SVS PC-2000 Powered Cylinder Subwoofer

SVS PC-2000 Powered Cylinder Subwoofer

The original SVS subwoofer form factor has been reborn and outfitted with new isolation feet, plus driver and amplifier technology from their 2000 Series. With a footprint measuring just 16.5″ in diameter, the company claims their new $800 powered cylinder subwoofer (model PC-2000) delivers unmatched bass performance per square-inch of floor space.

Standing 34-inch tall, the PC-2000 is a striking monolith of power that uses vertical height to achieve a generous enclosure volume, despite the small footprint.  It is also the first SVS subwoofer to come standard with the SoundPath Isolation System. The elastomer feet decouple and isolate the PC-2000 from the floor, claim tighter and cleaner sounding bass, less room rattle, and fewer complaints from neighbors and roommates.

Inside, the PC-2000 boasts a 12-inch down-firing 2000-series driver. The company says nearly 20 driver prototypes were built by hand and punished with rigorous real-world testing; including 100-hours straight of full power testing; before the final version was approved for production. The drivers consist of dual high-grade ferrite magnets and an FEA-optimized motor for nearly distortion-free performance. A reinforced Nomex spider was integrated for improved linearity and driver control, especially important when the STA-500D amp is pushing the PC-2000 to maximum output levels.

“It’s an absolute beast of a performer and ideal for those who want outstanding deep bass effects and mid-bass slam, without the huge footprint,” said Gary Yacoubian, SVS president.

SVS conservatively rates the sub at 500 watts RMS continuous and 1100 watts peak dynamic, while the Sledge STA-500D DSP amplifier provides an array of filters and volume, gain, and phase controls for fine-tuning performance. A frequency-dependent limiter/compressor algorithm with adjustable attack/release and compression parameters maintains its refined behavior at the drive limits. Meanwhile, the DSP amplifier consumes less than half-a-watt in stand-by mode.

Rated at 17-270 HZ +/- 3dB, the PC-2000 features a stereo line-level RCA input and 80Hz high pass filtered output connections, continuously variable volume and phase controls, and a rear-firing 4″ high-flow port with large radius inner and outer flanges.

Pricing and Availability
The SVS PC-2000 will be available late November 2014 for $799.99 with Black Ash top cap or $849.99 with the Piano Gloss top cap.
