SVS SB12-NSD Subwoofer Review


The SVS SB12-NSD is an affordable 400watt sealed powered subwoofer with a 12” aluminum cone driver in a tiny sealed cabinet to produce satisfying and exceptionally well rounded bass. Small but potent.

Diminutive form factor + light weight allows plenty of placement options ; Impeccable design execution and optimization ; Unflappable operation at the limit ; Exceptional warranty term

Basic connections and controls only ; Best suited to smaller spaces and/or moderate playback levels
