The SB-2000 500 Watt DSP Controlled 12" Compact Sealed Subwoofer delivers an unrivaled bass experience for music, movies, TV, and everything you want to listen to. Enjoy deeper, more impactful sound experiences worthy of emotional and visceral reactions.

The SVS SB-2000 subwoofer achieves a staggering 19 - 240Hz frequency response from an enclosure weighing only 35 pounds and measuring 14.2" all around (without feet and grille). The subwoofer's weight, compact footprint, and elegant appearance make it easy to set up in any room. It's also one of the best subwoofer for 5.1 home theaters and other surround systems.

No small performer, the SB-2000 matches or beats the output levels of subwoofers twice the size and weight. An innovative driver and amplifier, high end materials, and revised tuning allow the SB-2000 subwoofer achieve levels of articulation, musicality, dynamics, and fathomless extension unequaled in other compact subwoofers. Put simply, it's the best performing sealed subwoofer under $1000 by a wide margin.

Sledge Amplifier STA-500D

The Sledge STA-500D is the sonic engine that brings an unprecedented amp technology and sophistication not found anywhere else at this price point. On sheer power alone, it effortlessly punches out 500 watts RMS and 1100 peak watts.

The SB-2000 boasts smooth and precise digital signal processing at all drive levels, plus flexible connectivity for ease of setup and seamless integration into all home theater and stereo systems. When it's not in use, the energy-saving standby mode consumes less than 0.5 watts. All told, this subwoofer is a never-before-at-this-price sonic package.

SVS 12" High Output Driver

Designed from scratch - and optimized through exhaustive testing until it delivered unprecedented performance - the powerful 2000-series driver does SVS proud.

Matched and maximized to its Sledge amplifier, it effortlessly delivers the STA-500D's precision, dynamic flexibility, and raw punch. The result: the driver delivers higher output, improved linearity, and lower distortion, which means loads of clean, precise, deep, powerful bass for your movies and music.

Really Fills in the Low Frequencies
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.

The SB-2000 Exceeded Expectations
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!

I love this Sub!
Very musical, not at all boomy! Excellent also for movies. Blends perfectly with my main speakers. No complaints! It's hard to beat SVS.

thumbs up
This sb-2000 was bought during svs' black Friday sale and paired with two svs prime satellites in a 2.1 configuration.

For its relatively petite size, it certainly has a big sound.

Furthermore, factoring in its relatively petite sale price, this sub is outstanding.

Clean bass
Deep clean bass. I replaced my Martin Logan dynamo 700x with this one and it’s a big improvement.

Wow! I didn't know what I was missing.
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?

An absolutely amazing product
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.

Great all-around
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.
