Features & Performance

The performance characteristics of the Klipsch R-115SW vs SVS SB-2000 comparison show us that the R- 115SW has a better crossover frequency range of 40-160 Hz, and the crossover frequency range of SB- 2000 is 50 to 160 Hz. However, the SVS SB-2000 has a better frequency response of 19-220 Hz, whereas the R-115SW response range is 18 to 125 Hz.

The Klipsch R- 115SW features an “all-digital” amplifier that combines accuracy and high efficiency. This model can be connected using the wireless protocol, but it is necessary to use the WA-2 wireless subwoofer kit while doing it.

The SVS SB-2000 has a high-performance DSP integrated that makes the output sound clearer and also helps to achieve seamless blending. The installed sonic engine helps to preserve audio purity at high volume.

Now let’s look at some general pros and cons of both subwoofers.

Pros of SVS SB-2000

  • It is easy to install, set up, and use and it comes with a very detailed manual.
  • The sophisticated DSP module makes the output sound natural and tight.
  • It blends perfectly with other speakers but it can take some time to adjust the settings to blend in properly. 

Cons

  • It is stated by some customers that they can hear some loud noises when the subwoofer comes out of the standby mode

Pros  Klipsch R- 115-SW

  • The output bass sound is tight and clean, which makes it a good option for music and movies.
  • It can be connected with a wireless kit, so you don’t have to deal with wires.

Cons

  • It is quite heavy and large in size.
  • Some customers state that it is not loud enough regarding their preferences.

Winner

Both these subwoofers perform really well if you make sound and other stuff into account. As you can see from the above discussion, they both have their own advantages. But if we have to pick a winner among the two, the SVS SB- 2000 takes the game as it puts on a better sound performance overall. It has better frequency response and sound output which makes it a better pick. But you can also pick Klipsch R- 115 SW if it suits your preferences.

SVS SB- 1000 vs. Klipsch R- 112SW

If we want to compare the Klipsch R-112SW and SVS SB-1000 in terms of sound, we have to locate them in the best way first. As the location is really important at times in order to get good sound output from your subwoofer. The Klipsch R-112SW needs much time and effort to install. Only if you run two of them in the opposite corners, then it sounds good at the corner. It is better to place the subwoofer closer to the center of the wall. The SVS SB- 1000 is more “loyal” as it sounds far better in the corner.

The SVS SB-1000 provides sufficient output to feel the bass for listening to music. But the bass will not feel much expressive and powerful when you will be watching movies. If you want to use the subwoofer for watching the video, it’s good to arrange a mini-theater in the room, 2.1 for Blu- ray movies, for example.

On the other hand, the Klipsch R- 112SW produces great sub notes with hits that are perfect for watching movies.

Both these subwoofers are 12-inch models, that’s why they fit in small and medium spaces. Nevertheless, both their sound is flawless in terms of crispness and distortions, with the speakers, of course.

Well, let’s look at the side-by-side comparison table between these two subwoofers and see what they have in common and what the differences between their features are.

Features & Performance

The SVS SB-1000 has a digital amp with a peaking capacity of 720 W, which is higher than many other subs of this price range have. Klipsch R-112SW can offer only 600 W that allows getting high performance at a rather low volume level.

SVS SB-1000 is remarkable for the slight phase adjustment of the subwoofer when setting it up. There is a wide range of crossover settings of it but 90 Hz is the optimal level to get accurate sound. On the other hand, the Klipsch R-112SW requires correct phase settings to enable it to keep up with the main speakers.

Pros of SVS SB-1000

  • The SVS SB- 1000 seems to be a reliable device due to its high-quality parts.
  • It has a double magnetic system, 12-inch front-firing driver, which is enhanced via a soft rubbish suspension with increased net slips.

Cons

  • Small cabinet resonances occur at high volume levels.

Pros of Klipsch R-112SW

  • The output sound is not too boomy.
  • No need to adjust it constantly while changing the type of audio.

Cons

  • The subwoofer looks like brushed aluminum. However, Klipsch speakers mostly have a wooden texture. So, such misbalance in the acoustic system’s design can be annoying

Winner

The winner between these two mentioned subwoofers is the SVS SB-1000. For its high-quality parts and driver, it produces a great quality sound. Even though the Klipsch subwoofer has a nice sound output, it falls short in some aspects like the frequency response and other stuff. As a result, the SVS SB-1000 wins over the Klipsch R-112SW subwoofer.

 

SVS PB-1000 vs. Klipsch R-120SW

Actually, both of these subwoofers have much in common. But your preferences may outweigh some of the aspects. When looking for a great subwoofer, the sound is on top of my preferences. Both the SVS PB-1000 and Klipsch R-120 SW provide good sound quality. However, the SVS one has a smaller driver of 10 inches, whereas the Klipsch one has a 12-inch driver.

Now let’s look at the side-by-side comparison between the features of the SVS PB-1000 and the Klipsch R- 120 SW for your convenience.

Features and Performance

As said earlier, these two subwoofers have a lot in common. They have the same vented enclosure type and same kind of driver placement, even though their driver sizes are different. They have different port placements as the SVS PB-1000 has the port places at the front panel, whereas the ports of the Klipsch- R- 120 SW are places at the backside. The SVS subwoofer has more audio amplifier output than the Klipsch subwoofer. The nominal to maximal output power is also more as the SVS PB- 1000 has the nominal to the maximal output power of 300-720 watt. The rate is 200-400 watts in the case of the Klipsch- 120SW. 

Pros  of SVS PB-1000

I know most of the audiophiles will say not to mix speaker brands. But once I got the levels balanced, then everything worked together in perfect harmony and I could not even remotely tell that there are two different brands of subs in the room.

  • SVS provides fantastic customer service. They look good and come well packaged.
  • The SVS PB- 1000 subwoofer can easily compete with 12-inch subwoofers despite being a 10 inch one. Also, it has tight and punchy sound output, fitting in very well with my system.

Cons

  • The SVS PB-1000 has a nice sound but it’s a bit underwhelmed by its lack of intensity.

Pros of Klipsch R-120 SW

  • The copper pins for the grille and the accents all over the subwoofer look excellent.
  • It is well packaged and easy to set up.

Cons

  • Maybe a little bigger than your expectation due to the incorrect vision of the subwoofer fitting in your room.

Winner

I would recommend everyone to stop at the Klipsch R-120SW model as even at low settings, it will vibrate your walls. The sound is really clear and free of hissing compared to the SVS PB-1000. Though the SVS PB- 1000 has a better power output and a better frequency response too, here in the case of the Klipsch R- 120 SW you’ll have a tight and precise bass. If you want a reasonably priced subwoofer to usher you into the reality of high fidelity sound, the Klipsch one is it.

Well, from all the above discussions and different kinds of comparisons between different models of SVS and Klipsch subwoofers, you can see that both these brands provide a lot of services in terms of sound and features. You can’t completely rule out one brand and choose another, as both these brands manufacture quite a great number of good quality subwoofers. And they both have their own share of outstanding subwoofers.

So it actually depends on your preference of models and features. You must deeply look into different models and proceed to choose one based on your preferences. As different models have differences in provided sound quality and other services. However, if we are to choose one brand at the end between these two, I will go for SVS. As from the above discussion you can see SVS provides a bit more strength in the sound and also provides better sets of features usually than Klipsch. So, SVS has a bit of edge over Klipsch regarding subwoofers.
