SVS PB-2000 vs Klipsch R-115SW

SVS PB-2000 review

SVS PB-2000 is an excellent choice for home theater in rooms of 25-35 sq m. SVS PB-2000 vs Klipsch R-115SW has 500 W power, Klipsch has a little less – 400 watts. The device allows the user to configure listening options for themselves. For this, the manufacturer presented the opportunity to separately adjust the crossover frequency and set the desired phase.

The PB-2000 looks clean and modern. Its beautiful radius angles, high-quality black grain finish, and metal grill fit any interior. With its modest size and weight of 66 pounds, this size is quite suitable for placement in any room.

Klipsch R-115SW review

The Klipsch R-115SW subwoofer is the perfect combination of power, sophistication, and deafening bass. Klipsch R-115SW has a 15-inch driver size vs SVS PB-2000 has 12”. This model, with a frequency response from 18 Hz to 125 kHz, is equipped with a wide range of listening materials.

The built-in low-frequency crossover and phase control settings optimize the sound of the subwoofer in the listening environment. The rugged subwoofer enclosure minimizes noise and delivers clear, undistorted sound at low frequencies. Its MDF body is finished with matte polymer veneer. The R-115SW is equipped with a WA port to host the optional WA-2 wireless subwoofer.
