Product Information

High Performance Home Theater at Sound Bar Prices

The Prime Series satellite speakers were designed to challenge speaker convention, and the Prime Satellite 5.1 Package is no exception.

Leveraging SVS’s audio passion and expertise, these speakers exceed everything you might expect from such a small and versatile system, providing a truly world-class listening experience. No compromise. Paired with the acclaimed SB-1000 subwoofer and its 300 watts of power, this system delivers a complete multi-channel experience for movies and music.

Prime Speakers: Extreme Performance and Uncompromised Fidelity

Prime Satellite - Satellites Redefined: High-End Audio Gets Small

From the moment you feel the weight of the Prime Satellite Speaker, it becomes clear that no other speaker has ever offered this level of audiophile design, high-end components, and precise build quality. Jets thunder through the sky. Bullets graze your ears. Prime Satellites simply outclass the tiny and tinny surround speakers designed to be more form than performer. Prime Satellites revolutionize surround speakers — in fact, they employ many of the same components as their bigger brothers in the Prime and Ultra lines.

Strategically placed, Prime Satellites create awe-inspiring realism and seamless sonic transitions from front- to-back and side-to-side. When the lights dim and the score fades in, they flood your room with dynamic audio realism and action. Painstakingly voiced and sonically matched, Prime Satellites are designed to blend with SVS towers, bookshelves, or in a system all their own for endless listening possibilities. 

SB-1000 Subwoofer: Impressive, Deep, Clean SVS-Bass in an Inconspicuous 13" Cabinet

Like a stick of dynamite, the SB-1000 is easy to conceal — but its impact hard to ignore. It’s the most SVS-bass that can be condensed into a 13” package. Pumping out loads of fast, clean, bottom end — action-scene punches hit you right in the gut. When it’s time to party, your music comes to life—bass lines are tight and drum beats never muddy. Elegantly finished in premium black ash, gloss piano black, or gloss piano white, it fits with any décor. And yet, it’s small enough to tuck in a corner, if you need to keep it out of the way. Maximize the slam and impact of your home theater — with a minimal footprint.

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 of 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 each other while offering the best on and off-axis response, while maintaining phase coherency and razor sharp time domain behavior.

Absolutely awesome!
We’ve had them for a few weeks now and they continue to settle in and get better like a fine wine. These sound truly awesome for their size, and they have a very even frequency response. They’re not “hyped” in the highs, and the mid range representation in particular is perfect. Of course the real show stealer is the SB1000 sub which will literally shake the walls off of the foundation. I had to turn the sub down half way to balance it to the room response and the rest of the speakers. Overall I couldn’t be happier with these, and look forward to one day upgrading to even bigger and better SVS speakers. If you happen to know about/own any music studio monitors for music production, these are extremely similar to Focal monitors which are some of my favorite studio monitors.

NIOCEEEEE
i have purchased these 2 years ago, and never left a review. i like to Waite, and see if they last as predicted. well, they are very nice. i have pushed them very hard, but never over the max. they are clear, loud, and responsive. for the unexpansive price, they are worth all of it in quality and performance. for those that are not sure, just make sure you have amplifier and/or receiver that matches rms scale of the power required. just gotta remember garbage in is garbage out. i used the pioneer 850 almost perfect, and i know the speakers can handle some more. all and all, they are great, sound very good, i mean really good, oh yeah, just ordered the prime tower speakers and, well i know, they are gonna sound great. thanks all, these are very good for a dollar, and not 10's of thousands.

Beautiful Product, Sublime Sound
Great sound out of a simple yet sophisticated designed product. Since this purchase I’ve added a prime center channel and a second SB-1000 Pro sub. I’m officially a SVS fan!

Perfect for a mid-size room
Paired this speaker set with a Denon AVR and the result is a spectacular improvement over the all-in-one being used before. The bookshelf size is deceiving considering the powerful sound they generate, and thank you to Rob at the Ardmore location for steering me toward the best value within my budget. Next up- a larger screen to match the size of the sound field!

Just installed the Prime 5.1 system!
Just installed the Prime 5.1 system with a Sony STR-DN1080 and just wow! I'm so in love with this system coming from a box surround sound system this is incredible. Even though the SB-1000 is a killer sub I might have to add another one on plus the atmos speakers. Shout out to Andrew Robinson on youtube which is how I came across these beauties.

Love them !
I bought the 2.1 system and I couldn’t be more happier! I have wanted these speakers for a long time and I finally have them and they are even better sounding than I thought! I can’t wait to add on to this system.

Best 2ch music ever heard
I actually had the 5.1 prime sat system but used the 2.1 part of it in my media room for my 2 ch music. I chose a 90hz crossover on the SATs to work with the sb1000 sub. The sub1000 does an amazing job and is extremely musical. The clarity and details form the SATs paired with sb1000 sub is great combo for a small to medium room and have a small foot print.

How high off floor should you mount speakers?
