    “It is an entirely new redesign with major performance gains, especially in mid-bass frequencies which is where so much content dwells. The Pro iteration of the 2000 series hits a lot harder than its predecessor ever did. Along with the boost in performance, the PB-2000 Pro adds SVS Subwoofer Control App for smartphones as well as native support for a sealed operating mode. It also has an uptick in aesthetics with symmetric ports and a fabric grille. The PB-2000 Pro is a major upgrade over the previous series, not a minor one, and it easily earns our product of the year in the class of affordable subwoofers. A FREE 45 day home trial with paid shipping both ways makes this subwoofer a no brainer.”

That alone would have been worth the cost increase, but SVS also adds in their app control which comes with a three-band parametric equalizer, as well as support for a sealed operating mode. SVS finds their usual optimal balance between performance, features, industrial design, not to mention their gold-standard setting post-purchase support. SVS also has another superbly well-rounded product in the PB-2000 Pro.”

  • AV Nirvana Reviews the PB-2000 Pro Subwoofer

    “A deep digging and articulate subwoofer that punches far above what it’s modest price would suggest. Unassuming and relatively compact for the performance levels it delivers. When playing in duals, the room seemed to pressurize, and a literal feeling of momentary breathlessness came over me. The Black Ash vinyl veneer has a real-wood appearance that lends a premium look and feel to the subwoofer. Easy to install and integrate using the downloadable SVS Smartphone App.”

  • Heimkino Names 2000 Pro Series "Outstanding Product"

    “Both woofers in the laboratory test easily reach lower limit frequencies of fabulous 18 Hertz with enormous output levels, whereby the ported cabinet PB-2000 Pro brings a little more dynamic reserves and thrust. The strengths of the sealed SB-2000 Pro lie more in its crisp, pinpoint accurate playing style. For a price of around 1,000 euros, both models offer first-class sound, extremely deep playback and plenty of level reserves. ”

  • Dtown Reviews the PB16-Ultra Subwoofer

    "This subwoofer kept surprising me again and again, he just didn't give in, he was present, contained and accurate. What makes him so good is the fact that his bass is so true, so accurate and fast, with excellent impact capabilities. He knows to be polite and strong, the Ultra 16 does not just come to show a large amount of boomy bass. That’s not the name of the game, but it knows how to play correctly with precision and impressive sound quality. These capabilities are very difficult to get from any other subwoofer."

  • SVS PB-3000 Subwoofer Receives Soundstage Access's Reviewer's Choice Award

    "The PB-3000 proved so capable of massive output with very-low-frequency effects from this blockbuster that it could move my room with apparent ease. Once you hear a sonic blast out of this sub, you’ll understand that when its amp sends 2500W of peak power to its woofer cone, all of that juice is transformed into clean, room-shaking, low-frequency soundwaves. It reaches musical and cinematic depths with ease and grace, and its app provides a multitude of options for shaping the sound to suit both it and your listening space. The PB-3000 is the first subwoofer that I can describe as being fun to use. It’s a snap to install, delivers the goods with rumbling authority, and can be modified to suit your needs and tastes in real time, from the comfort and convenience of your listening and/or viewing chair. The future of subwoofing is here, and it’s the SVS PB-3000."

  • 4000 Series Subwoofers Receive HCReview's Reference Award (French)

    "Delivers linear bass with impressive pressure levels, while managing to maintain extremely low distortion rates. Visceral, agile and powerful performance. A nice tour de force!"
  • 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."
