    “Managed to pressurize the room with its subsonic level bass very convincingly, producing chest-thumping bass ripples. As capable in producing the sound of loud explosions as in delivering delicate tuneful bass in the background music. Considering the combination of build quality, features, and performance, it is hard to imagine that you can get a better subwoofer at its price point.”

  • Reviews the SB-3000 Subwoofer

    "A seriously sophisticated audio device, one that can render subtle differences in bass inflection, but with the capacity to slam hard. The power of the sub comes on fast, in a violent way. I could feel the output through my chair, but it wasn't overbearing or exaggerated. Intense, with purpose and authority, is the way I would describe it. Blended beautifully with the front two channels while imparting solid bass reinforcement throughout the room. A remarkable performer. If you're looking for state-of-the-art, high performing subwoofer, with small proportions; the SVS SB-3000 has no competition."

    “It was not only amazing the kind of power such a small sealed cabinet could produce, and it could produce a lot. It was also the kind of control it had over the low end that really gave us the chills. It is undoubtedly an amazing piece of audio equipment and if you are dead serious at adding some quality low end power to your system, whether it be for movies or music, the SVS SB-3000 is the kind of subwoofer that will definitely leave you in awe.”

  • SB-3000 Subwoofer Receives The Master Switch's "Editors Choice" Award

    “What SVS have done with their DSP here is nothing short of miraculous. Quite simply, it leaves its competitors in the dust. Audio quality was meaty and muscular, and while it felt controlled, it never lost its sense of fun. We don’t think we’ve heard sound this good in a subwoofer below about $2,000. It knocked our damn socks off!

  • Positive Feedback Reviews the SB-3000 Subwoofer

    “There was really no comparison to the sound with the stock footers. I heard a cleaner, clearer presentation with better leading-edge definition, the transients were sharper. A couple of annoying occasional room resonances went away. Mid-bass was enriched, and timing improved. High-pitched metallic sounds such as cymbals, triangles, and chimes seemed purer, more vivid. Micro detail was enhanced, and easier to distinguish.”

  • Audioholics Reviews the SB-3000 Subwoofer

    "Packs a massive punch. Its 800-watt power plant and special driver allow it a long throw with very linear excursion so it can move an unexpectedly large amount of air comparable to that of 15” subwoofers in our testing. We found the 3000 Series to be a near-perfect marriage of manageable size, agreeable appearance, and serious performance."

  • HiFi (Netherlands) Gives the SB-3000 Subwoofer Five Stars!

    "This sub has an enormous amount of power and knows how to implement that power perfectly. All the bass tones that the SB-3000 performs sound tight, fast, detailed, full and deep. The only way you could improve the sound is to add a second one to create a stereo image. It is guaranteed to cost much more to find the same quality elsewhere. I can't help but give the SB-3000 five stars. The operation via the app is very useful, the sub is high-end looking and compact (for a subwoofer). The SB-3000 manages to produce enough violence with perfect timing and depth for abundant film and music enjoyment."

    "The bass I heard from this small box, unassuming yet nice to look at, bordered on the difficult to believe -- very fast, very tight, very deep, with more than enough output to fill my 15’L x 12’W x 8’H room with sound-pressure levels that would satisfy all but the most demanding bass heads."

  • (Poland) Reviews the SB-3000 Subwoofer

    "Massive deep bass with pinpoint control. In both multi-channel and stereo music, the SB-3000 showed that, in addition to the inexhaustible energy and range to the lowest parts in the bass, it is excellent at showing the variety of timbre colors, which should be especially appreciated by music lovers who intend to weigh the sound of their stereo system in the lowest components bandwidth."
