Two new subwoofer models have been revealed.
SVS has announced the launch of its latest subwoofers. The new 3000 Series includes the SB-3000 sealed cabinet subwoofer and the PB-3000 ported cabinet subwoofer.
"SVS is further asserting its dominance in the home subwoofer market by deploying the most advanced technology and achieving unrivaled performance at a lower price range than ever before with the 3000 Series," said Gary Yacoubian, SVS President and Managing Partner. "Our engineering team challenged themselves to bring reference subwoofer performance to new lows so more people could enjoy chest-thumping output, subterranean deep bass extension, pinpoint accuracy and all the benefits of a world-class subwoofer. I'm proud to say, mission accomplished. The 3000 Series are unmatched in performance for the price and well beyond."
Both models utilize a new high-excursion SVS driver and an 800 watts RMS, 2,500+ watts peak power Sledge amplifier with discrete MOSFET output. Likewise, the units include a 50 MHz Analog Devices Audio DSP with 56bit filtering. Under the hood, the drivers feature a dual ferrite magnet motor construction with a 13-inch drive unit, long-throw parabolic surround, and a lightweight and rigid aluminum venter cone with composite fiber dustcap.
The SB-3000 sealed cabinet subwoofer model is rated for a frequency response of 18Hz to 270Hz +/-3 dB. Meanwhile, the PB-3000 ported cabinet subwoofer model is rated for 16Hz to 260Hz +/-3dB in standard mode and 18Hz to 260Hz +/-3dB in sealed mode.
Here's a full rundown of pricing and finish options for each model:
SB-3000 (Premium Black Ash) - $999.99
SB-3000 (Piano Gloss Black) - $1099.99
PB-3000 (Premium Black Ash) - $1,399.99
