Probably going to be an upgrade to the ultra speakers. Wish it was a dual opposed pb16 ultra or something like that.

Finally, A Micro Subwoofer Worthy of the Name SVS.​

The challenges of designing a subwoofer capable of chest-pounding output at the lowest frequencies, while maintaining effective thermal and energy management in a micro-sized enclosure, has always been the holy grail of subwoofer brands. Previous designs were flawed with weak output, distortion, and uncontrolled movement of the cabinet itself.

3000 Micro is like a magic trick— small enough to fit anywhere and capable of delivering breathtaking bass from a shockingly compact 10-inch enclosure. For the first-time ever, a micro subwoofer that does not compromise on performance.

SVS engineers had to bend the laws of physics designing a micro-sized subwoofer capable of massive, pristine output in HiFi and home theater systems. Reference amplifier technology from the flagship SVS 16-Ultra subwoofers was applied in an 800 watt RMS, 2,500+ watt Peak Power Sledge STA-800D2 amplifier with discrete MOSFET output for effortless, on-demand current with unerring control.

Harnessing the colossal power are fully active dual opposing 8-inch SVS drivers connected in parallel to move in perfect unison for massive slam and output with crisp, musical transients. The usable surface area of two fully active 8-inch woofers firing in opposite directions unleashes performance on par with much larger subwoofers and the tight, punchy output obliterates multi-driver passive radiator subwoofer designs known for bloated, one-note bass.

3000 Micro also has brains to match its brawn. A 50 MHz Analog Devices DSP enables sophisticated control and custom frequency response curves for optimized real-world output and acoustically tuned room gain. It also enables advanced tuning and control via the SVS subwoofer DSP smartphone app.

Gloss Black in the UK already, Available to order now, shipping Monday
Gloss White arriving next week.

Reservations available now.

It is small, just doing size comparisons now, it is smaller than an album cover! If it is as good as they say it is going to be a stunning little box.

This and the new Velodyne look interesting. Something small for office but can scare the crap out of colleagues haha. But at 900 pounds we in the 2000 pro territory. Think the sb3000 is only about 1300.

Yes, I think we were all hoping for something far bigger, but as a business case, this makes a lot of sense.

I am going to try to get one to play with at the weekend.

Certainly is an interesting product, small but mighty. Would've considered it if it was announced last month. It'll be in for stiff competition but SVS has a solid reputation so I'm sure it do well for those with smaller desktop setups or stereo systems. Or as someone put it once, ahem @Gasp3621, an AV system where the wife call the shots. :D
