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.
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.

I Turned My 2 car garage into A/V Room, I'm retired so all the work was done by me, at the lowest cost possible. I was using vintage amps and speakers in my home theater set up but finally moved up to a new 7.2.4 amp. it sounded OK..... Nothing to compare it to ! I saw the SVS Pinnacle Prime speakers on You Tube and was impressed, So I bought Two and one center speaker.....WOW... what a difference in the sound quality !!!! Figured I'd better keep improving, so I purchased The Prime Elevation and prime Satellite for the surround side and rear. AGAIN... What a Difference..... Great Sound at a Great price, Ron Holmes In Washington State
This is my 3rd pair of SVS Prime Elevations. I use them as my surround -due to an open floor plan. The last two pairs are used as front heights and rear ceiling for ATMOS. I’ve been a loyal fan of SVS since 2009. Fantastic customer service and technical support.
Just finished installing these speakers…long runs into the high ceiling. Wow! I was missing out on the full rich sound even though I thought I was satisfied. I described the sensation as being in the matrix of blissful joyous music. Thanks to son Robert who persuaded me to get the prime elevation speakers. My New AVR is a NAD 758, fronts are B&W’s 683/S2 and SVS 2000 cylinder woofer and matching B&W center. Next step is room calibration! I want to thank the SVS staff for their first class customer service through some returns I had with my woofer buzz/hum noise. In the end it was actually an issue issue with my older NAD. I confessed the issue and they said it was all good. Great team work!
Currently using for rear back surrounds in a 7.1 setup. The sound is accurate and has a good wide dispersion for this purpose. Will consider moving these as side heights or just purchasing another pair later for that purpose.
The best all around speaker; whether mounted on a wall or ceiling, you will never find a speaker so versatile. And let's not forget the price; which is more than reasonable. I purchased 3 pair of elevation speakers and looking forward to purchasing the Ultra series. SVS supplies all your needs in every purchase. A home grown company....love their products and customer service. Look no further SVS has you covered
good quality but too small for my system i bought focal in walls foir my atmos surrounds i do have two of your subs love them also have another sub on my smaller system was thinking of your top of line center channel speaker but decided on mcintosh or revel thanks i through away the boxes so i know i cant return them thanks jon d.
This is my second pair of Svs prime elevation speakers, and I am very satisfied with their proformance and flexibility. I also want to give a shout out to svs customer service, for helping me resolve a problem not related to their product, but with my system wiring.
Finished out my SVS system by replacing my rear speakers with the prime elevation speakers. They work very well for that and give me rear SVS speakers to go along with the ultra system I had purchased and 2 PB 2000 pro subs. They match nicely with the rest of the SVS system. Very happy with all of it.
I have 6 Prime Elevations for height channels in my living room. The sound is fantastic. They are easy to mount with bracket that comes with the speakers. I have the gloss white Elevations, and they blend in well with the ceiling and walls. The Elevations are crystal clear, and have a great range. I highly recommend these speakers.
Wanted to improve my move from 7.1 to 5.1.2 (4K Atmos generated need). Had some rear speakers I elevated to about 18" above ears, but felt there were better options. Looked at in ceiling, replacing my Definitive front towers with up-firing ones and the Elevations. Online reviews were uniformly positive and with the 45 day "try" option, I figured this was an easier solution. Sound quality from these speakers were much better than the rears I replaced (Polk TL2). Did a temp solution to test them out, was reasonably impressed. Then finally mounted them near the top of my 7'ceiling, above the front towers, the results were great. I know 5.1.4 would likely be more impressive, but I'm limited to the 7 main speakers with my AVR and no desire to replace that in the near term. I'm very happy and can agree with everything I saw on Youtube and read on various forums. Good Job SVS!
