SVS SB-3000 Subwoofer Review

“I like placing the sub right in the center if you are using one, or just inside or outside of the main speaker cabinets if you’re using two. This was my first time setting up two subs in my room, and I felt set up was no harder with the pair. After I adjusted for phase, I placed the subs about 6.5 inches inside the main cabinets, which are way out into the room. If you use this method you’ll likely not need to adjust phase. I didn’t. Once the subs were placed in this configuration, I started playing with the feature-rich SVS smartphone app. As it turns out I only used the volume (at -16dB), low pass filter (LFE disabled, 50Hz with a 12dB slope), and a preset I named LO VOL that boosted the gain 2dB for low volume listening. Phase was set at 0, and polarity stayed in the positive default. I used a couple of different frequency response phone apps to look at the room response. Since things were looking good, and sounding damn good, I didn’t feel I needed the parametric EQ or the room gain compensation. I used my favorite speaker accessory, the Gingko ARCHs under the Quads (see review HERE), and also under the rubber feet on the SB-3000s. When the set up was optimized, I started listening. ”
