The SVS smartphone app for Android and iOS devices gives you even more control over your listening experience. Download this free app and take control of all of your ported subwoofers DSP functions including: volume, parametric EQ, low pass filter, phase, polarity, room gain, port-tuning, custom presets, and system settings.

Great every step of the way!
From the moment I started my research to calls to customer service with questions and advice to my ultimate purchase of a PB-4000, my experience has been awesome. I was convinced to step up to the 4000 from my orig. choice of the 2000 and I didn't feel sold at all just advised. Glad I did. I wanted the gloss finish but my budget was already stretched thin. The dark wood finish looks great and I am not disappointed. Right away I was impressed with how well made this beast is and the sound to match. The only thing that kind of shocked me was the size. I could not believe how big it is! The dimensions listed just don't translate into the actual sub when it arrives!

Revelatory.
I’ve been buying high end stereo and home theater gear for longer than I care to admit. I’m struggling to remember a product that has more impressed me. I know that deep earth shattering bass is important to many. I’d like to argue that even more important is the way this unit seamlessly integrates and improves the entire watching experience throughout the whole movie. Once we are done with COVID, I’d be happy to host people for real world demos.

Extremely Happy with my Dual PB-4000s
Thanks mostly to Scott for putting up with me. Initially I did the upgrade from my Dual SB-3000s to the SB-4000s but cancelled that order and ordered the SB-16s. I listened to them for a week but having got used to my Dual PB-3000s I realized I needed the Dual PB-4000s. I sent the SB16s back, which by the way are superior and sound excellent, especially for music listeners with a penchant for tight bass. I moved the dual PB-3000s from my basement to my family room and waited for my Dual PB-4000s to arrive. They came in today. Listened to some jazz after listening to some hard hitting rap and jazz fusion. Nothing is better than listening to Ready Player One. My basement is shaking and I am smitten. To sum this up, I spoke to Gary and Ed and they both were helpful and cared about the choice I made. From Scott, to Ed and Gary, this is a great outfit (as we said in the Army) and I am indebted to them for working with me and they have a customer for life. Damn these subs hit hard!

I'm still getting to know
I'm still getting to know my PB-4000. I'm trying to adjust it to maximize performance in my room and with the rest of my system. I think it's going to be great. The only disappointment I have is that the box said it's made in China. I understand why. It would probably cost twice as much if it was made in the USA. Thanks

PB-4000 Piano Gloss
I bought this subwoofer with very high expectations, and with much hesitation because of the price. My existing subwoofer was not cutting it, but I had hopes that this sub would elevate the movie and music experience. To say my expectations were surpassed would be an insult to this incredible piece of art - I was floored by the build quality and performance. It is huge, gorgeous, and most importantly, the sound is perfection. If my theater were bigger I would add either a second PB-4000 or go with the PB-16 Ultra - but I would worry about shaking my house apart!

SVS PB-16 Ultra is best
I'm really impressed on how my SVS PB-16 Ultra and PB-4000 Shake the whole house it kind of scares me a little but I like it. So I'm getting ready on sending back my PB-4000 for another PB-16 Ultra to get equal power output from right and left channels. I recommend the SVS ultra PB-16 you can't go wrong. You can feel the difference.
