This is probably the first subwoofer review that spanned across 3 states, California, Nevada, and Arizona.
The PB-3000’s are truly a different animal, and Smith Freeman from SVS decided to try a split wind voice coil, and it’s a piece of technology that I am now in love with.
Much like progressive rate springs on cars, which give a smooth ride, but firm up when necessary, the PB-3000’s have a Jekyll and Hyde thing going on, which makes it act like a bigger, more powerful subwoofer than it is.
My expectation was a sub with more kick than the PB-2000’s, but not the same kick as the PB-4000, but eyes closed, I couldn’t easily tell the PB-3000 from the PB-4000.
I would venture to say that upgrading from the PB-3000 to the PB-4000 might be disappointing, there just isn’t much difference. I think you would need to go to the PB-16 Ultras to get a substantial, noticeable improvement.
To be clear, these are GREAT for music as well, otherwise I wouldn’t like them. “Temptation” by Diana Krall and “Jersey Girl” by Holly Cole sound gorgeous and rich. Eminem’s “Killshot” is disturbingly good. These subs handle everything well as far as I can tell.
To sum it up, these subs are the embodiment of why I started this channel. If I packed it in tomorrow, these are the subs that would have a permanent place in my system. Yes, I would prefer the PB-16 Ultras instead, but the PB-3000’s are more of a “real world” option for me financially.

LG 4K 3D that I replaced previous Vizio with a Square Trade type warranty. Love the LG, some issues aside. Going through Amazon means you can get a decently priced 5 year warranty (strongly recommend for TV’s and AVR’s)
