Hey guys, I'm surprised I haven't seen this mentioned much in previous SVS deals. I've been waiting and waiting for a PB12-NSD or PB-2000 deal for a while now and started getting impatient. I finally checked Frys and realized they carry them, and they're not excluded from he 20% off coupons that are constantly sent out.

Just picked up a PB-2000 yesterday for $640 + tax.

SummerSavings20 is the phrase to get the coupon when you walk in the door.

6/21/19 EDIT: New phrase is SummertimeTech20
6/28/19 EDIT: New phrase is IndependenceDay20 - Good until 7/1/19

Didn't think to link to Frys product page since most people shopping for SVS are already familiar with them and this is in-store only. But a link would be nice to check inventory, so I'll do that.

Why does it say ported subwoofer?
Because they are ported subwoofers.

Can someone please educate me on Low Pass Filter dial knob on the back? It has various frequencies with last one all the way in right marked as LFE?
What should it be set at and what does that do? Thanks

First you need to know how much bass your tower speaker or bookshelf speaker can produce. If you look at the speaker spec, it will tell you the range, for instance 20000-80 hz. That 80hz is the lowest frequency that your existing speaker can produce. Lower than 80Hz needs to be produced by your subwoofer. Now you will set 80hz on your subwoofer, essentially asking subwoofer to ignore all frequencies above 80 and produce below that. One more important thing is crossovers frequency setting on your receiver. You will want to set only one not both.

If you have an AVR capable of auto calibration, connect the subwoofer out of AVR to LFE port on the sub.

Turn the dial on the subwoofer all the way up to Disabled/LFE which will let the AVR do the bass management and send the LFE(bass) signal to the subwoofer.

Run the auto calibration and check the specs for your speaker. Your speaker specification will tell the frequency range such as 40hz to 20kHZ. This means that your speaker is unable to produce any signal below 40Hz.

Set your AVR LFE to 40Hz which would let the AVR send 40Hz and below (bass) signal to subwoofer or the industry standard is 80Hz if your speakers aren't very good.

SVS subs are very good and go down to 18Hz which is below the audible range and will cause things in your house to shake.

Enjoy !

Ported just means the opposite of sealed. Sealed subs are more controlled but quieter, not as powerful. Ported is a typical sub with the full boom of the bass.

I was in the same boat, ended up getting the PB-2000. Probably overkill for my setup, but better to have more than I need now than realize I need to upgrade later.
