SVS has released its new 3000 Series subwoofers, with each model boasting a completely new high-excursion SVS driver and an 800-watts RMS, 2500+ watts peak power Sledge amplifier with discrete MOSFET output.
Comprised of the SB-3000 sealed cabinet subwoofer and PB-3000 ported cabinet subwoofer, each new one features advancements to the driver, amplifier, cabinet and overall user experience.
Harnessing the power of the Sledge amplifier is a 50 MHz Analog Devices Audio DSP with 56-bit filtering. The processing power maintains high sound quality that’s true to the source material through advanced in-room tuning, optimized frequency response curves, powerful DSP controls and more, according to the company.

Drivers in the 3000 Series subwoofers are completely new designs and built for serious punishment as well as finesse and accuracy. The proprietary SVS design features a dual ferrite magnet motor assembly weighing over 25 lbs. and delivering magnetic force to a 13-inch drive unit with long-throw parabolic surround for extreme excursion, SPLs, and longevity. A lightweight and rigid aluminum venter cone with composite fiber dustcap moves massive amounts of air to create tactile sonic energy without flexing or losing control.
Launched originally with the SVS 16-Ultra subwoofers, the 3000 Series also feature control and custom presets via the SVS subwoofer DSP smartphone app for Apple, Android and Amazon devices. The SVS app can control volume, access multiple DSP functions, and program custom presets for one-touch tuning optimized for music, movies, gaming and more. Users can also adjust crossover frequencies, a three-band parametric EQ, polarity, room gain and more, all from their favorite seat.
The SVS subwoofer app also allows advanced customization so users can name your subwoofer for easy preset switching, choose the subwoofer standby mode, and reset the subwoofer to factory settings. Bluetooth connectivity allows full control, even when the subwoofer is out of sight and bi-directional feedback shows adjustments in real time on both the app and rear panel subwoofer interface.
