A sub that music lovers and movie enthusiasts can agree on
I've always found it interesting how often subwoofers get typecast as being right for one application, but not another. "Ported-box subwoofers play really loud and are unbeatable for adding boom to action movies," some people say. Others claim, "Only a sealed-box sub gives me that tight, controlled bass I need for my music." Is it too much to ask to have one sub that can easily plumb the depths of bombastic Hollywood soundtracks, yet also provide pitch-perfect, lightning-quick low frequencies that bring out the best in our music?
SVS doesn't think so. Say hello to the SVS SB-2000 — a subwoofer that gives you the best of both worlds. Its high-output 12" aluminum-cone woofer and cool-running 500-watt Class D amplifier combine to deliver stunningly accurate bass at prodigious levels all the way down to 19 Hz. And that's something any music or movie buff can really get behind.
The SB-2000 delivers tight, powerful bass that will thrill home theater enthusiasts and music lovers alike. (Shown in Piano Gloss Black.)
Deep, powerful, and precise bass for all occasions
The SB-2000 has a built-in Digital Signal Processor (DSP) that dynamically controls amplifier power to ensure you hear deep, low-distortion bass no matter how loud your music and movies get. It also uses an acoustic suspension (sealed) cabinet design with no hole or port to interact with your room, so you'll experience tight, accurate response from this sub for added depth and dimension with all of your entertainment sources.
And since the driver creates some serious pressure inside the closed cabinet, SVS builds the SB-2000 strong and rigid to eliminate any cabinet flex and keep the bass clean.
Easy system integration
Line-level inputs and outputs let you easily connect this sub to most audio systems. A Low Frequency Effects (LFE) input accepts the subwoofer connection from your A/V receiver. Its back-panel volume, crossover, and phase controls help you fine-tune the bass to ensure a perfect sonic match with your main speakers and your room.
The sub includes four conical rubber feet that reduce surface contact area to decrease the amount of vibrations transmitted to the floor. The SB-2000 makes an excellent addition to just about any stereo music or home theater setup.
"When we started carrying SVS subwoofers a few years back, I wanted to get a feel for their sonic capabilities, so I took home an SB-2000 for an audition in my home theater/music system. What I thought would be a brief visit turned into permanent residence. The SB-2000 replaced an ACI Titan subwoofer, which had anchored the sound of my system for nearly 20 years. In its day, the Titan was considered one of the best under-$1000 subs available.
I was immediately impressed by the SB-2000's extension and power with movie soundtracks. Despite its compact size, it really gets a grip on my 16' x 19' room. But what I really love about this sub is its taut, tuneful finesse with music. The SB-2000's low frequencies pair beautifully with my Dynaudio Excite X18s. It can be hard to find music with well recorded bass, but the polished Afro-pop of Fatoumata Diawara's Fenfo gives this sub a workout.”
