I already have some very good floor standing speakers that produce good bass and a middling subwoofer that helped to fill in some of the harder spots. Switching that middling sub to the SB-2000 made an unexpectedly large difference. I had not anticipated that so much was being missed until I had a sub capable of producing some of those deeper, more subtle lows. So happy to have it in the system.
I'm no audiophile, but I can appreciate quality sound. I've never owned a subwoofer other than those that come with "boxed" systems. I researched subwoofers to death and I kept coming back to SVS, which also happens to be my initials :) I prefer a warm sound, so I'm running these through a Marantz SR5012 paired with Wharfedale Diamond 11.2 bookshelf speakers. I use all of this for both home theater and for listening to music. My family room opens to the kitchen. It's about 3000 cubic feet total. This sub does all I need and more. I could not believe how tight and quick the bass is for music, and it completely changed our movie and TV watching experience. I've heard people say not to bother upgrading your TV, that you'll get a bigger impact by upgrading your sound. I am now firmly in that camp. I will not give up my plasma TV, and adding this sub did more for our enjoyment factor than any new TV could have done. I went right for the Jurassic Park "T-Rex test" with this sub, and holy cow. I kept going back and forth listening to it with and without the sub engaged, and could not believe what I was hearing - and feeling. Even my wife was blown away, and she usually couldn't care less about this sort of thing. It's always great when a product lives up to the hype. Even better when it exceeds that hype. I absolutely love not having buyer's remorse, and this is a quality-of-life improvement that I simply did not expect. Great job SVS!
Blended great with my stereo setup. Sounds very natural and smooth and puts the emotion back into listening to music. I'm rediscovering my whole music collection and amazed at how much better everything sounds. Why did I ever wait so long?
This subwoofer can really reproduce frequency range from 35Hz blow. Not many subwoofer can do that. It can give you totally different experience about music and movie. However, there is a little problem. When you paired it with some sensitive loudspeaker, which you only listen at very low signal level, it is hard for a amp to trigger the sub from auto sleep mode. If your receiver has an dedicated sub level adjustment, which I don't, you can bump the sub output level to make it work seamlessly. Other than that, it is a great subwoofer.
I’d originally grabbed an sb2000 pro, just weeks before Black Friday. Dumb. When the 2000 (non-pro) came up on sale for BF, I hemmed and hawed and eventually grabbed one, knowing it would lack some of the quality of life improvements from the pro. Fortunately, it was not a meaningful loss in the sound quality dept, at least for my setup (medium-high volume music, medium-low volume home theater). Just like the pro, the sb2000 sounds phenomenal. It adds a stunning amount of depth to everything I listen to. Never boomy, always blends seamlessly. I could honestly not be happier with it. I do miss adjusting volume from the app and I’m sure the newer amp and driver in the pro are better at high volumes, but for me the 2000 is perfect.
SVS was flawless in the customer service dept as well. Returning the pro was crazy easy, and all my questions were answered in seconds - even on Black Friday.
This is a huge upgrade to my home theater. I thought I knew what bass was before, I was wrong. The SB-2000 reveals sounds I didn't even know we're there. Small footprint Big sound. So much power. It will shake everything in your house, if you want it to . Highly recommended for anyone. I can't say enough positive things about this unit.
The SVS SB 2000 pro is a superb subwoofer to extend the lower range of your main speakers.It took me a couple of days to fine tune them to perfectly blend with my Maggies .7 panels.I do everything by ear as I do my cartridges.They blend in with my Maggies beautifuly and they also open up the soundstage the increased the depth of the recording venue and add transparency to the main speakers.My system sounds so musical and there are no dips or holes in the frequency range.But you have to get it right with the crossover filter the volume control and the phase control knob.I love SVS and I plan to add a second subwoofer in the near future.
Bought this to complement my Soundbase and Polk 700ls in ceiling for bedroom listening. I thought the sb2000 was perfectly suited for an extra large bedroom. I found that it was way more than capable and when hardly pushed, the base can be heard and felt throughout the home. SVS exceeds expectations every time.
Love for SVS dual sub that comes with rock solid Bass
I Love ?? SVS subwoofer. Beautiful looking and stunning clean and clear bass. This is second one to go with my other which has been doing is job meticulously. I am hoping enjoy this pair for a long period of time. Thank you SVS for a reasonable pricing on your products.
it was everything i expected it to be and more and SVS customer support was top notch. i defiantly would recommend SVS to anyone looking for an excellent sub. i'm already planning for my next purchase.
