Customer Reviews for SVS SB-2000 500 Watt DSP Controlled 12" Compact Sealed Subwoofer
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!
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.
