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.

Fine sub + great customer service
My SB-1000 arrived 2 days ago and I just put in my system. This modestly proportioned box works perfectly--exactly as described. I have it connected to my powered speakers via the RCA line-in/line-out, utilizing the high-pass crossover. Soon I'll put in an external crossover, but it sounds very good as is, deep & tight. I'm really impressed with this no-nonsense, affordable sub. And I'm amazed by SVS' customer service! From the moment I placed the order, their communication & follow-up have been outstanding.

The ultimate set-up ...
I have two 1000's set-up in a 7.2 configuration partnered with High End speakers. I initially started with one, but found that two really evened the sound experience across all spectrums of both movies and music. The warmth and depth they have brought to both genres has my friends making excuses for staying longer during viewings.

Could not have asked for better
I live in an apartment. I already had an integrated amplifier and bookshelf speakers. I already had speaker wire. I just needed a subwoofer. But not just any subwoofer. Because I live in an apartment, it had to be on the smaller side, and sealed. Because I already had the wire the subwoofer needed binding posts because I needed to be able to use banana clips. Because I already had an integrated amplifier (NOT a stereo option for LFE) I also needed a low pass crossover on the subwoofer itself to keep high frequency signal off the sub. I also needed a quality brand I knew I could trust. The SB1000 was and remains everything I needed.

And it sounds amazing, providing deep, rich, omnidirectional bass both for musical purposes and home theater. And despite being basically the smallest sub SVS sells, it fills my apartment very, very easily. The ordering process was simple, I received good information throughout.

I genuinely could not have asked for a better product or a better experience. You guys have a stellar reputation, and it is well-deserved. I would recommend you without qualification to everyone.

I'd never heard a sealed woofer before listening to this wonderful subwoofer. My only other experience with a sub was the BIC F12 in the living room. Although the output is nowhere near as loud as the F12, the clarity and amazing precision of the SB-1000 is amazing.

I pair the SB-1000 with Cambridge Audio S30's through a Denon 1713. The beautiful sound of the S30's was too loud for the sub until I played with the bass settings in the receiver. The crossover is still a bit of a mystery while I get used to the setup, but I increased the db on the sub to match what I think I should be hearing during songs. It is a 10 out of 10 and I'd buy it again and again!

I was looking for a sub to mainly complement my audio stereo system: Marantz receiver, Project turntable and a couple of Paradigm Mini Monitor bookshelf speakers. SB-1000 turned out to be perfect! After playing with the receiver settings and the sub's placement around the room, I am happy to say, there is now a perfect harmony within all the components. The lows are accurate, undistored, and cannot be localized despite the fact that the sub is only a couple of feet away from the main listening position (it is placed next to the couch, at the opposite room end from the bookshelfs.)

PS. There are many specialists who recommend switching all speakers to "small" (80+ hz crossover) after adding a sub. FWIW, when listening to LPs, I found that listing Paradigm Mini Monitors as "large" at 60 hz (or even 40 hz) produced the most defined sound.

Sound quality is great. I am using it with Marantz NR1605 and some Klipsch reference II speakers (RF-82 for L/R). The SB-1000 integrates smoothly into the system and does not come across as boomy.

Grill should completely cover the blue light on the front. Not a big problem, as it can be covered up easily with some tape.

Completely taken aback by the sound. It is not just sound it is a physical sensation. I just took it out of the box and plugged it in to the system without any calibration. I may get a second one to see if they make me fall over backwards. Hugely impressed. Well done SVS.

Excellent subwoofer
I have been using dual Yamaha YST SW216 sub for years w/ Klipsch RF 82F II powered by EMOTIVA XP 100 by Yamaha RXV2400 . Replacing 2 subs with the SVS SB1000 makes a lot of difference . I can hear sounds that I havent heared before from all my music. I would highly recommend this sub to all music lovers out there . Thanks SVS

Love the size and sound but the blue LED light in the front can be distracting
