I miss the front light
I miss the front light on the 1000PRO.
It is a staple for 40 years in the classic audio enthusiast.
SVS might allow us Macintosh Blue meter fans to have a beautiful light in the dark + moody mood light. I love the audio old school meters and I may switch them off or cover them. So when I look at the new SVS in my Audio room I am missing the Blue light. Just have a velcro strip to turn it of for those who wish for it off. I am sad you lost the on light... Bring it back with velcro. Bless. Jeffrey. + the Phone App is mostly OKAY.

I don't have the knowledge to speak technically about this sub. But it does BOOM, HUGE upgrade to my definitive technology sub. Love this sub, customer service was excellent with all my questions, and this was very simple to hook and set up. I would definitely recommend this to anyone!

Outstanding performance and customer support.
Both the subwoofer (PB-1000 Pro) and the customer service have been outstanding. Shortly after placing the order, a customer service representative called to confirm one aspect of the order, which I was very impressed with, and the subwoofer's performance itself is outstanding. I have the subwoofer placed along the long side wall of a roughly 12" x 20" room, and it fills the room well with the low frequency sounds that were entirely missing previously.

Upgrade doesn't even begin to describe it
Coming from a BIC America F12 I thought I had decent bass in my small to medium size living room. As soon as I watched my first movie and listened to my favorite songs, I knew that I was missing out. Even the wife tolerates the LFE in movies because it isn't obnoxious and boomy, she stated "it sounds so much cleaner". I don't think I've ever heard a cleaner and more articulate sub in my life. I had some weird popping noises when I first installed it and an SVS rep immediately answered the phone and guided me through the phone and and gave some suggestions, turns out it was my wireless sub kit causing issues. Great job on this on SVS, you knocked it out of the park.

PB-1000 Pro
My expectations were very high as I am a previous owner of the Dual PB-1000. The 12” driver on the pro is definitely an upgrade from the 10” driver predecessor. I can hear low frequencies sounds that I never heard before from movies scenes that I watch thousands of times. I am impressed I missed those sounds my whole life, I just didn’t know they were there. Not even the PB-1000 could handle them. However, I am a little disappointed about the power of the pro version. The older version could easily beat the new version in volume. In my old pb-1000 dual configuration 50% volume on both was more than enough. With the pb-1000 pro, in a dual configuration, I have to set them both at max (0) to accomplished desired level. Well, I just wished I had more headroom like I had before. I am not sure why this is happening because the new version is supposed to have more RMS and Peak compared to the old ones.
I wanted to buy the PB-2000 pro, however, they are too big for me, in fact, in dual setup, they are too big for most people. I also wish, the PB-2000 pro had the speaker level input, it really makes a difference in base detail, if you use a separate amplifier to feed them. I have done a lot of testing and I found out that bi-amping + using digital coaxial rca to feed the lfe channel simultaneously gives you the best out of a subwoofer, for both music and movies. However, svs only gives speaker level inputs on the 1000-pro model, not a good idea ?.

Excellent upgrade
The pb1000 pro exceeded my expectations . I replaced an aging Velodyne cht12 that hit 25 hz. To be honest I was on the fence between the Monilith 10 and the original pb1000. So when I had seen the new model it seemed like a no brainer . The new amp and 12 in driver paired with a highly seed app.. I thought about the good old saying there's no replacement for displacement. Wow was I right the new 12 does an amazing job and I didn't realize. what I was missing with my older Velodyne but it was quite a lot. That all being said waiting on port plugs to see music performance in my system .While this is one of there lower models I would still consider it high end and would recommend to anyone looking for an upgrade.
