We’ve seen a lot of big, boxy subwoofers over the years. However, the SVS PC-2000 is slightly different — because it’s slightly curved.
Measuring 34 inches tall and 16.5 inches in diameter, SVS says that the PC-2000 uses its height to deliver powerful bass, even with such a small footprint.
It has a 12-inch down-firing 2000-series driver, which includes two ferrite magnets and an FEA-optimized motor. It’s also the first SVS subwoofer to come standard with the SoundPath Isolation System. It even has a reinforced Nomex spider for driver control and elastomer feet to keep the PC-2000 off the floor.
Rated at 500 watts RMS continuous power and 1100 watts peak dynamic, the Sledge STA-500D DSP amplifier inside has a DSP with filters and volume, gain, and phase controls, all so you can fine-tune the sub’s performance. Rated at 17-270Hz (+/- 3dB), the PC-2000 also has a stereo line-level RCA input and 80Hz high-pass filtered output connections, continuously variable volume and phase controls, and a rear-firing 4-inch high-flow port.
Another nifty perk is that the PC-2000 has interchangeable black ash or piano gloss top caps, so you can match the sub to your room’s decor.
“The cylinder subwoofer is an icon of our design heritage. The PC-2000 integrates our best technology and engineering resources, along with style upgrades, to make it appealing to contemporary audio and home theater enthusiasts,” said Gary Yacoubian, SVS president. “It’s an absolute beast of a performer and ideal for those who want outstanding deep bass effects and mid-bass slam, without the huge footprint.”
SVS is selling the PC-2000 with a black ash top cap for $799.99. The version with the piano gloss top cap is priced at $849.99.
