The PB-1000 is an anomaly in the world of subwoofers. It plays below the levels of human hearing, down to 19Hz and lower, yet costs a fraction of what subwoofers with similar low frequency extension and output go for. Simply put, it’s the deepest, most effortless and authoritative bass you’ll find for under $500. No subwoofer comes close to offering this level of low frequency performance value.

Press Reviews

“The PB-1000 produces the kind of forceful, yet detailed bass that we would expect from more powerful and certainly more expensive subwoofers… If SVS's goal was to create a subwoofer that could deliver deep bass at a price that doesn't require deep pockets, then they have succeeded beyond all hope.”
AVForums, Review by Stephen Withers.
“Let's recap. Great price, check. Great performance, check. Great customer service, check. Three checks and the PB-1000 breezes into a winning spot in our 2013 Consumer Excellence Award competition.”
Audioholics, 2013 Consumer Excellence Award.
“The PB1000 handled its sweeps down to "feel it" level... the bass was potent and rich...and had a very clean presentation to boot. I could actually feel it in my chest...with powerful depth and impact.”
Home Theater Shack, Review by Jim Wilson.
“As subwoofers go, for $500 it's going to be hard for another sub to beat the PB-1000... Highly recommended.”
Reference Home Theater, Review by Chris Heinonen.
“I immediately noticed a positive impact on the sound... you can feel it in your chest. Movies explode, delight and frighten just a little more with a lower sub sonic signature.”
Audiohead, Review.
“...the pinnacle of value in home theater...To say that this sub digs deep would be a huge understatement...you will not be disappointed.”
Digital Hippos, Review by Dustin Orgill.
“The only incredible thing about its price is how low it is: just $499 for an incredibly well-engineered 10-inch sub capable of reaching down to an astounding 19 Hz.”
Technology Tell, Review by Dennis Burger.
“I don't need to come up with any flowery verbiage or clever analogies to sum up the PB-1000. Its performance speaks for itself... the best thrill ride I've gotten from a sub-$500 sub.”
Sound&Vision Magazine, Review by Brent Butterworth.
“The PB-1000 hits all the right notes…It outperforms nearly everything I’ve heard in this price range… It’s low-frequency punch with movies and music is indicative of subs that cost much more.”
AVProductReviews, Review.
“Probably the smartest buy in bass and that’s not just because of performance and price point. SVS’ customer service is legendary…To have something that inexpensive do that well down to 20 hertz was just really impressive.”

Owner Ratings & Reviews

Considering the low frequency extension and thunderous SPL output without sacrificing musicality, the PB-1000 defies expectations at every level. The front-firing driver features dual high-grade ferrite magnets and FEA-optimized internal motor technology that enable extreme excursion for high output with extremely low distortion. Performance of the 10-inch driver rivals that of 12 and 15-inch drivers housed in much larger cabinets.

Commanding 10-inch SVS High Output Driver

The lightweight cone material of the PB-1000 long-stroke driver reproduces massive LFEs and subtle music tones with lifelike realism, making the subwoofer a perfect option for both home theater and music lovers. Durable rubber surrounds also ensure long-lasting performance, even when the subwoofer is pushed to its performance limits for extended periods of time.

Powerful and Sophisticated Sledge STA-300D Amplifier

Driving the PB-1000 subwoofer is an integrated SVS Sledge STA-300D amplifier with a sophisticated DSP perfectly matched to the unique ported cabinet configuration, and an equalization curve optimized for enhanced transient response and room gain. Conservatively rated at 300 watts RMS and 700+ watts peak power, the Sledge amplifier maintains precise control of the subwoofer at all drive levels so you can push to reference volumes and maintain accuracy in frequency response. Challenge the PB-1000 with the most challenging musical bassline or soundtrack and it stays true to the source content without compromise. The advanced DSP engine also allows for fine tuning of audio playback and easy set-up and integration into any home theater or stereo system.

When it comes to filling out the lower octaves of our favorite audio content, few, if any, subwoofers approach what the PB-1000 achieves for the price. Its ability to convey the chest-thumping slam and room pressurizing LFEs, and also subtle and nuanced bass in music, TV and movie soundtracks defies expectations for a level of performance previously reserved for much larger reference subwoofers.

SVS 10” High Output Driver

With SVS, compact and affordable doesn’t mean compromising on performance. The 10” driver in the PB-1000 pumps out loads of deep and powerful bass with low distortion, for smooth and accurate performance on music and movies.

  • Long-throw suspension for high output at deep frequencies.