I have always preferred the tight, clean bass of a sealed-box subwoofer. That can be difficult to find these days and I really didn't want to get a ported box and have to plug the ports. So this fit the bill. The SB-2000 meshes so well with my home theater, and I'm able to enjoy those deep low frequencies once again. Very happy with the sub and quality in crafstmanship and sound.
I really wanted one of these after my other brand had been repaired several times and finally died so there was no hesitation when they went on sale and I am so happy I did. Small footprint, big on crystal clear sound and best of all customer service is great when nowadays is nonexistent but there is only one problem now, I need to save more money to go duel :)
This is a fantastic subwoofer for the money. My only complaint is that they did not add a speaker level to line level converter on it. I traded my SB1000 for the SB2000's and was disappointed that I could not hook it directly up to my speaker wires. This caused me a lot of rewiring of my system.
I had already owned a SB 2000. I decided to go dual subs. Wow! What an incredible difference. I was pleasantly surprised when the offer came about several weeks ago. The walls are shaking! Thanks for an fantastic product and buy.
I was thinking I was missing out not having WiFi connectivity like the SB2000 Pro, but I seem to have gotten things tuned in and my wife pointed out it’s easier to get up and adjust the volume than get up and find my iPad. So I’m giving it a 5-star rating simply because it does what I need and sounds good. I really can’t ask for more than that.
Great little bassy box. Still listening for the first 100 hours, but so far so good. Blends with the speakers so well that I like to kneel in front of it to prove to myself it's working. Then when it's switched to edm or hiphop, it becomes obvious. Outstanding customer service with agents even willing to play along if you want to talk through your own personal audio problems, of which I have many. Very satisfied - just need to return a few cables and get different lengths. I'm just in a temporary setup now: ELAC Unifi UB52, Schiit Saga, Rotel rb-850. Vidar on the way.
I haven't read the other reviews, but I assume it will be repetitive. This sub is very powerful and capable for its size and it's price. I purchased it to compliment my desktop bookshelves. What I didn't know was this is way too much sub for them. Considering adding it to my ht and buy something smaller and weaker for my bookshelves.
I had been eying SVS subs for years, but kept telling myself, it’s just a sub...how different can these be??? Well, I finally took the plunge and I’m kicking myself...why didn’t I do it sooner!? I now Understand what’s a conservatively rated, high power subwoofer can do to deliver great well integrated sound into my setup at any level. The best is honestly at lower volumes where my old sub just didn’t seem to do much. Now I have fast transient response, several octaves of low end I was missing, and more. It’s a huge upgrade to my system, which includes Paradigm Signature stereo speakers, and Emotiva preamp and power amp. I have a feeling this won’t be my last SVS purchase.
The SB 2000 is my second SVS Sub purchase over the past several years. The first was a 375 watt Powered Cylinder and I love it placed in our downstairs home theater. The SB 2000 physical size is diminutive in comparison. In performance, it fills our 360 sq ft living room very well with accurate bass whether listening to Joni Mitchell or Joe Walsh, or Rush. I am using the SB 2000 exclusively for music and chose the sealed cabinet for this reason along with it's unobtrusive size. Construction of the unit is what I expected from SVS. It was put together with obvious quality craftsmanship in mind. Fit and finish are comparable to a better furniture grade. The cabinet covering is adequate in quality and the overall appearance is very good due to the care in craftsmanship. The front grill is an attractive formed perforated powder-coated steel assembly that is easily removed or installed. I have had the SB 2000 for about two weeks now and it is broke in and is an extremely sweet addition to the OHM Sound Cylinder mains, filling out the lower end where the OHM speakers weren't designed to go. I am very pleased with the SB 2000 overall, in appearance, quality and especially in performance. Thank you for another great Mid-West US quality manufactured product.
Picked up the sub-2000 during Black Friday. I wasn’t even considering a sub but saw the deal and heard great things about Svs subs so I purchased one. It really makes a difference with my magna pan speakers which I use mainly for music. Now I’m thinking dual subs but matching subs may be a problem down the road with sb-2000 discontinued. May return it and upgrade to sb-2000 pro or sb-3000. Either way it definitely has had a positive effect my listening!
