Product Information

Immersive Surround Sound Experience

High-definition movie and multi-channel music soundtracks demand a high-performance surround speaker. The Ultra Surround Speakers rise to the challenge, delivering immersive and thrilling surround sound effects rivaling the finest commercial cinemas. Finished in premium-grade piano gloss black and real black oak veneer, and featuring compact driver arrays with 45-degree baffles and a shallow cabinet depth, the Ultra Surround line integrates seamlessly into any upscale home theater.

Unique and Flexible Surround Sound Modes

For the ultimate in flexibility, the Ultra Surround can operate in three different surround sound modes:

  • Bipole - both sets of drivers in phase
  • Dipole mode - both sets of drivers out of phase
  • Duet mode - each set of drivers receives a discrete signal

Duet mode creates two separate speakers within one cabinet, allowing true 7-channel surround sound with just two surround speakers instead of the more common four. Duet mode is very useful for enthusiasts who want to experience discrete 7-channel surround sound, but who lack the space for a separate set of rear surround speakers.

The Ultra Surround Speakers also feature integral aluminum wall mounting brackets, with safety catch features that help prevent the speakers from being inadvertently dislodged.

Dramatic Styling Yields Sonic Benefits

The stylish Ultra Surround 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 baffles 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 Surround driver array features dual 1” aluminum dome tweeter and a 5.5” woofer.

Dual 1” Aluminum Dome Tweeter

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

Dual 5.5” Woofer

  • Delivers excellent midrange detail and radiated sound power with surprisingly punchy bass response
  • Composite glass-fiber cone with excellent stiffness/mass ratio that 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

SoundMatch Crossover Intelligently Designed for Your Listening Room

The Ultra Surround features dual isolated crossover networks to allow for bipole, dipole, or the unique Duet operating modes. The SoundMatch 2-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 outstanding total radiated sound power.

Exactly what I was looking for
It was time for me to replace my worn-out rear surround speakers. Placement was a problem because my rear wall only extends about a third of the way along the rear of my listening room which caused me to have both left and right rear speakers on one side of the rear wall. So as I was researching for replacement speakers, I came across the Ultra Surround speakers with DUET mode. The DUET mode let me purchase just one speaker to replace the two I had with the benefit of having a much cleaner appearance with the single speaker box. Not only did I not have to buy a second speaker for the rear wall, the speaker's performance is outstanding and a nice upgrade, I'm so pleased, now I'm thinking about upgrading my surround speakers also with the Ultra Surrounds.

great speaker .the only thing that didn't like too well was the wall mounting bracket doesn't leave enough room for banana plugs (the ones i have anyway).svs is making some of the best speakers I've heard in my life of almost 50 yrs. how they get so much bass out of 5.5 driver beats me.i will be buying from svs again. i'm using this in the rear center position,using the left right rear output for 7.1 set wonderfully

I shouldn't have worried...
Some of you may be familiar with "Z Reviews" on YouTube. He did a video on surround speakers, in which he claimed that buying high quality surrounds is a waste of money, because surround content is so limited compared to the front channels. I respectfully disagree. In fact, until recently I had been using a pair of B&W 801 Series 2 speakers as surrounds in my home theater. While such use hardly takes advantage of the 801's full capability, I have no doubt that I wouldn't have achieved the same levels of clarity and impact from a lesser speaker. However, all was not perfect. One disadvantage of using a conventional forward firing speaker such as the 801 as a surround is that the sound source is too easily localized to the speaker. I find it ironic that a speaker which is capable of creating a wide 3D image when used in a properly set-up 2 channel system becomes a point source when used as a surround. And, by "point source," I mean you can point to the source of sound - it's right there, emanating from the speaker sitting off to your side. So much for imaging. Surrounds, IMO, should create a more diffuse soundfield. This is what drew my attention to the Ultra surrounds. I heard them in a demo and was impressed. But, would I feel I was trading off truly great audio performance for a more pleasing soundfield if I swapped out the 801s for the Ultras? I shouldn't have worried. The Ultra's are easily in the same league as the B&Ws. Yes, the balance is quite different, with the 801's 12 " woofer vs the Ultra's dual 5.5 inchers it would be insane if they were close, but the clarity, the impact, and what I like to call "crispness" are all there. What's not there, or what's greatly reduced, is the "point source" aspect of the sound, and that's a wonderful thing! One more thing I shouldn't have worried about is the Ultra's appearance. I know everyone raves about the gloss finish on SVS speakers, and rightfully so. However, the last thing I wanted in my projector based home theater was a highly reflective box on the wall. With that in mind, I ordered the black ash finish. At the time, I felt I was buying the poor step-child, finish wise, but that I'd just have to accept it as a necessary compromise. Well... I'm happy to report they are beautiful! The photos on the SVS site don't do them justice. Professional reviewers sometimes end a review by saying they were so impressed they bought the item under review. I'm so impressed that not only am I keeping these, I'll be adding a second pair as rear surrounds. Great job SVS!!

I bought the Ultra Surrounds and the Ultra Center Speakers. Fantastic speakers. My old speakers never sounded like this. I'm seriously thinking about getting the Ultra fronts also. Highly recommended.
