Future Audiophile Reviews SB-1000 Pro
“Audiophiles won’t find many sealed subwoofers in this price range that offer the combination of a 12-inch driver, 325 watts of power, and the ability to go as deep as this one does. I’m certain that the bass provided from it will bring a big smile to your face.”
HiFi Sound Enthusiast Reviews SB-1000 Pro
“Impresses in performance. Tight and responsive with very impressive impact. This subwoofer is compact, easy to tune, and just elevates the musical experience for what I listen to tremendously. Goes down the sound range comfortably. I don’t know of any other subwoofer that offers all this at that price range. Nothing I know of comes close. Truly a value king subwoofer.”

Tone Audio Reviews 1000 Pro Series s

AVForums Awards SB-1000 Pro "Best Value "
“Precise and controlled performance, combined with a surprising amount of depth considering its dimensions. Smaller footprint makes it easier to install, and it's relatively flexible in terms of positioning. Easily the best value subwoofer we have seen this year.”
Soundstage Reviews PB-1000 Pro
“A heck of a value, especially if you’re looking for a good ported sub that’s equally up to the task of delivering foundation-shaking low-frequency effects and the nuances of musical midbass. Simply melted into my speakers. This is one hell of a bass-maker.”
YouTuber “Home Theater Gamer” Reviews PB-1000 Pro
“There are no cons to the PB-1000 Pro Subwoofer. Output and volume are plentiful. For the price and performance, the PB-1000 Pro is the best entry level subwoofer I’ve ever heard. Cannot recommend this subwoofer enough!”

AV Nirvana Reviews the PB-1000 Pro
"This sub is certainly an overachiever. It reinforced bass shy material in a natural, pleasing way. And, it truly shined as a home theater subwoofer, banging out prodigious and pleasing lows. Quality, features, and performance, at a sweet price, make this subwoofer a great buy. An outstanding warranty and caring service make it an even better one! Recommended!"
SB-1000 Pro Receives Home Cinema Choice's "Best Buy" Award
"The SVS SB-1000 Pro renders these carefully designed bass signatures with nuance but does so with a visceral energy. By the end I actually felt shellshocked…Once you factor in the price, the SB-1000 Pro becomes irresistible, and is now the budget sub to beat."
YouTuber “Zero Fidelity” Reviews 3000 Micro and SB-1000 Pro
"You definitely get your moneys worth with either of these subwoofers. For under $1,000, the 3000 Micro is great for music and home theater, and gives you natural low bass extension that much larger subwoofers deliver at double the cost. The SB-1000 Pro sounds much larger than it’s physical size suggests, and is a complete game changer when it comes to music and movies. Can’t go wrong with either products and I highly recommend!"
Sound & Vision Honors 1000 Pro s with Top Pick Award
After rigorously testing both SVS 1000 Pro Series subwoofers with content ranging from "The Haunting" to Norah Jones, a reviewer from top AV site Sound & Vision, honored them with a coveted "Top Pick" award and this praise. "Enhanced the experience with bass that displayed more prominence and heft plus an ability to shake the subfloor. Quick and punchy. The build quality of both is impeccable and getting to control them wirelessly using the best-in-class SVS app is a very impressive extra feature in an affordable subwoofer."
Home Theater HiFi Reviews the SB-1000 Pro
"Extension down to 20 Hz. Prodigious bass output belying its size. Easy on the eyes. SVS really raises the bar. It is brilliantly designed with features and performance belying its price."
Home Theater Forum Reviews the PB-1000 Pro
"So what does a company do then when it’s time to update a storied subwoofer like the PB-1000? You trickle down some of the proven enhancements already part of the other series and package them in a manner where almost anyone can afford it, then you make the thing bulletproof. Very good detail and a nice balanced sound. It brilliantly played what was within its capability. Job well done!"
HiFi Reference Reviews the PB-1000 Pro
"Whether it’s with music playback or watching movies, the PB-1000 Pro offers the best of both worlds. Delivers some of the loudest and deepest bass that I have ever experienced at this price. But, even at modest volumes, the lows always remain controlled. True cinema-level bass quality."
Residential Tech Today Reviews the SB-1000 Pro
"A capable workhorse. I can’t believe bass like this exists under $500. Run, do not walk to your SVS dealer and pick one (or two) up. If you’ve got the budget, feel free to spend up in their line, as well. You won’t be disappointed."
The Master Switch Reviews SB-1000 Pro
“One of the most accomplished, confident subwoofers available today. It has some of the best design, controls, and usability that we’ve ever tested, and it sounds absolutely splendid. We highly recommend it to just about everybody. At the time of writing, we think it’s the best subwoofer you can currently buy.”
