  • 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."

    "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

    “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."

    "The SB-4000's bass was deep and powerful, bass transients were quick, and there was no thickening or bloat. Impact and dynamics were visceral. It enlarged the soundstage.
