Product Information

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.

Excellent and clever design
I have Kef R series and have used the Q series for the atmos/DTS:X height, but much of the sound is lost due to the fact that the tweeters aren't angled towards the ear, so I decided to buy the Prime elevation speakers. These speakers are fortunately much smaller than the Q series I used, and of course they are angled. The ports are in the rear which sounded very odd when I first ran the adyssey mic setup, but the room correction software leveled the frequency section which made the prime elevation speakers completely match my kef r series, and I am happy to know that a lot of bass response is available when needed.

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.

Performance, flexibility, and value
I had demoed a set of these speakers in a friend's home theater configured as height speakers, which prompted me to almost immediately sell my upfiring Atmos-enabled Definitive A90s and order a pair of these as direct radiating height speakers for my own home. I'm lacking a bit currently since I'm only running a pair of them for now, but a second pair will DEFINITELY be ordered in the near future. The speakers arrived last night and there was no waiting for me to connect 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.

Design allows versatile placement
My room is less than optimal for an Atmos setup, ceiling speakers are not an option. I never bought into the ceiling bounce speakers either since I have exposed concrete and ducts in my listening space. I immediately wanted to try these out as side height speakers and got 4 of them. The are incredible speakers, don't let the size fool you. I am now finally enjoying Atmos and DTS:X content!! Now i have to find time to watch all my movies that have Atmos again!

Excellent Sound
These speakers have elevated my sound system to another level. I already owned Onkyo atmos enabled speakers which I already thought were great,but I decided to try these on a trial basis. Needless to say I am not returning these SVS elevation speakers. The price was more than worth it.

SVS Prime Elevation Speakers - A Great Alternative To Ceiling Speakers for ATMOS and DTS:X
SVS have come up with a rather neat alternative to ceiling speakers. A non fussy-multi functional pair of PRIME Elevation speakers that recreates the ATMOS and DTS:X effects by upfiring the sound directly towards the listener. Easy to install, calibrated within minutes before you can experience the ATMOS in your home.

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.

I am no stranger to SVS, for I purchased their amazing PC-12 sub several years ago and am completely satisfied with its performance. I also want to give a shout-out to their exceptional service, for when the PC-12 arrived the amp was bad and they sent me a new one within 2 days with detailed instructions on how to replace it with the defective amp. I have also asked them a plethora of various questions and their expertise is second-to-none.

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 was looking for some front height Atmos speakers for my 7.2 setup and had auditioned another option before the SVS Prime Elevations. Once I had them in my setup, I knew that is what I was looking for. The clarity and detail you can get from these little guys are amazing. It truly enhanced the sound field and gave me what I was looking for in our home theater area for Atmos. I am very happy with the purchase, ease of setup (wonderful mounting hardware included) and of course the sound they produce. Great job SVS.

Outstanding Home Theatre Speakers
I had placement issues in my new home. All of my home theater speakers had to mounted at approx. 9' high in my family room with approx. 22' high cathedral ceilings. I emailed SVS support about their recommendation for speakers and mounting. Fortunately they told me about these awesome speakers.
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.

SVS prime elevation speakers
I have used a whole set of ultra speakers system with subwoofer for more than few years. I remembered that I asked SVS that they had the ceiling speakers for atmos one or two years ago, but the answer was regretful. To be honest, I won't regular check the SVS website for the update and recently I scan it to notice this elevation speaker. Then I search the information and find that the comment is good for the atmos. Finally, I buy this and design to upgrade my gears: pre-amp, power amp to suit the 7.1.4! It is a big project because it is not just the financial issue also the manual force issue. I need to sell the old gears and take the heavy power amp to change a new one. I need to stick the PVS tube on the wall to hide the ceiling speaker cable and drill the wall to secure the elevation speakers (That's the most important part not just the manual output and also need to be agreed by my BOSS at home!).
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!
Good job!
