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."

"Outstanding value. Powerful deep bass response. Built-in parametric EQ"
"... the SB13-Ultra is going on my short list for future upgrades to my home theater. Highly recommended."

Home Theater Shack reviews the SB-13 Ultra Subwoofer

"It is not just the aesthetics. It is not just the power. It is not just the precision and it is not just the level of detail that can be heard in the VLF range. It is all of these things combined that make the SB13 Ultra my Sub Zone Reviewer's Choice. There is simply no better performing subwoofer in its class."
"It is not only a gorgeous piece of hardware but it performs like no other sub I have ever heard."
"Knowing that there is a subwoofer that can reproduce incredibly dynamic bass with as much clarity, precision and 'Refined Brutality' for less than $2K ($1599 with free shipping to be exact) is a testament to the commitment of the SVS team and they should be applauded for it."
