SVS is one of audio enthusiasts’ favorite brands when it comes to rattling the foundations for relatively little money. But until recently, those enthusiasts had to have quite a bit of spare space to get these subs into their homes.
SVS has demonstrated a renewed focus lately on those of us with smaller rooms — and smaller budgets — as evidenced by the company’s new SB- and PB-1000 subwoofers. For the SB-1000, size was paramount, but not at the expense of deep, pounding bass. Says the company’s press release:
Small subwoofer cabinets are not conducive to big bass sound, which presented a challenge for SVS engineers when designing the 13″x13″x13″ sealed enclosure for the SB-1000. Refusing to sacrifice performance at the expense of décor-friendliness, SVS packed the micro subwoofer cabinet with a front-firing 12″ driver with dual high-grade ferrite magnets and FEA-optimized internal motor technology for high output with extremely low distortion. The lightweight cone material of the long-stroke driver reproduces subtle audio tones with lifelike realism, making the SB-1000 a perfect option for serious music lovers.
For those that need more power and have a little extra floor space, the PB-1000 is there for you
Deep bass extension and output between 19 Hz and 270Hz (+/- 3dB) is usually the domain of hulking subwoofers costing far more than $499. The PB-1000 offers a breakthrough value for low frequency performance with a front-firing 10″ driver and 3.5″ high-flow port with inner/outer port flares. Years of intensive research and optimization of enclosure dynamics, build materials and cabinet design led to this significant advance in subwoofer performance for the price.
These new subs are now available for $499 each directly from the company’s website.
