The SVS SB-2000 is the best sealed subwoofer you’ll find for under $1000. It provides 12 inches of absolutely unrivaled bass and a sound that will bring out every kind of emotion. The raw punch of the powerful bass brings together this unseen sonic package. 

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.

This is without a doubt the best investment in stereo speakers I've made. Envelopes the whole living room with such great bass response. My son told me he heard(felt) in the car when they were pulling out of the driveway. Keep up the great work SVS!

So far, So Great! Just breaking them all in...
Paired with KEF 350s on TransDeco stands, driven by a Cambridge CXA80 amp, and input via BT (Cambridge link), Yamaha CD S300 player, and Fluance RT85 turntable (and preamp).
Loving it so far, as I wanted tight, natural sounding, responsive base for music only listening. I dislike the "flabby" sounds of ported subs, although I am tempted to try a PB-2000 as a second sub, to see if I change my mind. Maybe I'll win the drawing!?!?!

Great job SVS--the protective grill is bomber. Also bought the SVS isolators. No floor rumble!

SB-2000 Subs
Finally added a 2nd SB-2000 to my home theater and am more than pleased with the result of having a more complete low-end presence supporting my 11 other speakers. The beauty of the piano black-gloss finish is an extra touch I enjoy whenever I'm in the room.

Impressive Subwoofer
I have a fairly large room with high ceilings to pressurize, so just choosing any HT sub was not a smart option. For a compact subwoofer cabinet measuring only 14", the SB-2000 did an impressive job of filling the listening area with tight bass that was reproduced at an incredibly flat curve. It did an amazing job of picking up right where my Martin Logan motions left off. However, I did end up upgrading to the SB-3000 because my room is a little big for the 2000 and I also wanted to make specific EQ corrections based on my limited placement options and music preferences.
