The latest SVS sealed cabinet SB-1000 Pro and ported cabinet PB-1000 Pro subwoofers are now available in the UK, through Karma-AV. Both feature 12-inch high-excursion drivers, Sledge STA-325D amplifiers, Analog Devices DSP and redesigned cabinets.

“We shocked people with the upgrade in performance delivered by the 2000 Pro Series, which replaced our most popular subwoofers of all-time.,” says SVS President and Managing Partner Gary Yacoubian. “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, the 1000 Pro Series are a quantum leap forward.”

Offering 325 watts RMS and 820+ watts peak power, the Sledge STA-325D amplifier is designed to provide enormous on-demand power to the driver, while maintaining precise driver control.

The 50 MHz Analog Devices Audio DSP has 56-bit filtering and claims to be the most sophisticated DSP engine available in a home subwoofer. It provides advanced in-room tuning, optimised frequency response curves and DSP management capabilities.

SVS 1000 Pro Series Range

Tuning and control comes via the SVS smartphone app. Integrators can use the SVS smartphone app to manage volume, crossover frequencies, multiple DSP functions, custom preset programming and selection, a three-band parametric EQ, polarity and room gain. 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 drivers employed in the SVS 1000 Pro subwoofers are a completely new design and feature a dual-ferrite magnet motor assembly with long-throw parabolic surround for extreme excursion and room-pressurising SPLs, and a lightweight yet rigid aluminium vented cone.

The 1000 Pro Series designs are built with an extra thick MDF front baffle and rigid internal bracing to support the drive unit and to ensure an acoustically inert environment. This removes colouration or resonance from the cabinet when when the deepest low frequencies are played at high volume.

The SB-1000 Pro Black Ash sells for £549; the SB-1000 Pro Black/White Gloss and the PB-1000 Pro Black Ash retail for £639.
