Features

What about SVS PB-1000 specs, the model plays below the limits of human hearing, up to 19 Hz and lower. Given the deep bass extension and loud SPL sound without sacrificing musicality, the PB-1000 challenges expectations at every level. The front-firing driver is equipped with two high-quality ferrite magnets and FEA-optimized internal engine technology that provides extreme deflection for high power with extremely low distortion. The performance of 10-inch drivers competes with 12 and 15-inch drivers in much larger cabinets. Averaged for a 300 W RMS average power and a peak power of 700 watts, the Sledge amplifier provides precise control of the subwoofer at all drive levels, so you can switch to reference volumes and maintain the accuracy of the frequency response.
