Great product-costumer service out of this world
Have an Onkyo THX home theater in a box. Have enjoyed it until my sub box sounded lose. Decided to upgrade to the sb 3000. My basement is 13x55 the sb3000 sounded great. After purchase I knew that there was more to be had. Thank you to SVS for helping adjust my setting via live chat and 2 hours of phone conversation. The sb3000 sounded great. For that big of room, it just wasn’t enough. Enter the pb-4000. Im am more than happy. I am even more than happy that it was all shipped for free. Shipped the sb3000 back for free with refund. Great company.

Dual PB 4000s
I recently utilized the 1 year trade up option to step up from dual PB 2000s to dual PB 4000s. SVS made the process seamless. I really enjoyed the PB 2000s however my system is located in a large open floor plan setting, and I was looking for a little more room filling bass. The PB 4000s fit that bill perfectly. The increase in headroom is noticeable right off the bat, but the real difference is the authority that the PB 4000s deliver in everything from music to movies. Both the PB 2000s and PB 4000s deliver the deep bass that makes movies come to life, but the dual PB 4000s are just much more realistic due to the punch you get from the 1200 watt amp. Explosions and gunfire in the movie Hacksaw Ridge are absolutely life like. The great thing is that these subwoofers can absolutely disappear when not needed in a particular sound track, but jump right back to life when called upon. I'm very happy I made the move to upgrade to the PB 4000s as they fill my space with deep accurate bass every time.

If you have the space (these are very large and heavy), I would highly recommend the PB 4000 or dual PB 4000s. You will not be disappointed!

Best sub ever
The best surround sub I've ever heard. The lows are like an earthquake in my house. The only way it could sound better is if I bought 2 instead of one lol. I would highly recommend anybody wanting to buy this to just buy it. Thanks for completing my home theater system.

I received it, bottom corner busted, didn't notice till after brought it up 3 floors and unpacked it and hooked it and noticed the damage. I had a jl audio fathom 12 and this pb-4000 doesn't come close to it . I am really hoping it just needs a breaking in period. Will update later with damage and sound

Thank you SVS!
I really really struggled with this decision for awhile. Rhythmik Audio is down the road and although I like they're product my theater is the living room and big subs like that are just not very easy on the eyes. I needed something powerful because it's an open space but very attractive. I've went with SVS before with speakers and subs and never been disappointed so after a lot of thinking I pulled the trigger on dual PB 4000's. Ohhhhhh BOOOOOY am I glad I did! Outstanding just outstanding. Power speed detail transients music movies this sub can do it all and do it all very very WELL. Once again SVS has completely met even exceeded my expectations. Oh and even if I could get something more powerful? Why bother? Once I let these things really rip I was like man who would even need anything more then these beautiful beasts I have right here? And did I mention beautiful? The piano gloss is simply stunning I can't stop looking at these subs! The phone app is AMAZING. Have completely gotten addicted to it! Once again the customer service is second to NONE! Thanks for all the help with the setup guys! Oh and Ed? When are you going to get around to watching Blade Runner 2049? You've gotta see that movie my friend you don't know what your missing! Lol. Thanks again SVS for making me a very happy very satisfied customer!

I've had my pb 4000 for 2 months.
It's an excellent sub apart from reliability. It's now failed and been diagnosed as a faulty amplifier.
It's not really acceptable to pay this much and have it fail in a short period of time. I hope it gets sorted asap.
I've got equipment that is 30 years old (technics) and has never failed.

This is a great sub I honestly thought it woulda had more kick to it but it definitely brought my sound system to life my other two subs would be drown out by the speakers after a certain level but this one gives a slightly overpowering bass which is what I like. I need to figure out more on the settings mostly for movies the sound quality there isn’t as good lots of humming noise but that’s prolly because I don’t know how to set it up properly or use the lpf. Music sounds great though overall 4 out of 5 stars it isn’t as chest pounding as I thought but it dose a decent job maybe the ultra 16 would have been a better choice for me.

A Worthy Successor to the PB 13 Ultra...
I owned a PB 13 Ultra for a while before ending up with a PB 2000. That subwoofer was a total beast. I've always liked SVS' products and their customer service was always good to me. While getting my dedicated theater together, I knew I wanted to go with a bigger SVS ported model. The 4000s were announced around the perfect time for me. I remembered how great the PB 13 Ultra was while I had one. I ordered my PB 4000 and it arrived in early January. The oak finish is amazing. I didn't want anything too shiny or reflective in my dark theater, so it suits my needs perfectly. It is not a small subwoofer by any means so make sure you measure before you buy one. Once I got everything set up properly, the sound this thing puts out is great. Going on 6 months of having it in my theater, I can say this thing is the real deal. I put on Edge of Tomorrow with Tom Cruise the other night and I just sat there, and I was fully immersed in the film. The sub shuts up when not needed and comes out when its needed and its perfect. The few airship/plane flying things in the movie sounded so good with the low end the PB 4000 provided. Never overstated, but just a rock solid foundation of low end bass. I remember smiling during the movie and thinking "man this thing makes this movie sound awesome!" Even with all ports open, I never heard the subwoofer make a bad sound. Even with the EOT opening scene, the PB 4000 behaved. Those bass sweep tones can kill your sub if your not careful, but at -10db on my Denon 3300, I did not hear one bad noise or sound from this thing. I'm really not worried now about this sub bottoming out or blowing up. It can handle the abuse and I love that. I wanna be focused on the movie and not that my gear is going to bottom out.

The app is also great too. I like being able to control every aspect of the sub form my seating position. For me, Id only use the app for set up and I haven't touched it since, but proper set up is a HUGE part of getting the best out of this subwoofer or any subwoofer for that matter. I got REW and a UMIK 1 but haven't messed with the PEQ yet, but I will. SVS have made a worthy successor to their beloved 13 Ultra Series. Is it the best bang for your buck performance wise? I would say no. There are other subs in the same price range worth taking a look at. Bottom line....SVS' products just work. Period. They do what they are designed to do and that's deliver realistic bass. Being sucked into a movie is why I love this hobby, and this PB 4000 makes it so easy to suspend disbelief that the Hulk is running around my room and puts me in the action. That is my goal with this hobby, and the PB 4000 is a great piece of gear that easily enables me to get lost in whatever movie I'm watching. I highly recommend this subwoofer. I'm going to add a 2nd to my system in the future
