Sonos SUB review

The Sonos SUB Active Subwoofer is designed to complete Sonos branded audio systems that require additional bass support. In the comparison of Sonos SUB vs SVS PB-2000 it is obvious that SVS has two times larger driver: 12 and 6 inches. The original shape of the subwoofer enclosure is due to its design - the device uses two counter-directional speakers working on a common central cavity. Due to this, the developers managed to solve several problems at once and, first of all, to make the sub-insensitive to the installation location in the room. The Sonos SUB subwoofer can even be installed along walls or furniture without sacrificing bass quality. Sonos SUB

SVS PB-2000 review

SVS PB-2000 is an excellent choice for a home theater in rooms of 25-35 sq m. Honest 17 Hz and 500 W of continuous power (1100 W peak) will create an indescribable atmosphere when watching blockbusters. The SVS PB-2000 boasts 29.7 kg vs 16 kg from Sonos SUB. The subwoofer features a front-firing 4-inch high-flow port with inner/outer port flares and energizes rooms of all sizes with extreme low frequency output for jaw-droppingly powerful and realistic movie and music audio experiences. A reinforced Nomex spider was integrated for improved linearity and driver control, especially important when the STA-500D amp is pushing the subwoofers to their maximum output levels. The driver also features a durable low-creep rubber long-throw surround. SVS PB-2000
