Sonic overload, it was loud, clean, dynamic and hard-hitting. It shook the whole house! Based on its design, features, quality and performance, the SVS PC-2000 has earned our Highly Recommended Award., Dual PC-2000 Subwoofers, Read Review
“These subs do such a good job at producing low end, that sometimes there are scenes where the bass ramps up while the sound drops out, and the experience shifts from your ears to your chest cavity. If not for these subs, half of the experience would be missed.”

“I am gonna declare the SVS PC-2000 as refined as it gets at its asking price. If you are in the market for a powerhouse sub that’s gonna kick the snot out of you when you ask for it while painting magical soundscapes of detail rich bass at the same time, I wouldn’t hesitate a second to recommend adding this sub to the shopping cart and never looking back. Well done SVS.”

"I had to watch it again and again to make sure I wasn't just fooling myself. It really is that good… Solid performance, striking design, exceptional build quality and all at a price point that is remarkable for what you get."

"Sound depth, differentiation, and volume - everything was absolutely top notch/top level. (Tiefgang, Staffelung, Volumen – alles absolut auf Top-Level.)"

“The SB-2000 provided plenty of power while cleanly extending the lower registers smoothly and accurately. Provided all the impact and low frequency punch even the most action-packed movie might demand. For this price and at this size I really could not find a better subwoofer. It's fast, it's clean, and it's powerful. If the SVS SB-2000 fits your budget, look no further. It's in a class of its own as far as sealed subwoofers go.”

“The PB-2000 does everything you would want from a high-end subwoofer, and more. Build quality is top-notch, the sound is out of this world with bass that will shake your room but also hit really delicately when needed. I can’t believe it was able to replace my two older 10-inch subwoofers and actually hit harder.”

EnjoytheMusic, SB-2000, Read Review
“The SB-2000 went deep enough to satisfy any material that passed through and its bass was tight and pitch specific…can fight way above its weight class, an audiophile (or non-audiophile!) can hook up this subwoofer knowing they are getting the most for their money. Recommended? You bet!”

“It’s completely changed what I think about subwoofers and blows my mind in every way when it comes to making bass for music and movies. Best price to performance ration on the market by a long shot.”

LVLOne, SB-2000, Read Review
“You can’t get a better subwoofer for the price and it easily rivals bigger more expensive brands. This subwoofer can fill up sound in nearly any home theater setup you may have and is highly recommended to bring your entertainment to another level. The whole experience made us feel like we were closer to the action.”

“SVS, they are the name for subwoofers. You work your way up through other brands, but then you have SVS. Their products just WORK in every room set-up.” (Australian), SB-2000, Read Review
“We were amazed at the unit’s ability to pressurize our test room and provide the low frequency grins we were hoping for. The SB-2000 stands out for its hugely versatile form – a neat, beautiful looking design that will easily integrate with home décor, which is a big consideration for a lot of us (most of us) who don’t have dedicated home theaters. But its relatively small size belies its potent capability – we were seriously impressed with its output and response. A terrific option for those with 5.1/7.1 channel systems looking to transform their viewing experience, at a very reasonable price.”

“I admire the unobtrusive proportions, rounded edges, and curved perforated metal grille…The utter speed and dynamism of the SB-2000 was unexpected and enthusiastically welcomed... Smooth tactile bass flowed like warm sweet taffy. Additionally, the room gained a measure of ambiance and increased depth of perception. Soundly recommended.”

Widescreen Review Reviews SB-2000 and PB-2000 Subwoofers, Doug Blackburn (Print only)

SB-2000 - “The subwoofers SVS is offering have revolutionized bass for home theaters…great pitch definition and texture capabilities…Leave it to SVS to get much more bass out of a smaller box for 1/3 the cost of a big name subwoofer.”

PB-2000 - “It is honestly mind blowing to hear the depth, power and quality of bass SVS delivers for less than. Highly recommended, even if you were planning on spending much more on a subwoofer.”

PB-2000 – “The PB-2000 gave me a kick in the chest…It sounds great with both music and movies…excellent subwoofer for home theater, I recommend it heartily.”

SB-2000 – “Not only does it sound great and deliver plenty of clean, powerful bass, but its compact design allows me to place it in the most advantageous spot in my room (both for looks and acoustics). I recommend it heartily.”

For the price, the SB-2000 offers a deadly combination of potent power, tight articulation, deep extension, and good ole’ fashioned room-rumbling fun.
