Whether you pick up SVS’s keenly-priced SB-1000 Pro in its standard black ash finish or premium gloss white or black, the end result is the same – a performance that beguiles in terms of speed, slam and depth, from a cabinet that measures barely bigger than the subwoofer’s forward-facing 12in driver. Inside, a 325W-rated DSP amplifier provides ample power, giving explosive soundmix moments the scale and impact they deserve. And to cap off an excellent overhaul of SVS’s entry-level model, the company’s Bluetooth-based control and EQ app – once the preserve of its flagship 16 Ultra series – is on hand to fine tune in-room performance.
