Product Description

The SVS PC-2000 Subwoofer is just a little bit different. Its form factor has been reimagined, with a modern style that makes most subwoofers look like the boring boxes they are. Fortunately the step up in style has not necessitated a drop off in performance. In fact, you will find the SVS PC-2000 has all the slam, speed and depth (try 16Hz) that SVS is famous for.

Overview

SVS was founded in 1998 by a group of audio enthusiasts seeking to develop a better alternative to the under-performing and over-priced subwoofers of that time and refute the notion that exceptional sound quality has to be ridiculously expensive. The SVS design approach involves a fusion of leading edge technology, precision engineering, exhaustive lab and real-world testing, as well as, a deep personal passion for audio excellence, all brought to life by their team of acoustic engineers. By using the highest quality components, the SVS team has developed a line of high-performance, high-value audio subwoofers that bring music and movies to life with stunning realism. The SVS PC-2000 steps up the amplifier to the bigger and beefier 500 Watt amp, keeps the woofer size to a 300mm monster and uses a rear ported enclosure.

A Closer Look

Look at the Audio Trends range of subwoofers and you'll see we love bass - especially deep, accurate bass that rocks the house and adds intense realism to our movies, music, and video games. But that kind of low-end performance can cost heaps unless you have deep pockets. So we're always on the lookout for subs that deliver the kind of performance we crave at a price we can afford. The SVS PC-2000 answers the call. Yes, it is more expensive than the '1000 series but read on to see why and why it is the most popular model under $2000. 

The new PC-2000 features an all-new 500 watt amplifier and a very capable 12” driver in a refreshed and modern style. It’s better looking and better performing even than its revered predecessors leveraging SVS’s award winning 2000-series technology. True to its iconic design heritage, this vertical powered cylinder leverages its height to sonic advantage. With a mere 422mm diameter footprint, it delivers unmatched bass performance per square inch of floor space giving you the sheer power of a ported subwoofer in a footprint nothing matches. Your music and movies will enjoy depth and dynamics like never before.

Upgraded with Sledge STA-500D amplifier technology and down-firing 12” driver from the acclaimed 2000 Series, its deep bass extension and mid-bass slam are outstanding. Music and Blu-ray concerts are rendered with subtlety and nuance, and a tight, fast and musical bass line. Action and sci-fi movies will take on new levels of slam and impact, and the subterranean 16 Hz extension delivers spine-tingling lows and white-knuckle tension on dramas, thrillers and horror flicks. And thanks to the integrated SoundPath Isolation System, elastomer feet that decouple and isolate the subwoofer from the floor, that bass sound is cleaner, tighter sounding and less likely to disturb neighbours and housemates.

300mm High Output Woofer: The down-firing 300mm (12") high output woofer pumps out deep and powerful bass with low distortion, for smooth and accurate performance on music and movies soundtracks. The woofer features a lightweight cone for enhanced sensitivity and transient response, a long-throw suspension for high output at low frequencies, plus a rubber surround for durability and long-life. It also incorporates FEA-optimised motor technology for low distortion, high-power voice coil for excellent thermal management, and vented pole piece for greater cooling.

STA-500D Sledge Amplifier: The PC-2000 employs a Sledge STA-500D amplifier with efficient and cool-running Class D topology. The amplifier is conservatively rated at 500 Watts RMS and 1,100 Watts Peak and features a highly advanced DSP processor offering unmatched control over the subwoofer at all volume levels, for distortion free bass. 

Variable Controls: The PC-2000 subwoofer has simple and straightforward control options that make integrating the subwoofer into your listening environment an easy task. The control knobs are actually digital actuators for precise and noise-free adjustment.

  • Volume Control: The Volume Control (Min/Max) affects how loud the subwoofer plays. It should be adjusted to match the output level of your loudspeakers.
  • Low Pass Crossover: This Low Pass Crossover affects the upper frequency limit of the powered sub. The control range is 50-160Hz, along with a "LFE" (disabled) setting. The slope of the low pass crossover is 12 dB/octave. For connection to a home theatre receiver, the low pass should be set to "LFE" (disabled). For stereo receiver, it should be adjusted to blend with the natural roll-off frequency of your loudspeakers.
  • Phase Control: The Phase Control (0-180°) delays the signal being processed through the amplifier. It should be adjusted to obtain the most coherent and stable soundstage and transition between your loudspeakers and the powered subwoofer.

Placement Options: Although subwoofers can be placed at the side or back of your room, it is best if possible to place it at the front so it will 'blend' with your front and centre loudspeakers.

  • Corner Placement: Corner placement will accommodate most rooms and will reduce the chances for encountering a null (an acoustic cancellation in the bass response) at the listening position. If your AV receiver equalises the subwoofer channel during auto-set-up, corner placement will often provide the best overall performance.
  • Other Placement Options: If corner placement sounds excessively boomy, then try moving the subwoofer to other available locations along the front stage, listening for the best balance of output and a smooth accurate response. Important! Always redo the auto-set-up of your home theatre receiver after moving the subwoofer to a different location to ensure the acoustic distance and calibration level are set correctly.
  • Dual Subs: To maximise the bass output and impact of your home theatre, two PC-2000s can be paired; one on either side of your room. This is no sales push! It really works.

Auto/Standby & On Switch: If this switch is set to "Auto/Standby", it will automatically turn-on the powered subwoofer in the presence of an audio signal. If no signal is present for a period of several minutes, the powered subwoofer will enter "Standby" mode, where power consumption will be less than 0.5 Watts. If this switch is set to "On", the amplifier will remain on continuously and will not enter "Standby" mode.

"I had to watch it again and again to make sure I wasn't just fooling myself. It really is that good … Solid performance, striking design, exceptional build quality and all at a price point that is remarkable for what you get." Home Theater Forum

Our Take

The PC-2000 marks a new direction in subwoofer design. Eschewing boring black boxes, SVS have chosen instead to go vertical and cylindrical. Plants and cats are going to love this subwoofer. Despite it looking like you need a bust of Beethoven sitting on top the PC-2000 delivers fast, tight, and accurate bass. It will dramatically improve your system's sound stage to the point where a blindfolded listener could be excused for thinking that you're running a system of hundreds of Watts (RMS) through huge floor-standing speakers. An innovative driver and amplifier, high-end materials and revised tuning lets the PC-2000 Subwoofer achieve levels of articulation, musicality, dynamics and fathomless extension that many other subwoofers struggle to equal. The subwoofer’s compact footprint and elegant appearance make it easy to set-up in any room. It’s also one of the best subwoofers for 5.1 home theatre and other surround sound systems. Put simply, it’s one of the best performing ported subwoofers at the price-point. It definitely delivers 'bang for the buck' making it a wise choice for both those new to subwoofers or upgrading with a definite limit on investment.
