What customers say about "Size & Weight"
SVS PB-2000 12" 500-watt Powered Subwoofer (Single)
  • Nice looking, heavy and big - the real deal.
  • This subwoofer is a monster in sound and in size (it's HUGE) and I can't say enough wonderful things about it.
  • This thing is huge! Too big considering its performance.
  • The only downside may be its size, but with ported subwoofers, size matters.
SVS PB-1000 300 Watt DSP Controlled 10" Ported Subwoofer (Black Ash)
  • Great medium sized sub for a small room
  • Powerful and smooth. Rather large but I have enjoyed it very much.
  • Check the specs to make sure its physical size won't dominate your room
  • Really, its huge. The sound quality is very crisp, but the size really limited the placement options in my room.

What customers say about "Audio"
SVS PB-2000 12" 500-watt Powered Subwoofer (Single)
  • This sub woofer is amazing, i listen to a lot of bass heavy music so the upgrade from my 8 inch 100 watt Yamaha to this was much needed. this sub woofer can pump out super low frequencies with ease.
  • Its ability to switch frequencies on the fly is what differentiates it from other sub woofers on the market. when listening to heavy bass EDM such as G Jones, Tipper, or Bassnectar it performs wonderfully and can create massive sound pressure in my room with no problem
  • Good sub that delivers solid low frequencies.
  • Punchy, tight and accurate sound down to about 60hz, Significantly worse from there down.
  • The low frequency sound gets very muddy and sloppy at times with certain music. Especially with hip hop/trap/trance/deep house
SVS PB-1000 300 Watt DSP Controlled 10" Ported Subwoofer (Black Ash)
  • It delivers as much low frequency punch as I will ever need in my (1,500 cubic-foot) home theater room, and the detail is superb.
  • Nice detailed sound for a ported woofer and is very powerful. Perfect for a small to mid size theater.
  • The lower frequencies never sounded more natural in my 25X50 living room, and yes, powerful enough to be felt when called for
  • The low frequencies from it just did not cut it, I hate to say it but the lowly BIC actually did sound better and fuller.
  • Not the most powerful sub out there but for the budget it's really impressive.

What customers say about "Features"
SVS PB-2000 12" 500-watt Powered Subwoofer (Single)
  • Very articulate bass with excellent control and dynamics.
  • The oak finish also looks fantastic, so if aesthetics are a concern do not worry.
  • RCA input quit working after a few weeks.
  • The veneer finish is a little cheap, moderately easy to peel at the edges. Knicked the corner when carrying the sub into another room and it peeled back.
SVS PB-1000 300 Watt DSP Controlled 10" Ported Subwoofer (Black Ash)
  • The finish is beautiful! Well constructed and will look great anywhere.
  • For $500, I don't think you will find a sub-woofer with all the features this one offers. Take a look and see for yourself. This was more money that I had originally budgeted, but I am sooo happy that I went with SVS!
