AVReport.ru Reviews the SB-4000 Subwoofer (Russia)

AVReport.ru Reviews the SB-4000 Subwoofer (Russia)

"Brutal, but beautiful in its own way. Deep, smooth and superbly fast bass. Potent, clear and energetic with movies and pristinely natural with music. Output from the SB-4000 is so seamlessly and inconspicuously stitched with the voices of speakers it provides a clear transfer of details and an accurate attack. A rare quality for a subwoofer."

Positive Feedback Reviews the SB-4000 Subwoofer

"Fast, tuneful bass, huge amounts of slam and infrasonic bass extension. A welcome dollop of gut level satisfaction. The subwoofer delivered high quality, high end sound that was right at home in a $50,000+ system. SVS goes out of its way to produce products that offer excellent value, high quality sound, and a satisfying customer experience. SVS and the SB-4000 have my highest recommendation."

SB-4000 Receives AVS Forum Top Picks 2018 Award

“TOTALLY pressurized my theater. With movies, I felt the power of explosions in my heart and head! Like I was getting hit with a sledgehammer in the chest! These subs also made my living room sound like a live show, which is all about feeling the music and that means you have to have killer bass. A Top Choice no doubt about it. A+.”

SB-4000 Subwoofer Receives Stereoplay’s Highlight 2018 Award (Germany).

"Galactic good. Blended seamlessly with multiple speakers and it showed sovereignty in all aspects. Deep bass notes were crisp and clean with no overhang. Its high dynamic reserves gave the SB-4000 a nonchalance and we never got the feeling of reaching its limits. SVS SB-4000 is one of the best subwoofer offers ever, especially considering its moderate price. It can be deep and precise, even with its monster thrust and the immense power reserves make it suitable for home theaters or audiophile systems."

HXOS+ SoundVision (Greece) Review the SB-4000 Subwoofer

HXOS+ SoundVision (Greece) Review the SB-4000 Subwoofer

“The SB-4000 is a "scary" subwoofer full of energy. From the very first Hz onward, mainly felt in the chest and your belly, to the last ones around the cut-off frequency, comfort and a velvety timbre are the dominant factors. No matter how hard we tried we could not make it reach its limits.”

HomeCinemaMagazine.nl (Netherlands) Reviews the SB-4000 Subwoofer

"With the SB-4000 you get a subwoofer that is immensely powerful and dives very deeply - and that also works smoothly in large spaces. It is also incredibly fast, so that bass is served accurately and compellingly. At the same time, it is also able to subtly support your surround speakers. It is not only suitable for rough work. We never thought to stick this label to this giant, but it is ... yes, refined."

High Def Digest Reviews the SB-4000 Subwoofer

"An exceptional subwoofer capable of producing incredibly clean and powerful bass. The SB-4000 can really bring the thunder…slammed me with impressive impact…just about shook the walls of my house apart and equally adept with music as it is with car crashes and rocket blasts. It can reproduce deep cello notes with crisp clarity just as well as it can deliver an earth-shaking explosion. Highly Recommended to anyone looking for a high-end subwoofer without an exorbitant boutique price tag."
