Product Information

Delivering Incredible Slam, Impact, and Extreme Bass Output

The PB-2000 500 Watt DSP Controlled 12" Ported Subwoofer provides a low-end foundation for any home theater or music system. Borrowing extensively from the legendary SVS Ultra subwoofer line, the PB-2000 sets all the performance benchmarks for a subwoofer under $1,000.

Movies have an added dimension of explosive impact with sound effects and mood altering soundtracks. Music becomes a more immersive experience where bass lines and percussion come to life with toe-tapping, head-nodding results. Designed for the most demanding audio palates, the PB-2000 subwoofer extends all the way down to 17Hz and easily handles reference volume levels without a hint of strain.

The PB-2000 features a front-firing 4" high0flow port with inner/outer port flares for extremely controlled bass with palpable slam. Its Sledge STA-500D DSP amplifier includes specs and features normally found in subwoofers costing much more. Conservatively rated at a robust 500 watts RMS continuous and 1100 watts peak dynamic, the amplifier features a sophisticated DSP with an array of filters, volume, gain, and phase controls for fine-tuning performance.

At the heart of each subwoofer is a rigorously engineered 12" driver with dual high-grade ferrite magnets and FEA-optimized motor for distortion-free performance in any system. The PB-2000 is one of the best subwoofers for 5.1 home theater and all other surround sound systems.

Sledge Amplifier STA-500D

The Sledge STA-500D is the sonic engine that brings an unprecedented amp technology and sophistication not found anywhere else at this price point. On sheer power alone, it effortlessly punches out 500 watts RMS and 1100 peak watts.

Quick, smooth, and precise digital signal processing at all drive levels. Plus, flexible connectivity for easy setup and integration into your home theater or stereo system. Include an energy saving standby mode of less than 0.5 watts, and pair it with a freshly designed, exhaustively tested SVS 2000-series driver, and you've got yourself a never-before-at-this-price sonic package.

SVS 12" High Output Driver

Designed from scratch and optimized through exhaustive testing until it delivered unprecedented performance, the powerful 2000-series driver does SVS proud.

Matched and maximized to its Sledge amplifier, it effortlessly delivers the STA-500D's precision, dynamic flexibility, and raw punch. The result: the driver delivers higher output, improved linearity, and lower distortion, which means loads of clean, precise, deep powerful bass for your movies and music.

Best subwoofer I have ever owned. The PB2000 taught me a real subwoofer is supposed to sound like.

With the budget I had, I did a bit of reading, and this came up trumps in the researh. Although I went over a little, I am so glad I did. Fantastic results. More so that I added the sound isolation kit, and it really works a treat. Just awesome...

I was looking for sub for approx 20x20 open layout room. Crutchfield sales rep agreed to trade my less than a year Klipsch because it was not producing enough bass. For size of my room, the sales adviser suggested SVS sub with non-sealed design. When it first arrived I thought what have done? Where do I find space for this box? It looked like it was purchased from out-of-business AMC movie theater inventory. I did some furniture rearrangement to fit this big box. After setting EQ and crossover, I watched the Mission Impossible on Amazon Prime; and what amazed me is how deep this sub can go w/o shaking or distorting. Nice clean bass. Just make sure you have space for this box.

Big Sub With Big Bass
Purchased the PB 2000 a few weeks ago and very impressed with its ability to add so much to my HT system. Yes it is a big sub but worth it if you have space in your room. I have spent a bit of time with placement in room and adjusting the crossover / level settings within Marantz SR7012 to make sure it blends with B&W 603 S3 fronts & M1 surrounds. Wow worth every sent spent to purchase and worth taking the time to tune to room. Watch 4k Movies / Netflix / Sky Sport / Listen to SACDs / Vinyl etc and all have added weight and clarity to the sound that wasn't there before. So impressed I am saving for a second PB 2000

Home theater is my passion and hobby. My last home setup I used Paradigm products which were good......but not near as good as SVS. I checked out many many speaker systems, but the piano finish along with the performance are in a class by themselves

Deep, powerful BASS!
This replaced my B&W 200 watt subwoofer. I also had a small Mirage 100 watt sub running in my home theater system. I eliminated both of these when I put this sub in. My room is 23'X26' (600 square feet). This sub blows the other subs away! Really deep and powerful and I am only running it at just over half volume. This has no problem filling my room with gorgeous thump. I feel a whole lot more during a movie than before. When a transformer runs you feel each time his foot hits etc. Very impressed.

As I already own one pb2000 I wanted to sell my Polk HTS12 2 SUBS which I was using it with my AVR. Finally I sold them & bought the second pb2000 since I was so impressed with my first one. I have to admit that SVS us like a tank which fires like a Canon. All stars for SVS.

Great product and Service
While Svs products may be a premium price; you get a premium equipment and service. I will likely buy from them in the future as well as advise friends and people around me to give it a shot.
