Musical and Monstrous Rolled into One

Spine-tingling depth and chest-thumping impact at cinema playback levels can be yours with the PC12-Plus 800 Watt DSP Controlled 12" Ported Subwoofer with Variable Tuning.

Nimble yet powerful, this iconic cylinder is a heavyweight champ. Cleverly using heights to its advantage, it creates a cabinet volume that takes its power and precision above and beyond. To musical passages, it brings subtlety and nuance - breathing depth into woodwinds and richness to percussion. To movies, it drops earth-shaking sonic bombs on cue; its bountiful 2300 watts peak muscle effortlessly unleashing head-spinning sound pressure levels. All this clean, crisp, DSP-controlled bass takes up a mere 16.6" circular footprint. Elegantly finished in black velour, it will be right at home in any décor. So if you want a champion on your side, call on the PC12-Plus.

Powerful and precise! There is something so visceral about "feeling" bass that is hard to put into words. Mine is mated with a Martin Logan sealed servo sub, and the two could not sound better together. Considering the real estate most ported HT subs require, the PC-12 Plus is perfect. Take the time to dial it in properly and you will be rewarded with an experience few other subs can match at multiple times the price. SVS is also an outstanding company to deal with on any level and have provided nothing but excellent honest customer service. This is how internet direct is suppose to be.

I have been through a PB1000 a PB12 NSD and now the PC12 Plus. Each time I upgraded there was a nice increase in power from each sub. I started with this sub with all ports open and it digs deep!! I just tried sealed (all ports plugged) and it is wonderful for music. I played my favorite blu ray concert,The History of The Eagles and was blown away by how tight and accurate the bass was. For movies sealed was not the way to go. It just didn't dig very deep compared to ported.Just for reference my room is 18x12x7. Next up for me will be a twin. Don't just keep thinking about purchasing this beautiful sub.....JUST DO IT!!

" Buy Purchase Get " because if you do not, you will never understand . This sub will make you bring your systems whatever u have, whether you purchased it today or long ago. Up to par , because you will never be on the same level with its performance, no matter what amp or avr speakers or subs that you may buy . Its stands alone . I could add or write more, but when I received mine and set it up . Speechless!!!

2 Cylinders, double the fun
i initailly bought 2 PB2000's and was very pleased with them for 6 months or so, my room is rather large at 18x24. When the PC12-plus 800 watt became available i decided to upgrade for more power. which is a wonderful option SVS offers by the way, buying back the 2000's at full price within the 1st year of purchase. Imagine that ! With 2 cylinders my system now has incredble room shaking bass. Every impact or explosion is felt during movies and drums are felt during 2 channel listening as well.

Sounds great
this is my second "real" subwoofer, replacing a hsu VTF 3 mk5. The hsu was great but this is indeed a step up. Love the amp on it and being able to dial things in exactly. Still fine tuning things but so far so good. I've got a medium sized room (14x17) and it's definitely more than capable of filling the space with chest thumping bass if you want it to. Very helpful customer service as well as I was able to change the deliver address after it had shipped when I realized it was coming via freight carrier and not fed ex.

"Absolutely outstanding sound"
Being my first subwoofer (that is not in an automobile), I did a lot of research on subwoofers and settled on the specifications of the PC12 and the great support from the SVS team. They answered all my questions in the shortest time possible. Outstanding customer service!

On arrival, I noticed the size of the subwoofer. Larger than expected. Hooked up to my Yamaha RX-A2000 and Martin Loganss and powered up. The sound was remarkable. Literally house shaking sound. Rolled it out to the deck for my son's outdoor graduation party a couple of days later and my neighbor (luckily they came later for the party), 8 homes away, could hear the boom.

I highly recommend SVS to any audio enthusiast. You will be amazed at the what you will get for the price.

Incredible experience!
The only think I can say is that I need now to upgrade to the 13 ultra. The 12 plus is so good and incredible well designed that lowest frequencies just appear and I enjoy feeling them (and I thought I had a great dual ML sub setup).

Second PC12-Plus
I have had one PC12-Plus for years and needed a second one due to the huge room I use for home theater. The subwoofer does everything I wanted it to do. However, the real wow for me was working with the SVS technician over the phone to get the two subwoofers to perform well together. Not only did we accomplish this in a relatively short time, but I learned things I did not know during the process. Thought I knew a lot, but I now know a lot more. Kudos to SVS technical support.
