Looking forward for noise/hiss difference, if any. Thanks!

Great review, @hardisj . Any noteworthy hiss? I have a pair of SB-2000 notPro, and both emit an audible "shhhhhhhhhhhh..." at a listening distance of ~8'. SVS support told me it is normal, but I can hear it clearly during quiet passages and between songs, which causes me to listen to music without subs most of the time.
necrobump, just wanted to say that I have an SB2000 nonpro, and it has barely any hiss. I can just hear it when I literally get down on my knees and wear the sub like a headphone with my ear about 10cm from the speaker, but not at all from the couch.

Maybe try a different sub cable? Does it hiss with no input cable connected? Turn the power off before disconnecting - I've made that mistake before.

I received the first of my two SB4000 subs yesterday. It is completely silent. My only complaint is that it weighs 102 lbs.

The SB3000 is a wonderful bargain for what it delivers. My only issue was that very slight noise.
Good to hear! The twin 4000s should do the job!
