    It should say on the back if its a version 3, it will show V.3 in the serial No.Also the top of the subwoofer is rounded off,earlier versions are square.

    Great sub for the price,would expect to pay no more than £130 ish for a V3.

    Hello,

    I own a V4, which is a different animal than previous versions. The V4 is more musical (not boomy) compared to previous versions, thanks to a redesigned amplifier and driver. A high-end home theater shop owner told me amplifier quality can make or break a sub and he said the new amplifier in the V4 is of much higher quality than the previous versions. The driver has greater excursion than previous PS-1000s. Having owned both a V2 and a V4 I can say I greatly prefer the V4 for its tightness with music. Older versions are fine if you mostly watch movies, but for both music and movies I'd look at the V4.
    My friend hated my PS-1000 V2, calling it "in your face." He listened to my V4 with music and his jaw dropped. He said there was no comparison.

    Are there any easy mods to reduce the boom in the earlier versions ?
