Hi, I am looking to build a 3.1 system in a 1100 cubic feet room. The room is "sealed" in the sense that it is not connected to any open area when I close the room door.


Currently, I am using audio monitor rx-1 for L/R speakers, silver centre for centre speaker and Denon x2000.


In Singapore the cost of pb-1000 is $999 and the cost of sb-2000 is $1350. I have read up a bit on how ported and sealed subwoofer works. Currently, I am not sure is it worthwhile to splurge out $350 more to get the sb-2000 due to the "gain" in a small room. Main usage (70%) is movie/drama.


TL;Dr worth it to get sb-2000 over pb-1000 in a small sealed room?

I'd do for the SB2000. You'll get good room gain on the low end and probably have more output above the port tune on the PB1000 and NO PORT NOISE, if you like to drive your subs hard.



Plus the SB is just an all around better sub, as well it should be since it costs more.

Sorry, I forgot to add that my playing volume will be low as I am living in an apartment. I am not sure the low volume we affect the gain of a sealed subwoofer.


THanks for the input kini62!

I recently returned an SB12-NSD which I bought on clearance in favor of the pb-1000. I have a small room also and thought that it would make up for the lack of lower end of the sealed sub. But after a month of tweaking I couldn't get the sound I was looking for. After one day  with the PB-1000 I knew it worked better for me. I use it for some music, but mostly for movies and gaming. I would reccomend calling SVS and they will steer you in the right direction (fyi - they told me the pb-1000 would be e better choice than the sb-2000)

I would go with the PB1000 because of price. $350 more for the SB2000, you will not hear the difference.


If you need a sub with a smaller footprint then that is a different story.


You can buy 3 B stock PB1000's or dual SB2000 for the price of one SB2k here in the states.....

Agreed. The SB-2000 should have plenty of output for your room and I would go for the SB-2000 for the better SQ.