Beautiful speakers with the piano finish. Perfect size for my room. I mounted them as front height speakers. Put in my Bladerunner 2049 4K Blu-ray and the sound was wonderful. Great movie to test my new speakers and they did not disappoint
The SVS Prime Elevation/Presence speakers are very good small speakers on their own, but they shine as addition to to a multichannel system as presence speakers. My ultimate goal is to incorporate them for Dolby Atmos and DTS-X add-ons. I don't have a Atmos or DTS-X processor right now, so I am using them as presence with my Yamaha processor. I also liked the mounting bracket and the versatile installation and mounting options with this speaker. In addition to my two SVS subwoofers, these little speakers are another welcome addition to my system. Thank you Gary Yakoubian and the rest of the SVS technicians and staff. Sami Erdogan
I replaced my old bookshelf speakers with the elevation speakers and oh boy am I happy with the new speakers they fit so well with my setup. I'm getting EPIC sound that really shows when I play dolby atmos movies. I LOVE these speakers!
Great speakers at a great price with standard awesome SVS quality, amazing!
The Prime Elevations are capable, small, amazing little speakers. Their stereo imaging is superb, whether I used them as a stereo pair or in a 5.1 with a center, the sound stage was nearly identical. Their off axis is uncolored, I heard no difference right on top of them near field or further back, even behind them still gave clear results. The ports help beef up the low end without bloating, obviously, you'll need a sub for full dynamic range. Testing them as front speakers currently as my towers are in storage, but they sound almost as good as them as far as clarity, detail, and imaging, just not as full in the mid range and low end, of course. I almost feel bad relegating these to height speakers in my Atmos setup when I install them as such, almost too capable for that. They are all I'll ever need from ceiling speakers without having to worry about cutting holes or getting boxes to contain sound, or getting ones that you can angle, all already taken care of. The experience started with the unboxing though, the level of care SVS took, wrapping everything, covering screws and silica packers in soft foam so they don't scratch anything...just top notch packaging. You can tell they care, in everything they do. It's part of what you are paying for, not to mention the freakishly fast ,helpful technical support. After getting my elevations, and a week later a PB 3000 sub, this is a company I want to support, and I'll be back when I want to upgrade/replace my towers, center and surrounds. And probably get another couple of subs. Not a review of the PB 3000, but all I'll say for now is, DAMN. It packs a lot of punch for it's price bracket.
This is my second set of prime elevations in gloss white. I’m using them for my surround rear and atmos height channels in my home theater. Firstly, these speakers are gorgeous. The fit and finish is perfect and the excellent build quality is apparent. They sound phenomenal. I have another brand that didn’t even come close as far as the sound quality. They’re clearer, the bass is punchier, mids and highs are much crisper. The customer support is excellent as well, I’ve contacted SVS twice, once about an order and another time about an accessory and both times they helped me and were a pleasure to deal with. I highly recommend these speakers and SVS.
The Prime Elevations truly rock! I will be purchasing 2 more when my stimulus payment arrives, along with a Voice of God top speaker to complete my Auro-3D 10.1 setup. I'm saving up for the Prime towers & center channel.
I just finished installing you PEs yesterday. Was waiting for a set of speakers stands that can go on top of my fronts to bring them higher w/o opening holes on the walls, run cables inside, etc. I recalibrated the system, used yours as two front heights and mine as two back Dolby's. After calibration, Marantz SR8012 11.2 channels with an MM2025 with 2 more channels 13.2. I maxed the Heights and the Dolby's to +12 dB and the surrounds I increased to +6 dBs. The end result is upstanding, especially when I hear the sound from your Prime Elevations. I recalibrated to keep note of the results and compared to my manual set up. Between 30 - 50 dB vol., I can hear every sound effect, whereas with calibration settings the vol. to hear details needs to be at least 60dB. I like the manual settings much better. I am sold on your Prime Elevations, gre8 style and excellent workmanship, awesome sound!!!
I'm a SVS subwoofer owner and fan and I will recommend those all day every day... My first experience with loudspeakers was just ok.
Prime Elevations in White - Finish - These are very well made and look great. The design is very good. Sound quality - Average at best. Highs and mids were too laid back and (not that I was expecting much) there is little bass to speak of. Disappointing for a $500 pair. Mounting - The mounting process is very simple and there are a variety of positions to suit most scenarios. Having said that, in both houses I've built with pre-wiring for discrete channels, the builders spooled the wire inside a standard gang box (switch / 2 outlet size). This mounting hardware affords no way to completely conceal the box. It's not big enough to straddle it and the mounting bracket is in a position that doesn't allow the speak to overhang it. Not a massive deal, but it does look messy, having the gang box cover sticking out from under it.
