SB 3000 review
Easy to unpack, setup and integrate with speakers. Sounds great. Got dual subs. Can feel the sound too low to hear. I keep the sub volume relatively low so as not to dominate the sound stage.

Impressive, clear and deep bass.
The SB 3000 has perfectly integrated with my B&W 702 S2 loud speakers. Filling out the deficit from 20-50 Hz with precise, musical bass. My listening room has never sound or felt better. This subwoofer absolutely cranks!!!

Two words: World class. This applies to the performance of the sub and to SVS customer support.

Better than Viagra
The SB-3000 is better than Viagra. No one is compensating me for this review in any shape or form. I am a Trial Attorney on the East Coast for over 22 years and I tell it the way it is. I have been building sound systems since High School. Recently the amplifier in my former subwoofer had its last day. I did a tremendous amount of research before I decided on the SB-3000. Both myself my wife and daughter were blown away with th rapid accuracy and low frequency responsiveness. This subwoofer is superior to subwoofers costing $3000.............NO JOKE......It is better than Viagra. This is a real review. BTW the Customer service is fantastic.

More is better!
If 2 subs are better than 1, and 3 subs better than 2, then logically 4 is better than 3! :)

All kidding aside, these have a lot of power in a small box. My room couldn't really accommodate the larger subs with out looking like I had several park benches along the walls. But I had plenty of room for a 4th, which in theory covering more area is a good idea over just bigger. Together with MSO and MiniDSP, I got the perfect tune for my area.

Price per db is amazing!
The form-factor is important to me. Most of these large subs are the size of a park bench, and rightfully so to run a 16" woofer, However, the SB-3000's do a fine job on their own and even better as one among mulitple. I've just purchased my 4th one to be discreetly positioned in my open floor plan living room, which is difficult for any one sub to cover.

Very happy with this sonic addition
My home theatre is in a large room (30'x40') with high ceilings, which is open to other living areas. My setup is with Totem Acoustic speakers including dual subs. I am very happy with their sound, but the bass was never superb. I have a few audio setups in my home, and wanted to improve my home theatre experience.

I have decided to move to dual SB-3000s based on significant amounts of time reading reviews. Reviews aren't everything, and my space is its own unique place, so I thought it best to grab an SB-3000 and try it.

I am running only one SB-3000 and it sounds much better than my dual subs before. I listen to a lot of music with this set up, and have noticed a nice improvement to the already excellent soundstage. The sub adds to the sound without being a new identifiable source.

The app is wonderful to use, and makes adjustments very convenient. I wish there was a way to enable/disable only the bluetooth functionality, but that's not a big concern - just a very small note.

The difference with movies is substantial and while I thought my previous set up had decent bass, I was clearly just convincing myself of that being true. It's fantastic.

I'm definitely going to go with a second SB-3000 after a bit more time with just one. I am impressed with only the one in this large area, and after a few weeks with it, I'll grab the second to see what it's like.

I'll also add a note that a sale happened to go on shortly after I purchased my sub, and I wrote to ask if I could get the discount. I got an excellent phone call and did get that. I couldn't be happier with SVS support. They called me just a couple hours after I wrote. Fantastic.

Highly recommend. It's so easy to get one and try it out.

SB-3000 x 4!!
I recently upgraded my whole Home Theater and part of the upgrade was to integrate 3 subwoofers. I chose the SB-3000 model for a 9.4.4 configuration and could not be happier. The subs hit low, are fast and articulate when watching movies. They are musical and complement my main speakers (Revels) when playing my favorite tunes. The phone app is intuitive and easy to use, it makes the set up so much easier. I still used a MiniDSP mic to calibrate and dial everything in together. The results are absolutely fantastic. SVS, as always, provides top notch customer service and the 5 year warranty is just peace of mind that translates in zero buyers remorse. I still owe another SVS sub that I bought over 12 years ago that sits in my secondary entertainment area. I am a customer for life!!

Dual SB-3000s are AWESOME
When I upgraded my home theater from a 5.1 setup to 7.1.4, I went with Golden Ear speakers all around, using the Triton Reference as the mains and reusing my old Sunfire sub. Technically, I guess it is a 7.3.4 as the Triton Reference has their own LFE inputs with an 1800 watt amp for the woofers along with the 2700 watt amp in the Sunfire. I believed that I had enough oomph for the low frequencies, so didn't consider buying new subs. When the Sunfire finally broke down, I started searching for a replacement. After watching and reading many reviews, I decided on SVS as a brand and then eventually, the SB-3000 due to its specs and physical size. The PB-3000 was considered but too big for the room, so I was a little hesitant that I might be compromising a bit since it seems like all the PB models had rave reviews for the deep base found in action movies. Once set up, I was in awe of the huge impact the dual SB-3000s provided. For the first time, I could really feel the base when it was called for; clean, tight and responsive! I have one in the front next to the left main, the other diagonally across in the back of the room. They bring a whole new level of realism to the movies and my friends and family are super impressed. I am extremely happy with the SB-3000s and recommend them highly. I thought I had enough bass before but was I wrong! The app on the phone to control the subs is super convenient too.
