SVS Drivers Extreme Performance and Uncompromised Fidelity
The proprietary SVS drivers utilize the finest materials and design features to ensure the highest sound quality and performance. The Prime Bookshelf driver array features a 1” aluminum dome tweeter and a 6.5" woofer.
1” Aluminum Dome Tweeter
Light, efficient, and rigid, providing high SPL (Sound Pressure Level) with minimal distortion and the sense of utter transparency, 1" aluminum dome tweeter deploys a Finite-Element-Analysis (FEA) optimized diffuser to ensure it only has the perfect on-axis and off-axis frequency response. That way, everyone in your listening room gets the best performance. Likewise, since these design traits are also found in the SVS Prime and Ultra speakers, both product lines can blend well with one another while offering that SVS hallmark ‘airy’ presentation and incredibly unveiled highs.
SVS built their groundbreaking new 6.5” bass woofer on an all-new cast ABS-fiberglass composite basket for precise component alignment and an inert frame without resonances or added harmonics. Like all of the other drivers in the Prime family, the polypropylene cone is light and rigid to give a flat frequency response and the SPL necessary to keep up with the other drivers. Like all of the other woofers in the Prime and Ultra series, the 6.5” woofer uses aluminum shorting rings for reduced distortion, and a vented voice coil former to keep the motor assembly cool during high SPL playback. For perfect bass extension, the cabinet is rear ported and tuned perfectly for the 6.5” woofer.
SoundMatch Crossover Intelligently Designed for Your Listening Room
SVS's exclusive SoundMatch crossover sports premium-grade capacitors, air-core inductors, and heavy-trace printed circuit boards. All these high-quality components yield lower distortion, tighter tolerances, better heat dissipation, and all around better sound. The 2-way crossover is uniquely tuned so each driver can blend perfectly with each other while offering the best on and off-axis response, while maintaining phase coherency and razor-sharp time domain behavior.

Customer Reviews for SVS Prime Bookshelf Speakers - Pair
The primes are so amazing with music and movies clear and creating a wall of sound.
Thanks so much svs and Gary.
On to the customer support; simply ridiculous. I had a few minor problems getting everything set up just right and they're lightning fast to respond through any form of communication. They were happy to help with anything involving the system, not just the SVS stuff. By far the best customer support I've ever seen. Now dealing with other companies is painful because of how much SVS has spoiled me.
I will say that these speakers are equally suitable for HT and music listening. And I'm most a HT user, but music on these is sublime and so I find myself getting more into music listening because of that.
They also pair great with my Rythmik LV12R sub, matching it's clean and fast and highly refined sound.
