"From its ungodly output capabilities, true 20Hz extension, and ability to play clean and distortion free, the PB12-Plus DSP has truly earned the right to be called a 'subwoofer'."Audioholics, 2010 Product of the Year - Subwoofer Category, Review by Paul Apollonio.
"The SVS PB12-Plus is truly a chameleon among subwoofers. Its multiple port tunings and parametric EQ mean it can work well in any room with any speaker system. Its build quality is on par with the most expensive products available and it looks great too. I'd have to say SVS has hit this one out of the park."Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity, Review by Chris Eberle.
"The PB12-Plus at least matches the performance of any subwoofer in this test, and its price is about 40% less than that of the next-least-expensive sub we tested. If you've got the space for this behemoth, it's probably the best deal going for a high-end subwoofer."Sound & Vision, Review by Brent Butterworth.
Owner Ratings & Reviews
The ported box PB12-Plus has enough sonic muscle to effortlessly fill any home theater with low frequency output below the levels of human hearing, where it can only be felt, while remaining musical and amazingly detailed.
Commanding 12-Inch SVS High Output Driver
Equally suited for music and home theater, the PB12-Plus powered subwoofer boasts a 12-inch front-firing Plus Series driver with dual high-grade ferrite magnets and an FEA-optimized motor for distortion-free performance at the most punishing drive levels. Dual linear-roll spiders and stitched parabolic surround allow the PB12-Plus to generate incredible output through extreme excursion capabilities while maintaining control over the ultra-light and rigid composite cone, so it can stop on a dime with no overhang.
Power and Sophisticated Sledge STA-800D Amplifier
Conservatively rated at 800 watts RMS and 2,300 watts peak power, the Sledge STA-800D DSP amplifier inside the PB12-Plus subwoofer delivers effortless power for maximum SPLs and sonic impact in movies and music, while maintaining pinpoint accuracy of frequency and transient response. It also has brains to match its brawn. A sophisticated DSP offers an array of filters and volume, gain, and phase controls for fine-tuning performance, and the efficient Class-D design consumes less than half-a-watt of power in stand-by mode.
Variable Port Tuning
Rated at 16-250 HZ +/- 3dB, the PB12-Plus subwoofer features variable port tuning so you can adjust output and extension based on listening preferences. For connections, the home theater subwoofer features a stereo line-level RCA and balanced XLR input/output connections along with an 80Hz high pass filtered output connections, continuously variable volume and phase controls, and three top-firing 3-inch high-flow flared ports with large radius inner and outer flanges.
Deft, yet powerful, the SVS PB12-Plus subwoofer delivers deeper low frequency extension and greater output than any ported box subwoofer in its class. Musical bass is rendered with subtlety, nuance and toe-tapping aplomb while movie content is brought to life with seat-rumbling slam and impact as well as mood-enhancing low frequency effects.
SVS 12" High Output Driver
Now in its 5th generation of refinement, the exclusive SVS Plus-12 woofer delivers audiophile-grade sound that is unmatched at this price point. In fact, this driver is so overbuilt, our R&D engineers had to push it with over 2000 watts before it even broke a sweat. From this firm foundation of rugged reliability, the Plus-12 driver delivers exceptional linearity, low-distortion, and excellent detail.
