Finally, A Micro Subwoofer Worthy of the Name SVS.

The challenges of designing a subwoofer capable of chest-pounding output at the lowest frequencies, while maintaining effective thermal and energy management in a micro-sized enclosure, has always been the holy grail of subwoofer brands. Previous designs were flawed with weak output, distortion, and uncontrolled movement of the cabinet itself.

3000 Micro is like a magic trick— small enough to fit anywhere and capable of delivering breathtaking bass from a shockingly compact 10-inch enclosure. For the first-time ever, a micro subwoofer that does not compromise on performance.

SVS engineers had to bend the laws of physics designing a micro-sized subwoofer capable of massive, pristine output in HiFi and home theater systems. Reference amplifier technology from the flagship SVS 16-Ultra subwoofers was applied in an 800 watt RMS, 2,500+ watt Peak Power Sledge STA-800D2 amplifier with discrete MOSFET output for effortless, on-demand current with unerring control.

Harnessing the colossal power are fully active dual opposing 8-inch SVS drivers connected in parallel to move in perfect unison for massive slam and output with crisp, musical transients. The usable surface area of two fully active 8-inch woofers firing in opposite directions unleashes performance on par with much larger subwoofers and the tight, punchy output obliterates multi-driver passive radiator subwoofer designs known for bloated, one-note bass.

3000 Micro also has brains to match its brawn. A 50 MHz Analog Devices DSP enables sophisticated control and custom frequency response curves for optimized real-world output and acoustically tuned room gain. It also enables advanced tuning and control via the SVS subwoofer DSP smartphone app.

Fully Active Dual Opposing 8-inch Drivers – Defy the Laws of Physics with Room-Shaking Output and Pinpoint Accuracy

A first-ever design for SVS, two fully active 8-inch woofers are mounted on opposite sides of the sealed cabinet and move in perfect unison to generate stunning low frequency output with crisp, musical transients. The usable surface area of two fully-active 8-inch woofers firing in opposite directions achieves performance on par with significantly larger single-driver subwoofers. Its tight, punchy output obliterates multi-driver passive radiator subwoofer designs known for their bloated and boomy sound.

fully active 8-inch woofers

By firing in opposite directions, the mechanical energy transferred to the cabinet is effectively canceled out. This creates a sonically inert environment and solves the longtime curse of micro subwoofers, which are known to “dance” or “walk” across the room.

The active dual drivers are connected in parallel to a single power amplifier. Each receives the same amount of current, ensuring pinpoint control and more precise, accurate bass. The use of aluminum throughout the woofer, from bobbin to cone, creates a lightweight, stiff, and thermally-optimized driver without resonances or extraneous vibrations.

Each high-excursion active 8-inch driver employs a progressive inverted surround to ensure maximum linear displacement. This is imperative for moving massive amounts of air and generating sound pressure levels you can feel at the deepest frequencies from such a small enclosure.

  • Precisely tuned overhung motor configuration for unerring woofer control at all drive levels
  • Proprietary injection-molded NBR surround built for extreme-excursion and longevity at reference playback levels.
  • Total Excursion (each driver): 24mm Xmax, 37mm Xmech
  • High-current 4-layer copper voice coil winding minimizes distortion and power compression, while providing effective heat dissipation and tuned magnetics for accuracy at high excursion
  • Formidable proprietary ferrite motor system generates high-flux-density magnetic fields to drive room-filling sound pressure levels with pinpoint transients
  • Dual 8-inch baskets with FEA optimized powder-coated frames for maximum rigidity, thermal conductivity, and mechanical damping

Innovative Motor Assembly - Maximizes Current Delivery for Active Dual-Driver Array

An oversized, vented motor structure is optimized for efficient thermal and mechanical-energy management in a confined space. Massive electromagnetic force produced by the motor, in symphony with the high current driving power of the Sledge amplifier, allows the 3000 Micro to maximize on the output potential of the dual drivers.

Lightweight and rigid aluminum vented cone with composite fiber dustcap generates massive output with pinpoint accurate frequency response.

Long-throw parabolic surround and proprietary injection molded gasket ensure longevity and allow extreme excursion for room-energizing bass.

