SVS's 2000 series subwoofers incorporate proprietary 12" drives and 500W (1100W peak) DSP controlled amplifiers in both sealed and ported cabinets.
There are two ported versions (in case your wondering about the sealed version, we'd steer you to JL Audio's Dominion):
We're big fans of the PC-2000, because it packs a high output ported subwoofer into a small footprint (16.6" diameter). The ported box subwoofers can be challenging to integrate into a dedicated home theater, due to their size.
The 2000 series offers great sound quality. Not class leading, but sufficiently good that we deem them a solid "go-to" for our budget constrained home theaters. SVS have done an exceptional job with driver limiting DSP, so they are virtually indestructible, and behave well when being pushed to their limit.
