SVS has announced a family of new subwoofers, the 2000 Pro Series. All three models include a new 12-inch high-excursion SVS driver and a 550 watts RMS, 1,500+ watts peak power Sledge STA-550D amplifier with discrete MOSFET output.
SVS says the subs come armed with tech gleaned from the 16-Ultra models, and the new entries are comprised of the SB-2000 Pro sealed cabinet (Black Ash – $799.99, Piano Gloss Black – $899.9), PB-2000 Pro ported cabinet (Premium Black Ash – $899.99), and PC-2000 Pro ported cylinder cabinet (Piano Gloss Black Top Cap – $949.99). All are claimed to produce “deep and thunderous” low frequency output below the threshold of human hearing.
The in-built Sledge STA-550D amplifier has a high current output of discrete MOSFETs with Class D efficiency, with a claimed 550 watts RMS and 1,500+ watts peak power, and “vanishingly” low distortion, while achieving reference levels and an accurate frequency response. SVS deploys a 50 MHz Analog Devices Audio DSP with 56-bit filtering for what the company asserts is the most “sophisticated” DSP engine ever used in a home subwoofer.
The proprietary incorporated design includes a dual ferrite magnet motor assembly with a long-throw parabolic surround for “extreme excursion” with room-pressurizing SPLs. A lightweight aluminum vented cone with composite fiber dustcap promises to move large quantities of air to create a tactile sonic energy without losing control, and accurate response at high listening levels. SVS’s app for Apple, Android and Amazon devices allows for control and custom preset manipulation, optimized tuning for varying music and movie content, and you can also adjust crossover frequencies, a three-band parametric EQ, polarity and room gain from the sweet spot.

“Our engineers obsessed over making the 2000 Pro Series a truly breakout product line since we’re replacing the most popular subwoofer models in our company’s history,” said Gary Yacoubian, SVS President and Managing Partner. “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.”
