Product Information

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.

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.

  • Computer FEA-optimized motor for even lower distortion
  • Heavy-duty voice coil for extreme power handling
  • Upgraded suspension for improved linearity and control
  • Rubber surround for durability and long life

Solid base!
I replaced Klipsch 12" subwoofer with SB-2000; and, the overall sound quality of my home theater system significantly improved with clean, tight solid base.

Awesome subwoofer!
The bass that comes from it is absolutely beautiful. Very clean and powerful. I'll be buying a second one for my living room just to see if I can knock the ceiling fan loose during an extreme sound portion of a movie lol.

Excellent so far!
I'm glad I got the sealed version instead of the ported. It fits my styles of music, which is mostly what my system is for. The SB-2000 perfectly compliments my newly-acquired Kanto TUK speakers. I'm happy to have caught this unit on sale from SVS and I hugely prefer the curved metal grill (as opposed to a cloth one). It looks better and provides an extra measure of safety against accidental damage in my cramped apartment. I'm still making small audio adjustments however. I haven't found that there is an automatic "standby" mode for the SB-2000 (although there could be). Definitely 5 Stars!!

I was worried, Not anymore
I was worried that there would not be enough punch given they are Sealed Box (SB) and my other single Sub was an Emotiva S12 which had a front and bottom speakers which made movies exciting as it shook my couch. Turns out 2 SB2000s easily replicate that feeling with a much tighter bass sound. I couldn't be happier with them.

You will love them.

I've owned it for long enough now...
I owe SVS a review. Enough has been said about sound and performance -- this thing exceeds expectations for the money spent. But here is the big thing -- mine stopped working one day. SVS was beyond pleasant and efficient with the process of replacing broken parts. I mean... not to repeat myself, but "exceeds expectations" is what comes to mind when I think about my experience with the brand so far. No, they didn't pay me a dime to write this. Net time I want to spend money on A/V gear, I'm checking with these guys first. Also, they should take their customer service skills on the road and teach others.

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.
