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.

Very large, the pictures on
Very large, the pictures on the website don't do it justice! Awesome sound. Does my movies right. Makes the wife mad mad mad. Also bought the Prime Center and Prime elevations, four, but two on backorder. All being pushed by a new Denon 6700 H. I'm very happy with the sound and even loving the music again. This subwoofer is replacing a Veledyne 18 HGS 2. For some reason the veledyne amp kept going out after a few years. I'm hoping the SVS Amp holds up better. Am getting ready to retire in six years so decided to buy everything now while I can afford it.

It shakes the foundation of my house. My wife gives me a look when it hits hard. I simply turn my head to her, apologize and turn it down with my cell phone.

It’s absolutely incredible.

I think people get caught up on "output" to much, let me tell ya a sub can have all the output in the world and still sound thin and non room filling. This one pb4000 right out of the box fills my mid/large room with pleasant deep tones that i new existed but never experienced with even larger/multiple drivers. I was hesitant to get just one 13 inch sub thinking there is no way this will fill my room ,,,, boy was i wrong,, just listening to the sub during calibration on my avr I new this was a different kind of beast. quality of tone is what I was after and the pb4000 has delivered the goods!

Lower the Volume!!
First thing I’d like to say is I’m a lover of quality sound and I’m also a DJ and a musician (bass player.) I understand the different modes and types of bass sounds be it from movies or music. Whether we’re talking about hz or octaves. Bass synths or bass drum kicks. All different. In regards to that, Its important the subwoofer can dig deep and be also be gentle on the top side.

The SVS 4000 handles all spectrums of bass quite well. Very impressive. The weight and size of this cabinet is monstrous. It was a lot heavier than “reading” the weight implied. That’s on me but it is massive. I should've had with a dolly tray with wheels ready.

The only issue I had was initially setting it up. After all the reading and all the you tube videos, I used Audacity to reset my 9.1 Atmos system. Then I called SVS to help with the 4000 settings. Eq, volumes, phase, etc. I was hoping the person who assisted me had patience as this speaker setup was new to me. He told me to adjust the phase on it in increments of 15 and said that all I needed to do was raise and lower the volume of the subwoofer as different movies and songs came on. No mention of how to really tune it. So, on my own, I played with all aspects of the remote and the different modes on the phone app such as saving 3 different settings, figuring out the differences in movie or music mode... the crossover settings....
It probably can get better but it sounds good. And I lower and raise the volume as needed.

Still waiting for burn in on sub and Morrow Audio cable. Couldn't be happier though. Clean sound. Can slam, yet be subtle. I listen to music the majority of time, so having a ported box that can be converted to sealed, port plugs and dps setting, was a big plus. One thing that could be improved upon is how to utilize the slopes and gains on the parametric equalizers. Se alot of confused people posting about low output.

Incredible and Impressed!
I was running dual SVS 20-39CS subs that I purchased in 2001. I loved these subs, but a couple of years ago I moved my theater to a larger room and purchased Golden Ear Triton 5s, the XXL center, Aeo 2s, and mounted Invisa 7000HTRs in the ceiling. (loving Atmos!) Since moving to the new room and with the new speakers, I felt the dual 20-39s were lagging the rest of the setup.
After considering the SB-4000, the PB-4000 and both Ultras, I decided on the PB-4000. I expected an improvement, but the performance has far exceeded my expectations. Where my dual 20-39s ran out of room, the PB-4000 has so much more to give, and the quality of the bass is better too. It's tighter and more impactful. So I expected "more" from this PB-4000 and it still surprised me with how much "more" I got!

The grill had two small blemishes on it, and SVS quickly sent me a replacement grill. The customer service was awesome 19 years ago and it hasn't changed to this day. I'm happy to be an SVS customer, and we can all be satisfied to patronize a company that actually cares about their customer satisfaction while also offering a top-of-the-line subwoofer experience!
