Product Information

World-Class Performance, Compact Form

Designed for two-channel purists and home theater fans alike, there simply isn't a finer bookshelf monitor available at even twice the price. Equally adept up front in home theater or 2-channel settings, or even as a surround speaker. No matter what your listening preference, the Prime Bookshelf Speakers are the most flexible performers in the Prime speaker line. The handsome styling and high-end finishes result in a premium look that inspires pride, even before you've hit the power button. Matched with both the Prime and Ultra Center, Prime Satellites, and SVS subwoofers, the Prime Bookshelf Speakers can be the cornerstone or a stunning supportive element to any audio system

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.

6.5” Woofer

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.

Overpriced but worth it. I
Overpriced but worth it. I have not taken this speaker apart and hope to never require disassembly. This speaker has excellent sound with unusual clarity. I Would consider floor speakers at a reduced price range.

Piano gloss finish, just looks beautiful! My wife says amazing sound! Looks great in our Home theater room! Not sure why I waited so long to purchase the outstanding Prime bookshelf speakers! The mids and highs blends in well with my subwoofer. Will purchase the prime elevation speakers to complete my setup. Thanks svs!

Prime Bookshelf Review
I have owned a pair of Ultra Bookshelf speakers for a couple years and over that time have shuffled through various speaker options in a second room. With every product I tried, (popular wireless speakers, other bookshelf pairs) I knew there was a better solution out there in the Prime Bookshelf.

At the price these speakers cannot be beat - build quality, design, and the signature SVS sound paired with customer service that goes above and beyond.

I'm happy to have the addition, and as I've told the SVS folks, I'm a lifer with their products. Very pleased and will be back as I continue to add.

Prime Bookshelves
Great speakers! I use them for my side surrounds but I have them in the back because not much sound comes out the rear surround terminals.
