SVS SB-1000 Pro Subwoofer & SoundPath Wireless Audio Adapter

Closing Date: 19/11/2021

This issue we've teamed up with American subwoofer specialist SVS and its UK distributor Karma-AV to give away an SB-1000 Pro subwoofer, plus SoundPath Wireless Audio Adapter – all you need to bring brilliant bass to your home cinema.

SVS's SB-1000 Pro was awarded Best Buy status in HCC #322 and went on to win the EISA 2021-2022 Best Buy Home Theatre Subwoofer award. The latest of the manufacturer's bassmakers to integrate its Bluetooth control and EQ app, it offers a wealth of functionality and installation flexibility that belies its price tag.


The sub is available in a black ash finish for £549, or black or white gloss for £639. We have one gloss model to dish out, in whichever finish takes your fancy!

On a mission
While the SB-1000 Pro trickles down technology from SVS's flagship models, including the mighty SB16-Ultra, it's an entirely new design on a mission to extract the best performance possible from its custom-made 12in high-excursion driver. This stiff but lightweight fibre composite cone is mounted on a proprietary injection-moulded surround for improved control and accuracy, and powered by a Sledge Class D amplifier delivering peaks up to 820W. All this technology is housed in a smart-looking and acoustically inert compact cabinet.

A state-of-the-art Analog Devices DSP engine then handles signal filtering and EQ, while SVS's control app allows for quick adjustment of volume, phase and low-pass filter, one-touch selection of Movie and Music presets, plus user-configurable parametric EQ with multiple memory slots. It's intuitive and easy to use – and a tweaker's dream!

Performance is best-in-class, as summed up in our review: 'Ultimately this subwoofer represents the very essence of what SVS does so well – it's solidly built, offers attractive finishes, and boasts high-end features including a really useful Bluetooth control app. More importantly it has bass extension and power to spare, and manages to plumb the depths with a cabinet barely bigger than the driver itself.'


Cutting the cord
The SB-1000 Pro naturally offers line-level and speaker-level inputs for use with an AV receiver or processor, but for a sleek, uncluttered installation it's also compatible with SVS's SoundPath Wireless Audio Adapter. This fuss-free £180 accessory features USB-powered transmitter and receiver modules that connect to your AVR and the SVS subwoofer respectively. Wireless 2.4GHz technology is then used to send the audio signal with an ultra-low latency of 14ms. The result is a cable-free solution that doesn't compromise performance.
