Monster sound and excellent supoort.
I have a dedicated home theater that was in need of a new sub when mine crapped out. After a million reviews, and overcoming my tendency to buy cheap, it was clear that this SVS PB1000 was what I needed. I'm extremely satisfied with the setup build, sound and ease of the app. I'm now motivated to invest in a second and upgrade my system to Atmos. I'm truly a total amateur taking advice from all sources, but I've felt like I found a great company with an awesome support team - including an email from Gary, the SVS president.

Absolutely Incredible - No Regrets!
My Polk PSW125 12" fell victim to its design flaws after 11 strong years, so I did really well, but it was time for an upgrade. To the internet I went to start the arduous process of combing through reviews to see what was next. It didn't take too long to come across SVS and their subs. To be honest I had never even heard of SVS up until a week ago (don't judge!) After checking the website, watching some Youtube, and looking over the specs - it was a no brainer that SVS was my top choice. I chose the PB1000Pro (ported) as I primarily use my sub for movies and I wanted the extra range and pop that the ported model added. Plus, with the ability to easily plug the ports and reconfigure the sub through the app to a sealed unit, it made this like a 2 for 1 purchase for a nominal increase in price. After connecting and running Audyssey, it 100% took a slight bump up from where my Denon 3700H + Audyssey set things at, but a slight bump up from -16db to -10db made things come alive. It's literally night and day from my old Polk 12" sub. You can feel the bass all through the room and it is so well balanced. I could only place it on the side wall in 1 location - but with the variable phase and additional tuning options in the app I feel as though the location did not hamper my ability for performance. The app is the cherry on top that makes this sub even more incredible. Easy db adjustments from the couch, presets, advanced parameter adjustments, and quick support can't be beat. The presets make it so easy to pull it all back for late night watching and enabling "wife mode", music, or full out movie chaos. I couldn't be happier with my purchase and haven't been this happy with a purchase in a long time. I would love to add a second PB100Pro to the mix, I can't even imagine how incredible it would be! Problem now is that this sub has exposed my centre channel and now the cascade of change is burning strong. Perhaps the SVS Ultimate Front Stage will be in the future?! Hopefully more vendors will open in Canada so that I can hear them in person!

Had a paradigm v12 before
Had a paradigm v12 before this. It blew a voice coil so I returned it and got this. 1 week and it’s a league above the paradigm. It’s louder has much deeper and explosive bass and the voice coil don’t break watching movies lol. I’m sold

First time customer
This is my first SVS product. I did a ton of research and wanted to get an upgrade from what I had. I had a PSB 12” 200 watt sub that finally died. The rest of my system is B&W. I have 683 S2 tower fronts a nice full size center and B&W ceiling mount surround. It’s a 7.1 system with a Denon 4300 AVR. After hooking the new sub up and running the Audyssey speaker calibration I realized just how much sound we were missing. The SVS is clean sounding without being over bearing. I have a large room and the sub is in a corner location. I could not be happier with the product, the packaging and the entire experience. I emailed before hand to get information and they actually sent me a 5% off coupon code. I am probably going to replace my center channel with a SVS product as well. So far this company has done nothing but impress me!

Lots of goodness in there.
I recently upgraded from (2) 10-year old Polk PSW505s. This was my first item purchased from SVS and once I dialed in the gain and subtle room correction, I was amazed. Yes, the Polks were good and loud, but these are smooth and non-obtrusive to the room. The lows now seem to blend in smoothly with my ELAC bookshelf and center channel speakers plus Klipsh surrounds. Movies are way more immersive and music is even more dynamic. This may sound like a typical review with all of these fancy words and cliched expressions, but I am truly amazed and very appreciative to the quality and price crammed into this box. Bravo SVS.
