Rated 5 out of 5
I'm really enjoying the product, more than I thought I would. It looks like I prefer ported over sealed. Thinking about switching the system in my truck to ported if that's possible with my space limitations. I plan on upgrading from the SVS PB1000 Pro because I really want to know what more wattage sound like. B because I am clumsy, I know I'm going to kick my subwoofer someday and this model comes with a plastic and fabric grill. I've been assured the stock grill can take a beating. But this sub is right in my foot path and so I expect someday my foot will win. I wish I could but aa metal grill for it. I'd be cool if there were other premium options for upgraded grills too, for any of the models.

Great output for the money
Gets very loud for even a largish room and gets low enough to feel it in the couch. Very powerful and high value for the money.

Great sounding sub
The sub sounds great when used in my 5.1 surround setup. While my living room is an open concept, so probably bigger than what the PB 1000 pro is rated for, it sounds deep and accurate. I've had a PSW505 for the past 5 years before it died and I was pretty happy with it. The new sub has noticeably lower frequency response during explosions/ thunder while watching movies. To Polk's credit, they sent me a new amp, and so I had the opportunity to listen to both subs back to back, and analyze how each sounded with the same section of a transformer action scene. The Polk was boomier and hit hard in what I would guess to be the 40hz range, but it couldn't quite reach the floor shaking low parts of the PB 1000 pro. I haven't messed with the individual equalizer settings in the app yet, but I might reach out to SVS for some technical help or suggestions on that. To the dissatisfaction of my wife I decided to keep this sub despite getting my Polk back up and running. Hopefully SVS will offer a similar customer service experience if the situation ever calls for it!

I Love This Subwoofer
I have now had the PB1000 Pro for almost a year and can wholeheartedly state that this is the best subwoofer I have ever owned. I continue to be amazed at how powerful and accurate the sound is. I am using it in a room that is larger than recommended and it still performs amazing. It took a while and with help from SVS technical support to get it dialed in. I needed to use all three bands of the built in equalizer to smooth out the response and play a bit with the crossover in my AV receiver but I ended up with a fairly even response over the full range of the sub. I am using it in conjunction with a Martin Logan full range sound bar and the combination works really well with a minimalist look. Watching movies is exciting with the LFE effects exhibiting a visceral effect. Really low effects shake the room and floor. With music, the bass is surprising tight and accurate.

If you are on the fence in deciding to buy this subwoofer I can easily recommend the PB100 Pro and tell you you will assuredly love it as much as I do.

Nice Subwoofer fills in the bass well my system
So far so good. Still trying to setup the Parametric EQ part of the woofer. However, it sounds really great without setting this up.

My 1st experience with SVS
My 1st experience with a SVS subwoofer is awesome! Replaced my 13 year old velodyne deq-12 which I really liked also with a new new pb-1000pro and am totally amazed at the bass this thing produces in my smallish 20x12 7ft high ceiling room! You definitely can feel the bass! I'll recommend svs to anyone looking to get a sub for there home entertainment system!

Drops low, but way underpowered. I bought it on black friday sale, and i still feel it was overpriced. Way too much money for a paper cone subwoofer. The app is gimmicky, I added 2db at 65Hz and it started clipping. I zero'd it back out to flat response and let the Sennheiser Ambeo do all the setup work and I still clipped it. I was surprised by its low frequency extension, it just needed more power...a LOT more power!

Giving it 2 stars because it extends so very low!

I replaced it with the PB-2000 - a MUCH better sub! More power, aluminum cone, larger motor assy, no iphone app and a lower price! Once I set it up, I haven't adjusted it since. The PB-2000 has to work hard to fill the room, but never sounds like its struggling.

Using with a Sennheiser Ambeo Max soundbar in a 22' x 22' room with 11' ceilings.

My prized possession (so far)
I began my audiophile journey learning to build speakers because I could build a much better product for less money. At the very least I can tweak or upgrade a precon to whatever I want it to be. But my SVS subwoofer is the only component I consider perfect in every way, at least to what I want out of a subwoofer. It's one of the only stereo components I will hands down buy new, as is, without changing anything. I was lucky to find an open box PB 1000 Pro in brand new condition before the price went up, and it's everything I've ever wanted in a home theater subwoofer. The amount of fine tuning you can do on the app is phenomenal. I purchased the PB over the SB because the pets can be plugged and used as a sealed sub, and because the enclosure is much bigger so even in sealed mode it gives an incredibly big and low sound. Being able to turn the LFE off in order to use the cross over has been very handy as I test a ton of different speakers so being able to tailor the subwoofer output so acutely makes it invaluable for this purpose. The tactile response is a big deal to me, it easily pressurizes the room while retaining a clean sounding output. It's like having several different subwoofers in one. I demonstrate it every chance I get. I love SVS subs so much I bought my best friend 2 SB 1000s for Christmas. And of course she is in love with them. The customer service has been phenomenal as well. One of the RCAs broke off of my PB's amp and under warranty I received a replacement two days later. No shipping charge either. Somehow I lucked out living in a state where I'm not charged tax or shipping from SVS, which makes the deal even sweeter. I'm glad they offer their 1000 series at an affordable price, considering all the features and the quality of sound it's a steal. Especially since they upgraded the drivers to 12" as well as the amp to be accessable and controlled via the app. There's only two changes to my experience I hope for: that SVS will break into the car audio market and also carry smaller, women's sized shirts. You've made a very satisfied, lifelong fan of your products.

Great Upgrade!
This was purchased as an upgrade for the sub that was included in the HTIB I purchased years ago. I can’t believe I waited this long, it was such a big difference. The LFE response while watching movies and gaming is outstanding.

Very glad I went with the pro as well so I can quickly tune while watching/gaming late at night without waking up the wife and kids.

Right size and power to replace my Klipsch subwoofer. This one had great reviews and the cellphone interface looks interesting

This sub has excellent reviews and i'd seen it paired with the same ambeo soundbar i have with many positive comments of them working well together.

Looking for a sub that will be in a medium sized bedroom for my new Yamaha A-S801 100 watt receiver. Looking for bass that can be felt at low volume music as turning up the sound to LOUD is not an option. Is this too much sub for such a modest assignment? Thanks for any response.
A shopper on Jun 10, 2022
  Thanks for your inquiry. The SVS PB-1000 Pro is not too much sub for your modest setup. A premium sub like the SVS can be set up to integrate in the room and provide smooth non-boomy base extension with your speakers. Follow the owners manual to set the low pass crossover point and carefully set the sub output level. A correctly adjusted sub should not overpower the main speakers. Setting the right crossover point and output level may take several listening sessions with a variety of music to get it just right.
Do you sale the plugs for the holes in subwoofer ??
