Three new subwoofer models have been revealed.
SVS has announced the latest additions to its subwoofer collection. The new 4000 Series includes the SB-4000 sealed cabinet subwoofer, PB-4000 ported cabinet subwoofer, and the PC-4000 ported cylinder cabinet subwoofer.
"While the rest of the industry is chasing benchmarks SVS established with the 16-Ultra Series, we raised the bar and redefined what is possible at even lower price points, taking the finest technology available and applying it in a way that lets more people than ever enjoy the breathtaking benefits of reference quality bass," said Gary Yacoubian, SVS President and Managing Partner. "Audiophiles and home theater fans who understand high performance audio will recognize what a genuine accomplishment the 4000 Series is after the first bassline drops or action movie erupts to life. And for the price, there's simply nothing in the same area code."
The 4000 Series subwoofers are powered by a Sledge STA-1200D amplifier along with 50-MHz Analog Devices Audio DSP with 56-bit filtering. Each unit also features a dual ferrite magnet motor assembly with a 13.5-inch drive unit and long-throw parabolic surround.
