Enjoy the Music Reviews the SB16-Ultra Subwoofer

“Setting up the SVS subs was easy and fun. I could feel the sub-sonic tones on the surface of my exposed skin, but I could swear I could feel my loose shirt sleeves vibrating against my arms. For those who desire more than a full-frequency range high-end system, spending more than the SVS's very reasonable price makes no sense. Highly recommended.”

Stereonet (Australia) Reviews the SB-3000 Subwoofer

Stereonet (Australia) Reviews the SB-3000 Subwoofer

“Clean and effortless sound. Performance was not only tuneful but tactile, with instruments not only heard but felt. If you're looking for couch-rumbling bass, that is still fast and tuneful, I strongly encourage you to look at an SB-3000 (or two). I wouldn't be surprised if your auditioning of subwoofers starts and ends with the SB-3000.”

AVForums Reviews the SB-3000 Subwoofer

“It’s remarkable how deep and powerful the SB-3000 is considering its relatively small cabinet. However, it never loses its sense of timing and precision, delivering pin-point accuracy and plenty of speed. It retains a refinement and musicality that is genuinely excellent but still delivers seismic levels of low frequency energy.”

Soundstage Praises the SB-3000 Subwoofer with a Reviewer's Choice Award

“Liver-massaging ultra-low bass. I felt I was simultaneously reaping the rewards of large and small woofer cones: slam and pressure, and nimble speed. Dug deep, letting me really feel the lowest notes in my chair with impressive punch and authority. This combination of intense punch with the feel of low-frequency extension had me turning it up loud -- and it was an exhilarating experience. The bass I heard 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 the most demanding bass heads.”

SVS SB-3000 Subwoofer Reviewed by HomeTheaterReview.com

SVS SB-3000 Subwoofer Reviewed by HomeTheaterReview.com

“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 is worth every penny and more.”

HiFi Choice (Poland) Reviews the SVS SB-3000 Subwoofer

”Easy to set up owing to its closed cabinet. Fantastic application to drive some more sophisticated functions makes it simple for the user no matter if it is for stereo or home cinema. Deep and massive bass is well controlled and amazingly neutral. Simply perfect for both home cinema and stereo experience.”.

Missing Remote Reviews the SB-3000 Subwoofer

“It just delivers. Music, movies, television, gaming; across all of the content tested, it always added that perfect thump to the room. Whether subtle, or the more across-the-chest variety, the SVS SB-3000 is simply brilliant. Tight and effortless, regardless of volume. You feel it. You hear it. I was not able to find a level which “broke” the bass, or left the SB-3000 breathless. I am sure it exists, in theory, just not confident it would be safe to be in the same room at the time."
