Prime Tower Speaker - Each (Premium Black Ash)

Pillar of Performance; Stereo to Cinema

Delivering immersive, full-spectrum sound, the Prime Tower Speaker anchors an amazing listening experience. The combination of both sonic accuracy and lively dynamics elevates movies to an immersive experience and highlights the subtle nuances of your music. It is remarkable on its own in a two-channel system and in a home theater, and its voicing seamlessly melds with the other Prime or Ultra speakers in your system. The result: a suspension of reality that takes you to the center of the action — be it a mosh pit or jet-fighter cockpit. Dialogue and vocals are clear and true, and bass grooves and explosions will rock the room.

With its twin 6.5 inch woofers, you don’t need a standalone subwoofer if space won’t allow. Should you have the room — and want the additional depth and dimension a dedicated subwoofer provides — the Prime Tower Speaker pairs well with several SVS subwoofers, like the award-winning SB-2000.

With a detailed aluminum dome tweeter, dedicated midrange driver, and dual long-throw woofers, the Prime Tower Speaker effortlessly cranks out clean, dynamic, and powerful sound. The innovative and sophisticated 3.5-way crossover has different crossover points for each woofer to deliver seamless frequency response with effortless low frequency extension. Translation – awesome bass response and a smooth, seamless transition to the midrange.

SVS took the 3.5-way crossover concept a step further – each woofer has a dedicated and completely separate internal compartment with its own custom port tuning frequency. The result is effortless, deep bass you need to hear in person to fully appreciate. Similarly, the 4.5” midrange driver is mounted in its own dedicated and completely sealed compartment to ensure a smooth, precise, and clear midrange, free from standing wave coloration. All this tech is packed into a handsome and sleek cabinet available in premium-grade piano gloss black or handsome black ash finish.

SVS Drivers Extreme Performance and Uncompromised Fidelity

The proprietary SVS drivers utilize the finest materials and design features to ensure the highest sound quality and performance. The Prime Tower Speaker driver array features a 1” aluminum dome tweeter, a 4.5" midrange driver, and dual 6.5" woofers.

1” Aluminum Dome Tweeter

Light, efficient, and rigid, providing high SPL (Sound Pressure Level) with minimal distortion and the sense of utter transparency, a 1" aluminum dome tweeter deploys a Finite-Element-Analysis (FEA) optimized diffuser to ensure it only has the perfect on-axis and off-axis frequency response. That way, everyone in your listening room gets the best performance. Likewise, since these design traits are also found in the SVS Prime and Ultra speakers, both product lines can blend well with one another while offering that SVS hallmark ‘airy’ presentation and incredibly unveiled highs.

4.5” Midrange Driver

Dedicated to blending with the tweeter and the dual 6.5” woofers, while delivering natural, smooth, and clear vocals, the 4.5 midrange driver features a polypropylene cone that is light and rigid to give a flat frequency response and the SPL necessary to keep up with the other drivers. Like all of the other woofers in the Prime and Ultra series, the 4.5” mid uses an aluminum shorting ring for reduced distortion, and a vented voice coil former to keep the motor assembly cool during high SPL playback.

Dual 6.5” Woofers

SVS built their groundbreaking new 6.5” bass woofers on an all-new cast ABS-fiberglass composite basket for precise component alignment and an inert frame without resonances or added harmonics. Like all of the other drivers in the Prime family, the polypropylene cone is light and rigid to give a flat frequency response and the SPL necessary to keep up with the other drivers. Like all of the other woofers in the Prime and Ultra series, the 6.5” woofers use aluminum shorting rings for reduced distortion, and vented voice coil formers to keep the motor assemblies cool during high SPL playback. For perfect bass extension, each woofer is in its own rear-ported and individually tuned enclosure. This way, each woofer works in symphony to achieve the deepest and cleanest bass possible.

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 innovative and sophisticated 3.5-way crossover is unique in that each woofer has its own discrete crossover, doubling the number of components used for the bass section, and allowing the woofers to work together without lobing in the vertical axis, which can cause cancellations at the listening area, and instead improves radiated sound power.



Prime Center Speaker (Premium Black Ash)

Clear Dialogue; Seamless Soundstage

A center speaker has a challenging part to play. It has to be a soloist — delivering clear and natural dialogue across a broad soundstage. A split second later, it has to fill the role of back-up band — melding with the ambiance of the environment to contribute realism in movies and music. The Prime Center Speaker delivers on both of these demands with world-class precision via its 1” aluminum dome tweeter, dedicated and independently sealed 3.5” midrange driver, and dual 5.25” woofers – a true three-way design that is a rarity for center channel speakers in their price class. Voicing is neutral and natural, bringing dialogue and vocals forward just enough to be clear and intelligible. Yet, when called on to play its part in transitions  — like a jet fighter soaring across the sky from left rear channel to front right—it blends in to create a smooth, realistic transition. Elegantly styled like its Prime siblings, the Center will look beautiful in any listening environment.

Superior Technology and Design - Amazing Sound and Performance

Borrowing liberally from the flagship Ultra Center, the Prime Center channel features a true 3-way center channel with a vertically-aligned tweeter and midrange driver. This eliminates comb filtering and lobing in the horizontal axis – resulting in crystal clear dialogue at all listening positions in the room. Now everyone will have a ‘sweet spot’ and won’t have to strain to hear dialogue.

