    Buy in pairs...

    I received these the other day, they replaced a pair of the SVS PB-1000 subs. The ported subs were fantastic, don't get me wrong... I went sealed and larger for a couple of reasons... The ported SVS subs had a bit of a chuff, and would at times get a little boomy, no matter how much tuning I did, most all ported subs have these characteristics. They were good with music, but not great, not what I personally was looking for, which is again to be expected with ported subs. Back to the SB-3000 subs, they are night and day and a breath of fresh air over their ported brethren. Musically, they add much needed depth that a ported sub cannot match. Movies, the bass is tight, there is no delay, it just happens seamlessly, it is just there, you feel the bass sonically... And these will rattle the dishes in the kitchen if you want them too... I don't, so I installed the SVS SoundPath Isolation feet along with raising the subs a good 6 inches off my wood floor, and then tuned appropriately using Audyssey on the Denon X4400H along with some manual tinkering. Now, you hear the subs, not the house and everything else in the room. When you get them properly tuned in, you should not hear them, they should blend in like they are just another part of your speakers, not a stand alone unit. And that is where you start hearing the depth of the music if you listen in two channel audio (stereo), like a record or streaming. It can put you right in the studio or club, like you are right there in the room. That is what two of these subs will do, it will be the same with movies, it makes a HUGE difference. Yes, I will recommend these, they hit hard, fast and are incredibly detailed as far as a subwoofer goes at this price point. Yes, larger subs will have a more dramatic effect, but these SB-3000 subs are a very good size for most rooms, and they will not break the bank for the sound you will receive, they can knock pictures off the wall. If you want the best sound, purchase two of these, if you have never run dual subwoofers, you do not know what you are missing. See if Best Buy will honor the SVS pricing when buying in pairs... SVS also has a buyers bill of rights, a generous upgrade program and incredible customer service. They are right there in Youngstown OH... And on a side note, I am using the SVS Ultra bookshelf speakers and Ultra center channel, Emotiva surrounds bringing up the rear due to their small size. The subs and speakers compliment each other extremely well. Oh, I built the AV and speaker stand... ;-) I hope this review helps.

    I have been into old school two channel music for some time now. I have a very nice setup with a great tube amp and high end speakers. I also listen to a lot of vinyl on my new turntable . What I was missing was that low end bass. After a lot of research and a lot of demoing different subs I went with the SVS SB3000 and I have to say I am totally happy with my choice. What a difference to my stereo sound this sub took my sound to he next stratosphere. SVS will tell you how to set the parameters according to what kind of main speakers you have. The SVS customer service was second to none and are available 24/7 . I would give this sub ten stares if they had that option.

    I can’t add anything that’s not been said already. Tight bass that fills any size room and on top of that the app works great that you can user preset for music and movies. SVS make the best subs at any price point.

    This subwoofer is everything they say it is. I've had a few subwoofers ( Veloydne F1500R, JBL L8400, JBL S120P, and a few others. But nothing comes close to this sub for "Brute-Finesse"!

    I purchased two of these. They are excellent for music because they are so tight and accurate. Great for home theater as well.
