SVS PB-1000 vs Klipsch R-115SW

SVS PB-1000 review

SVS PB-1000 vs Klipsch R-115SW has 400 W nominal output power, and another sub – 300 watts. I would call the SB-1000 subwoofer universal simply based on its specification. It is equipped with a 10-inch speaker. The built-in amplifier SVS Sledge STA-300D operates in class D and provides more than 700 watts of maximum output power.

The volume, frequency, and phase controls look and function quite analogously. The SB-1000 has a full set of inputs: stereo high- and low-level, LFE, combined with low-level. The presence of high-level inputs will be convenient when connected to an amplifier with two pairs of terminals.

Klipsch R-115SW review

Klipsch R-115SW has 15-inch driver size vs SVS PB-1000 has only 10”. The Klipsch R-115SW is a powerful active subwoofer that allows 400 watts power. It made in the type of bass reflex with a front speaker. The phase inverter port is located on the front panel.

This subwoofer is fantastic and makes a real earthquake but pure sound quality. The well-built subwoofer box minimizes noise and gives clear sound at low frequencies. The design of the subwoofer is very stylish and modern, which is well suited for home decor.
