Designed for both retrofit and new construction projects, the new SVS 3000 In-Wall subwoofer system allows integrators to deliver a low frequency performance that’s comparable with traditional cabinet design.

The 3000 In-Wall system utilises twin custom designed high-excursion 9-inch SVS drivers in a sealed aluminium/MDF flush-fitting cabinet, powered by an outboard version of the company’s Sledge amplifier (as used in its 3000 Micro subwoofer).

Rated at 800W (2,500-watt peak), this class D amp couples high-current discrete MOSFETs with an Analog Devices DSP.

Equipped with 56-bit filtering, this 50MHz is used to shape the audio response through DSP controls and presets available on the SVS subwoofer DSP smartphone app.

Using the app via Bluetooth, installers can adjust control volume, crossover frequencies, and set the three-band parametric EQ, as well as polarity and room gain, from the ideal listening position. Bi-directional feedback shows the adjustments in real time on both the app and the amplifier’s front panel interface.

This 2U rack mount amp can be configured to output all 800 watts to a single subwoofer or to split 400 watts each way to a dual subwoofer array.

When it comes to installation, a template is provided for the cut-out of the mounting hole, and the sealed-box design allows for simple and fast installation using dog-leg clamps. When installation is up against a stud, the enclosure uses screw holes for direct mounting to the stud. An optional pre-construction kit with template is available for new construction.

“The 3000 In-Wall subwoofer from SVS has been in development for quite some time because our engineers were never content with anything less than reference performance for this important category,” said Gary Yacoubian, SVS President. “An architectural subwoofer that delivers truly breathtaking output with astonishing depth and accuracy, plus sophisticated tuning and control is a first. No more compromises for clients who want reference quality bass without taking up floorspace. Plus, it’s easy to install in any room and provides unmatched versatility.”

The SVS 3000 In-Wall retails for £2,199, with a double system priced at £3,199. Distribution is via Karma AV.
