Question Advice on Subwoofer choice


Active Member
Hi all

I am in search for a new subwoofer and need help to choose between SVS SB1000 , SVS PB1000 and BK XXLS400DF subs.

They all in same price bracket around £500 .

My room is 6m x 3.5m . Listening position 4metres away . I am gona be using it for home theater and music .

I am leaning towards Bk my self but AB class amp puts me off a bit .

I am not too keen on SVS PB1000 because of the size (its huge), but thinking that SB1000 would not give me the thump that PB has .

Thx for advice in advance.

You forgot the XTZ 10.17 / 12.17. 500w rms Class-D amp, ported design -> digs down to 20hz. Port bung tweaks, eq options to change the sound. Size wise quite nice too. 3 colours to choose from.

There is french review where this model was very comparable to SVS PB1000. Priced at 500£. Demoing can be done at Jag`s place.

XTZ 10.17 Subwoofer
XTZ 12.17 Subwoofer

I would definitely add these to your list.

Edit. Here is the summarison of the french review; http://www.xtz.se/files/reviews/sub-10-17/sub-10-17_5190738_File2.pdf
