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

The SoundMatch 3-way crossover features premium-grade capacitors, air-core inductors, and heavy-trace printed circuit boards to ensure pure signal transmission. 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.

Exceptional
Absolutely everything I wanted, and I replaced a damn good center in the process that I'll repurpose to another room. Couldn't be happier. The clarity and dynamics of this center make this easily the best center I've purchased, and I'm a 53-year old lifelong audiophile. My only complaint is that I didn't pull the trigger on this a year ago when I first decided to replace my center. With my SVS Ultra Towers and PB-3000, my system is rocking. Now all I need is to replace my 4 surrounds, which will happen in due time, with SVS Ultras and a couple of satellites for the pool (if they fix the app). SVS customer service is best-in-class, without question, and these guys ship faster than even Amazon. Ordered on a Thursday or Friday. Expected to wait about a week to receive but was pleasantly surprised when the center showed up on Sunday. Perfect experience. Perfect center. Perfect shopping experience. A+ all the way around.

Great clarity and depth; no
Great clarity and depth; no frequency range sounds hollow or constrained. I upgraded from a premiere center speaker (another brand) and am very glad that I did. No buyer's remorse; even though I had never thought I would spend this much on a speaker. I contemplated going for the prime centers; but then went ahead with the ultras. Is it twice as good as primes? I wouldn't know; but because it is very good, I am happy. I also wasn't sure about the finish to choose; not much fan of glary finishes; but this one looks very good.

I have the PB 4000,
I have the PB 4000, two ultra towers, four prime elevations, the prime center and now the ultra center. Still waiting for break in on the ultra center. Ultra towers are awesome each time I listen to them the better I've them. I watch a lot of movies and also listen to a lot of music. To be honest I very rarely ever use the pb4000. The ultra towers just really sound great and the bass is right there. My only complaint about SVS is their price hike coming. They will lose me as a customer once this goes into effect.