Summary - These are very easy to mount and fill the duty of a channel like height adequately. I would never use them for a front or primary surround channel due to sound quality.
I am new to Dolby atmos and I was recommended to svs by a friend and I couldn’t be happier with my purchase. I have 6 prime satellites a prime center channel and a pair of the elevation heights and a sb1000 but will soon be adding more I’m sure. Also I am running everything with a merantz sr8015 my setup is small but it sound incredibly compared to my last setup witch was a Samsung HW q90 sound bar. I would recommend svs to anyone that is looking for a great sounding setup and the subs are amazing. A+++
These speakers are amazing I have 4 of them mounted on the ceiling aimed at my mlp. Movies really come alive with the atmos effects these speakers can produce I would definitely recommend them to anyone for atmos.
After using my Atmos upfiring speakers for several years, I thought that the technology was no big deal and just a waste of money because I was not impressed at all. After a little research, I decided to give the technology another chance and purchased the SVS Prime Elevation speakers and what a difference! I finally know what Atmos home theater is supposed to sound like! I watched the Matrix and the thunder and rain along with many other scenes were absolutely enveloping me in a bubble of sound. If you don't have quality speakers like the Prime Elevations firing down, you will definitely not get the Atmos effect and miss out on an awesome home theater experience.
Bought for my living room. Had to wait a while due COVID shipping delays. But grateful for the communication svs was sending out to let me know where things were. Couldn’t be helped. Just good heads up and was really appreciated. When installed, got the wife’s seal of approval! They do look great. Sounds effects are clear and fun. Highly recommend. Great with music and movies. Came with all good hardware and great templates too... Only bought 2 should of bought 4. I did a lot of research and there is a lot of legit hype out there for these and now that I have mine... agree. Great product.
I swapped the SVS satellite as a center channel, with a Prime Elevation above the TV firing down, in a 3.1 system paired with Jamo's smallest sub (in an apartment). Pretty incredible. I have two more SVS satellites that I'm trying to find the best spot for on the side or rears. Hopefully, SVS engineers will find a solution for apartment/condo dwellers when it comes to bass and neighbors. I have the Jamo sitting on a Pyle floor pad. I would be first in line for a SB-500 or a couple SB-250s, with a neat mount, base, etc. for this problem. A ceiling, hanging bass module? Thanks again.
These are some great speakers, I’ve purchased 4. I have installed in two sets in two different rooms. One set as the front height speakers in a 7.1.2 system. The others as stereo speakers, on a wall with a tv located approximately 10ft off the ground. Both are great and have added superb sound to the system in different ways. The stereo setup has allowed listeners to hear a much cleaner/clearer sound than the Yamaha sound bar that was there prior. Dialogue along with music is clean and easily understood with far more enjoyment. The multichannel setup allows for an overhead effect that wasn’t available prior (even though they are mounted on the front sound stage wall which isn’t the most ideal placement). The multi channel setup utilizes ultra bookshelf’s, ultra center, ultra surrounds, energy eXL bookshelf as rear surround and SB-13 ultra, Pioneer Elite SC-95 . I would recommend these speakers highly to anyone considering them as a contender in their setup.
After reading all the reviews on this speaker I just had to try them to complete my 5.2.4 system and I can say they have not disappointed me. I will be getting two more to upgrade to a 7.2.4 system. Love them.
The elevation speakers are ALL that they are advertised to be. I was using some older speakers for my Atmos speakers and I wasn't satisfied that they were performing that well. I purchased the SVS Elevations and there was a night and day difference. A VERY satisfied Customer.
I love these speakers, i feel it was a great add to my setup. I am re-watching movies with atmos tracks to try and experience the differnce. Solid template for mounting the speakers and flexible options based on your needs.
