Home Theater Subwoofer | SVS Ported and Sealed Powered Subwoofer


Adding a subwoofer to your home theater is one of the most noticeable upgrades you can make to the audio performance. SVS subwoofers unleash low frequency sound, or bass, that enhances the soundstage and sonic impact in a way no other component or speaker can duplicate. Movie scores are injected with added emotion and suspense, onscreen action like explosions, footsteps, the slam of a door or the revving of an engine are conveyed with palpable realism. You literally hear things you never knew existed.

Finding the right subwoofer means weighing several variables, including budget, room size, placement, personal listening tastes and more. Whether you’re researching subwoofers for the first time, replacing an aging subwoofer or upgrading to the ultimate bass experience, SVS has a subwoofer for you.
