svs sb-1000 review

A medium-sized room would benefit from mobile accessories and a portable sound system. Unfortunately, most portable sound systems cannot serve a room of that size adequately. Enter the SVS SB-1000, a subwoofer with portable size and a powerful sound machine. Our experts have done tests that led to this SVS SB-1000 review.




The SVS SB-1000 has a beautiful appearance that matches all types of interior. It is present in two finishes: piano white finish and premium cash wood.

Its footprints are minimal. SVS SB-1000 subwoofer has a portable size that can be fixed in any corner of the room. It has a 1” MDF front panel with other panels being 75” MDF.

It has round edges with 13-inch slides, which aid its durability. The cabinets of the subwoofer were designed with damping materials of two inches that are fixed stapled.

SVS SB-1000 Features

The SVS SB-1000 has an optimal cutoff frequency of 90 hertz. It has a size of 13.5 x 13 x 13.6 inches with a crossover ranging between 24 to 260 hertz.

The SVS SB-1000 subwoofer has 720 Watts peak power and 300 Watts RMS, while its front-firing driver is 12 inches in size.

It has detachable grill units with an audio amplifier output power of 300 Watts. Here are a few other features our experts thought useful in the SVS SB-1000 review.

Sound Quality

The SVS SB-1000 has a solid sound quality with good intensity and sound ferociousness, especially when playing rock and metal music. The SVS SB-1000 is one of the high-rated budget subwoofers that highlights low range in music and does not make you miss the beats in low range. Also, you will enjoy every bit of bass with high point depth behind the bass.


The SVS SB-1000 is a credible subwoofer that takes a noticeable place among other subwoofers in its price range (best small subwoofers under 500). However, our experts have taken up the task of putting this SVS SB-1000 subwoofer into a performance test [1].

The SVS SB-1000 can be well guaranteed for adequacy in its performance when in use. The SB-1000 subwoofer is user-friendly and can be connected to other speakers. In a case where you decide to use two of these subwoofers, you could put one in two different corners of the room.

SVS SB-1000 Setup

Operating and setting up your SVS SB-1000 subwoofer could require some technical know-how like other top-performing speaker subwoofers under 200 here.

To power up your SB-1000 subwoofer, you should warm up its inside components for approximately five minutes especially after purchase. After that, you should connect the subwoofer directly through the LFE input to the receiver’s AVR.

You do not have to make any adjustments whether you are opting for two channels or surrounding sound listening.

After your receiver is connected, you should set the face control off your subwoofer to zero and then turn the volume up about 50 percent to test if all is well equalized.


The SVS SB-1000 subwoofer is a portable subwoofer, which puts it at a range more affordable than other options like the best 12-inch subwoofers. There is no underestimating it though, as the subwoofer still packs a lot of functions for its price.

SVS SB-1000 Review Conclusion

The SVS SB-1000 is a portable subwoofer that offers many functions such as good sound quality, good design, accurate sound function, awesome volume settings, portability, and durability. All these, as we found during our SVS SB-1000 review, while still being at an affordable price range.