Sledge STA-800D2 Amplifier – Massive Output with Precise Driver Control

A driver is only potential and requires and equally potent amplifier. Extreme challenges existed for SVS engineers when designing an amplifier capable of powering fully active dual 8-inch drivers at reference levels in a micro-sized cabinet. How to maximize SPLs while maintaining accuracy? How to optimize on the potential of room gain? How to maintain proper cooling while achieving massive SPLs?

Sledge STA-800D2 Amplifier

SVS met these challenges with an 800 watt RMS, 2,500+ watt peak power Sledge STA-800D2 power amplifier that combines the high-current output of discrete MOSFETs with Class D efficiency and the processing power of an Analog Devices DSP. The 3000 Micro subwoofer’s amplifier effortlessly produces sustained high-current output for the most difficult low frequency playback without clipping or bottoming out. Convincing, high-impact audio experiences without a trace of distortion.

  • High Current Output from Fully Discrete MOSFETs with the efficiency of Class D amplification allows the Sledge STA-800D2 amplifier to generate massive amounts of current enabling immense output with surgical precision.
  • Optimized frequency response curves for the sealed cabinet 3000 Micro allow the subwoofer to take control of a room and pressurize it with accurate, heart-pounding, acoustically tuned bass.
  • Sophisticated multi-band limiters enable the system to behave effortlessly move air and with complete control, even when played at extreme levels.

Sophisticated 50 MHz DSP Engine – Unrivaled Processing Power from a Home Audio Subwoofer

A 50 MHz Analog Devices DSP, normally reserved for high-end separate audio components, delivers sophisticated control and custom response curves optimized for real-world output and acoustically tuned room gain.

DSP plays a huge role in making the 3000 Micro subwoofer sound far bigger than its size. SVS engineers painstakingly crafted an in-room frequency response curve that fully maximizes on the potential of a room’s boundaries to produce greater output and deeper bass extension without bloat or boominess. The result, a subwoofer that far exceeds expectations given its size.

3000 Micro Smartphone App – Easiest Way Ever to Manage Subwoofer DSP and Control

The most convenient way ever to control volume, access multiple DSP functions, and program custom preset tuning profiles optimized for music, movies, gaming, and more. All accessible with a single touch. Adjust crossover frequencies, a three-band parametric EQ, polarity, room gain and more, all from your favorite seat.

I recommend this product

I'd rate it 20 stars if I could. What an amazing experience!

After doing some research and consulting with Ed at SVS, I bought a single 3000 Micro to supplement my floorstanding Focals (which are rated down to the low 30Hz region), and I can't even describe what a huge difference it makes in my system! The sound across the entire frequency spectrum just flows much better, and not only is there more bass impact as you might expect, but imaging and bloom have improved too. Why? I suspect it has a lot to do with allowing me to put the foam plugs into the ports on the Focals, which eliminated some mild chuffing and helped integrate the sub even more seamlessly. Things were up and running within a few minutes, and evolved comfortably over the following few days into a well-integrated presentation that smoothed out much of my room's uneven response.... A couple of months after the initial setup, I've made some small adjustments at various times and now feel it's as near to perfect as it can get. The sub is sonically invisible and visually it blends well into the corner it lives in. Speaking of placement, it almost didn't seem to matter where I put the 3000-- it sounded just as good in every position I was able to try in my room. The speaker is very fast with no noticeable overhang and very little resonance, but it packs a huge wallop and can vibrate the entire house when called upon to do so. Setup took some work and experimenting as it would with any sub, but was amazingly simple and fun because of the genius app, which allowed all the settings to be adjusted and/or recalled instantly from the listening seat. The controls allow for a vast amount of tweaking without being overwhelming, and since I could save multiple presets and quickly switch between them, I felt free to experiment with different approaches without any fear of messing up a good thing! My only "wish" for the app would be for one or two more bands in the EQ so I could apply a bit more fine-tuning to my slightly wonky room (perhaps a future app update?), but overall the EQ and phase adjustment tools were intuitive and extremely impactful. TIP: Don't ignore the phase, even 5 degrees made a noticeable difference for me! Ed and the team at SVS provided a flawless and amazing experience. From initial contact to purchase to after-sales setup advice, I couldn't have asked for better support. Communication was clear and extremely fast, and the sub arrived well-packed in record time. Ed's advice was spot-on, and he clearly has a vast knowledge of how the products work. I went into this experiment hoping for a mild tweak to the sound in my room and expecting a small-ish improvement in low-end extension. What I got was nothing short of a revolution, I honestly feel like I got an upgrade to my entire speaker system for a very low price! If you're considering adding a subwoofer (or replacing an older one), you can't go wrong with SVS!

