SB-3000 Subwoofer Receives Sound&Vision's Top Picks Award

SB-3000 Subwoofer Receives Sound&Vision's Top Picks Award

"Performance, which was characterized by extreme low-frequency extension, massive output, and precision on transients. At one point I had to check my wiring to make sure I had disconnected my other four subwoofers—it was that impressive! Even at reference levels, the SB-3000 didn't break a sweat—each bass note hit with power, precision, and speed. I was completely blown away by my experience. It has no equal at its price."

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.”.

Reference Home Theater Reviews the PB-3000 Subwoofer

“Packs plenty of impact and depth, fills the room with thunderous bass. Fantastic performing subwoofer that does a wonderful job with movies and music. It fills out the lower octaves in music without drawing extra attention to itself, and you can feel it in your chest as it rattles the walls when watching movies. The PB-3000 gets an easy recommendation and might even stick around in my system permanently”

Video Magazine (Germany) Reviews the SB-3000 Subwoofer

"SVS has indeed managed to put the virtues of its flagships into a very compact and affordable subwoofer. Exemplary precision and transient response, it has what it takes to make even audiophiles salivate over a subwoofer. Those who mainly listen to music and watch concert videos will especially love the SB-3000."

Positive Feedback Reviews the SB-4000 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-2000 Subwoofer Review by HomeTheaterReview

SB-2000 Subwoofer Review by HomeTheaterReview

“The SB-2000 provided plenty of power while cleanly extending the lower registers smoothly and accurately. Provided all the impact and low frequency punch even the most action-packed movie might demand. For this price and at this size I really could not find a better subwoofer. It's fast, it's clean, and it's powerful. If the SVS SB-2000 fits your budget, look no further. It's in a class of its own as far as sealed subwoofers go.”

HomeTheaterForum Reviews the SB-3000 Subwoofer

"Maintained composure even when pushed for extended periods. Capable of playing far louder than I was comfortable listening, it’s amazing the amount of air this thing moves given the size. Literally shook rafters in rooms which are not designed for punishing sound playback. Recommended and well worth the asking price!"

PB-4000 Subwoofer Receives the Audioholics 2018 Product of the Year Award

PB-4000 Subwoofer Receives the Audioholics 2018 Product of the Year Award

"It is as much of a beauty as it is a brute, in that it looks and acts sophisticated but that is just a veneer that hides some truly explosive power. It exemplifies the high fidelity that has always been a hallmark of SVS subwoofers. Beauty, brains, and brawn; the PB-4000 has it all and earns our subwoofer product of the year."

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."
