Hey Everyone Today I Have A Couple Subs Up
for comparison we have the Svs SB 3000 and SB 4000 a couple of heavy hitters with many similarities, but a few key differences that may sway you one way or another let’s look at the SB 3000 First. This unit falls in the middle of the Svs lineup. It’s a sealed enclosure. A very nice compact unit comprised of reinforced MDF. I would say it’s actually very compact.
Considering This Does Have A 13-Inch Driver For
comparison. Here’s a picture of the 3000 and 4000 lined up with a PB 2000 and Sp 1000. The driver itself is an aluminum vented cone with a composite fiber dust cap. It’s made to be lightweight and provide extreme accuracy. The cabinet is essentially a cube without the included metal grille and it comes in at 54 pounds.

Piano gloss black black ash is also available as an option, but I actually prefer the gloss, but you should consider that it is a fingerprint magnet if these will be handled very often. The SB 4000 loses the compact nature of the 3000 and replaces it with essentially sheer weight. The sp 4000 comes in a little over 102 pounds, nearly double the weight of the 3000. Although the sub is still considered small when compared to its ported siblings, you will need a little more room to house.
The driver size is not all that different, coming in at 13. 5 versus 13 inches, but at a quick glance between the two. You will see substantial build changes such as a 25-pound magnet on the 3000 and a 40 pound on the 4000. The The 4000 also does not use aluminum in the driver instead they went with a composite cone and glass fiber dust cap.
The Sp 3000 Is Powered By The Sledge
Sta 800 D2 class D Amp. It produces a healthy 800 watts Rms and 2500 peak power. If we continue to look at the AmP. We will notice that this sub-only accepts line level input signals motivate most of you are likely to only be using the LFe input, but I always think it’s nice to include high level inputs for more connectivity options, such as some of the previous models had the amplifier in the 4000 is also a sledge AmP, but this one is rated at 1200 watts Rms and 4000 watts. Peak.
When Looking At The Back Of The
4000, you will notice a few more options. It has xLR input and output connectors as well. as trigger on and off connectors. This may be common useful for serious home theater enthusiasts. The DsP module equipped in both models provides signal control and equalization functions that allow you to modify the response for best results.
The Dsp Module Provides Precise Low
pass filter control in one Hertz steps. Phase control from 0 to 180 in single steps as well as gain control. Another useful tool in this series is the 3 channel parametric equalization and room game compensation. All of these features allow you to more easily fine tune the placement of your sub and possibly allow for more flexibility as well as far as controlling these features. You have two options.
You Can Navigate The Rear Panel,
which is simple and well thought out or what i actually prefer would be to download the SvS app and connect to the sub over bluetooth. This will allow you to sit in your listening position and adjust and modify your sound to your liking. The app is required to truly utilize many of the key features within the DsP, such as crossover slopes, parametric equalization and room gain compensation also saving your presets one item to note. While the SB 3000 allows two methods of control the app and phone. The SB4000 also offers a remote I found the find the most useful feature of the remote is presets.
You Can Control Options Such As Home Theater
music and night time. If you need less bass. It should also be noted that these subs will not have a way to measure your in-room response. You will need to use an external mic such as a ic and likely rew software to fine tune your equalization settings. I put the SB 3000 and 4000 to the test in a two-channel configuration as well as home theater.
First I Would Like To Talk About
the two channel. The subs are paired with a KlH Model fives and an audio lab 6000a. The source will be the Audio Lab 6000n streamer playing Amazon HD tracks a Bic 960 turntable with a shure M91ed and Jico stylus as well as the audio lab Cd transport. The integrated amplifier has no base management built in so I was relying completely on the SvS DsP for tuning. I ran rue and found a suitable location for the subs with a relatively flat curve.
I Then Went Into The App And
basically tamed a couple peaks and also some nulls with some equalization. The 3000 performed it presented with tight and powerful bass weak on the agr album. The click builds into a. deep bass tone in the chorus that will demonstrate the amp and driver’s output Saniria by Sublime will float a bass line throughout the song that will have the driver busy as well. During this, I quickly realized I had the gain too high, although this also demonstrated just how much bandwidth is actually available in these subs.
Another Thing Id Like To Point Out Is
these subs can punch, but when they need they can also blend in an example of this would be the David Bowie song the Man who sold the world covered by Nirvana. It’s a solid example of simply adding more texture and dynamics drum hits and bass lines attacked as well as blended no booming bloated bass or blurring all in all the sub handles two channel effortlessly and at no point the driver seems stressed or pushed The 4000 attacked with the same. speed and power, but we found a new layer. The D frequencies were pushing through slightly more. The chest thump was a little more pronounced as well drum hits on nothing else.
Matters By Metallica Hit A Little Harder, Almost
like it put an exclamation point on it. Most of the frequencies in my sound demos could easily be produced by the 3000, but there was definitely a notable change in hardware between the two i moved on to the home theater. The subs are connected to a Denon 4000 series receiver and calibrated with Odyssey XT-32 in LFe mode. The low-pass filter is disabled allowing the subs to really breathe. I moved both subs through the same familiar scenes.
In Ready Player One A Quiet Place In
interstellar. The 3000 was able to dish out deep thundering bass and scenes, but also articulated enough to add in character and. Whatever you are watching? The 3000 is small in size, but is capable of pressurizing a room letting you feel the subsonic frequencies with ease. My listening room is open and large and this sub can punch well above its footprint. The 4000 in the same configuration stood out more in the home theater setting the Lfe tracks highlighted what this sub can really do absolutely pound out deep tactile bass with no distortion or signs of slowing down so when it comes down to it what are my final thoughts here.
The Sb 3000 Is Probably The
sub to buy if you have space limitations. You will not miss out on a lot it will likely do all you would expect from the sealed enclosure. The 3000 is also likely your best bet if two-channel listening is your primary focus. The advantages of the 4000 over the 3000 are. well highlighted in 2-channel listening in my opinion If home theater is the primary objective.
I Would Give This To The Sb
4000 it truly hits harder and with more authority on the deeper notes. It also has hardware capabilities such as XLR inputs and outputs. If you could only have one in either or in your budget. I would also lean to the 4000. It hits the sweet spot on power size and features.
It Can Easily Handle Home Theater As
well as 2 channel. If I had the option of 2 SB 3000s or 1 SB 4000 I would hands down take the two three thousands for both home theater and two channel listening. It’s hard to compete with two great subs filling all the room nodes. Both of these subs are great and I would have no problems recommending them to anyone.
Another Item Of Note Is.
