kind of all around performance."

  • Audioholics and Sound + Vision love the new PB13-Ultra

    "The PB13-Ultra was quite possibly the best subwoofer I've ever had in my system. It went lower and louder than any single-piece sub I've tried here, and it did so without producing a hint of excessive sound on the middle-bass octaves from 60Hz on up."
    "Massive wattage and slick control in a compact package."
    "The PB13-Ultra is a very powerful subwoofer that is competently engineered, heavily built, bulletproof, high tech and high output, possessing true extension to below 20Hz and a ton of configurability options. It’s a clear winner!"
