The SVS 3000 Micro, a compact active dual-driver subwoofer from SVS, is now available in the UK via karma-AV.

With a cabinet that measures 278 x 297 x 271 mm, the lifestyle subwoofer features technologies trickled down from the brand’s reference SVS 16-Ultra subwoofers, and sports opposing 8-inch drivers and an 800W RMS (2,500W peak) Sledge STA-800D2 amplifier.

The fully active dual-opposing 8-inch SVS drivers are connected in parallel to the power amplifier, which delivers identical amounts for a precisely mirrored operation. As the mechanical energy transferred to the cabinet is effectively cancelled, the enclosure becomes inert, which prevents it moving around a room. Extra thick MDF side baffles and rigid internal bracing support the active dual-driver assembly.

System tuning is handled by a 50MHz Analog Devices Audio DSP, via the SVS smartphone app. The app is the most convenient way to control volume, access multiple DSP functions and programme custom presets for music, movies and gaming, says SVS. Users can customise crossover frequencies, a three-band parametric EQ, polarity, room gain, sub identification, as well as operate standby and factory reset from their favourite listening position.

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.

The 3000 Micro enclosure is available in Piano Gloss Black or Piano Gloss White finishes. It retails for £899.