Dont let the compact size fool you. I've been researching a new sub to fold into my system for a while. SVS always finished first. I took advantage of the Black Friday sale and three days later I'm smiling ear to ear. After some custom adjustments to the sound field on my Pioneer AV receiver, I knew I made the right choice. Incredible improvement across the board with Polk reference floor standing mains and KEF rears, and Polk effects and center. Be patient and take the time to fine tune. I use my system for music more than movies so the SB2000 was perfect. Excellent packaging and looks fantastic in place. I will consider a step up in the not too distant future. Great customer service and follow up. Thanks SVS
This is my second SB-2000. The first time I hooked up my 2000 to a set of KEF LS 50W speakers and cranked it up I thought my house was going to disintegrate. That’s a good thing! The power and precision were amazing, alarming (again, in a good way) and oh so satisfying for a Classic Rock listener from the 60s. This sub can kick low frequency ass! Highly recommended.
I bummed. Out of the box unit does seem to automatically turn on when I apply signal. (Yep, checked and rechecked my settings). So, am going to give it 4 stars. I have another SVS Sub on my "main stereo which I love. I purchased the SB-2000 for my rec room stereo. Audio quality is great. But, may need to return my new 2000?
Its absolutely amazing. I had read reviews on SVS subwoofers but never heard one in person. I decided to get the SB 2000 on a black Friday deal based on blind faith and was not disappointed! After a few days of listening I can confirm that its everything I wanted. I wanted deep bass but also very detailed (sealed) sound. I listen to a lot of music and wanted a tight response for rock and jazz. This does that as well as any that I have heard. Amazingly it also does the job with movies. It goes deep and loud. I tested a few tried and true films (Master and Commander, Jurassic Park, Avengers Infinity War, Star Wars, Saving Private Ryan, etc). It is almost impossible to find a sub that can handle those movies well and remain dignified when playing music at this price point but the SVS was stunning. If you like movies and music I recommend this sub for everyone. If you just like movies than the ported version should offer a little more punch. For me this was perfect. System noted below for reference.

If you folks need your sub in less than a week get it from Crutchfield or local dealers. Three days delivery across the US is a bit better than 6-8 days direct for the same price. Confirmed on November 23rd and won't arrive until Dec 1st ???? I worked for FedEx and can say anything over 4 days is late ..... much less 8 days. With weather and Covid happening I would suggest get it quicker this time of year.
Just bought the unit and cant wait to hear it. I had issue with the payment I made and the customer service of SVS was outstanding. Want to acknowledge Corey who said he would look in to the matter and call be back right away and he did just that. Good to experience this type of service and it feels like I made a right choice with going with SVS.
I have enjoyed my Magnepan, .7’s for about a month, but they needed a little more low frequency energy. I hoped that by adding a subwoofer it would make a positive difference. The SB-2000, is just what the Dr. ordered. Clean, Deep, Articulate LOWS, that put a smile on your face, with out the overdriven, muddy, boomy, mid bass that some modest priced Subwoofers strain to reproduce. This Subwoofer delivers all the lows I could ever want, while, opening up the soundstage of my Magnepans. I enjoyed the Magnepans before, but now they give me goosebumps. The deep, pleasant, Lows from this Subwoofer, are nothing short of awesome. If you are looking for a way to open up the soundstage of your main speakers, and want a balanced, level of bass in a 16’x20’ living room, @ a price that won’t break the bank then IMHO, look no further. I could not be happier with this Subwoofer. I have read nothing but great reviews on all of the SVS products, & I have heard a personal testimonial from a friend, for their customer service that helped me realize that I wanted a Subwoofer from this company.
I had been looking for a subwoofer for awhile to add to my PC 2 channel speakers. I had started off with the Klipsch Promedia 2.1 PC speaker system about 20 years ago. I really like them because they could get loud and had decent bass at lower volumes, at higher volumes the satellites left the sub in the dust. I decided that I wanted to upgrade, so I sold the Promedia set and got Klipsch R-41PM bookshelf speakers. I got the powered ones because I don't have an amp yet. I like them a lot, but due to the 4" driver they were lacking in lower frequency output. After a lot of research, I settled on an SVS sub. I took advantage of the scratch and dent sale to get a SB-2000. Wow! This sub added what was missing from the bookshelf speakers! Not only that, the Klipsch speakers can get reasonably loud, and the sub can easily keep up with them. Movies such as Transformers, where low frequencies are utilized in the soundtrack can be heard and felt. There are a lot of subs out there, but I feel that this SVS sub does a great job for the price. The piano black finish looks fabulous! I also opted for the SVS sub component cable and the sound isolating feet. I didn't do extensive testing to listen for differences, I just put them on and haven't looked back!
Excellent sub and excellent customer service. I could go on and on but I say spend the money and I promise you will not be disappointed. I almost would give my sub away (haha fat chance) if someone says they are not satisfied. That's how confident I am that anyone will be 100% satisfied with both, sound and service!!!! Will be purchasing more in near future!
