Product Information

Reference Subwoofer Performance Hits New Lows. Again

2000 Pro models replace the most popular SVS subwoofers of all time, and since we don’t believe in anything less than a complete reimagining, they represent a massive performance upgrade over the original 2000 Series in every way. Jaw-dropping deep bass extension and massive output with stunning musicality that will delight both audiophiles and home theater fans. Reference subwoofer performance has never been available at this price range.

 A sophisticated 550 watts RMS, 1,500+ watts peak power Sledge STA-550D DSP amplifier, innovative new 12-inch high-excursion SVS driver and optimized dual ported cabinet design take control of a space with amazingly deep and room-filling output without a hint of distortion, even at reference playback levels.

PB-2000 Pro features convenient control and custom presets via the SVS subwoofer DSP smartphone app for Apple, Android, and Amazon devices. The SVS app is the most convenient way to control volume, access multiple DSP functions and program custom presets for music, movies, gaming, and more. An ideal solution for reference bass in audiophile music systems or home theater surround sound systems, the PB-2000 Pro sets all performance benchmarks in its price range while outperforming much larger and more expensive subwoofers.

Breathtaking Output and Deep Bass Extension with Pinpoint Control and Accuracy

Featuring technology from the flagship SVS 16-Ultra Series, winners of nearly every industry and media award as the top subwoofers worldwide, the PB-2000 Pro unleashes breathtaking output and extension without ever sacrificing driver control or frequency response accuracy.

All New 12-inch High-Excursion SVS Driver – Sonic Sledgehammer with Finesse

Completely redesigned 12-inch SVS driver delivers massive low-frequency output with unerring accuracy and transient speed. An aluminum vented cone with exceptional stiffness to mass ratio and a proprietary injection molded extreme-excursion surround ensure flawless pistonic motion for flawless control and accuracy.

  • Dual ferrite magnet motor assembly weighing over 15 lbs generates massive amounts of magnetics to produce extreme driver excursion without losing control. Effortlessly achieves extension below 20 Hz without distortion.
  • Lightweight and rigid aluminum vented cone with composite fiber dustcap creates room-energizing SPLs while maintaining control even at the highest drive levels.
  • Long-throw parabolic surround using proprietary injection molding allows extreme excursion for bass you can feel while preserving drive unit longevity.
  • Aluminum pole piece extension improves thermal management properties for exceptional heat dissipation.
  • Dual layer voice coil design maximizes linearity and accuracy at full excursion while minimizing distortion and power compression.

 

Sledge STA-550D Amplifier – Effortless Power and Absolute Command

Conservatively rated at 550 watts RMS, 1,500+ watts peak power, the Sledge STA-550D amplifier maximizes the full potential of the 12-inch driver with effortless power and precise control. The innovative design combines the efficiency of a Class D amplifier with the ability to move colossal amounts of current through the fully discrete MOSFETs for outstanding real-world subwoofer performance at all drive levels, in any room.

  • High Current Output from Fully Discrete MOSFETs with Efficiency of Class D Amplifier allows the Sledge STA-550D amplifier to move massive amounts of current enabling immense output with surgical precision.

  • custom presets can be saved for movies, music and more so you have one-touch tuning optimized for your listening preferences.
  • 3-band parametric EQ controller allows precise adjustments for frequency slope and Q factor down to the single Hz level with four different slopes, so users can improve performance by eliminating peaks, nulls, and other room issues.
  • Variable Port Tuning Modes with customized frequency response curves for “Standard” and “Sealed” allow tuning for maximum output or deep bass extension and transient speed.
  • 2-way feedback shows updates in real time on both the app and rear panel subwoofer interface.


Rear Panel Intelligent Control Interface (ICI)

Intelligent Control Interface (ICI) on the rear panel of the 2000 Pro Series cabinets provide control options for the subwoofer’s most critical functions. Adjustments can be made for volume based on listening preferences and content to achieve full and balanced bass response.

Other features of the ICI include a low pass filter frequency to ensure smooth sonic transitions and seamless blending with loudspeakers and phase control to shift timing of subwoofer output to align with main speakers or additional subwoofers.


Acoustically Inert and Rigidly Braced Ported Cabinet Design

Extra-thick MDF front baffle and extensive internal bracing in the acoustically optimized PB-2000 Pro Series cabinet create a resonance-free environment that serves as a blank canvas for uncompromised subwoofer performance. Acoustic insulation eliminates all coloration or resonance from the cabinet, even when the deepest low frequencies are played at reference volume. Includes protective, non-resonant extra-thick ABS grille and custom iso-elastomer feet for reducing noise artifacts within a room.

I can feel the air move
I had found a Klipsch 12" at Costco for $250. I figured that at $250, I could buy two and work with them. After finding out that I could return it several weeks later, I decided to bring it home and listen to it. I did and It left me feeling like something was missing.
That night, I was online when I came across thes SVS PB-2000. Sure it cost more, but was it worth it. I found Youtube videos that said it was, but I couldnt hear it for myself. SVS in home listening pushed it over the hump. I bought it and it came quickly. I plugged it in and John Wick, the Expendables, and U-572 told me to keep the SVS. I could feel it pushing the air around. The Klipsch went back. You get what you pay for.

Earthshaking bass for Home Theater
Powerful deep ground shaking bass! Turned my HT setup into a full on movie theater. You feel every quaking step Godzilla takes. It's absolutely incredible.

Great sub!
First of all, like so many others have said, the customer service level throughout the buying process was top notch. Scott was incredibly patient and always quick to respond and his help alone has gained SVS a customer for life.

Now for the sub. I was coming from the PB12-NSD that I picked up in 2019. I loved that sub, but wanted the ability to run duals in the future and had to upgrade with the PB12 not available anymore. Upgraded to the PB-2000 Pro and am very happy with the increase in output. This thing punches quite a bit harder and in my space - cleaner! I was a little surprised at how much "quicker" the bass felt and am 100% satisfied with this upgrade. I will eventually add another, but for now am very happy with the upgrade.

The missing piece
I bought the PB-2000 Pro to upgrade from my polk sub, and it completely changed my system! Great for musical bass and huge deep LFE moments, I couldn't be happier. It fills my basement with a ton of bass!

Solid, solid subwoofer
So much punch out of this sub, it's amazing. Just figuring out the app which is a nice feature when listening to music. The feet stabilize the sub and I don't get any unwanted vibration. It's a great match for the Prime Tower Surround that I bought to complete my system.

This is my first real
This is my first real sub and I've only had it a few weeks, so it may be too soon to comment. That said, so far I'm quite impressed. In a 17X30 LR, this unit can make you feel the rotor blades whirl as the helicopter flies by. With my new 5.1 system featuring all SVS speakers (Prime towers/Ultra center) I'm now listening to more music (previous 20+ year old Bose system was really poor for music and apparently not much better for movies) and the PB 2000 seems to handle that pretty handily as well. I'm very pleased with my SVSs and their outstanding customer service. My only nagging question is whether a sealed or ported sub would be "better", but that has nothing to do with SVS of course.
