The PC-2000 carries a price tag of $799.99 or $849.99, depending on your choice of the Blask Ask or Piano Black top cap.

From SVS
SVS, a worldwide leader in high performance home audio products, proudly announces the PC-2000 subwoofer, a modernization of the original SVS cylinder design featuring driver and amplifier technology from the vaunted 2000 Series subwoofers, and fresh, d�cor-friendly styling. With a footprint measuring just 16.5" in diameter, the PC-2000 delivers unmatched bass performance per square-inch of floor space.

Standing 34" tall, the PC-2000 is a striking monolith of power that uses vertical height to achieve a generous enclosure volume, despite the small footprint. Interchangeable black ash or piano gloss top caps give the subwoofer design flexibility to match a range of d�cors. It is also the first SVS subwoofer to come standard with the SoundPath Isolation System. The elastomer feet decouple and isolate the PC-2000 from the floor, resulting in tighter and cleaner sounding bass, less room rattle, and fewer complaints from neighbors and roommates.

Inside, the PC-2000 boasts a 12" down-firing 2000-series driver. Nearly 20 driver prototypes were built by hand and punished with rigorous real-world testing, including 100 hours straight of full power testing before the final version was approved for production. The drivers consist of dual high-grade ferrite magnets and an FEA-optimized motor for nearly distortion-free performance. A reinforced Nomex spider was integrated for improved linearity and driver control, especially important when the STA-500D amp is pushing the PC-2000 to maximum output levels.

Conservatively rated at 500 watts RMS continuous and 1,100 watts peak dynamic, the Sledge STA-500D DSP amplifier inside the PC-2000 has brains to match its brawn. A sophisticated DSP in the amplifier includes an array of filters and volume, gain, and phase controls for fine-tuning performance. A frequency-dependent limiter/compressor algorithm with adjustable attack/release and compression parameters offers the ultimate in refined behavior at the drive limits of the subwoofer system. The DSP amplifier is effortless in its delivery of all this power, yet it consumes less than half a watt in standby mode.

Rated at 17-270 Hz, +/- 3dB, the PC-2000 features a stereo line-level RCA input and 80Hz high pass filtered output connections, continuously variable volume and phase controls, and a rear-firing 4" high-flow port with large radius inner and outer flanges.

Pricing for the PC-2000 is $799.99 for the Black Ash top cap and $849.99 for the Piano Gloss top cap.
