Like their bookshelf-sized cousins, the Sony SS-CS5s, these towers from Sony feature a ”super tweeter,” claiming high-end response to 50,000 Hz and superior off-axis response. Some may find the bass response a bit lacking for a tower, but their imaging and soundstage rivals speakers costing hundreds more.

The smaller sibling of the SB-2000, this is an excellent sub for music, known for its clarity, faithful reproduction, and low distortion. The SB-1000 will also work well in small-to-medium-sized home theater rooms, but in very large rooms, something a bit larger might be needed.


  • The front face of the Sony SSCS3 is approximately 86.15% larger than that of the SVS SB-1000.
  • The depth of the SVS SB-1000 is approximately 42.44% deeper than that of the Sony SSCS3.
  • The spatial volume of the Sony SSCS3 is approximately 30.69% greater than that of the SVS SB-1000.

Please Note: the above comparisons are based on the dimensions of a bounding rectangle that would fit the front face of a speaker. In the case of volume, the comparisons are based on a cube that would enclose the speaker entirely. These measurements do not take into account variations in the speaker shape, such as curves, diagonal edges, or cutaways. These measurements cannot be relied upon to measure the internal volume of the speaker.
