One of the smallest subwoofers from SVS – 3000 Micro – is assembled in an almost cubic cabinet measuring just over 10 inches. Despite the thick MDF walls and bridges for even greater rigidity, in addition to electronics, two 8-inch woofers fit inside at once. They are connected in parallel and directed in opposite directions. As a result, the “scourge” of subwoofers – uncompensated vibrations – is allegedly absent at all.
The loudspeakers received external suspensions injection molded from NBR. Their patented shape provides a maximum diffuser travel of 24 mm. The diffusers are driven by copper voice coils wound in four layers.
The Sledge onboard amplifier is based on the technologies of the flagship SVS 16-Ultra models. It operates in economy class D using discrete MOSFETs in the output stages. The SVS 3000 Micro subwoofer delivers 800 W RMS peak power at a lower frequency limit of 23 Hz (± 3dB ripple).
The signal for the amplifier is prepared by an Analog Devices digital DSP operating at a frequency of 50 MHz. The proprietary Intelligent Control Interface (ICI) on the rear panel is complemented by the SVS Subwoofer Control multi-platform smartphone app.
The subwoofer features sturdy metal perforated speaker grills and custom isoelastomer threaded feet. The case is available in two finishes: black or white piano lacquer.
In the UK, you can buy SVS 3000 Micro subwoofer at £900.
