  • The Pixelated Gamer Reviews the SB-1000

    "The SVS SB-1000 is an absolute workhorse and decimates the competition anywhere near its $500 price tag. Its compact size allows it to be placed just about anywhere, perfect for small to medium sized rooms. The sealed design and advanced DSP on-board delivers outstanding responsiveness, where each bass hit from the durable 12″ driver is shockingly fast and clean. This model shines in precision and clarity, delivering a wonderfully balanced experience. As it stands, the SB-1000 sub is the undisputed king at its price point and simply a phenomenal performer."

  • HiFi (Netherlands) Gives the SB-3000 Subwoofer Five Stars!

    "This sub has an enormous amount of power and knows how to implement that power perfectly. All the bass tones that the SB-3000 performs sound tight, fast, detailed, full and deep. The only way you could improve the sound is to add a second one to create a stereo image. It is guaranteed to cost much more to find the same quality elsewhere. I can't help but give the SB-3000 five stars. The operation via the app is very useful, the sub is high-end looking and compact (for a subwoofer). The SB-3000 manages to produce enough violence with perfect timing and depth for abundant film and music enjoyment."

  • SB-1000 Awarded "Best Subwoofer for Small Spaces" by Wirecutter

    "Measuring 13½ by 13 by 14⅝ inches (HWD), it’s compact enough to hide under many end tables, yet this 12-inch subwoofer actually exceeds the performance of some larger subs we tested. Its punchy, well-defined sound makes it better for music than for action movies, but it’ll do a respectable job with anything you play through it."

  • HFC.com (Poland) Reviews the SB-3000 Subwoofer

    "Massive deep bass with pinpoint control. In both multi-channel and stereo music, the SB-3000 showed that, in addition to the inexhaustible energy and range to the lowest parts in the bass, it is excellent at showing the variety of timbre colors, which should be especially appreciated by music lovers who intend to weigh the sound of their stereo system in the lowest components bandwidth."

  • 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

    “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.” Read Full Review
  • 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.”

  • 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."

    "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

    “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

    "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 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."
