  • YouTuber “Zero Fidelity” Reviews 3000 Micro and SB-1000 Pro Subwoofer

    "You definitely get your moneys worth with either of these subwoofers. For under $1,000, the 3000 Micro is great for music and home theater, and gives you natural low bass extension that much larger subwoofers deliver at double the cost. The SB-1000 Pro sounds much larger than it’s physical size suggests, and is a complete game changer when it comes to music and movies. Can’t go wrong with either products and I highly recommend!"

  • Residential Tech Today Reviews the SB-1000 Pro Subwoofer

    "A capable workhorse. I can’t believe bass like this exists under $500. Run, do not walk to your SVS dealer and pick one (or two) up. If you’ve got the budget, feel free to spend up in their line, as well. You won’t be disappointed."

  • Reviews the 1000 Pro Series Subwoofers

    "Performed extremely well with testosterone-fueled cinema, room-shaking, thump-in-the-middle-of-the-chest low-frequency pressurization. Both subwoofers beautifully resolved musical bass notes, with excellent attack, decay, sustain, and release. I highly recommend both the sealed and ported versions of the SVS 1000 Pro Series. At their price points, there isn’t anything I rate higher."
