    Best sub-woofer for $500, hands down.

    I'm relatively new to HT purchases, but i've already owned a Martin Logan Dynamo 700w and a 1000w for a few weeks each until I've had to return them both because they just weren't a fit for me. I'm EXTREMELY hard to please when it comes to audio. They were decent subs but to me, not worth the hefty price tags on each one. In-home consult manager told me about this sub and praised it for being the best bang for the buck. I figured it would be great at low volumes and have a ton of trouble when cranked up near reference, for that price. Right out of the box, without even having the sub broken-in, sounds better than the ML's I had previously after having been broke in for a couple weeks each. There are differences and I think ML is slightly better for music but my primary usage is for movies and big action sequences. Room is roughly 12x18 and this single sub fills it with plenty of kick right out of the box. I can only imagine what it will be like after about 20 hours of break-in.

    Probably an overkill for our little living room but boy... what a floorshaker. I thought I don't really need a sub because my front speakers can go as low as 38Hz, but there is a whole new world of experience below that. And this thing can go down to 19Hz! I don't think I could do any better for the money. They say ported subwoofers aren't that good for music listening, but if set up right, this one is awesome. I was watching Deadpool (that I've already seen) to test it, but I finished the whole movie. It's better sound than in a movie theater.

    Best Subwoofer under $500

    I picked the SVS PB-1000 based on alot of research and reading through AVS Forums and the Reddit Hometheater page. This sub comes highly recommended and it really delivers! I don't think you will find another under 20Hz subwoofer anywhere else for this price. The PB-1000 is also well built and was easy to set up. The ported version is definitely more suited to TV and movies, but it still does very well with music. If you want tighter bass, I would suggest the SB-1000. Unless you are jumping up to the $1000 subwoofer range, you can't go wrong with this sub.

    This is my first subwoofer for home use ever, and I'm very happy with my purchase. SVS has fantastic support and was very quick to answer a couple of basic questions that I had. Sound is excellent in my home theater and I can't believe I waited so long to buy one! Value is excellent for this unit as it is -very- reasonably priced, especially for everything you get in terms of quality. If I could change something, it would be to either move the connections to the side or change their positioning on the back by 90 degrees so that I could turn the sub sideways and have the cables hidden.

    Purchase in pairs.

    I have a pair of these, and they sound fantastic. If you have a small to medium size room these will do a nice job of taking care of the bass. If you have a medium to larger sized room, a pair of the PB-2000 subs would be a better pick. You cannot go wrong for the money.

    Chuffing even at low volume

    I like the sound for Music a lot, however I can't listen to any songs with heavy bass without this thing chuffing. The noise produced is loud enough to hear through the sound or the music or movie. This has the potential to be an amazing sub, especially for the price and size, but can't figure out why it's chuffing so bad.

    I did a lot of research before buying this sub. For a comparable price, there are a few brands i was looking at including Polk and Klipsch. What i liked about this sub , is the low frequency range which you can really feel when playing a movie with heavy bass. very pleased with my purchase

    anyone in need of a powered subwoofer at an attractive price, this is the one you want. Tight bass is delivered effortlessly. If you have a large room, buy the ported sub and a smaller room, buy the enclosed sub. Velodyne, this is your competition in this price range.

    This is definitely a HT sub. Drops nice and low, great for movies. A little slow for HiFi music but not terrible. If you are 80% movies and 20% music, this is a great happy medium at a entry level price. Unbelievable volume for a entry level sub.

    Highly recommend for anyone with a $500 budget. I bought two of them and couldn't be happier. It has added so much to my home theatre and music listening experience. Best Buy associate was also very helpful placing the order for me.

    Loud Chaffing

    Love the sound with most music and movies I play, but certain deep bass sections in both movies and music make the sub produce a loud chaffing sound. It's getting really annoying. I'm by no means pushing this sub to it's limits.

    This is only the second subwoofer I have ever purchased and can’t believe the increase in performance compared to my old Yamaha subwoofer. It is large but has great output and sound quality.

    I was previously using a MK 12 inch sub and it did pretty good, but just wasn't as responsive as I wanted. This sub solved that problem, works well for movies and music.

    The is sub is the best for mid size room. And is best matched with any of your satellite or bookshelf speaker. No distortion at high volume.

    Awesome subwoofer. Completes my home theater perfectly. My main speakers can go as low as 34Hz, but this is a whole different league. Works great for music too.

    Very nice subwoofer for its price. I had to make several adjustments to my 5.1.2 Atmos setup for it to provide the bass I was hoping for. Finally happy with it.

    With movies, this subwoofer delivers a visceral thump, which is not surprising. However, I was surprised by the subtlety with music.

    This is the best value. Hooked up to my Denon AV, it delivers unbelievable lows (19hz shakes the room) and excellent highs.
