Mind Blown movie experience
I absolutely love this sub. It has transformed my living room from a decent movie experience into a mind blowing experience now. I can only imagine if I had 1 more added. My lord that would be amazing. I've shown 5 family members now and they're so blown away that that said my house is a better movie experience than actually going to the movies.Minus the big screen I'm sure. If I can get the money up I most definitely want another one with a wireless setup on that one. I'm so glad I found SVS a long time ago from listening to my guy Howard Stern. I just hope that it doesn't take me 3 years to get another PB-3000

Great addition to system
I've had two SVS PC12-NSDs for several years now. Been wanting to get more punch and planned on upgrading to dual PB-3000s. Unfortunately, I couldn't find any buyers for the PC12s and the wife said "NO" to me buying two more subs. But, I could just add one PB-3000 and keep my two PC12s! Score! The 3000 completes the room. I barely have it running when we watch movies as we already have enough bass (per wife). But when I watch by myself I crank that baby up and boy does it rock! It just fills in the room with bass. SVS Tech Support did help me with the settings to get out of it what I was looking for so a big shout out to them. I have it tucked away on the back wall, mostly out of sight. Just for fun, I moved it up to the front with the TV and somehow it made my TV look smaller. Not kidding and our TV is an 85". And this comes from someone who built a box the exact size of the PB-3000 and had it sitting in the room for a year to help get the wife's buy-in to prove it would fit ok in our room. Great product and great service...the reason I'm a SVS customer for life. Thank you!

OMG…
After 2 klipsch SPL 150 died on me after only 8 months….I was discouraged and decided to move on. After many ….many days of research, SVS was probably the name that came out more often. Only problem was that I wanted dual sub, they just sound better,so I was going for dual Pb2000 pro, but on my HT group on Facebook many people were telling me the same thing……buy the best sub that you can buy now….and a second one down the road…..and this is what I did. Got a Pb 3000, and boy I love it. This thing is just amazing. Dual klipsch spl 150 don’t even come close to a single Pb3000. Unfortunately can’t afford to buy a second one any time soon, but I’m already saving , can’t wait for dual. Called the customer service to ask a couple of questions about installation…..was a breeze. Overall everything has been and ….above and beyond….experience. Would recommend SVS to any friend….100%

Already Satisfied...haven't even received it yet
Dear Potential Buyers AND SVS (SVS scroll to the bottom),

I have done plenty of research around subwoofers across a wide range of brands and prices and SVS was constantly showing up and after watching ample amounts of reviews online and reading some written reviews/comparisons...I already know that my less than 280 sq/f room is going to change dramatically. However, you would think that one would write a review AFTER receiving the product, but not me. To be entirely honest, not only did I constantly see others commenting on their customer support, but I decided to try their support myself and I'll tell ya, they're the Chick Fil-A of audio customer support. People understood exactly what I was asking, responses via phone call and online chat were quick and my questions were answered respectfully and in detail that I could understand.

I know this subwoofer is going to do miracles too because right now I am running a Sony subwoofer that's over 8 years old and boasts a maximum of 120W...yes, 210W. Jumping to a starting wattage of 800 will be noticable, but I also know that not only is their sound quality clean and clear, but it is well tuned. To any interested buyers, if you order you need to learn how the different modes work. Sealed mode for music will make a noticable change that many find more pleasing to listen to but you will need to insert the foam things and change it on your phone app. I think if you are spending this much on a subwoofer, one should take the time to learn so they tailor their experience to what they need. I won't say you should go with the SB-3000 if you don't want to learn, but I would argue (excluding small environments need compact) the BP-3000 is the better deal because it can do both ported which is usually more desired for movies, and sealed which is more desired for music whereas the SB-3000, your only option is sealed.

For casual home theatre people who want a b***** experience, this will more than suffice for your experience as well as anyone else in the room (do that subwoofer crawl...it exists for a reason). If you're looking for the more optimal experience and your budget is deeper, the PB-4000 is awesome since its the happy middle between the PB-3000 and the 16 Ultra series...but I would recommend the PB16-Ultra first. If I could have dual PB16-Ultra's, I would have them in a heartbeat (remember that 1-year trade up program for in case you change your mind and decide to go 4000/16ultra). Just remember, the PB-3000 is a beast as many other reviews also express; so, don't think because you're not getting the Ultra or the 4000 that you're getting jipped of a great experience. This sub will be a point of conversation after you demo it to your friends, I almost guarantee. Added bonus, it's black ash veneer makes it easier to incorporate into your home without it looking odd and out of place. Black does go with everything. Some may think the look of a subwoofer is not appealing but personally I think the grill cover is less appealing.

To those looking into the PB-3000, I hope my review was helpful and I did not deter you. If you were at all questioning your choice during this read, let me remind you that even after everything I have written in this, I still bought one with my own money. I am personally not concerned and god forbid something goes awry, I know I am still going to be well taken care of by their customer service. If you want a well-rounded experience that makes you want to be a returning customer as well as makes you want to recommend them to others, SVS is the one of few all-around brands that will provide you that. So if I can leave you with one last thing, it's this:

Roses are Red,
Violets are Blue
The PB-3000
Is the right choice for you!
____________________________________

SVS,

If you do read this, I personally recommend changing the cover/grill thing to a darker black felt-like material (or at least felt-looking material) such as what you would find on Klipsch, Sony's, Bose, etc.. It makes it easier to blend it into other audio systems integrator speaker lines without looking separate/off-brand. This change would make these speaker much more appealing to who are also focused on aesthetic matching (my other half wanted me to stick with Klipsch to match the rest of our speakers but in no way, shape, or form am I buying a Klipsch subwoofer). So, with first hand experience as well, I can attest that there is a lot of others out there who think the same. To me, that becomes an entire sector of customers lost just because they do not match which cannot be that difficult of a change to make to appeal to those audiences. I recommend considering designing them to all be swappable with other models and just sell it separately...or make it the standard grill that gets shipped...or do both to appeal to both areas of your customer base. If you do find a way to make these style grills, please email me because I want to be at the top of that list. Also, I have seen some reviews online that if you have these subs on carpet and you drag, paint comes off...don't want to test this out myself because my carpets are roughed up enough already thanks to my new puppy, but something I recommend looking into just as a precaution (The_VillaMan on Youtube who is one of your reviewers noticed this issue as well as a reference).

You guys are awesome, you make amazing products, and offer respectable and reputable customer service. Never stop innovating and improving. The sky is the limit for you guys, so don't stop getting creative and innovating. All of the little things add up!

Noisy amplifiers
Pros:
-Aesthetically perfect in my opinion, sleek minimalistic design with excellent fit and finish, and not too big.
-A pair of these were able to dominate my large challenging space.
-Very responsive customer support from selection through end of use.
-Easy to acquire and reasonably good value relative to performance.

Cons:
-Noisy amplifiers as have been alluded to in various reviews and on forums. The noise sounds like a combination of hiss and digital noise and both of my units had it equally as bad. Many people may not care of notice, but if you spend a lot of effort having a low noise floor in your home theater, you may be disappointed that your subwoofers could be the noisiest aspect of your system. There are just too many good options in this price range for this to be acceptable.
-No XLR inputs - Of course I knew this buying it, but these subs are on the threshold of price/performance to where I think XLR may be expected.

In the end, I cannot recommend this sub due to the high noise floor. If SVS improved the amplifier and added XLR, this would be a perfect sub.
