Those looking for the best in class audio experience will already be well aware of the virtue of having a separate subwoofer. For those looking for a best in class subwoofer to complement their home entertainment system, SVS recently unveiled its new 4000 Series of 'Earth-shaking' subwoofers – building on the company's highly-popular 16-Ultra Series.
With these being SVS products they are designed to literally showcase what audio products can do. As part of the new range there are three products on offer consisting of the SB-4000, the PB-4000, and the PC-4000. All three of the subwoofers are powered by the same Sledge STA-1200D amplifier which is listed to offer 1,200-watts of continuous (RMS) power (4,000+ watts peak) and generally speaking, the SB-4000 and the PB-4000 are largely the same sort of product with the main difference being the enclosure surrounding the main driver. As the SB-4000 is a sealed enclosure, compared to the PB-4000 which is ported – thanks to the inclusion of three 3.5-inch port holes. This means that in spite of both subwoofers employing the same 13.5-inch driver and powered by the same amplifier, the PB-4000 will be capable of dropping down to account for lower bass frequency. The PC-4000 on the other hand is designed very differently. In addition to still making use of the same amplifier, it also makes use of the same driver, with the difference being its shape and design. Instead of being more boxy, this one is designed to produce the same depth of bass but using a cylinder design along with the driver as a down-facing unit. The benefit here is that the vertical design offsets against the surface area needed, resulting in a unit which is more surface area space-saving.
In terms of price, these are designed to be low-priced high-end products with the SB-4000 subwoofer coming with a $1,499.99 price tag attached. The PB-4000 Subwoofer will set you back $1,899.99 while the PC-4000 Subwoofer is set to arrive priced at $1,799.99. All three are now available to pre-order from the company's online store, although only the the SB-4000 and the PB-4000 are set to commence shipping during December, with the PC-4000 scheduled to start shipping out to buyers from January 22, 2018. All three models are available in a Piano Gloss Black color, although the SB-4000 and the PB-4000 are also both available in a Premium Black Ash color. Last but not least, as is the case with new SVS lines of speakers, all three of these models are available to be further fine-tuned through the use of the company's corresponding Android app, available to download from the Google Play Store.
