SVS Reimagines Its Most Popular Subwoofers Of All Time
Renowned for its high-performance and excellent value subwoofers, SVS, has announced the release of the 2000 Pro Series that promises to set performance benchmarks at its price point.
The SVS 2000 Pro Series includes three models which feature an all-new 12-inch high excursion SVS driver and a Sledge STA-550D amplifier delivering 550 watts RMS (1,500+ watts peak) with discrete MOSFET output for “effortless, room-energizing bass with pinpoint control and accuracy.”
At the heart of the Sledge amplifier is a 50 MHz Analog Devices Audio DSP with 56-bit filtering, which is reported to be the most sophisticated DSP engine ever used in a home subwoofer.
The lineup includes SB-2000 Pro ($1,800 RRP) sealed cabinet, PB-2000 Pro ($1,950 RRP) ported cabinet, and PC-2000 Pro ($1,800 RRP) ported cylinder cabinet models.
The new series, according to SVS, draws on technology featured in the brand's flagship 16-Ultra models that have proven popular with AV enthusiasts around the globe. SVS says its completely new driver design “is built for serious output as well as finesse and accuracy.”
According to Gary Yacoubian, SVS President and Managing Partner:
The proprietary SVS design features a dual ferrite magnet motor assembly with long-throw parabolic surround for extreme excursion with room pressurizing SPLs. A lightweight and rigid aluminum vented cone with composite fiber dustcap moves immense amounts of air to create tactile sonic energy without losing control. The result is accurate response, even at the most intense listening levels.
First seen with the release of SVS' flagship 16-Ultra subwoofers, the new 2000 Pro range features the SVS Subwoofer DSP smartphone app for Apple, Android, and Amazon devices. The app brings a whole new level of convenience to dialling in and tuning your subwoofer, all from your listening position.
We reimagined every aspect of the 2000 Pro design, from driver and amp to cabinet and control. By deploying the most advanced technology from our flagship models with new innovations, we've achieved reference performance at a lower price range than ever before. They are a true reflection of the passion we have for creating world-class audio experiences.