The dual 5.25” woofers deliver a full and rich sound, doing full justice to deep male voices and delivering plenty of punch on special effects. And to make sure those beefy woofers can’t modulate the delicate and critical midrange frequencies, the midrange driver is mounted in its own dedicated and completely sealed compartment.

Available in premium-grade piano gloss black or handsome black ash finish, the Prime Center is handsomely styled and tells the world you’re serious about high performance home theater.

SVS Drivers Extreme Performance and Uncompromised Fidelity

The proprietary SVS drivers utilize the finest materials and design features to ensure the highest sound quality and performance. The Prime Center Speaker driver array features a 1” aluminum dome tweeter, a 3.5" midrange driver, and dual 5.25" woofers.

1” Aluminum Dome Tweeter

Light, efficient, and rigid, providing high SPL (Sound Pressure Level) with minimal distortion and the sense of utter transparency, 1" aluminum dome tweeter deploys a Finite-Element-Analysis (FEA) optimized diffuser to ensure it only has the perfect on-axis and off-axis frequency response. That way, everyone in your listening room gets the best performance. Likewise, since these design traits are also found in the SVS Prime and Ultra speakers, both product lines can blend well with one another while offering that SVS hallmark ‘airy’ presentation and incredibly unveiled highs.

3.5” Midrange Driver

The 3.5” mid-range driver is dedicated to blending with the tweeter and the dual 5.25” woofers, while delivering natural, smooth, and clear vocals. The polypropylene cone is light and rigid to give a flat frequency response and the SPL necessary to match the other drivers. Like all the other woofers in the Prime and Ultra series, the 3.5” mid uses a vented voice coil to keep the motor assembly cool during high SPL playback. All of this is built on an all-new cast ABS-fiberglass composite basket for precise component alignment and an inert frame without resonances or added harmonics. Finally, the 3.5” driver is housed in a dedicated and tuned sub-enclosure to ensure the output is not distorted or colored by the flanking woofers.

5.25” Woofers

SVS built their groundbreaking new 5.25” bass woofers on an all-new cast ABS-fiberglass composite basket for precise component alignment and an inert frame without resonances or added harmonics. Like all of the other drivers in the Prime family, the polypropylene cone is light and rigid to give a flat frequency response and the SPL necessary to keep up with the other drivers. Like all of the other woofers in the Prime and Ultra series, the 5.25” woofers use aluminum shorting rings for reduced distortion, and vented voice coil formers to keep the motor assemblies cool during high SPL playback. For perfect bass extension, both woofers share the majority of the rear ported cabinet volume, which is tuned for maximum bass extension.

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 3-way crossover is uniquely tuned so each driver can blend perfectly each other while offering the best on and off-axis response. Likewise, by virtue of using a dedicated midrange driver, vocals are preserved perfectly and presented naturally and clearly for all dialog in center channel soundtracks.



Prime Satellite Speakers - Pair (Premium Black Ash)

Accurate, Convincing, High-End Sound

From the moment you feel the weight of the Prime Satellite Speaker, it becomes clear that no other satellite 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 Satellite Speakers simply outclass the tiny and tinny surround speakers designed to be more form than performer. These speakers revolutionize the concept of sound speakers - in fact, they employ many of the same components as their bigger brothers in the Prime and Ultra lines.

Strategically placed, Prime Satellite Speakers 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 Satellite Speakers are designed to blend with SVS towers, bookshelves, or in a system all their own for endless listening possibilities.

SVS Drivers Extreme Performance and Uncompromised Fidelity

Leveraging design and technology from the SVS Ultra family, the Prime Satellite Speakers feature high-quality drivers and crossover components simply not found anywhere else in this segment.

1” Aluminum Dome Tweeter

The 1" aluminum dome tweeter, which is light, efficient, and rigid, provides high SPL (Sound Pressure Level) with minimal distortion and the sense of utter transparency. It deploys a Finite-Element-Analysis (FEA) optimized diffuser to ensure the tweeter only has the perfect on-axis and off-axis frequency response. That way, everyone in your listening room gets the best performance. Likewise, since SVS shares these design traits with both the Prime and Ultra speakers, both product lines can blend well with one another while offering that SVS hallmark 'airy' presentation and incredibly unveiled highs.

4.5” Woofer

SVS built their groundbreaking new 4.5” bass woofer on an all-new cast ABS-fiberglass composite basket for precise component alignment and an inert frame without resonances or added harmonics. Like all of the other drivers in the Prime family, the polypropylene cone is light and rigid to give a flat frequency response and the SPL necessary to keep up with the other drivers. Like all of the other woofers in the Prime and Ultra series, the 4.5” woofer uses aluminum shorting rings for reduced distortion, and vented voice coil formers to keep the motor assemblies cool during high SPL playback. For enhanced bass extension, the cabinet is rear-ported and tuned perfectly for the 4.5" woofer.

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. Likewise, by virtue of using a dedicated midrange driver, vocals are preserved perfectly and presented naturally and clearly for all dialog in center channel soundtracks.
