Powerful DSP amp

The SVS PB-4000 is a self-powered subwoofer that features a 1,200 watt Class D DSP amplifier that controls power flow and ensures crystal clear output no matter what you are listening to and no matter how loud or quiet the volume. It also creates three port tuning modes with their very own response curves -- imagine three subwoofers housed in one cabinet.

iOS and Android compatible

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. The app allows you to save favorite settings and presets and displays updates in real time. Whether you want to dial back the bass during a romantic dinner or you want to shake the paintings off the walls with your favorite dance tracks, SVS makes it easy for you to hear every musical detail with dynamic clarity.

Quality Components

This subwoofer pushes the limits of sonic possibility. The SVS PB-4000 features a massive 13.5 inch high-excursion driver, a dual ferrite magnet motor assembly, edge wound voice coils, and an advanced high resolution audio digital signal processor (DSP). All of it is house inside a cabinet featuring a thick MDF front baffle and rigid internal bracing. Technical talk aside, all of these components work together to deliver powerful, clear bass, free of distortion.

Unbelievable! The PB4000 is a Monster
Purchased this sub a month or so ago at a Magnolia store. Got home a hooked it up! It is amazing what I never heard in movies before. Came from a Klipsch 10sw what a difference. At first I was like this bass sounds different, its lower, where is all the exaggerated mid bass? This is a big key! Give your ears time to adjust from over done, distorted and exaggerated mid bass from your current sub. You have 45 days to try it out. It will take a day or two for you to start hearing the difference. Give the sub a little time to loosen up as well. This sub has a stiff suspension. Anyway,
This PB4000 vanished into my system. I used to be able to close my eyes and point to where my sub was. That is not the case anymore. You will be blown away at how much sound you haven't heard before in you music and movies. Absolutely incredible. I've researched the PB4000 since it came out in 2018. Finally decided to pull the trigger. Man am I glad I did. There customer service is top notch as well. I have called them twice with question since owning it on setup. They are always kind and they don't rush you off the phone. Ill tell you what... I'm pretty sure that SVS just earned a customer for life. I've always been a Klipsch guy... That might be changing, Might be time to start replacing my 5.2.2(except the pb4000) all Klipsch dedicated home theater room setup over to SVS.

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.
