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.

Unbelievable performance for the money
After a lot of changes in life, I got to start all over with things like TVs, guitars, and a surround sound system. I had nabbed a nice pair of speakers used from a guy who barely played them. Good TV and a near top of the line Marantz receiver. I had plans to grow the system. I finally did a few years ago by getting the Prime 5.1 system. A friend worked at a retailer and said "unreal for the money". I bought them after listening to them at a store (Star Power) in Dallas. I figured they were good for now and would eventually go somewhere else in the house.

I brought them home and they integrated great with my speakers. Instantly I was happy. But the subwoofer. I cannot believe the entry level sub from this company does what it does. Background: I used to work for years at a mid-to-high end A/V retailer. We carried Martin Logan, Kef, Krell, and more. I owned Definitive Technology and Denon back then, including the SuperCube I sub.

This system was tight and musical when it needed to be, bombastic when called on for movies. Sounded great with DSD or vinyl or streaming movies or music. We do everything from jazz and classical to modern metal and alt rock to singer/songwriter. We're as varied in movie taste.

I'm hooked. When I think "eventual upgrade" SVS is the top part of my shopping list.

Unless I win the lottery, then it's something just stupid.

But my friend was right. Unreal for the price. Highly recommend.

Big Sound - Small Package
This is my first set of owning SVS, and I am not dissappointed! Utilizing these for desktop/office speakers paired with a 2.1 amp and they sound amazing! Not only do they sound great, but they look killer too (I got in piano black). 10/10 recommend.

These little (heavy) speakers sound amazing!
I have them running my 5.1 setup in my living room and even though I can only compare them to my Samsung 5.1 in a box from 2006, there is a crispness to the sound that I have never heard before. Highly recommend! Picking up a PC-2000 Pro subwoofer next week to compliment them.

Introduction and induction into the SVS World
I was first introduced to the SVS world when I reached my 40 year milestone at a large Aerospace Company. One of the many gifts they offered was an SVS Center Channel Speaker. I had been listening to my Center dying for about six months. I had to check out the SVS site……Hmmmm, maybe these folks are for real? I chose the SVS Center for my Milestone Gift. I’m at the prime level but what an incredible difference! My last Center was a step up for me at that time. Now I am able to enter into the actual world of incredible audio. A huge jump from the “mainstream” dealers, deals of the past. Mind you, I always felt the infinity’s and Yamaha’s were a good choice. Now I’m pretty much convinced. SVS Folks are focused on one thing, QUALITY. From the moment you open the box you see that you have arrived. Engineered, not just “creative”, packaging. Stout, incredibly exterior finish. But it’s all about the sound….so nice. I recently purchased the Prime Satellite 2.1 system. My Yamaha Sub did well but was on it’s last legs. My rears were old 80’s Fischer’s. I needed the Sub and why not catch the deal on the Satellites for my new rears! Man, what a difference a day makes. So nice to have graduated to real, quality audio. Now, if I could just get a deal on the SVS Bookshelf Speakers……Glenn

Little speaker big sound
These woke up my surround. Had a cheap set of the copper guys that seemed to kind of get lost sometimes. These little guys sound bigger than they are and after running audyssey blend right in perfectly

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.

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!
