Title: Smartlifestyle - SVS subwoofers
Post by: Vaughan on September 14, 2015, 11:18:05 AM
Morning guys,

We are the new dealers for SVS subwoofers.  :D Have always been in love with SVS, ever since I imported the SVS PB10 ISD - about 8 years ago.

(http://hometheaterreview.com/images/SVS%20Sledge.jpg)

We will be handling SVS in Cape Town.

Pricing :

*SVS SB1000 - R11990 inc

*SVS PB1000 - R14990 inc

*SVS SB2000 - R16990 inc

*SVS PB2000 - R19990 inc

*SVS SB13 Ultra - R42990 inc/ PB13 Ultra - R49990 inc

For more information, please don't hesitate to contact me via email or send me a PM on the forums.

Morning to all,

The SB2000 replaces the SB12 NSD, but the goods news is that our suppliers have a good deal of stock left. Roughly the same performance, but far, far less expensive.

(http://www.homecinemachoice.com/sites/18/images/article_images_month/2013-08/svs%20sb12-nsd%2001.jpg)

We are selling them for R9900 inc each. At that price point, in terms of clean output and deep bass extension, I don't think there is anything that can touch this level of performance. A full performance analysis can be found here (http://www.data-bass.com/systems)

For comparative purposes, in terms of deep bass extension down low (~ 20 Hz), a single SB12 NSD is roughly twice as powerful as a Velodyne EQ Max 15 (6 dB+ differential). Not bad for a subwoofer that is roughly half the price.

Judging by the happy customers all over the web for pure stereo listening, I think they've made a gem here. Sealed design,  so no potential port chuffing either.

Reviews can be found : here (http://www.audioholics.com/subwoofer-reviews/sb12-nsd-subwoofer/sb12-nsd-measurements),  here (https://www.avforums.com/review/svs-sb12-nsd-subwoofer-review.92) and here (http://www.homecinemachoice.com/news/article/svs-sb12-nsd-review/16261)

Any technical queries, please don't hesitate to contact me. Have a great day guys!  :D

Greetings all,

Hope everyone had an enjoyable holiday. Just an update regarding stock on the SB12 NSD - there are +- 40 units left. Once they are sold there will be no more SB12, only the SB2000.

So if anyone wants/needs one (or two) at the current pricing please let me know before it's too late.

Apologies for the delay.  :P The suppliers of SVS (Volco) have no stock of the PB1000. Stock is incoming, ETA 2-3 weeks. Pricing still to be determined.

Just a stock update :

Have the SB1000, SB13 Ultra (2 available) and PB13 Ultra (3 available) in stock. Still have 4 SB12-NSD units left.

My brother bought on of Rodney's SB12-NBD subs. Amazing performance! Would have jumped on one of the SVS subs if it had speaker level inputs.  :'(

North of 40k if the 13ultra is anything to go by. I'd guess 50k+

Hi George, I'm not sure. My suppliers don't have a price as yet, but I should know in the next few weeks.

As an estimate (and don't hold me to it  :)) around the R53990 inc mark.

The SVS SB12 was our most successful subwoofer model and we sold out a while back. However SVS had another batch which our suppliers have taken off their hands. :)

So first week November the SB12's will be available again. Retail will be R11990 inc. Still a heck of a bargain for what you get.

SVS SB12 NSDs are now available!

(https://images-eu.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/51RsIT5WFPL._SL500_AC_SS350_.jpg)

For members that missed out the last time, now is your opportunity to become an SVS owner. Reviews on this subwoofer :

This was posted on the first page, but for an in-depth performance analysis please visit :

http://data-bass.com/data?page=system&id=80&mset=86

For comparison, the B&W 610XP, which is R5000 more, is down almost 7 dB to 20 Hz and 6 dB to 25 Hz. This means you need to buy 2 of them (and both must be co-located) just to hang with the SB12 NSD - that is R33K worth of sub.  :winkwink:

For those who have already ordered, order another one for smoother bass across the seating area in addition to lower distortion and greater clean output.

As they say, there is no replacement for displacement.  :D

If you are interested please send me a PM, or give me a call and I'll finalise a price for you.
