Summary: This subwoofer will shake your house and could possibly broke your windows. I'm so glad I purchased this subwoofer. It is so good with my 5.1 surround system. The price is so cheap even at retail price. Get it, you will be happy that you didn't get the cheaper subs in the 200 to 300 range. Don't miss out on this sub if you love to watch movies.
Summary: In a small room, the PB1000 cranks out satisfying lows in all genre of music, lending a woody and articulate thump to the string bass in a jazz ensemble, to a jarring tattoo in technical metal. Movies boom, sometimes alarmingly. It has enabled both CSW Model Sixes and Pioneer towers to out perform their adequate specifications, and I still have yet to run room correction EQ. A tremendous value from SVS.
Summary: This sub is an amazing peice of work. Can reproduce anything you throw at it. I have this paired with a Pioneer VSX 1123-k, Infinity P163s and a PC351. The sound is incredible for the money. SVS is an American company you can really count on. They have a 45 day in home audition and if you don't like what you hear and feel just send it back on their dime. If they upgrade the model within a year you will get an upgrade.
Summary: I've had subwoofers that shake the house, but this one even shakes me from my head to my toes. A complete steal for 499 and free shipping if you ask me. Easy hook up to my onkyo receiver and I am in movie heaven. Seriously, if you love quality in your home theater system, but don't have as much money for the really big stuff, this sub is a winner.
Great for a 2 sub setup but sounds like what it is...a 10"

Summary: I bought this sub to act more as a mid-low woofer in a two-sub system for music. It works great for what I'm using it for but I'd hate to think I had to rely on this unit for my primary sub, especially for movies. It's just not going to move the air that a 12" speaker is going to. I read lots of reviews about how you can't tell the difference between this unit and those with larger speakers. Don't believe it.
Excerpt: This thing is absolutely awesome, and there's no way you can get anything better than this for the price. Throw in the absolutely fabulous customer service, no risk trial, and one year upgrade option and you have an easy decision to make.
Excerpt: I don't usually write reviews , but this awesome sub that I just got a few weeks ago is just too amazing & I have to let people know that for $500 bucks you can not find a better,more powerful subwoofer than the PB-1000. I was debating between the Martin Logan dynamo 700 & the PB-1000, besides saving $$ I also made the perfect choice, there was no way the Martin Logan was going to fill my 300sq ft. room with deep, powerful bass.
Excerpt: I rarely write reviews, but my experience with SVS surely deserves comment. It is not common to find companies that offer great products let alone high quality customer service. I had several conversations and emails with Jack who graciously put up with my questions and concerns. I do not easily spend money, but was initially willing to buy a PB12-NSD. Jack convinced me that it may not fit in my cabinet, and more importantly a PB-1000 would probably fill my needs.
