SVS PB-1000 vs Klipsch R-120SW

SVS PB-1000 review

Klipsch R-120SW vs SVS PB-1000, what is the best choice for daily use? The first thing that catches your eye is nominal output power, which is 300W, while the other model has 200W. The frequency response is also slightly better than the first model, but almost imperceptibly. At the same time, both of these models have only one driver built into the front panel, it differs only in size. In the first case there are 10 inches, and in the second 12.
