Karma-AV announce the UK availability of the SVS 3000 Series subwoofers, which promise to deliver the brand’s signature bass quality and dynamics from smaller cabinets.  Featuring an all-new 13-inch high-excursion SVS driver powered by 800W RMS of MOSFET amplification and tuned using Analog Devices audio DSP through an innovative SVS smartphone app, the new SB (Sealed Box) and PB (Ported Box) models will offer room control from a wider range of room locations.

Powering the 3000 Series is a sophisticated Sledge STA-800D2 amplifier, which combines the high current output of discrete MOSFETs with Class D efficiency and is capable of 800W RMS (2,500W peak). Governing the output is a 50 MHz Analog Devices Audio DSP with 56bit filtering designed with multiple parameter adjustments to achieve the ideal in-room response.

The 13-inch 3000 Series’ drivers are entirely new designs combining proprietary features including a massive dual-ferrite magnet motor assembly weighing over 11kg, edge-wound voice coils, lightweight and rigid aluminium venter cones, and a long-throw parabolic driver surround built for extreme excursion, SPLs and longevity.

Convenient control is possible via the SVS subwoofer DSP smartphone app for Apple, Android and Amazon devices. Launched with the flagship SVS 16-Ultra subwoofers, the SVS app offers an easy way to control volume, adjust crossover frequencies, calibrate a three-band parametric EQ, set polarity, access multiple DSP functions and program custom presets for the one-touch tuning of music, movies, gaming sources. Advanced customisation allows for subwoofer naming, standby mode selection and system resetting. Bluetooth connectivity delivers full system access – even when the subwoofer is out of sight – while bi-directional feedback shows adjustments in real time on both the app and rear panel interface. 

The 3000 Series models are equipped with a double-thick MDF front baffle and rigid internal bracing to support the drive unit and to ensure an acoustically inert environment.
