Dual PC-2000's
I am fairly new to the home theatre game , about a year , and in that year I have went thru quite a bit of equipment. None more so than subwoofers! From a $70 Klipsch Sub10 on craigslist that gave me the first itches of BASS , to know owning 2 PC-2000's that leave me looking for an excuse to fire them up and give people a go. They have scared kids this past halloween that came to the door for candy and sent them running! I had creepy music playing LOUD and just LED lights flashing inside the house , the bass always seemed to hit at the right moment. They have given me reasons to watch movies I normally wouldn't watch , never been much of a Marvel , Batman , Spiderman type movies , but now I watch them just to hear to hear the soundtracks. And last but not least , gaming. Playing Battefield1 with these PC's is something to experience! I haven't had to deal with SVS service a whole lot , but during the time I did , it was to return a SB2000 and they were very helpful. The last thing I need is more output , I run these at about 70% and it is plenty , but I think most of us get bass-greedy so who knows what my next SVS might be !

First real sub
I have had many speaker systems but, honestly, they have all been cheap to mid htib type systems. A couple of years ago I began buying some good quality speakers for home theatre and music. Then I needed a good sub. Unlike many of the people leaving reviews here, I'm no pro. I did alot of reading on the web and due to the positive reviews of SVS I bought the PC2000. All I can say is, "WOW!" If you have only ever heard those cheap subs from a boxed set, this aint it. I was so impressed by the power in this sub. My living room is fairly large, around 23' x 18'. This sub blends into the background on music adding great low end that is very difficult to localize and then pounds the hell out of you on action movies. The whole experience from customer service to quality of product truly blew away my expectations. SVS has another fan for life!

When the PC-2000 first arrived I was taken back by how large it really was once I completed unboxing. I am a big guy and it took some getting used to but man does it go low. I've watched Tron, Transformers, The Dark Knight & ... Rises, and The Last Samurai with it a 12 O'clock and don't see any need to turn it past that because I felt the movies for the first time. I am still working on fine tuning it to my setup and getting the speaker crossover settings just right but that takes time and I know my parameters thanks to SVS Customer Service.

Got a chance to listen to some jazz and a couple classical pieces and I felt like I was drowning in the music.

I bought the PC-2000 mainly because of the small footprint compared to other SVS subs and I am glad I choose this specific model because it was easy to place in the corner. I look forward to many years of heart thumping bass in the movies and music.

Thank you SVS customer service for your help, it was great to be able to have questions answered in a matter of hours rather than days like some other companies!

Best sub hands down
I own a PB-12plus and love it, when I finished the basement I got a PC-2000 since they are so good. Both subs are unreal and the best I have ever heard hands down.

My 1st PC 2000 ??
After a year plus of constant deliberations, I could not have brought myself to spending an exorbitant price for any speaker. Eventually, got the balls to order the bloody thing...
I must admit that you guys at SVS are some of the coolest and most customer oriented people that I have ever interfaced with in Retail. My sub was delivered last week on Wed 1st March, and I am extremely thrilled and super impressed by its performance. It is ridiculously superb for music OMG I am still blown away by how tight and responsive the bass....On the other hand, with movies it transforms into a phenomenal monster....Most impressively is the Sound Path Isolation Path - This system really works !!!!
Overall I am tremendously happy and enjoying my PC 2000... It is really a nice piece of decor as described by my friends...who are also sold...One has already placed at order...

Thanks So Much

Game changer!
we bought a PC2000 to be paired with RBH speakers and powered by Marantz amplifiers. Sound quality in my home theater is exactly what we were looking for.

Use is 95% movies. May consider adding another to be a 7.2 system. However this certainly is not needed. As of now this system will shake the monitors in my home office that is two floors above the theater.

You won't find a better value imo. I've had sunfire, Definative Tech, Klischp and paradigm. It pumps as good or better as any of them at 30-50% less cost.
Don't be scared. This is an outstanding sub

I love the sound and the boom that comes out off speaker. Well made looks great. Will buy another soon. Also the wireless connections was the best thing I bought. No lag time either

Unbelievable subs with unprecedented support!!
I chose dual PC-2000's due to placement and the small footprint as the height was a non factor. I was not disappointed!! One of these beasts would have been enough but as they say too much is never enough so I went dual and have been in awe ever since.

They take up less space than the PB counterpart and are lighter so much easier to move for proper placement. Being the driver is down firing I also feel the driver is even better protected from my 2 year old son. Last cherry on top was the inclusion of the isolation feet.

The support I have received after purchase has been astounding considering I haven't had any issues what so ever. I'm referring. To support for placement and tuning and just overall concern to make sure I was happy with my purchase and I couldn't be happier.

These subs shake the walls and kick you in the chest and I haven't second guessed my purchase once since hearing them. SVS has won a customer in me for life honestly. In my opinion you just can't beat the combo of performance and support!!

Big punch, small(ish) package
Though it is the most expensive single piece of audio equipment I purchased, the investment is well worth it. There's a special something when you don't just hear the bass, but feel it as well. That, and the small, round footprint of the cylinder fits my smaller listening area extremely well.

Simply amazing
I did a lot of research before buying a sub. I also read many reviews of many different subs. I am very happy i decided on a SVS PC2000 sub. It is amazing. My advice to everybody reading this review is to stop searching and just buy it. If you can't afford it, wait and save up for it. You will not be disappointed. SVS's products are amazing and the customer service is even better. there isn't a better company to do business with.
