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

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."

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.”

Elrief1 Reviews the PB-2000 Subwoofer (Youtube)

"The PB-2000 does everything you would want from a high-end subwoofer, and more. Build quality is top-notch, the sound is out of this world with bass that will shake your room but also hit really delicately when needed. I can’t believe it was able to replace my two older 10-inch subwoofers and actually hit harder."

SpareChange Reviews the PC-4000 (Youtube)

SpareChange Reviews the PC-4000 (Youtube)

"Delivers a great combination of hard-hitting bass and ultra low-end rumble. Quick, hard-hitting tactile bass that can give your body a nice little massage while you watch a movie or listen to music. Really broadened the soundstage and added a whole new dimension to my auditory experience."

KSpaceGuy Reviews the PB-4000 Subwoofer

KSpaceGuy Reviews the PB-4000 Subwoofer

“This subwoofer sounds phenomenal. For a 13-inch driver to sound as crisp and accurate as it does is just a testament to SVS engineering prowess. Plus, the PB-4000 hits down to 16Hz with authority. Action movies, explosions, car races, helicopters, it doesn’t matter what, the subwoofer just immerses you and makes you feel things your would normally just miss. It just doesn’t get any better than this.”

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."

Hemmabio (Sweden) Reviews the PB-4000 Subwoofer

"Massive, powerful, controlled, forceful, extremely deep, detailed, nuanced, it’s a lot of words in my book and they’re all positive. An extremely competent subwoofer from start to finish for all occasions. Whether you need to integrate with bookshelf speakers, in-wall speakers, or big floorstanders, the PB-4000 will support them in a fantastic way."
