Product Information

Impressively Deep, Clean SVS Bass in an Inconspicuous 13" Cabinet

Like a stick of dynamite, the SB-1000 300 Watt DSP Controlled 12" Ultra Compact Sealed Subwoofer is easy to conceal, but its impact is hard to ignore. It's the most SVS bass that can be condensed into a 13" package. When it's time to party, your music comes to life, bass lines are tight, and drums are never muddy.

Elegantly finished in premium black ash, gloss piano black, or gloss piano white, it fits with any décor. And yet, it's small enough to tuck in a corner if you need to keep it out of the way. To maximize the slam and impact of your home theater (with a minimal footprint), two SB-1000s can be paired, one on either side of the room.

For big movie and music enjoyment in a small package, go with the SB-1000.

Sledge Amplifier STA-300D

The Sledge STA-300D amplifier packs technology and sophistication not found anywhere else at this price point.

This amp features a highly advanced DSP processor offering unmatched control over the subwoofer at all drive levels, for the ultimate in refined behavior. The control knobs are actually digital actuators for precise and noise-free adjustment.

SVS 12" High Output Driver

With SVS, compact and affordable doesn't mean compromising on performance. The 12" driver in the SB-1000 pumps out loads of deep and powerful bass with low distortion, for smooth and accurate performance on music and movies.

  • FEA-optimized motor for low distortion
  • Long-throw suspension for high output at deep frequencies
  • High-power voice coil for excellent thermal management
  • Lightweight 12" cone for enhanced sensitivity and transient response
  • Rubber surround for durability and long life

Marvelous subs!
Excellent sound for the price. And it works with my speaker inputs from my old amp just fine. Lots of lows for music and movies.

Tight punchy bass and plenty of power in a relatively compact size, with great fit and finish

Wilmot SB1000
I have to say for the money this is hands down the best sub. I had a velodyne which crapped out, the SB1000 is my replacement and it has a much sharper punchy bass response than the velodyne had.

Deep base
Love the deep thumping base. It took some time to get it right with the AV receiver but once set up you don’t need a sound shaker in your home theater seats!

Great sub with a small footprint!
I'll preface my thoughts with this explaining that this is for a secondary home theater set up in our bedroom so a sub with a small footprint was what I was looking for. The SB-1000 fit the bill. The rest of the speakers in this system are SVS Ultra Center Channel & Bookshelves. I replaced the factory power cord with one from Audioquest.

For music the DTS Sampler Disc #4 with 5.1 audio is a good demo disc. This disc has the live performances of the Eagles playing Hotel California & Roy Orbison from "Black & White Nights. The mid and low bass was punchy, tuneful, and well defined versus just hearing/feeling "boom". In the Hotel California video you can easily hear the different timbre as the drummer quickly switches from congas to timbales. In Black & White Nights the SB-1000 puts out a lot of mid and low bass energy and bass notes can easily be followed making this a good sub for both music and movies.

This sampler disc also has the last battle scene from Saving Private Ryan. The sound of the German Tiger tank shook and rumbled the house. The sound of the bazooka fire and explosions from the tank firing generated a lot of satisfying LFE.

Check out The Bourne Identity drone strike in Chapter 5, likewise shakes the room.

The four stock rubber feet on the bottom do a good job decoupling the sub from the floor. I was going to hook up a 12-volt trigger cable but the auto shut off feature works after no signal is received so I decided not to run another cable in the room.

I haven't used this sub enough yet to write a meaningful review, but the company is first-rate as far as communication, responsiveness, and shipping.

Duel Subs Are The Way To Go
One sub was great. Stereo subs are amazing. I think that is the way to go for two channel systems for sure. I am impressed at how satisfying the bass is at low listening levels, and when I crank it up it is awesome. I love my SVS subs. Would buy again.

Easy to setup and sounds amazing. The kids asked why I hadn't bought this sooner.

Perfect Combination of Price, Size, Sound, & Power
I've had this for a little over a week and it has exceeded any expectations. While I've owned a surround system off and on for a long time, I haven't owned a Subwoofer for nearly 2 decades since college where I had a subwoofer as part of a home theater in a box kit. I was always hesitant to get a subwoofer because of the "boomy" nature of what I thought bass from a home subwoofer was supposed to sound like. But after all the reviews, and considering room logistics, budget and having small kids, this sub seemed like the ideal compromise of price, size, and power. It's paired with a Polk Audio Signature Series S30 Center Channel and 4 S15s as front and surround speakers. I have hard wood floors so I also got the isolation kit. I've only had a few opportunities to really test out different movie scenes and music, but this subwoofer is nothing less than astonishing. The "boomyness" I'd long associated with a subwoofer has been replaced by crisp, clear, and really beautiful sounding bass. Watching the T-REX scene in Jurassic Park transported me back to the first time I watched it. Additionally, it not only sounds amazing, but it also makes my other speakers sound so much better too. I didn't try the subwoofer without the isolation kit, but with the isolation kit, it's astonishing to get such powerful bass and not get any of the associated rattles. I haven't taken advantage of customer service support, but look forward to doing so to make sure I've set up everything as best as possible.
