Product Information

The Foundation for High-End Home Theaters

The Ultra Center Speaker anchors the front stage and immerses the listener in the cinema experience, effortlessly handling the most complex and dialogue-intensive scenes with stunning realism, room-filling presence, and outstanding vocal reproduction and dialogue intelligibility. Available in premium-grade piano gloss black and real black oak veneer finishes and handsomely styled with a swept-back profile and striking edge treatments, the Ultra Center Speaker will complement any high-end home theater.

Dramatic Styling Yields Sonic Benefits

The Ultra Center Speaker cabinet design yields numerous sonic benefits. The non-parallel cabinet panels reduce standing waves within the cabinet, effectively eliminating frequency response coloration. The wedge-shaped front baffle and flush-mounted drivers reduce edge diffraction and improved on-axis high frequency response. Even the grille design is FEA-optimized to maximize acoustic transparency.

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 Ultra Center Speaker driver array features a 1" aluminum dome tweeter, a 4" midrange driver, and dual 6.5" woofers. The vertically aligned tweeter and midrange improves horizontal axis polar response, with reduced lobing and comb filtering for a smooth frequency response and excellent dialogue intelligibility at all listening positions.

1” Aluminum Dome Tweeter

  • Utilizes an FEA-optimized diffuser which delivers a very open 'airy' presentation and extremely unveiled highs
  • Delivers a sound stage so pure and free of artifacts that you'll swear the performers are in the room

4” Midrange Driver

  • Composite glass-fiber cone with excellent stiffness/mass ratio, which improves sensitivity and maintains pistonic behavior well beyond the pass-band of the driver
  • Vented voice coil former to minimize air compression artifacts at high drive levels
  • Aluminum shorting ring to reduce gap inductance, lower distortion, and improve high frequency response
  • Cast aluminum basket to ensure precise alignment of critical components and enhance heat-sinking capacity

6.5” Woofers

  • Delivers amazing dialogue clarity and detail with powerful room-filling presence and projection
  • Long-stroke motor and suspension for low distortion and high output capability
  • Heavy-duty voice coil for enhanced power handling and thermal management
  • Vented voice coil former to minimize air compression artifacts at high drive levels
  • Aluminum shorting ring to reduce gap inductance, lower distortion, and improve high frequency response

SoundMatch Crossover Intelligently Designed for Your Listening Room

Careful selection of the crossover frequency and slopes results in a smooth off-axis polar response, outstanding phase coherency, and a stable soundstage. Naturally the SoundMatch crossover network also features premium-grade capacitors, air-core inductors, and heavy-trace printed circuit boards to ensure pure signal transmission.

Love the way it sounds and looks and feels, maybe I'm weird.
I believe that this center channel really brings my home theater system to another level. Image, vocals/ dialog is spot on. The ultra series finish is top notch. I had my left and right speakers are the prime pinnacle towers and system seems to be more rounded over all . Wish I was able to afford the ultra towers after experiencing this center channel speaker. Not to take away from the pinnacle towers, they sound phenomenal, just love the finish on the ultra series.

SVS & World Wide Stereo...2-Companies =Both First Class??
Long story short, I’m 57 and permanently disabled with paralysis from a broken neck in 3-places. On 12/10/18, Fire Alarms rang out all over the house. I was in the room over the garage, my bedroom & media room. Fire started in garage (electrical) Smoke & Flames broke through floor before I could find canes. I got up and fell down and used my arms to crawl to door at top of the stairs. My stair chair was in the way, so i said a prayer ( literally ) & dove head first down 19 stairs as the floor collapsed beneath me. I was rushed to hospital & transferred to UNC BURN CENTER in a COMA for 3 weeks and 2 months in ICU total. I bought speakers from WWS for my MAN CAVE above garage, including JAMO, DEF TECH, YAMAHA, and more. I stayed in touch over the years and they remembered me & provided A++ Customer Service. WWS’s KNOWLEDGE, SKILLS, and POSITIVE ATTITUDE are UNMATCHED by any ONLINE COMPANY. My MAN CAVE burned to the ground and so did 2 Floor Standing Jamo’s, 3 60” Plasmas, Definitive Technology Speakers, Yamaha Receiver, and much more. A GOFUNDME site opened and shows the fire & explosions. I’m thankful to be alive and have to start all over. I have no insurance as I lived with my sister, so it’ll take years to replace it all. I’m probably going SVS after much research and listening to them. They make a very High Quality Speaker and I hope to make it part of an 9.2 or 11.2 setup. I can’t say enough positive things about WWS and their products + Customer Services. The people, products, Management, and overall Service is second to none?? Ever call and be put on hold forever? Not at WWS. You’ll be super pleased if you decide to use them & SVS SPEAKERS & SUBS are simply the best IMO. Thank you to WWS for providing the best Customer Service I’ve experienced Online and for helping me build my first Media Room. I pray I’ll be able to build another one as our burned down house is being rebuilt from the ground up.
