The piano gloss black PC-4000 13.5" 1200W Cylinder Subwoofer from SVS uses a 13.5" down-firing woofer to produce up to 1200W of RMS power and up to 4000W of peak power to provide powerful bass in nearly any listening environment. It features three bass ports and an adjustable minimum frequency response between 15, 16, or 17 Hz, making the PC-4000 equipped to handle virtually all types of listening material.

The PC-4000 subwoofer driver delivers on the potential of the Sledge STA-1200D amplifier's power with precision and control to produce room-energizing SPLs and low frequency extension with accuracy at all drive levels. The amplifier uses a Class D design combined with fully discrete MOSFET output and an Analog Devices DSP engine. The cabinet design is vertical to increase cabinet volume to achieve low frequency output on par with the much larger ported box subwoofers, but with much less floor space required.

13.5" down-firing subwoofer driver with underhung motor configuration optimized for ported cabinet design
49.6 lb woofer with a 44.3 lb motor
Underhung 53mm Xmax, 91.6mm Xmech precision-aligned excursion
8-layer aluminum flat wire edge wound 3" voice coil for low distortion, heat dissipation, linearity, and zero power compression
Two toroidal ferrite magnets generate high levels of magnetic force to drive the highest levels of excursion, SPL, and start/go power for the authoritative bass possible
High density FEA-optimized cast aluminum basket
Dual 24-strand copper and Nomex composite high-temperature leads woven through the suspension provide a remarkably durable electrical connection from the amplifier to the voice coil
Glass fiber laminated dustcap and reinforced, vented paper-composite cone sub-structure ensures a neutral radiating surface
Precision machined motor elements and narrow tolerance suspension parts produce high linearity at full excursion for tight and fast response, even at reference volumes
Oversized low carbon vented steel U-yoke and top plate provide cooling and improved magnetics for maximum performance and efficiency
Copper ring shorting sleeve reduces gap induction and distortion, enhances thermal conductivity
Nickel-plated high-tension spring terminals provide secure connections
Proprietary injection molded gasket and parabolic SBR extreme-excursion surround maintains suitable pistonic motion for accuracy and control
Low carbon 1008 steel components with black electrophoresis plating
Sledge 1200W continuous Class D design with 4000W of peak power
User adjustable low pass, phase, polarity, and room gain compensation with three parametric EQs and port tuning for alignment with speakers and optimized performance in any room
SVS Bluetooth DSP control app for iOS and Android devices with three user presets allow custom tuning for every room and system
High-efficiency, cool-running Class D switching topology with massive 32A 600V MOSFET's result in lower EMI and highest efficiency while providing power to produce SPLs and low frequency output with clarity well beyond reference listening levels
50 MHz Analog Devices audio DSP with double precision
100 to 240V full range input active PFC (Power Factor Correction) pre-regulates mains to solid 360 VDC regardless of main voltage or quality so the sound quality never falters
Active PFC lowers average current and smooths mains input current allowing for 1200W output from a standard 15A mains circuit
XLR and RCA stereo input/output with ultra-wide input voltage for consumer and professional audio applications
Convenient front-mounted display featuring new IFC (Intelligent Feature Control) with bright blue dimmable/defeatable 8-digit LED front display
Variable port tuning with standard, extended, and sealed modes for easy optimization of output based on listening preferences and content
Auto/On and 3 to 30 VAC/DC trigger for maximum installation convenience
Green 0.5W low standby power consumption
RoHS compliant, lead-free construction, world-wide safety certifications
2" thick MDF cabinet walls and rigid internal bracing to support the massive drive unit and to ensure an acoustically inert environment
Reinforced internal design and acoustic insulation eliminates all coloration or resonance from the cabinet, even when the deepest low frequencies are played at reference volume.
Protective, non-resonant steel mesh grille and SoundPath custom elastomer feet for reducing noise artifacts within a room by decoupling the PC-4000 from the floor
Foam port plugs allow for variable tuning to achieve balanced and accurate low frequency response with all tuning preferences
Bluetooth controlled subwoofer DSP app, works with both iOS and Android operating systems
3-band parametric EQ controller allows precise adjustments for frequency slope and Q factor down to the single Hz level with four different slopes
Stores three custom presets to allow for ideal tuning with movies, music, and other listening experiences
Bidirectional feedback shows adjustments in real time on both app and subwoofer interface
Easy-to-follow tutorial provides clear guidance for all functions
