SVS PB-2000 SubwooferSVS
INTRODUCING THE PB-2000
Delivering incredible slam, impact and extreme bass output, the PB-2000 Subwoofer provides a potent low-end foundation for any home theater or music system. Borrowing extensively from the legendary SVS Ultra Subwoofer line, the PB-2000 sets all the performance benchmarks for a subwoofer under $1,500.
Movies have an added dimension of explosive impact with sound effects and mood altering soundtracks. Music becomes a more immersive experience where basslines and percussion come to life with toe-tapping, head-nodding results. Designed for the most demanding audio palates, the PB-2000 subwoofer extends all the way down to 17Hz and easily handles reference volume levels without a hint of strain.
The PB-2000 features a front-firing 4” high-flow port with inner/outer port flares for extremely controlled bass with palpable slam. Its Sledge STA-500D DSP amplifier includes specs and features normally found in subwoofers costing much more. Conservatively rated at a robust 500 watts RMS continuous and 1100 watts peak dynamic, the amplifier features a sophisticated DSP with an array of filters, volume, gain, and phase controls for fine-tuning performance.
At the heart of each subwoofer is a rigorously engineered 12” driver with dual high-grade ferrite magnets and FEA-optimized motor for distortion-free performance in any system. The PB-2000 is one of the best subwoofers for 5.1 home theater and all other surround sound systems.
Its intelligent, rigorously engineered driver and amplifier allow the PB-2000 to outperform models costing far more and easily take the title as best ported subwoofer under $1,500.

Just received the PB-2000 yesterday to replace a common brand 12 inch ported sub with a failed amp. The difference between the SVS and the old sub is like night and day. I am feeling the action in movies rather than hearing the old sub make noise. The PB-2000 is clear and detailed yet punches out the impact without taking over the sound. It has made my music and movie watching a complete new experience. Unfortunately I am too far away from any retailer to go and check out different models, so I am left wondering what a PB-4000 or Ultra model is like! Regardless Summit HIFI made purchasing easy and Amir is the very first person ever to text me a shipping label and leave me a voice message when he shipped the order. It is too bad I missed his call. I will certainly be looking to Summit for any upgrades or maybe even a second PB-2000 if I can figure out how to justify it somehow.
Meant to write this review earlier but anyways Aamir from summit hifi went out of his way on closed hours to answere my questions which i really respect and the pb 2000 is worth the money. I finally have a sub that i havnt returned. Ive gone through about 7 subwoofers until i ordered an SVS lol
