Ohio-based speaker manufacturer SVS has launched the 1000 Pro Series, an entry-level subwoofer offering. Consisting of two models, the sealed cabinet SB-1000 Pro and ported cabinet PB-1000 Pro, the new subs feature all-new 12-inch high-excursion drivers, a 325 watts RMS/ 820-plus watts peak power Sledge STA-325D amplifier with fully discrete MOSFET output, Analog Devices DSP, and control via the SVS subwoofer control app.
“We shocked people with the upgrade in performance delivered by the 2000 Pro Series, which replaced our most popular subwoofers of all-time,” said Gary Yacoubian, SVS President and Managing Partner. “With the 1000 Pro Series, the performance bar has been set even higher and I have no doubt audio fans will be blown away by what these subwoofers deliver. Our engineers deployed the most advanced amplifier technology from our flagship subwoofers, while upgrading the drivers, the cabinets, and the user experience with our SVS smartphone app. Compared to their predecessors and the competition, 1000 Pro Series are a quantum leap forward.”
Both 1000 Pro subwoofers feature “reimagined” cabinets, along with new driver designs incorporating “a dual ferrite magnet motor assembly with long-throw parabolic surround for extreme excursion with room-pressurizing SPLs.” Amp power is regulated by a 50 MHz Analog Devices Audio DSP with 56-bit filtering, “the most sophisticated DSP engine available in a home subwoofer,” according to SVS.
The SVS subwoofer control app lets 1000 Pro Series owners wirelessly adjust volume, crossover, and polarity settings, as well as access EQ presets from their smartphone. Custom presets can also be created and stored using the app’s three-band parametric EQ adjustment.
SVS specs frequency response for the PB-1000 Pro ported model at 17Hz to 260Hz +/-3dB (standard mode) and 19Hz to 260Hz +/-3dB (sealed mode). Frequency response specs for the SB-1000 Pro sealed model are 20Hz to 270Hz +/-3 dB.
Both models are available now at svsound.com and from A/V specialist retailers.
