The SB-3000 features an all-new first ever 13-inch high-excursion SVS driver and 800 watts RMS, 2,500 watts peak power Sledge amplifier with fully discrete MOSFET output. Its deep and thunderous low frequency output with revealing clarity and flawless tonal accuracy delights hardcore audiophiles and home theater fans alike. Measuring just over 15-inches cubed, the SB-3000 outperforms much larger subwoofers and takes command of a room sonically without taking over visually.

Room-Shaking Power. Subterranean Extension. Uncompromising Sound Quality

Featuring technology from the SVS 16-Ultra Series and 4000 Series, winners of nearly every industry and media award as the top subwoofers worldwide, the SB-3000 unleashes breathtaking output and extreme low frequency extension with pinpoint control and accuracy. The newest sealed cabinet SVS model combines the most sophisticated SVS subwoofer technology ever developed with trailblazing innovations to set a new standard for subwoofer performance based on price and cabinet size.

All New First Ever 13-inch High-Excursion SVS Driver – Iron Fist Inside a Velvet Glove

Completely new 13-inch SVS driver delivers punishing levels of low frequency output, while maintaining crisp speed in transients by stopping and starting on a dime with pinpoint precision. An aluminum vented cone with exceptional stiffness to mass ratio and a proprietary injection molded extreme-excursion surround ensure flawless pistonic motion for pinpoint control and accuracy.

Flat edge wound split-wind voice coil within the motor assembly provides effortless, on-demand power at the highest excursion levels, while reducing mass and improving overall driver efficiency. The result is room-shaking output with amazingly precise response when the music, movie or other content demands it most.

Dual ferrite magnet motor assembly weighing nearly 25lbs generates massive amounts of current to produce extreme driver excursion with precise control for the deepest, most accurate and authoritative bass possible from a 13-inch driver.

Lightweight and rigid aluminum vented cone with composite fiber dustcap generates massive output with pinpoint accurate frequency response.

Long-throw parabolic surround and proprietary injection molded gasket ensure longevity and allow extreme excursion for room-energizing bass.

Sledge STA-800D2 Amplifier – Massive Power with Precise Control.

Conservatively rated at 800 watts RMS, 2,500 watts peak power, the Sledge STA-800D2 amplifier maximizes the full potential of the 13-inch driver with effortless power and absolute control. The innovative design combines the efficiency of a Class D amplifier with the ability to move colossal amounts of current through the fully discrete MOSFETs for outstanding real-world subwoofer performance at all drive levels.

High Current Output of Fully Discrete MOSFETs with Efficiency of Class D Amplifier allows the Sledge STA-800D2 amplifier to move massive amounts of current through the fully discrete MOSFETs enabling immense output with surgical precision.

Sophisticated 50Mhz High Resolution Analog Devices Audio DSP is the most advanced digital processor ever used in a subwoofer and maintains pinpoint accuracy and pristine sound quality through advanced in-room tuning, optimized frequency response curves, powerful DSP controls and more.

SB-3000 Smartphone App – Easiest Way Ever to Manage Subwoofer DSP and Control

3000 Series subwoofer app is the most convenient way ever to control volume, access multiple DSP functions and program custom presets for one-touch tuning optimized for music, movies, gaming, and more. Adjust crossover frequencies, a three-band parametric EQ, polarity, room gain and more, all from your favorite seat.

The SVS subwoofer app also allows advanced customization so you can name your subwoofer for easy preset switching, choose the subwoofer standby mode and reset the subwoofer to factory settings. 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.

3 custom presets can be saved for movies, music and more so you have one-touch tuning optimized for your listening preferences.

2-way feedback shows updates in real time on both the app and rear panel subwoofer interface.

Connects via Bluetooth for convenient control even when subwoofer is out of sight.

3-band parametric EQ controller allows precise adjustments for frequency slope and Q factor down to the single Hz level with four different slopes, so users can improve performance by eliminating peaks, nulls and other room issues.

New Rear Panel Intelligent Control Interface (ICI)

Designed specifically for the 3000 Series Subwoofers, the first ever SVS Intelligent Control Interface (ICI) on the rear panel of the 3000 Series cabinets provide control options for the subwoofer’s most critical functions. Adjustments can be made for volume based on listening preferences and content to achieve full and balanced bass response.

Other features of the ICI include a low pass filter to ensure smooth sonic transitions and seamless blending with loudspeakers and phase control to shift timing of subwoofer output to align with main speakers or additional subwoofers.

Acoustically Inert and Rigidly Braced Sealed Cabinet Design

Double-thick MDF front baffle and extensive internal bracing in the acoustically optimized SB-3000 Series cabinet create a resonance-free environment that serves as a blank canvas for uncompromised subwoofer performance. Acoustic insulation eliminates all coloration or resonance from the cabinet, even when the deepest low frequencies are played at reference volume. Includes protective, non-resonant steel mesh grille and custom elastomer feet for reducing noise artifacts within a room.

    I’ve bought this subwoofer from premium sound and it arrived quickly.

    This is one of the best hi end subwoofers in the world because it is far above an entry level point for real beginners. It’s ideal for medium to large size rooms and extremely overpowering for small rooms. This is an expensive hobby and how many could afford over a thousand pounds or let alone be willing to spend it on sound quality?

    Neighbours hate me. A neighbour used her shoe to knock my door during a mini home birthday party. She angrily stated: “everything is vibrating in my flat and my son was terrified and couldn’t go to sleep”. Even with that, the sb3k wasn’t at its peak. It is brutally impactful for music and films.

    This thing will literally rattle your neighbours walls, living & bedrooms even worst for people living in UK terrace-like homes with wooden floorings. And I dare you operate it at its full capacity. I had to place piece of tissue under wall clock as walls even tv mounted on wall and cabinets, washing machine all bowed in submission (rattling) to the sheer impactfulness of this beast. To test this sub ry YouTube bass test songs and select the one with yellow colour to feel rumble from this sub!!!!!

    I’m using the SVS soundpath feet to reduce vibration but these feet can only handle so much. The sub itself doesn’t shake at all, it is the sound spewing out that pressurises everything. I took paracetamol due to headache from the subwoofer pressurising the medium size living room during the mini gathering.

    Partner hates the sb3k and called it a waste of cash she prefers my previous sb1000 at 300 watts (not the 1k pro that has 325 watts). My son often begs me to reduce volume.

    One thing you should take into account when judging this sub or any other subs in terms of music or films is that not all music/ films are recorded equally. Unless re-mastered into the 21st century, why would anyone expect motown recordings and films of the 50s to be of the same sound quality of 21st century music and films? It is like wanting James Brown music to have the same sound quality of Justin Bieber’s. YouTube also suppresses music sound quality for nonsubscription app users.

    In terms of subs this is regarded as compact because there are subs that are gigantic in size than this which are preferred by audiophiles. To be very honest, this sub isn’t big yet it isn’t too small too and it’s ideal for reasonable lovers of bass who want to get that extra pounding. If cash is tight even the sb1000 or sb2000 pro would be more than ok.

    I would recommend this particular sb3000 to anyone wanting more bass in room where space isn’t enough. Thanks also to premium sound.
