Combining Power, Intelligent Processing, and Innovative Driver Design

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.

.More than suits my needs.
Pairs nicely with my Yamaha Receiver and very efficient Klipsch Heresy II speakers. Far exceeds any expectations I had.

I use the SVS Ultra bookshelf speakers with the SB2000 for the best music quality that I have ever had in my home. Music is the main reason that I use them. The bass that I hear from the bookshelf speakers really surprised me, along with the wonderful realism of the music. When I made the addition of the SB2000, the realism and quality enhancement was even more than I expected it could make. They are a wonderful combination for a man who is a true music lover.

Sonically this unit is perfect for me. From listening to the Beatles to watching Star Wars on bluray this does it all. It's subtle but punchy with music and then roars to life with movies. It's not just bass you hear but something you feel. I have the volume turned only a third of the way up and honestly don't see the need for more at this time.
If your on the fence? Do the research like I did. And I guarantee you'll end up back on this site. I have a website tech my room specs and what I was looking for and he steered me in the perfect direction.
And besides the front led light I feel this was the best home theater purchase I've ever made! I won't boast like others my current equipment but rest assured I know home theater and if you want to add an excellent piece to your set up get one on these power houses.
Thank you SVS!

Great product backed up by great customer service!
Picked up the SB2000, and am very very pleased with the purchase. I wanted a sub that performed well for music, and this one (being sealed) did just that .. .the sound quality is exceptional. I did not want overly boomy bass. This sub brings out the nuanced bass levels in music that I have not heard from other systems. The bass is very clean, accurate, punchy, and its fast response is great for electronic music too.
Very impressed with the quality of the product itself, fast shipping and great instructions to set up. This is my first SVS purchase and will definitely keep them in mind for future purchases. Customer service is top-notch, they are very responsive to any questions.

Bought two subwoofers, SB-1000, and SB-2000. SB-1000 for family room surround sound, and SB-2000 for large gym area. Needed help getting the SB-2000 dialed in, and the support person was great. I always have really good equipment, and these fit right in. Great product.

The SB-2000 delivers on every aural gift promised. It does subtlety and cacophony equally well. It is not the most beautiful face in the crowd, but clearly the investment went into sound quality. Once set up properly it is a great addition to a solid core system It takes a load off my KEF R500s without breaking a sweat.

The SB-2000 is an incredible sub. I can actually feel my pant legs vibrate when listening to music. . When watching movies the base hits hard and tight..I would highly recommend this product.

You don't know it is even there until this little sub comes to life. Then, there is very clean sound.
It has been used everyday for a month now.
Very happy with purchase.

I recently, (after a lot of online research), replaced my "Big Box" Soundstage 10" with a SB-2000! To be honest, at first I didn't really like it. I was expecting a HUGE WOW factor, but felt it didn't deliver. I then did my Audyssey set up, tweeked a few crossover's and this powerhouse came to life! It blends so well with my Paradigm Monitor 7's. After the suggested break in period is where this sub shines. 500 RMS you can feel! I felt like I had a brand new system. I listen to a very wide variety of music, and movies. The SB-2000 delivers with extreme class, and authority. Highly recommended,
