Thread Details

The NFM in Kansas City, Kansas has the SVS SB-2000 for $599. I believe all SVS subs were on sale as the PC-2000 was also on sale for $599.

Just an FYI... The pb-2000 is 500 watts RMS.. this is the real and actual # , it does NOT have 1100 watts.....We don't want to mislead people about the pb-2000.... It is a very good sub!

As we both know, PEAK watts means nothing!!!! RMS wattage is your go to measure for what the amp is actually going to put out.... peak wattage is a nice marketing term that is thrown around to sell units.... The pb-2000 uses every bit of that SLEDGE amp, but is uses 500 watts! ALSO, keep in mind, for that same pb-2000 you own, if it was going to give you 3more DB of output then that amp would need to put out 1000 watts RMS, so double. That is a basic formula for all subs out there...... double the amp and you will get 3 more DB's (of course that is assuming the driver can handle the extra power)

If they have the PC-2000 for $599, that's a heck of a deal. That's $200 off retail. Anybody wanting a great sub should jump on that.

Odd that the nearly identical performing PC-2000 and PB-2000 would be priced so drastically different. Both retail for $800. The SB and PB-1000 prices are msrp, so nothing different there. $1300 is $300 off retail on the S13-Ultra, however.

The only "real" deal here is the PC-2000... The reason why It is less then the pb-2000 is that it costs SVS a lot less to manufacture then the pb-2000 due to the cabinet... The Tube is just pressed card board, very little cost in that. SVS has even confirmed this with me... Thus there is a higher profit margin on the pc-2000 over the pb-2000.. So the retailers cost is less on it to begin with... The sb-13 is an ok deal.... I have seen that price at a few retailers in general for a while now... the real star of the show is the pb-13ultra, wonder if they carry that? It is a massive sub thou, about 160 lbs...

Also, I have had both the pc-2000 and the pb-2000 in my home.... Honestly, if you have the floor space go with the pb-2000... I just has a bit more output then the pc-2000 (verified with a high end SPL meter). However, at the $599 price of the pc-2000, that would be the way to go for that amount of savings!! Also, don't think for a moment the pc-2000 is small, it is large like a medium hot water heater. Pictures of it do not really depict just how large it actually is in person... As always, SVS customer service is up there with the best of them as is their warranty!

I know the PC-2000 is cheaper to produce, but they both retail for $800. PC-2000 does have the Soundpath Isolation feet installed, which is an added bonus. Both the PC-2000 and PB-2000 are nearly identical in sound, with the PC-2000 having a slight advantage in extension over the PB-2000. I've never seen the SB13-Ultra at $1300. Even their outlet models don't go that cheap.

Take my word for it, as I have had both the pc-2000 and the pb-2000 here at my house at the same time.... they are both great subs!! No question... But having said that, the pb-2000 is a bit better, it puts out a bit more DB then the pc-2000.. Upon speaking directly to Ed Mullen at SVS, he informed me that this is correct, due to the internal size, port placement and material of the enclosure, that the pb-2000 will have a slight edge over the pc-2000.
When I did my objective testing with a high end spl meter, the pb-2000 consistently put out 1 db more! 1db may not be that much more to some, but I could detect it as being a bit more pronounced and impactful then the pc-2000..

Again, having said all this, if I had to buy one with these prices, I would def SAVE the $200 and buy the pc-2000 ...$200 bucks is a big difference in my opinion..... if they were the same price then I would go with the pb-2000

I don't have to take your word for it, as I have the PC-2000 and used to have the PB-2000. Your room, placement, all sorts of variables can alter the sound output. Even the slightest movement of the sub a few inches one way or another. 1dB difference in output is irrelevant. That's not even something you could notice without a SPL meter. Now the PC-2000 does have more extension than the PB-2000. The roll off below 20Hz for the PC-2000 is much more gradual than the PB-2000. I personally prefer the cylinder subs from SVS over the box versions.Wink

While I do not disagree with you as far as room placement, etc.. I do with respect to being able to detect 1db gain with a quality SPL meter.... you can absolutely detect it.. Have you ever used one? If so, you can detect it and to my ear the pb-2000 was better.. Now, that was to my ear and that is subjective, however, after owning 4 different SVS subs over the years , I can tell! Again, having said all this, $200 less on the PC-2000, I would be buying that, but I still stick to that if the prices were the same, the pb-2000 edges out the pc... Look, this was confirmed to me by ED Mullen, he is the head of product development (among other things!) as SVS... So this is not something I say lightly unless I observed it with an objective test and ED Mullen also stated to me over the phone that yes, the pb-2000 has a slight advantage over the pc due to the ported box config on it and it has SLIGHTLY MORE VOLUME IN THAT BOX!!... If one of the top guys who had a hand in it's design says so, who are we to question?
