Wonderful subs!
Excellent low for my old stereo. Takes my extra speaker inputs. Extra thump and rumble when needed.

Very, very happy with this subwoofer
I carefully considered this and the sealed SB-1000. After days of reading reviews and watching YouTube videos, I went with the PB-1000 because it best suited my intended use. My purpose is 90% home theater and 10% music. I have a Denon DRA-800H and Klipsch RP-600M speakers in a carpeted room 15' wide and 28' deep, and now a single PB-1000 (with the Denon set 100hertz after some fiddling...default is 80hertz) . I originally bought a Klipsch SPL-100 to match the speakers I already owned, and was not happy with it. The controls on the SPL were basic, the sound was a little rattlely for lack of a better adjective, and other than shaking the room a little didn't add to the theater or hi-fi experience. Worst of all, the SPL wouldn't power on, regardless of settings, until the room was ear splitting loud. The PB-1000 has multiple connection options, better switches...make that waaaaay better switches, and has terrific, unassuming sound quality. By unassuming I mean it blends in perfectly. It's deep and rich, drums and bass guitar sound like they are live, and explosions and earthquakes on movies make me feel like I'm there. Also, the PB-1000 has an always on switch, but it's not needed. In standby mode, the PB-1000 kicks on with the first strum of a guitar string or any low frequency sound during a TV show or movie. I am very glad I returned the Klipsch and bought the PB-1000...and now I'm wondering if I should have tested SV bookshelf speakers before buying the RP-600s. I would definitely take advantage of SV's 45-day trial before making any more sound system decisions. Again, I am a very happy customer. The PB-1000 looks good, sounds awesome, has great build quality, the grill comes on and off easily (and stays put), and for my needs as well as hearing, a single PB-1000 sub works perfectly. It would be hard to find better at this price, and not many let one test drive it for 45 days...but I made up my mind to keep it after a few minutes!

These Subs should should be on the short list of high end Subwoofers for anybody looking for high end pieces.
Paired this Sub with my SVS PB 16 Ultra...together, capable of backing the screws out of the drywall!!! The performance of these Subs are extremely clean and powerful,
These Subs blend brute force with elegance.

Happy with the appearance and
Happy with the appearance and function of my new subwoofer. The stabilizers were too loose and I had to get some washers to tighten- you should mention this in your videos.
But my one serious disappointment was because when the delivery arrived the box said built in China. The reason I bought this was that I thought I was investing in American made speaker company. I know this may sound surly, just want you how I feel.

Sincerely, JG

Copious amounts of deep, clean bass!
I'm coming from a thoroughly satisfying 10" Polk DSW Pro 550 with remote control and wireless capability. It conked out recently, leaving a substantial void in the soundstage while watching movies. During it's time the compact 200 watt 10 incher was enough to pressurize my 17'x 23' room with hardwood floor and an area rug in the middle.

However, I always knew there was a higher level of performance to be had, and I'm glad I chose SVS as a replacement. The Polk was great, but this is definitely an upgrade. A more powerful amp, voluminous yet reasonably sized cabinet with excellent internal bracing and a no nonsense driver. It all adds up to taut, muscular bass with precision and minimal effort. This thing makes light work of what my "Open on two ends" room requires of it. And I didn't have to go to a higher price point to achieve these things.
I was always curious about this brand since hearing my friend's Ultra 16 a year ago. Though I could not afford that mammoth beast, I figured with SVS' reputation for quality even an entry level offering might be worth considering. I haven't been this right in a long time. With the 45 day in-home trial and generous 5 year warranty to sweeten the pot, you have what is arguably the best A/V deal on the internet. With superb customer service to boot!
Never been one for gratuitous praise or superlatives. But, when it's well deserved ya gotta give it up! Accuracy, true to life 20hz extension with authority, and nary a hint of distortion all for $500. Way to go Team SVS. Nice job!

Exceeds expectations
This is more than an entry level sub in my opinion, even if it's one of the smallest in the SVS lineup. BTW, small is relative, this is a sizeable and solid unit.
This is my 3rd sub in 30 years but first SVS. Build quality and appearance are amazing and sound is better than anything I've heard and blends perfectly with the rest of my system that does not contain any other SVS products. Customer service is also first-rate with prompt helpful chat. I suggest also buying the isolation feet which I did a couple years ago for my previous sub and moved them to this one. The ones that come standard are sufficient and not cheap, but the optional ones they sell really cleans up the base and provides good clean sound w/o a lot of rattling of other things in the room. I couldn't be happier with this purchase and don't know why anyone would consider something other than SVS if looking for a sub. I'm so impressed I will strongly consider them for other speakers in the future.

Outstanding Performance For the Price!
I purchased this and was a bit concerned that it would not be powerful enough as it is in a large great room in a house with an open floor plan. Frankly, this thing rattled the walls with powerful bass while watching an action movie. Highly recommended.
