3000 Micro Subwoofer
Reference Subwoofer Performance Just Went Micro.Chest-pounding, musical bass with depth, slam, and impact, from a shockingly compact 10-inch cabinet. Many micro subwoofers have tried, all have failed. Until now. The miniature yet mighty SVS 3000 Micro subwoofer seamlessly blends into any room and speaker system, energizing the space with astonishingly rich, effortless bass that’s all the more impressive given its micro-sized enclosure.
Featuring innovations from the reference SVS 16-Ultra subwoofers married to fully active dual opposing 8-inch drivers, and an 800 watt RMS, 2,500 watt Peak Power Sledge STA-800D2 amplifier with discrete MOSFET output, 3000 Micro delivers performance that obliterates every micro subwoofer that has come before. It also features the powerful SVS subwoofer control smartphone app for advanced tuning and DSP. Finally, a micro subwoofer worthy of the name SVS.

- Quick Start Guide
Great sound from that little sub. Completes my office desk 2 channel setup to perfection! Thank you so much Aamir for your great suggestion!
I bought this subwoofer to use in my home office. It's so tiny it hides under the desk taking up no room. But it certainly is not tiny in sound! This thing hits hard and is perfect for music listening.
I did run some measurements and ended up using EQ/DSP to achieve a nice flat response in my room. Prior to that the sub was a bit boomy in my smaller room. So that's something to keep in mind.
Amir from Summit Hifi was great. Quick, friendly communication. Fast shipping. I will certainly shop with Summit again.
Really love this sub. Integrates wonderfully with my Bowers & Wilkins CM9 S2 towers. Also, I highly recommend purchasing from Summit Hi-Fi. Very responsive and easy to work with.
Aamir is great guy to deal with and knowledgeble in HIFi. The intent of SB 3000 was to pair it with Naim Atom/Focal Chora 806 to be set up in my 5th wheel camper. The size was perfect with dual woofer . My use is almost 90% HIFi listening so I really did not want the Boom, Boom but almost the lows to take off where the speakers leave and make the lows disappear as if sound coming out of the speaker. The app enables me to control the setting very conveniently. I am happy with the purchase. For larger room you may want consider bigger sub.
The finish in White is sharp looking and the dimension is very appropriate for my 5th wheel RV. When the kids watch movies it sounds amazing with the Sub on to default setting. SVS makes precise sounding Sub at much lower price point than JL. Even for home hifi you could probably afford a pair of SB 4000 than a single JL F112. And 2 subs will absolutely sound better than 1, pushing the air bit more precisily and you will be amazed to hear the SQ improve.
