About The SVS PB-3000 Subwoofer

The SVS PB-3000 Subwoofer unleashes breathtaking output and extreme low frequency extension with pinpoint control and accuracy. Its reference subwoofer performance hits new lows and is an ideal solution in both audiophile music systems or dedicated home theatre installations. Although there are a few other good subwoofer models, the guys and girls at SVS have certainly carved out a notch as the brand to chase.

You've heard the phrase "good, better, best" and SVS certainly cover all price points when it comes to their core product line - subwoofers. Even their entry-level subwoofers are streets ahead of many brands available to you. And of course the SVS 16 series is simply amazing for those who demand the best no matter what the price. Enter the SVS PB-3000 and SB-3000 models. These models perfectly fit the bill for those who want a 'better' subwoofer, but aren't quite prepared to dig any deeper into the back pocket. Their relatively compact size masks the reference performance that gets delivered at this price-point. So, you may feel that this isn't bargain-priced, but what we are trying to tell you is that these models deliver performance that costs masive amounts more in other brands! How so? Featuring technology from the SVS 16-Ultra Series and 4000 Series - winners of nearly every industry and media award as the top subwoofers worldwide - the 3000 series unleashes breathtaking output and extreme low frequency extension with pinpoint control and accuracy. According to SVS, the newest dual-front-port cabinet SVS model (PB-3000) combines the most sophisticated SVS subwoofer technology ever developed and includes trailblazing innovations that set a new standard for subwoofer performance based on price and cabinet size. Just to clarify a couple of details. The differences between the PB-3000 (featured on this page) and the SB-3000 are (1) the dual front ports compared with the sealed enclosure on the SB-3000 which means that (2) the PB-3000 is a considerably bigger enclosure. Front ports mean that you can place the subwoofer closer to a wall and minimise or even eliminate any "chuffing" at high volumes. Let's take a closer look at the key elements.

High Excursion Driver

Completely new and proprietary 13" SVS driver delivers punishing levels of low frequency output, while maintaining crisp speed in transients by stopping and starting on a dime with pinpoint precision. An aluminium vented cone with exceptional stiffness to mass ratio and a proprietary injection moulded extreme-excursion surround ensure flawless pistonic motion for pinpoint control and accuracy.

SVS' first flat edge wound split-wind voice coil provides maximum magnetics at high excursion while reducing mass and improving overall driver efficiency. This is built around a premium grade 50mm (2”) polyimide impregnated fiberglass former for maximum thermal conductivity. The two massive, dedicated toroidal ferrite magnets generate unparalleled levels of magnetic force to drive the highest levels of excursion, SPL, and start/go power for the deepest and most authoritative bass possible. Included is a all-new high density FEA-optimised cast aluminium basket provides unequalled levels of rigidity, tensile strength, and energy transference available from a subwoofer.

  • Dual ferrite magnet motor assembly weighing nearly 25lbs generates massive amounts of current to produce extreme driver excursion with precise control for the deepest, most accurate and authoritative bass possible from a 13-inch driver
  • Lightweight and rigid aluminium vented cone with composite fibre dust cap generates massive output with pinpoint accurate frequency response
  • Long-Throw Parabolic Surround and proprietary injection moulded gasket ensure longevity and allow extreme excursion for room-energizing bass
  • Four balanced 24-strand silver plated Litz wire high temperature leads woven through the 165mm (6.5”) 2-ply Nomex composite spider provide a pristine electrical connection from the amplifier to the voice coil
  • Precision machined motor elements and narrow tolerance suspension parts produce unmatched linearity at full excursion for exceptionally tight and fast output, even at reference volumes
  • Extreme oversized low carbon vented 1008 steel U-yoke and top plate provide superior cooling and improved magnetics for maximum performance and efficiency
  • 6063 Aluminium shorting sleeve reduces gap induction and distortion, enhances thermal conductivity, and improve magnetic linearity
  • Proprietary injection moulded gasket and SBR extreme-excursion surround maintains ideal pistonic motion for pinpoint accuracy and control

