  • 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."

  • KSpaceGuy Reviews the PB-4000 Subwoofer

    “This subwoofer sounds phenomenal. For a 13-inch driver to sound as crisp and accurate as it does is just a testament to SVS engineering prowess. Plus, the PB-4000 hits down to 16Hz with authority. Action movies, explosions, car races, helicopters, it doesn’t matter what, the subwoofer just immerses you and makes you feel things your would normally just miss. It just doesn’t get any better than this.”

    "Massive, powerful, controlled, forceful, extremely deep, detailed, nuanced, it’s a lot of words in my book and they’re all positive.

Whether you need to integrate with bookshelf speakers, in-wall speakers, or big floorstanders, the PB-4000 will support them in a fantastic way."

Makes the fantastic seem more plausible by adding depth and grandeur to the soundscape."

  • SB-4000 and PB-4000 Subwoofers Receive Heimkino's Reference Class Award

    "The SB-4000 subwoofer convinces with a crisp, precise reproduction of lowest frequencies. For the ultimate pressure in the diaphragm, the PB-4000 is particularly suitable, because it provides even greater dynamic range and maximum low frequency extension...With the new 4000 Series subwoofers, SVS once again hit a home run. Both models offer maximum low-bass performance at reference-class level."

    "Subterranean levels of bass with a surprising level of subtlety and grace. It loaded the entire room with low frequency energy in breathtaking fashion with impact that you felt rather than heard…There was also a crispness and clarity to the bass, coupled with a sense of delicacy and responsiveness that is a testament to the engineering inside the incredibly inert cabinet. Pure bass heaven!"

  • PB-4000 Subwoofer Review by Home Theater Review

    "A sub with brute force that also performs so nimbly and even gently when the source material calls for it. I found myself so viscerally impressed by the PB-4000’s low-frequency output that I kept cranking up the volume to see which of us (me or the sub) would cry uncle first. In the end, I lost. SVS has another undeniable winner on its hands here—one that outperforms its predecessor while delivering improved aesthetics at a cheaper sticker price. I could not give it a heartier recommendation."
