What a beast!
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.

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

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.

Couldn't be more pleased
I've had a variety of subwoofers in the past, velodynes and acoustechs most recently. The PC-2000 is vastly superior in tone, clarity and punch...and the power is jaw-dropping. With a dedicated nine speaker set-up in the media room, I've emphasized the PC-2000 over other sub because the sound and pitch is much more crisp and effective. I couldn't be happier with the purchase and am thankful to a friend's recommendation. Buy American-- I think the best subs on the globe are being made in Ohio!

Work of Art- PC2000
Right out of the box, the PC-2000 resonates with "look at me" aura. When stood up and packaging removed, before you even plug this beauty in, you just want to stand back and admire the lines, curves and humble beckoning of her. Then, plug her in, turn the dB to -10 on the receiver and you are floored by her understated reach in feeling the depth of bass notes. The simple addition turned by HT from a sound stage to a symphonic orchestra. Only problem now is that I have to soundproof the HT to make the family happy...darn the luck!

Big sub, Big sound
My sub died (Cambridge Sound Works) after 8-9 years. My room is large and has a 2 story high ceiling, so i needed a good size sub to fill that space with base. I have had it for about 2 weeks now and i am really happy with it. It's a big size speaker, so measure before you buy, but if it fits, you will be happy with the sound.

Sounds good to me!
I decided to step up from a JBL unit purchased many years ago. Room is very big, 18x28 with cathedral ceiling, and has 3/4" Oak flooring. The 7.1 surround speakers are Polk RM8's which are small for such a room but enough for me. I wanted cleaner base and to fill the room but not to overpower the satellite speakers. It has only been a few weeks and I have not pushed it hard but I truly feel the bass is much cleaner and/or crisper. I like the footprint being minimal but the height makes it stick out in the room. It does not hide in a corner by any means.
