The World's Most Versatile Home Theater Speaker
The world’s most versatile high performance home theater speakers, SVS's Prime Elevation Speakers deliver stunning performances as uncompromised, full-range height effects speakers and as a multi-purpose home theater speakers that solve countless room placement issues.
Exciting new surround sound formats such as Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, and Auro 3D, known as “object-based surround sound”, unleash the ultimate immersive movie, music, and gaming experience by incorporating “height effects” emanating from overhead. The Prime Elevation Speakers are at an optimal height that radiates full-range sound to the listener without the frequency response limitations and perfect room conditions required of prevailing “ceiling bounce” height effects speaker designs.
Prime Elevation Speakers are also remarkably versatile, multi-purpose home theater speakers that deftly play the role of front, center, side surround, rear surround, and/or LCR speaker when ideal placement in a room isn’t possible.
SVS Takes Object-Based Surround Sound to New Heights
Home theaters running height channel speakers with Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, and Auro-3D represent the pinnacle of immersive home audio experiences. The prevailing approach to height effects speakers, bouncing sound off the ceiling from below, requires perfect room conditions and frequency response limiting of the speaker, which detracts from the overall experience.
An audio epiphany, the Prime Elevation line is a direct radiating height effects speaker concept with the charged dynamics, pinpoint accuracy, and subtle refinement of a high-end bookshelf speaker. Place these speakers high on a wall near the ceiling, and object-based surround sound can be enjoyed at full fidelity in any room, without the compromises of ceiling bounce or in-ceiling speakers. Finally, you get to enjoy a height effects speaker designed for breath-taking effects.
Amazingly Adaptable; Solves Countless Speaker Placement Challenges
The specially optimized angled front baffle, precisely tuned acoustics, high-end components, and innovative multi-angle wall bracket all combine to make the Prime Elevation Speakers the world's most versatile home theater speakers. Ingeniously engineered to address a multitude of room challenges, the Prime Elevation series is the perfect solution for imperfect room placement options.
Innovative Multi-Angle Wall Bracket for Easy Mounting Software
Since Prime Elevation Speakers are often mounted on a wall, SVS invented a no-fuss Multi-Angle Wall Bracket for hanging them in any of four directions: up or down-firing, and side or rear-firing. The world’s most versatile speaker deserves an equally flexible mounting solution so you get the best sound quality in any room, no matter how or where you decide you use your Prime Elevation.

Customer Reviews for SVS Prime Elevation Speakers - Pair
I had purchased my first towers speakers before I was aware of the SVS towers, otherwise I would have bought the SVS towers based upon how highly I regard the company and its business. I own/have owned many of the svs subwoofers (latest is the PB13-ultra) and I couldn't be happier. These speakers are highly recommended and I'd say the same for the other speakers even if I have yet to hear them.
Within minutes of getting home I had the box open and the speakers were connected to my front L/R where my Definitive BP9040s generally live. They sat on the floor and I aimed them at the listening position so I could test them, give them a little love, and to generally just make sure everything was on the up and up and was impressed by the quality of sound coming out of these considering the size, price, and "odd" form factor. My intention was to simply give them a quick test for a few minutes before I started drilling holes in my wall and I wound up putting them through a variety of music and movies and was really impressed by what I was hearing.
As two-channels speakers, they surprisingly(to me, at least) stood on their own. The slight angle on the front from the floor pretty much hit the perfect height for my listening position and provided a relatively wide sweet spot. The sound was natural and believable, and paired with a subwoofer, would provide a good 2.1 audio experience. I found they played music well(symphonic horns sounded natural, jazz cymbals were splashy and fun, and punk guitar sounded... like punk guitar...) the sound was great for some of the action scenes from my Deadpool UHD Blu-Ray, and my wife was impressed and continued to listen to them while I got up to start measuring and drilling.
I already know they're capable height channels from my previous experience at and my night was coming to a close, but I still gave them a listen without being able to calibrate them. They're very nice speakers and I can't wait to tune the system and REALLY appreciate them for the reason I purchased them.
The possible uses for the Elevations listed in the manual may initially seem like weird problems looking for solutions very few home theater spaces are perfect. The flexibility of these speakers and mounting positions could mean real solutions to people with odd needs, and overall I'm genuinely impressed with these speakers. I can't wait to get a second pair for front height.
With the design that is independent of the ceiling reflection, this must be the easiest step up to ATMOS/DTS:X for any HT enthusiasts.
Ever since I heard of Dolby Atmos I wanted to buy a new AVR with 4K compatibility (to go along with my Sony 940D 75" 4K display) and the ability to play Dolby Atmos/DTS-X soundtracks. The problem was I did NOT want to install in-ceiling speakers in my room nor did I want to have "ceil-bounce" speakers. When I saw the Prime Elevation Speakers advertised in Sound & Vision magazine and read the reviews from owners on this site, I knew this was what I wanted. I received two pair 4 days ago and installed them on my side walls (see photo) and I couldn't be happier with the results. They truly add a 3-D sound to my modest Home Theater room. I ended up placing them 3-4 feet (up Front and in the Rear) from my listening area and it is a perfect "dome of sound." Congrats to the engineers at SVS for an amazing design!
I purchased 5 of these for all positions in my 5.1 surround setup. They are being powered by Yamaha receiver and paired with a PB1000 sub.
The sound that these small speakers put out fill that whole room with ease. Movies boom, action is intense and I'm hearing background noises that I've never heard before. Music sounds equally amazing.
Thank you SVS for making such an amazing product that works in unique situations.
However, after I have installed it I know it is well worth in every penny I spend. The soundstage is much more dynamic and spacious. The 3D feeling in sound has been upgraded to another level. My BOSS also notice that and agree what I have done.
The staff in this company are also nice to help their customers because I always ask question for my system.
Keep heart and work!
