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

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."

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."

Reference Home Theater Reviews the SB-4000 Subwoofer

"The SB-4000 does exactly what I want in a sub: make my speakers sound like they play down to 20Hz without any effort or strain by completely disappearing. It offers the same level of impact that I’ve heard at live concerts…and it has helped me discover how much deep bass I was missing from everything. A wonderful sub and highly recommended."

"The lowest octaves are rendered with incredible detail and power. From a relatively small cabinet, it produces more than enough output for a big home theater and its tight and precise sound is also excellent for music. Brutal SPL capabilities, easy-to-use mobile app and flawless design make this a rare and elite audio product."