The best product and best customer experience!

While deciding on my subwoofer, I was torn between two mini's that were being compared on every review. KEF KC62 and SVS 3000 micro. I kept reading reviews, dreaming about Subs. Almost purchased a KEF online since there were no SVS dealer or no stock for SVS mini in Singapore 3 months or so ago from today. Fortunately, I found that I can order the SVS 3000 Micro subwoofer on Amazon Singapore and the shipping charges were not very high. Only problem was the voltage. Yet I went ahead and purchased it. I contacted SVS asking them about the voltage and they sent me detailed instructions on which cable / connector to pull out and convert my Sub to 220V that work in Singapore. I am very impressed at the prompt response and the instructions. The package arrived, I was able to open up a brand new sub and put it back. The sound didn't seem right at first. I tried various combinations on the app. And then reached out to SVS again with the specs of my set up and the details or the receiver along with the surround speaker set up. What came back again very promptly from what I think is the best customer service team in the world was detailed instructions. Extremely precise and detailed on how I could set up the entire speaker system using YPAO since I am using Yamaha receivers. The other thing I realised that the speakers do take a time to break-in. My friend mentioned this to me and I found out that they actually sounded better and better as the weeks went by. The lows were more defined and the sound filled the room. When there were loud booms or bass I had to be very careful so that the room does not shake and the neighbours are not disturbed. I couldn't believe the output from this tiny cuboid. These Subwoofers blew my earlier Onkyo sub out of the water. I know now what I was missing to complete my complete Yamaha Soavo set of speakers that I sourced from Dubai. The Sub is currently hiding behind my leather chair. Invisible to the guests but filling the room with beautiful rumble when I need it. I am not a big fan or huge Subs. I think it just clutters the space with a black mass and most of them do not have a good finish and end up looking ominous. What I admire about this Sub is the beautiful, compact design and the finish. It is premium all the way. Very 'Applesque'. It is worth showing off to your audiophile friends. Controlling the sub with the app is a breeze once you know the right settings. Contact SVS and they will help you, I am sure. If I had ten stars, I would give it to SVS with my eyes closed especially to the customer service team. This review was long over due. I must speak about about the opposing drivers. They do not rattle and shake the micro sub at any given point. The sub does not move or jump around at high settings. You may feel the room shake and rumble but the cube does not seem to budge an inch. If you touch it you can feel it slightly. It is a marvel of engineering. I love the way the driver moves the air around. If you are looking for discretion with your set up, don't look any further. Go for SVS Micro 3000. Get the team to guide you. Kick back, relax and enjoy the sound!

I finally took the plunge

I finally took the plunge and added an SVS sub to compliment my Ultra Bookshelf speakers. The combination is truly magical! Not only is the bottom end fully fleshed out but the highs seem to sparkle more and the already detailed presentation seems to have even more air and ambience. Set-up and placement were straightforward and simple. The sub perfectly compliments the bookshelf speakers in both tone and sound staging. I was on the fence between the 3000 Micro and SB-3000 and although I can’t say how the later would have sounded in my system I can say without reservation that the Micro meets and exceeds my expectations for performance. It also goes without saying that it looks gorgeous!

A Happy Surprise

I suspected I was "missing" quite a bit by NOT having a sub (running KEF LS50 wireless, version 1), but wow! I spent a day fiddling with the SVS app, and the KEF app. And for my purposes, the KEF app was a better match. That said, what a GREAT sub. It's fast, works perfectly with the KEF system, and it has the STRONGEST of spousal endorsements. Thank you! I had held off buying a sub, because too many are TOO HEAVY for this aspiring "little old lady." The SVS 3000 Micro was easy for me to set up (bad back in all!), and once I got the settings optimized, it disappeared. Now, I'm going to have to move things around a bit so I can get another SVS sub. Thanks!
