Product Description

With trickle down technology from the 16 Ultra Series, the SVS PB-4000 powered subwoofer is smart in its operation and shudderingly brutal in its execution. Bass this badass should be handled with extreme care. Enjoy.


The SVS PB-4000 subwoofer thrills action movie fans and audiophiles with staggering output and subterranean deep bass extension down to 13Hz with an amazing degree of subtlety and finesse. A high-excursion 13.5-inch driver and 1,200 Watts RMS, 4,000+ Watts peak power amplifier with Analog Devices most advanced audio DSP enables variable port tuning and unlocks a smartphone app with advanced DSP and custom presets for precise and convenient tuning. 

Unparalleled Low Frequency Depth, Power and Detail

Thunderous low frequency output and extreme deep bass extension, with accuracy and control, the PB-4000 is a benchmark setting subwoofer on every level with unheard-of performance and features for even double the price. The sophisticated DSP amplifier creates three port tuning modes, each with individual response curves to achieve the most accurate in-room frequency response possible. With the PB-4000, it’s like having three subwoofers in one. Effortlessly powerful with bass that extends far below the threshold of human hearing, the SVS PB-4000 creates a revelatory experience with every movie and music listening session.

Jaw-Dropping Bass Extension: The SVS PB-4000 combines seismic power and fathomless low frequency extension you can feel with refinement and musicality that suspends your sense of disbelief. With trickle down technology from the 16-Ultra Series, named top subwoofers in the world by nearly every audio publication and industry group in 2017, the PB-4000 crushes expectations and delivers a level of unrivalled subwoofer performance only available from SVS.

Legendary SVS Output & Control: The SVS PB-4000 subwoofer driver delivers on the full potential of the Sledge STA-1200D amplifier’s immense power with precision and control to produce room energising SPLs and effortless low frequency extension with pinpoint accuracy at all drive levels.

  • Dual ferrite magnet motor assembly weighing nearly 18kgs generates immense magnetic force and excursion of the 343mm (13.5") driver to produce massive low frequency output well below the limits of human hearing.
  • Edge wound voice coil with eight-layer aluminium flat wire minimises distortion and power compression while providing excellent heat dissipation and linearity ensuring precise control.
  • Lightweight and rigid composite cone with premium glass fibre dustcap generates massive output with pinpoint accurate frequency response.
  • Proprietary injection molded gasket and long-throw parabolic surround ensure longevity and allow extreme excursion and SPLs.

Sledge Amplifier, Massive Output, Sophisticated DSP: Rated conservatively at 1,200 Watts RMS, and 4,000+ Watts peak power, the PB-4000 Sledge STA-1200D amplifier uses an efficient Class D design combined with fully discrete MOSFET output and a sophisticated Analog Devices DSP engine. The result is a level of effortless power and advanced processing not available from any other powered subwoofer manufacturer.

High Current Output of Fully Discrete MOSFETs with Efficiency of Class D Amplifier: Efficiency of a Class D amplifier with the ability to move massive amounts of current through the fully discrete MOSFETs enabling immense output and precise control for outstanding real-world subwoofer performance at all drive levels.

Sophisticated 50MHz High Resolution Analog Devices Audio DSP: Most advanced digital processor ever used in a subwoofer maintains pinpoint accuracy and pristine sound quality through advanced in-room tuning, optimised frequency response curves, powerful DSP controls and more.

Variable Port Tuning Modes: Foam port plugs come standard with the PB-4000 and allow for variable tuning. Each response curve for the three port tuning modes; standard, extended and sealed, is fully configured to the respective mode to achieve balanced and accurate low frequency response with all tuning preferences.

Active Power Factor Correction (PFC) & Ground Loop Isolation: Serves as a line conditioner, surge suppressor and voltage regulator letting the amplifier deal with wide voltage fluctuations and ensuring the subwoofers operate flawlessly on any household circuit no matter how unstable the incoming current. An isolated circuit creates a vanishingly low noise floor by eliminating the potential for ground loop hums from outside components resulting in absolute sonic transparency.

Smartphone App

Groundbreaking smartphone app works with Apple iOS and Android devices to unleash the full depth, force and nuance of the PB-4000 subwoofer by controlling all DSP functions including: volume, parametric EQ, low pass filter, phase, polarity, room gain, port tuning, custom presets and system settings.

  • Connects via Bluetooth for convenient control even when subwoofer is out of sight.
  • 3-band parametric EQ controller allows precise adjustments for frequency slope and Q factor down to the single Hz level with four different slopes, so users can improve performance by eliminating peaks, nulls and other room issues.
  • Stores 3 custom presets for movies, music and other listening experiences such as sports or gaming.
  • 2-way feedback shows updates in real time on both the app and subwoofer interface.

Acoustically Inert Ported Box Cabinet Design: Inlaid front panel display, three front-firing, high-flow bass ports, rounded edges and a curved metal grille on the PB-4000 cabinet give it a refined yet commanding look that blends visually with home theatres and high-end audio systems.

  • Double thickness 50mm (2") MDF front baffle and rigid internal bracing to support the massive drive unit and to ensure an acoustically inert environment.
  • Highly reinforced internal design and acoustic insulation eliminates all coloration or resonance from the cabinet, even when the deepest low frequencies are played at reference volume.
  • Protective, non-resonant steel mesh grille and custom elastomer feet for reducing noise artefacts within a room.
  • 2-way feedback shows updates in real time on both the app and subwoofer interface

In The News

"A sub with brute force that also performs so nimbly and even gently when the source material calls for it. I found myself so viscerally impressed by the PB-4000’s low-frequency output that I kept cranking up the volume to see which of us (me or the sub) would cry uncle first. In the end, I lost. SVS has another undeniable winner on its hands here—one that outperforms its predecessor while delivering improved aesthetics at a cheaper sticker price. I could not give it a heartier recommendation." HomeTheaterReview.com