High Powered Amplifier

Conservatively rated at 800 Watts RMS, (2,500+ Watts peak power) the Sledge STA-800D2 amplifier maximises the full potential of the 13" driver with effortless power and absolute control. The innovative design combines the efficiency of a Class D amplifier with the ability to move colossal amounts of current through the fully discrete MOSFETs enabling immense output with surgical precision for outstanding real-world subwoofer performance at all drive levels. These massive 25 Amp 600 Volt MOSFET’s result in lower EMI and the highest efficiency while providing effortless power to produce SPLs and low frequency output with pristine clarity well beyond reference listening levels.

You have probably heard of the US company Analog Devices who have been at the forefront of digital processing for decades. As you have probably figured, these subs employ a high resolution 50MHz Analog Devices Audio DSP with double precision 56bit filtering. Thi is the most advanced subwoofer processor available for perfect audio reproduction. Naturally there is user adjustable low pass, phase, polarity and room gain compensation with three parametric EQs for absolute best alignment with your speakers and to optimise performance in any room. Basically the Sledge Amp provides massive power with precise control.

Intelligent Control And Design: Designed specifically for the 3000 Series Subwoofers, the first ever SVS Intelligent Control Interface (ICI) on the rear panel of the 3000 Series cabinets provide control options for the subwoofer’s most critical functions. Adjustments can be made for volume based on listening preferences and content to achieve full and balanced bass response. Other features of the ICI include a low pass filter to ensure smooth sonic transitions and seamless blending with loudspeakers and phase control to shift timing of subwoofer output to align with main speakers or additional subwoofers.

Acoustically Inert and Rigidly Braced Sealed Cabinet Design: Double-thick MDF front baffle and extensive internal bracing in the acoustically optimized PB-3000 Series cabinet create a resonance-free environment that serves as a blank canvas for uncompromised subwoofer performance. Acoustic insulation eliminates all coloration or resonance from the cabinet, even when the deepest low frequencies are played at reference volume. Includes protective, non-resonant steel mesh grille and custom elastomer feet for reducing noise artefacts within a room.

First Ever SVS Dual Port Cabinet Design – Maximised Airflow without Distortion: PB-3000 is the first SVS subwoofer optimized with a dual port cabinet design for maximizing airflow, driver motion and amplifier power, while eliminating potential for port turbulence. Foam port plugs come standard with the PB-3000 and allow for variable port tuning. Each response curve for the two port tuning modes (standard and sealed), is fully configured to the respective mode to achieve balanced and accurate low frequency response.

PB-3000 Smartphone App: The most powerful and flexible Bluetooth controlled subwoofer DSP app, works with both iOS and Android operating systems. It is also the most convenient way ever to control volume, access multiple DSP functions and to program each of the three custom presets for one-touch tuning optimised for music, movies, gaming, and more from your favourite seat. Adjust crossover frequencies, a three-band parametric EQ, polarity, room gain and more, all from your favourite seat. The SVS subwoofer app also allows advanced customization so you 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. There is also single tap adjustment for controlling variable port tuning with standard, extended and sealed modes as well as an easy-to-follow tutorial that provides clear and simple guidance for all functions.

Problems With Vibrations From Your Subwoofer? Try This: To isolate your subwoofer from the floor and provide improved bass performance while reducing floor and wall vibrations, noise artefacts and complaints from neighbours or roommates, choose the SVS SoundPath Subwoofer Isolation System (4 Pack).


Unheard of reference subwoofer performance from a front-ported size differentiate the PB-3000 subwoofer from almost anything else available at the price. A sophisticated and powerful 800 Watts RMS Sledge STA-800D2 DSP amplifier, innovative new 13" high-excursion SVS driver and an optimised sealed cabinet design take control of your room with deeper bass and higher output levels than what is typically possible from a relatively compact subwoofer. The PB-3000 is an ideal solution for reference bass in audiophile music systems or home theatre installations, and at this price it’s a cut above the rest.
