AV Rant #695: SVS SB-2000 Pro Subwoofer Review with Lee Overstreet

May 7th, 2020

Today we present a special episode in which Lee Overstreet, our frequent “pinch hitter” guest co-host, reviews the pair of SVS SB-2000 Pro subwoofers that were graciously provided for review by https://www.svsound.com/

Not only do we talk about the subwoofers themselves, but we also delve into Lee’s experience of following our guidance on how to first set up a single subwoofer, and then how to set up dual subwoofers. Plus, it’s a comparison of how things sounded going from no subs, to one sub, to two subs.

You can read all about the SVS SB-2000 Pro on SVS’ website: https://www.svsound.com/products/sb-2000-pro

And you can find the 12 Step Guide to Setting Up Dual Subwoofers by our very own Rob H. on AVRant’s website: http://www.avrant.com/a-12-step-guide-to-setting-up-dual-subwoofers/
