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.

A Monster Sub-Beyond Expectations!
More than 10 years ago, I purchased an SVS PB-13 Ultra, which replaced a much smaller DefTech sub I had previously. Although I have a very large room, (24' x 24' with a slightly vaulted ceiling = 4800 cubic feet) from what I had read, the Ultra would be up to the task, and it was. It performed perfectly until about a year ago, when the amp died. I replaced it with the newer Sledge amp, and it came back to life again, better than ever. But I knew that a 2nd sub would make a huge improvement in my large room. I wanted a more even response around the room, and to eliminate any localization I still occasionally noticed with the single, corner-situated sub.
So, a few days ago I received my new piano black PB-4000. I am running it along with the old PB-13 Ultra; the two subs sit diagonally in the front right and left rear corners, which, coincidentally are the only two spots I can position these two large units. (My MLP sofa is right in the center of the room.)
Both subs are connected to the two sub pre-outs on my Marantz SR-7012 AVR. The new 4000 has a wired connection, and the old Ultra is connected wirelessly with the SVS sound path wireless kit. I know this isn't ideal, due to the delay on the wireless side, but my AVR's Audyssey XT-32 is able to calibrate two subs, adjusting for the delay by increasing the 'distance' to the wireless sub. I thought I would need to do more fine tuning, but everything is dialed in now and sounds amazing.
I used the small remote and the phone app just for setup, and haven't needed to use them since, but it is nice to have these, rather than reaching behind the sub to make volume adjustments, etc., as I have to do with the Ultra. As far as the wireless hookup goes, it has been flawless--no glitches whatsoever.
I should also mention that I'm using the Soundpath isolation feet on both subs; I have a carpeted floor, over a concrete slab, and the feet have helped with room vibration quite a bit.
Eventually I would like to replace the Ultra with another PB-4000, but for now, they are a close match. I have both of them running in extended mode, with one port plugged.
When a movie soundtrack, or music call for it, the deep, smooth low end this pair of subs can put out is the best I've heard from my system, ever. And when a film soundtrack is designed to make you jump out of your seat, you will.
I'm enjoying re-watching a lot of movies, and listening to my music collection all over again, as well. If you're on the fence about getting a 4000, and you have the space for one (or two), I'd say go for it. I'm betting the customer satisfaction percentage on these units is extremely high.

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.

Pb-4000
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
