Hemmabio (Sweden) Reviews the PB-4000 Subwoofer

"Massive, powerful, controlled, forceful, extremely deep, detailed, nuanced, it’s a lot of words in my book and they’re all positive. An extremely competent subwoofer from start to finish for all occasions. Whether you need to integrate with bookshelf speakers, in-wall speakers, or big floorstanders, the PB-4000 will support them in a fantastic way."

SpareChange Reviews the PB16-Ultra (Youtube)

SpareChange Reviews the PB16-Ultra (Youtube)

"It can slam you hard in the chest or gently move the hair on your arms. For a subwoofer of this size, it handles transients amazingly, almost like a sealed subwoofer. And at the price, you simply won’t find a better subwoofer performer."

PB-4000 Subwoofer Receives Audioholics Bassaholic Extreme Award

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."

PB-4000 Subwoofer Receives the Highly Recommended Award from AVForums

PB-4000 Subwoofer Receives the Highly Recommended Award from AVForums

"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!"

PB16-Ultra Subwoofer Receives the European Imaging and Sound Association's EISA Award

PB16-Ultra Subwoofer Receives the European Imaging and Sound Association's EISA Award

"This sub is insanely good… and two of them? Off the charts! I can’t speak highly enough of the sub’s integration offerings, especially when used with software such as Room EQ Wizard – Bravo, SVS! And taking the subs beyond reference levels isn’t a problem (I was never able to reach a breaking point). The crossover from subwoofers to speakers was undetectable, blending with a seamless grace that truly picky enthusiasts would appreciate. Super clean bass that thunders with precision."

PB12-Plus Sound+Vision Magazine Editor's Choice 2010

PB12-Plus Sound+Vision Magazine Editor's Choice 2010

Sound + Vision's Brent Butterworth reviews the PB12-Plus. His take: "Innovative company" "...the PB12-Plus delivered perhaps the most detailed, subtle performance of all these subs."
"Probably the best deal going on a high end subwoofer."
"From its ungodly output capabilities, true 20Hz extension, and ability to play clean and distortion free, the PB12-Plus DSP has truly earned the right to be called a "subwoofer."
"This superbly-built sub includes quality amplification, a sweet-sounding 12-inch driver and plenty of adjustability."

"You’ll be hard-pressed to find a better bass value than what either of these subwoofers offers...each sub reproduced deeper bass response that I could literally feel in my sternum; it shook the house!"

"This is the scariest subwoofer I’ve ever played with. I am not able to go to the limit on this subwoofer. It makes the fur on my arms stand up"

The Master Switch Reviews the PB16-Ultra

The Master Switch Reviews the PB16-Ultra

"Within minutes of testing it for the first time, we loved it unconditionally. Watching a movie through a 5.1 system, or listening to music, is revelatory and is some of the best fun we’ve had with a piece of audio equipment. The PB16-Ultra is the single best home subwoofer available today."
