Great sub and great customer service.

SVS is the best company in the world when it comes to customer service, but wait you don't pay for customer service right? Let me tell you their subwoofers are just amazing and worth every dime and penny, I owned PB 16 Ultra, PB 2000, PB 1000 Pro, and Dual PB 2000 Pros and nothing really comes on my mind when buying a new sub. Their SUB will make you feel in your chest. Customer for life for sure! In my picture left is PB 2000 Pro and right is PB 2000.

I purchased the PB 2000

I purchased the PB 2000 Pro from the SVS Outlet during their July sales event as an upgrade from my Bic Acoustech PL200 (which is still in use). The PB 2000 Pro has exceeded my expectations in filling my 450 sq ft living room with deep , great sounding bass. The SVS app is a great tool to assist in dialing in my new home theater system , which is taking a little time as my Klipsch R620F , Fluance bipole side surrounds and the PB 2000 go through their break in period. Eventually I'd like to add another PB 2000 as my budget allows. Thanks SVS for putting together a good product at a reasonable price!

SVS is the only place I’ll ever buy a sub from.

This is my third SVS sub now. Let’s just say I’m an audiophool. NAD amplifcation, Magnepan 1.7i, and Bluesound players throughout. Streaming Amazon Music HD. I’ll be buying more over time to augment a bluetooth network of players, and to fill dead spots in The Cave. I’m sure this is music to SVS’ ears, as it should be - they are music to mine. We’re music-centric but enjoy family time in front of the TV too, so we wanted a sub to augment our soundbar. I was a little concerned about ported subs for music, and in fact my other two subs are sealed (SB16 and SB1000). I needed not be. This sub is phenomenal. I played lots of genres putting it through its paces, at reference volume, and it’s as tight as any sealed box, but with amazing extension. Olivia Rodriguez’ Brutal punches you. K.Flay’s Four Letter Words fills the ears with pressure. The bass notes in Tangerine from Live @ Pyatt Hall will astound you. Clean and tight, no muddiness. Shows and movies thunder. The Sledge amplifier provides so much headroom I wonder if the amp can even be clipped. We have a pretty large family room, open all the way to the kitchen, with 9 foot ceilings. Call it 30 feet from the sub to the back of the kitchen where the pantry is. The lows find their way even into our pantry. That’s not remarkable, but what IS remarkable is its angled *back* towards the soundbar. When the box arrived, wife rolled her eyes at my new toy, and when I unboxed it she sardonically asked if it was a new end table for the recliner. It’s as high and deep if not about as wide as your typical end table. I was just bright enough, and it now sort of is; I’ve banned all objects on it. Seriously, this sub is flat amazing. Deep lows, controlled power, via the sophisticated yet simple app, and you can fine tune using SVS’ suggested settings for your rig. Even angled back to the soundbar, this puppy gets SPLs that you feel in your ear. I bought the isolation feet and highly recommend them. Do I want a companion for it, because it’s lonely? Yes. Can I sneak another end table into Fam Central? Sadly, prolly not. But if you can, you’ll be highly satisfied going dual. I’ve got a couple of dead spots due to this, but during setup it was pointed towards the kitchen and filled the space very nicely. And SVS is without exception the gold standard for support, service, and generally being the very best at all they do. A bright contrast from the bluetooth players and mesh router I have, both of which cause me endless frustration and disappointment, and with very poor support to boot. But I digress. In every single way I can think of, SVS makes the world’s finest subs, with world class support, and are easily the best value in the space. Others could learn a lot from SVS. 100% satisfaction…make that 99% b/c I want more of them.

Scary good!

Going from mismatched starter subwoofers to dual pb2000 pros has been an awesome upgrade. The power of these subs is intense, and I am hearing things in movies that I’ve never heard before! They have so much headroom that I found myself turning the other speakers down and the bass up. This sounds counterintuitive, but they sound so clean that I just want more of them. Use the presets for quick and easy setup of volume and EQ, get your levels set, and you have amazing speakers! These subs shine during movies, so test them with movies, not just music. Definitely go duals, as it makes a world of difference! They are massive, but once in place, they don’t feel too big. They pass the wife test as well once they are installed!
